5 Players the Utah Jazz Should Target to Fill out the Roster for 2013-14

Now that the NBA's free-agency dust has settled and most of the big names are off the market, it's time for teams to fill out their rosters with specialists, minimum-salary guys and NBA hopefuls.

After the reported signing of John Lucas III becomes official, the Utah Jazz will have 11 players under contract. That leaves four more openings on the roster for the regular season.

With the starting lineup pretty much set (Trey Burke, Alec Burks, Gordon Hayward, Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter), Utah will, at most, be adding role players between now and the start of training camp.

The team could use some outside shooting (they were in the bottom third of the league in threes made last year), a veteran big man to bolster a very young front line of Favors, Kanter, Rudy Gobert and Jeremy Evans, and an experienced point guard to mentor rookie Trey Burke.

There are still some solid players on the market who fit those molds and would be able to provide mentoring and veteran leadership for a young team.
