Assigning grades to the players on a rebuilding team is something that has to be done on a curve.

Such is the case for the Utah Jazz and the crop of young talent that took over when Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap were allowed to walk in free agency.

Five of Utah's top seven players in average minutes played are under the age of 24. And of those five, only Gordon Hayward had been a regular starter prior to this season.

For that reason, the 17-33 record hasn't come as much of a surprise, unless of course you expected them to be even worse.

So without the curve, a team with such a bad record would receive lots of C's, D's and F's. With the curve, we can look at some of the bright spots within the context of a rebuilding season.
