Utah Jazz Offseason: What the Team Needs To Do To Return To Contention

The Jazz were headed to the postseason this year until the departure of coach Jerry Sloan and the trade of star point guard Deron Williams.

After those two events, the Jazz sunk back into mediocrity and have clinched just their second losing record in the past 28 seasons, which is quite a phenomenal feat.

They are also the first team in NBA history to miss the playoffs after starting the season 27-13.

On paper, the Jazz have an entertaining roster that is full of promise. Players such as Devin Harris, C.J. Miles, Derrick Favors, and Paul Millsap are all full of potential and Al Jefferson has shown that he is a 20-point, 10-rebound seasonal threat.

The Western Conference is by far the toughest of the two conferences, so the Jazz will need to work heavily to return to their postseason form.
