Yes. The reactions to this news ranged from the professional . . .

I'm glad that the Jazz didn't forget to pick up Trey Burke and Rudy Gobert's options.— Andy Larsen (@andyblarsen) October 25, 2014
I expect that this isn't real news to anyone, but was a mere formality. Trey Burke's play in the preseason (aside from the Phoenix Suns game) was worth his weight in gold. He is so deadly when he is confident, and he takes care of the ball so well . . . dude makes Deron Williams look sloppy in comparison. Rudy Gobert is simply a force of nature that every other team in the league was a fool to not target in the NBA Draft.
Their rookie seasons are behind them, and look to make huge jumps this year. The "other" rookie from their draft class, Ian Clark, went undrafted and as such isn't limited to the same rules for his contract. So the Jazz did not need to make an announcement about his status, that was taken care of months ago.
Of course I am mentioning Clark here partly because I love the idea of him and Rudy as Rocky and Bullwinkle.

Okay, I need to finish packing for my flight now. Good night internet. I will miss you dearly. And man, the season is RIGHT around the corner. I bet the rest of you Jazz fans cant sleep either!
