Ranking the 2017 Utah Jazz Roster: From Least to Most Valuable

A (soon to be) tradition unlike any other.

I’d like to start an exercise as Utah Jazz fans that we can do on an annual basis. I’ve seen this done over on other sites (like Brew Hoop) and think it’s a great idea.

The point is this: we collectively rank our Utah Jazz players from the least valuable to the most valuable. This will be done one roster spot at a time, so cast your votes wisely. We’ll start at the bottom and work our way up every few days.

I understand there is some subjectivity to the word “value”. Define that how you will, but there are many things to consider when assessing the value of a player. How good are they now? How good could they become? How old are they? How much are they getting paid? How much longer are they under contract? Is that a guaranteed or non-guaranteed contract? Do they help us win? Are they a good locker room presence, leader, or have important relationships with the “most valuable” players? Do they have championship DNA? And on and on...

With the roster turnover this past year, it should be interesting to see how this plays out. Feel free to leave a comment on why you choose the player you do each time. Let’s find out what Jazz Nation feels about this roster as a whole!

The poll closes at 11:59pm on September 1st.
