Only two days away from the start of Utah Jazz training camp and media day. The G-League Salt Lake City Stars have held their tryouts, the Utah Jazz held their media day training camp (*Uncle Rico voice* “if they only put us in the game ...”), and now according to the Salt Lake Tribune’s Andy Larsen, the Utah Jazz have selected their Training Camp Roster.

It’s okay if you’re googling a lot of those names this season. The Utah Jazz are only returning seven players from last year’s roster. If it feels like whiplash, that’s because the prior year Utah only made one roster change. They moved on from Jonas Jerebko and drafted Grayson Allen.
This offseason, Dennis Lindsey adjusted the roster like an NBA2K GM set to simulate. The Utah Jazz traded for Mike Conley, moved on from Jazz stalwart Derrick Favors, fan favorite Ricky Rubio, and super sub Jae Crowder, signed Bojan Bogdanovic, Ed Davis, and Jeff Green, *big breath* drafted three players in the 2nd round, brought back Nigel Williams-Goss, and signed guard prospect Emmanuel Mudiay. All the while, Donovan Mitchell, Joe Ingles, and Rudy Gobert played in FIBA’s World Cup. It’s been a crazy summer.
Stay tuned to SLC Dunk on Monday, September 30th as we’ll have the latest media day news as the Utah Jazz
FINALLY kick off one of their most anticipated seasons in franchise history.
