We recently got the news that the Jazz waived Paris Bass and Xavier Sneed. It’s not surprising the players were waived as we inch closer to training camp.

Speaking of training camp, we recently found out from Tony Jones the official date which is Tuesday, September 27th which is about a week away!
With the Donovan Mitchell trade now behind us, it’s time to take a look at the roster and update it with all the new players on the Jazz roster. On top of the three unprotected first round picks, the Jazz received Collin Sexton, Lauri Markkanen, and #14 overall pick, Ochai Agbaji.
This also reflects the changes from the Jazz sending the Los Angeles Lakers Patrick Beverley for Talen Horton-Tucker and Stanley Johnson.
The Utah Jazz roster is in complete flux after the Rudy Gobert trade that sent shockwaves throughout the NBA. You can bet that there will be more moves and as those moves happen, we’ll update this for future reference.
As it stands, Donovan Mitchell is still on this roster and, if training camp started today, he would be there. With all the rumored Donovan Mitchell trade talk happening, it feels more like we’re waiting to see when the trade happens rather than if. But if there’s one thing we’ve learned in Danny Ainge’s short time in Utah, he’s got the patience necessary to make the trade happen that he wants. It’s very possible we see Donovan Mitchell in a black and yellow Jazz jersey next season.
The other interesting thing with this Jazz roster is how many different players we’ll be seeing. Utah received 5 players in the deal for Rudy Gobert and, as of right now, they’ll all be at training camp.
