6. Utah Jazz

At least in my opinion, the Utah Jazz is one of the most interesting teams to keep an eye on during the final few weeks of the regular season and then into the playoffs. If the Jazz doesn’t make a deep playoff run, it’ll be interesting to see what this front office elects to do this offseason.

I can’t imagine big changes won’t come if the Jazz doesn’t make it at least to the second round of the playoffs and probably has to make it beyond that.

Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert have been a capable duo so far over the past few seasons in the regular season. However, they’ve left much to be desired in the postseason.
