The Jazz have added Barnett Frank as their new Director of Performance.
Frank, the newest addition to the team's performance healthcare staff, was responsible for, "researching and implementing cutting edge technology and techniques" at UNC. The team says that Frank will "work on applying world-class performance science in order to enhance player readiness, recovery and rehabilitation." More and more teams are beefing up their sports science departments these days to try and get an extra edge. Hopefully Frank can keep the up-and-coming Jazz healthy – particularly Rudy Gobert, who missed 26 games last season. Gobert finished top-30 in per-game value last year but was outside the top-60 in total value, so a full season would land owners much closer to his ADP.
