  • Raul Neto
    PG, Utah Jazz

    The Jazz have officially waived Raul Neto.

    Neto was a solid insurance policy for the Jazz but they needed to open up some salary room to complete the Mike Conley trade. Neto should land as a third-string point guard somewhere.

    PG, Utah Jazz

    The Jazz are reportedly planning to waive Raul Neto in order to complete the Mike Conley trade.

    Neto functioned as the team's third point guard last season but was elevated by yet another injury to Dante Exum. He shouldn't have issues finding a new NBA home as a depth player, but Utah will need Exum to stay on the court this season.

  • Derrick Favors
    PF, Utah Jazz

    Zach Lowe has reported that the Pelicans are closing in on a deal to sign Derrick Favors.

    This is an interesting move by the Pelicans, who already have a relatively deep frontcourt. That said, Favors could serve as a still-young mentor to these developing assets. Stay tuned.

  • Ed Davis
    PF, Utah Jazz

    Adrian Wojnarowski has reported that Ed Davis has agreed to a two-year, $10 million deal with the Jazz.

    Davis is a workhorse and a solid backup PF for the Jazz. He adds a touch of extra rebounding "oomf" off the bench as well. Unfortunately, Davis' fantasy value is still in the deep-league zone as a rebounding specialist.

  • Derrick Favors
    PF, Utah Jazz

    Derrick Favors has received interest from the Clippers, Knicks, Kings, Hawks and Mavs according to Tony Jones of The Athletic.

    After signing Bojan Bogdanovic it's clear that the Jazz will not pick up his team option, though the Favors camp has already been operating as though he's a UFA anyway. Favors can't space the floor like a lot of modern power forwards but he remains a strong, traditional player who can crash the glass, bang in the paint and score in the post. There's a place for that in the league, and Favors should be able to carve out something like 25 mpg wherever he winds up. Some destinations on that list make more sense than others but we'll wait on his decision before getting too in depth.

  • Joe Ingles
    SF, Utah Jazz

    According to Tony Jones, the Jazz plan on starting incoming free agent signee Bojan Bogdanovic at small forward, more than likely sending Joe Ingles to the bench in a sixth-man role.

    The Jazz plan to sign a power forward who can start, making Bogdanovic the logical choice to be their starting SF. Ingles' versatility will be an interesting boost to the Jazz's second unit. His ability to shoot the three, plus distribute the rock will help keep the Jazz's offense flowing. His value might take a slight hit, but Smokin' Joe will still be getting some solid minutes off the bench, so his cult fans in fantasy hoops need not fret too much.

  • Bojan Bogdanovic
    SF, Utah Jazz

    The Jazz and Bojan Bogdanovic have agreed to terms on a four-year, $73 million contract.

    Bogdanovic is a great get for Utah, as it gives them another capable perimeter defender and a true knock-down shooter. Adding him to the mix will help erase some spacing issues and should also help the team's playmaking efforts with his ability to move off the ball. Bogdanovic shot a blistering .497 from the field last season on his way to a career-high 18 points per game, and he should be a steady late-round fantasy player with the Jazz, even accounting for a decrease in usage.

  • Derrick Favors
    PF, Utah Jazz

    According to sources of Tony Jones of The Athletic, Derrick Favors is in a holding pattern while interested teams wait for clarity about what the Jazz will do with his team option.

    The Jazz are taking this decision all the way down to the finish line with just a couple hours to go before free agency officially begins. Favors is drawing interest from a handful of teams and it will be much easier for him to figure out his future once the Jazz decide what they want to do. We all should get an update soon.

  • Bojan Bogdanovic
    SF, Indiana Pacers

    Tony Jones of The Athletic is reporting that the Jazz will meet with Bojan Bogdanovic on Sunday afternoon.

    The Jazz have emerged as a major player in the Bogdanovic market, and they have since shelved their scheduled meeting with Bobby Portis until they get some resolution with Bogdanovic. Bogdanovic is coming off a career year where he shot 49.7 percent from the field and 42.5 percent from deep, and his addition would make the Jazz a much more dangerous team on either end of the floor.

  • Garrett Temple
    SG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated is reporting that the Nets are showing "strong interest" from Garrett Temple, with the Nuggets, Jazz and Rockets also in the mix.

    Temple faded after joining the Clippers last season but was a serviceable presence as Memphis' starting shooting guard prior to being traded. He's a 3-and-D asset and a great locker room presence, so we would imagine that his list of suitors extends beyond these four teams. A player like Temple would make for a nice bench addition on most rosters.

  • Ricky Rubio
    PG, Utah Jazz

    Marc Stein of the New York Times is saying that talk of a "virtual done deal" between the Pacers and Ricky Rubio has been circulating for a week.

    There were reports last night that Rubio and the Pacers were set to make a quick agreement on a contract, with Jazz beat writer Tony Jones calling a deal "highly likely" and Pacers beat writer J. Michael indicating that both sides intend to get something worked out. It would be a stunner if Rubio wasn't in Indiana next season.

  • Bojan Bogdanovic
    SF, Indiana Pacers

    The Jazz are a "significant threat" to sign Bojan Bogdanovic and could deliver him a competitive offer on Sunday, according to Tony Jones and Shams Charania of The Athletic.

    Jones' reporting has pointed to Bogdanovic becoming Utah's top free agent target, and he'd give them a knock-down shooter who can hang with most players on the perimeter. Bogdanovic is also thought to be a priority for the Pacers, but Utah may be able to out-bid the incumbent for Bogie's services. The Jazz could certainly use another shooter and Bogdanovic would be a very nice fit should they seal the deal.

  • Bojan Bogdanovic
    SF, Indiana Pacers

    According to Tony Jones, the Jazz have a significant interest in signing Bojan Bogdanovic in free agency.

    Bogdanovic makes sense as an FA signing for the Jazz, given that they traded away some of their best 3-point shooters (Jae Crowder, Kyle Korver) when they acquired Mike Conley. Bogdanovic should get a solid amount of usage as their main kick-out target, should both parties come to an agreement.

  • Bobby Portis
    PF, Washington Wizards

    Bobby Portis will meet with the Jazz when free agency opens, per Tony Jones of The Athletic.

    About 10 days ago Jones also reported that Portis has "significant interest" in joining the Jazz, and he would give the team a more dynamic look out of the four spot than incumbent Derrick Favors. He's said to be looking for $16 million annually and is also receiving interest from the Knicks, among others. Portis put together a career year last season and is looking to parlay that into a larger role with a bigger paycheck.

  • Ricky Rubio
    PG, Utah Jazz

    Marc Stein reported on Friday night that teams around the league view it as a "likely scenario" that Ricky Rubio ends up with the Pacers.

    Indiana could be a nice landing spot for Rubio who was a mixed bag the last few seasons with the Jazz. The news of Collison retiring only reinforces the possibility of Rubio ending up there.
