Utah Jazz Roster 2021 Utah Jazz Roster

52-20, 1st in West Northwest

Utah has been on the fringe of making some deep playoff runs and is one of the best defenses in the league. A big reason for that is Rudy Gobert in the middle as the top rim protector in the league. Utah added Bojan Bogdanovic in the offseason who is a strong wing player who has been one of the top three-point shooters in the game. His teammate Joe Ingles is another. The Mike Conley addition hasn't been great, but he has still played well enough alongside Donovan Mitchell. Overall this group can give any team a run for their money.

2021 Utah Jazz Roster Top Questions

How Will the Conley/Mitchell Tandem Work?

If everything plays out right, Mike Conley and Donovan Mitchell could prove to be perfect compliments for one another. Each have proven to be elite with the ball in their hands when it comes to both scoring and playmaking, but now they will both have the chance to play off the ball as well. They will also be lethal on the defensive end as well, as Conley is coming off of a year which he led the Grizzlies to be a top 10 defense and Mitchell played a key role in Utah’s 2nd place defense a year ago. That being said, this combination should put these two players in a position where they will be able to show off up each other’s overall game, making Utah very dangerous.

What Does the Bogdanovic Addition Mean?

By picking up Bojan Bogdanovic in free agency, the Jazz are adding a 42.5% 3-point shooter to an offense that has been just average in recent years. He will be a massive upgrade over former starting forward Jae Crowder, who only shot 33.1% last year. Additionally, Bogdanovic will have more room to operate than ever before with Conley, Mitchell, and lethal shooter Joe Ingles all sharing the floor in an offense that is poised to be the best Utah has had in a very long time. And by locking him up for the next four years, Bojan will surely be fixture in the Jazz lineup for the foreseeable future.

Will They Have Enough Depth?

While Utah certainly let go of key role players such as Crowder, Ricky Rubio, and Derrick Favors in order to make room for their summer acquisitions, they did well by finding some diamonds in the rough to give the roster some quality depth. Ed Davis had an elite rebounding season last year, gathering 25.2% of available rebounds when he was on the court, which was one of the top rates in the league. They also utilized some additional cap space to bring on Jeff Green and Emmanuel Mudiay, two players with size for their position that will provide length on the defensive end and additional veteran experience to the overall roster.
