Agents will push teams to price that second cap jump — from about $90 million to $110 million — into any four-year extension struck over the next two months. Both sides knew that Alec Burks wasn’t “worth” $10.3 million per season in 2015 terms when Utah inked him to a four-year extension almost a year ago, but the Jazz understood that if Burks made a leap he could outproduce his salary on the back end. Per several league sources, agents are striking a tough posture in preliminary talks. That doesn’t mean the next two months will produce stalemates, short-term deals, or near-max contracts for anyone who demands one. These same dynamics hovered over contract talks during the past year, and players, with more choices than ever, still opted mostly for long-term security; the risk of injury always looms, and the threat of another work stoppage in 2017 clouds everything.
On account of the Jazz’s youth, Snyder says they remain a moving target as it pertains to what must be added. They need more perimeter shooting, but then, nobody’s ready to shut an eye to what Hood and Exum might become, or what a healthy Alec Burks might add to the mix. “We’re capable of shooting the ball better with the guys we’ve got,” Snyder says. “We’ll get better offensively as guys get more comfortable with each other. … We have so many young variables. I think there’s really a sense that we don’t need to jump the gun and say, ‘we need this, we need this,’ we’re just going to try to be patient, and that’s really how we went about last year. We’re in this thing for sustainability. Sometimes, that requires more patience. We’ve got committed guys.”
