SLAM: Being in Utah, it’s almost like you guys are outta sight at times. There’s not that many Jazz games on national TV, so how does it feel to be receiving the recognition that you are this season after slipping down to 23rd in the Draft and dealing with injuries last season? RH: It feels great. To be honest, I feel like in Utah, we do have to do more, win more, and do more individually to be recognized in this League. It’s been fun, though. A lot of hard work for me has paid off. My thing is just do your work and everything will come to light. Whatever you do during the summer, in the early mornings, everything will come to light. We’re in the mix now, trying to make the Playoffs. Hopefully we can do that and shine even more light on Utah.

SLAM: Just talking to people around the League, everyone has nothing but positive things to say about Coach Quinn Snyder. Just how much has he helped your development? RH: He’s been amazing! He’s rare, as far as head coaching goes, as he still works with us as if he’s an assistant coach. Meaning he’s very hands-on. He comes on the court with you, works with you on different things to help your game. Even during the game, you may be in a little funk and he’ll see something there and he’ll talk to you in a way to get you going. He’s a great friend to all of us as well. Even though he’s tough on us at times, he makes sure all of us are good off the court as well, and that’s rare on the NBA level.
