Hall of Famer Jerry Sloan was introduced Thursday as a senior basketball adviser, an undefined role that allowed him to rejoin the Jazz after abruptly resigning as head coach in 2011 and paving the way for Corbin. "I wished I could have called him down to sit beside me at times," Corbin said, sitting beside his longtime mentor at the Jazz’s practice facility Thursday morning. The last time they shared the dais, Sloan’s eyes were red and he fought back tears. It was February 2011 and he announced his sudden departure from the team. Since then, he has been courted by nearly every team with a coaching vacancy. He said Thursday he always hoped that a new role with the Jazz would materialize." Salt Lake Tribune

Utah's hopes of sneaking past the Lakers into the West's final playoff berth have dwindled since a hope-generating win at Golden State as recently as Sunday night. After finally finding a way to win one in Portland, L.A entered the weekend as a 73.5 percent favorite, according to ESPN.com's Hollinger Playoff Odds, to snag the No. 8 spot. But one source close to the situation, echoing the sentiments in last weekend's Weekend Dime, insisted to ESPN.com this week that Tyrone Corbin will be back next season for the final year of his contract even if the Jazz -- filled with free agents and youngsters -- fail to reach the postseason.

The quickie summation for this format, from those plugged into the coaching grapevine, is that Corbin's position is likely endangered only if the Jazz miss out on the playoffs. And even then -- even amid ongoing doubts about his ability to make on-the-fly game adjustments and what has been described as an unremarkable sideline presence -- Corbin could hang on. ESPN.com

Having eight players bound for free agency may be taking a toll on the Jazz, coach Tyrone Corbin said Friday, and could be partly to blame for the team’s late-season struggles. "It may have a little something to do with where we are," Corbin said. "We can’t do anything about it. We’ve got to play our way through it, that stuff we can’t do anything about until it’s time to do something about it." Salt Lake Tribune
