UTAH JAZZ VIDEOS

A fifth year center, Favors scored a career-high 32 points and added nine rebounds and two blocked shots to that total. Small forward Gordon Hayward was almost equally as good, scoring 24 points, grabbing 10 rebounds and handing out three assists. They were without question the two best players on the floor. On a young team that still features a bunch of questions, Favors and Hayward looked like potential all-stars - if only for one night. "What Favors did tonight from a leadership perspective was outstanding," Jazz coach Quin Snyder said. "I thought Gordon was also terrific. Derrick’s line obviously stands out at you, but Gordon was almost as good. Those two guys - from a leadership standpoint - they just connected tonight." Salt Lake Tribune

The Utah Jazz announced today that the team has signed guard Alec Burks to a multi-year contract extension. Per team policy, terms of the agreement were not released. "We have great regard for Alec’s work ethic and dynamic athletic ability as well as his growth potential,” said Jazz General Manager Dennis Lindsey. “Alec is a young player with a unique skillset and true passion for basketball who consistently finds the gym and has displayed the characteristics and desire to continue to improve his game. He is a high-character individual who, throughout his time with the Jazz, has expressed his love for Salt Lake City and Jazz fans, so we are thrilled to know that he will be a core piece of our future as we continue to grow.

Alec Burks: Excited to be apart of the @Utah Jazz future. Thankful to the Miller family and the best fans in the NBA #jazznation http://t.co/l98WqqXGww Twitter @AlecBurks10

Reachable incentive clauses could push Burks’ deal to $45 million, sources said. Burks has developed into one of the NBA’s better young shooting guards and is a cornerstone of the franchise’s youthful core. Burks, a member of the 2011 NBA draft class, and his agent, Andy Miller, had until midnight EST on Friday to negotiate an extension with Utah – or Burks could’ve entered into restricted free agency in 2015.

After ending discussions on the possibility of a contract extension with the Utah Jazz, center Enes Kanter plans to enter restricted free agency next summer, his agent told Yahoo Sports on Wednesday. “We have mutually agreed with Utah to concentrate on the season and look at our options again in the summer,” agent Max Ergul said in a telephone interview. “Enes likes Utah and the organization very much, and now he can concentrate on continuing to grow as a player and helping them win.” Yahoo! Sports

Kanter, 22, the third overall pick in the 2011 NBA draft, will assuredly benefit from another full year of development, especially under new coach Quin Snyder. Kanter’s size and skill will make him an intriguing player on the summer market, and several teams told Yahoo Sports they’ll be scouting him closely to gauge his full market value and potential. The Jazz have gathered a fine collection of young frontcourt players, including Derrick Favors, Rudy Gobert and Kanter. Yahoo! Sports
