Here's a fun fact: 58 official Jazz transactions have taken place since the draft of 2014.
The Jazz might've saved money on pizza and doughnuts. I packed low-fat cottage cheese, whole grain crackers, clementines, strawberries. Yum.

Trey Burke on the Jazz's 38-win season: "I think it was a success. We made some big strides. Everybody individually improved."
Alec Burks on what the Jazz need: "I hope I'm the missing piece."
Jeremy Evans has already planned ANOTHER Jr. Jazz tour. This guy is something else.
