Even now, Ingles struggles to comprehend the fact the Jazz were willing to fork out such significant money. “It still hasn’t sunk in,” Ingles told The Saturday Telegraph. “I remember reading it (the contract) somewhere and I never thought I would be in a situation like this. “I mean, I’m not going to change. I am who I am. I’m about to turn 30 now and I’ve been like that my whole life. “People looking from the outside might think that things will change because I’ll have access to a lot more money, but it won’t happen.”

The Utah Jazz are slated to wear a color of jersey they’ve never worn as a primary color before in 2017-18: gold. League sources tell KSL.com that Nike, the NBA’s new jersey provider in the 2017-18 season, will provide a primarily gold-colored uniform for the Jazz. The jersey will be an alternate, not one of the Jazz’s primary jerseys, and may not debut until December. No mockup of the jersey is currently available.
