Utah Jazz Rumors
But even in an era in which quarter-century old arenas are routinely shuttered and demolished in favor of newer, fancier digs, Jazz officials say their preference as they weigh their options is to stay put at EnergySolutions Arena. “The bones of this building are really strong,” new Miller Sports and Entertainment president Steve Starks says. “We’ve had others come look at it and say it’s in great shape. It’s timeless in a lot of ways. … Hopefully this is an arena that’s world-class for the next 20-30 years.”
The Portland Trail Blazers and Philadelphia 76ers are the only teams with enough cap space to absorb Haywood and create a trade exception for Cleveland. The Utah Jazz are also close but would have to trade or cut several players with non-guaranteed contracts to do so.
Spurs reserve Kyle Anderson has been named MVP of the 2015 NBA Summer League after averaging 22 points over six games in Las Vegas, and 19.3 in nine games overall. Following his lead, the Spurs are 5-1 in Las Vegas and will play Phoenix on Monday for the championship. The Spurs previously went 1-2 in the Utah Summer League. Anderson, who is also averaging 5.8 rebounds and 1.3 steals in Las Vegas, was also named first-team All Summer League, joining Seth Curry of New Orleans, Chicago’s Doug McDermott, Norman Powell of Toronto and Phoenix’s T.J. Warren.
