It was obvious on Thursday, though, that the 27-year-old Booker would like to stay in Utah next season. "Of course I want to be back. I got the sense that they want me back, so I feel it's mutual," he said. "But, you know, at the end of the day, it's still always a business, so we'll see. "… We had great (team) chemistry. Definitely, the chemistry was great, just to play with the guys, the way we competed. You know, I'm a big competitor, so I want to be out there with guys who compete. And those guys definitely competed and gave it their all every game, and I would love to play with them again. Deseret News

"The Jazz organization, they do a good job. It's very family oriented, they do a lot of stuff for the fans. I mean, it's just great," Booker said. "Washington was a great experience, but I definitely enjoyed my time here in Utah a little more (than his previous four years in Washington with the Wizards)." Deseret News

Ingles is eligible to sign a $1.5 million qualifying offer for next season. "Obviously both sides are pretty mutually interested in coming back," he said Thursday in his adorable Aussie accent. "I had a great conversation with (head coach) Quin (Snyder) and the staff, so we'll obviously see what happens. I think everyone knows I'm free, so we'll see what happens. But there's definitely mutual interest." Deseret News

“I just think he’s in the right situation (in Atlanta),” said Williams, who played with Korver for three seasons in Utah. “He just has freedom here, complete freedom. A lot of coaches don’t like shots early in the shot clock. But for him to get open, that’s what he has to take because guys are sitting on him in the halfcourt. And so when he comes down in transition, he’s firing. When you’re shooting 60% from 3, that’s a pretty good shot.” New York Daily News

Trevor Booker who took issue with Kanter’s comments on the organization’s lack of professionalism and made a sarcastic tweet concerning him the night before, didn’t pile on when asked about the change after he left. “The locker room was fine when he was here and it was great after he left,’’ he said.

When asked if the chemistry improved after the All-Star break, Derrick Favors said, “I think it was bound to happen either way. We practiced and got better on the defensive end.’’ Then there was Joe Ingles, whose locker was next to Kanter’s. “Enes was a good guy,’’ he said. “We had no issue with him in the locker room or on the court.’’ Deseret News

It's as though the Jazz brought Ingles in to help Exum, and then they discovered he could help them in other ways. He's finishing a one-year deal and will be a free agent this offseason. Dennis Lindsey recently was complimentary of Ingles, saying: "He's exceeded our expectations as a teammate and a competitor. He's an NBA player. He's proved that this year. Hopefully, his experience has been good enough that he'll consider us when the time comes." Salt Lake Tribune
