Marc Stein: The Jazz announce they have hired an outside firm in conjunction with the NBA to “thoroughly investigate” a recent social media post from former Utah forward Elijah Millsap alleging a racially insensitive comment from the team’s top basketball executive, Dennis Lindsey, in 2015:

Sarah Todd: I spoke with Elijah Millsap this morning about the incident he referred to in his tweets last night. He said that his hope is that by shining a light on the use of bigoted language that there can be progress and change made. The purpose of his coming forward was not to paint Dennis Lindsey as a racist, “I don’t believe he’s a racist. I was highlighting the remarks.” Millsap’s hope is that by sharing his own experience it will benefit others, possibly start conversations even if they’re hard.
