Do Utah Jazz rebuild after departure of Quin Snyder? What does it mean for Dallas Mavericks if they do?
The biggest question now becomes where do the Jazz go from here. Is Snyder just the first domino to fall or can Utah get back on track and build a title contender around Donovan Mitchell? The 25-year-old guard wants to win, and many experts believe it is a question of when, not if, he will ask out of Utah. If the Jazz trade Mitchell and Gobert, they are looking at a rebuild.
Utah is committed to winning right now. They have the western conference’s longest active playoff streak and are just one year removed from having the best record in the regular season. Their fate could change quickly, though.
For now, the Jazz are expected to be competing with the Dallas Mavericks for playoff positioning next season in the loaded Western Conference. With the Clippers and Nuggets getting healthy and the Grizzlies, Timberwolves, and Pelicans charging up the standings, the race to avoid the play-in tournament will be real next season. A slow start under a new head coach could push the Jazz into that mix and further unsettle their roster.
The Utah Jazz remain a team to watch. Who do they hire as their new head coach? What moves do they make this offseason? Can they take a step forward or do they move into a rebuild? Stay tuned for a massive offseason in both Utah and Dallas.
