In: Bojan Bogdanovic, Mike Conley, and Ed Davis. Out: Ricky Rubio and Derrick Favors.

Did the Utah Jazz win the offseason? *Grabs ear* I’m getting word, the Brooklyn Nets signed Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. Okay, so did they win the offseason non Nets division? Commentators tab the club as a Western Conference contenders.

The Conley trade materialized once the Memphis Grizzlies won the third pick in the draft. Ja Morant and a new front office made the veteran point guard expendable.

Bogdonovic’s pursuit turned hot once Nikola Mirotic decided to jet to Europe. The Jazz were preparing an aggressive offer to the former Milwaukee Buck.

Bogdonovic’s signing and Conley’s trade leaves Derrick Favors and Ricky Rubio on the way out. Favors’s team option for nearly $17 million will not be picked up. Rubio inked a deal with the Phoenix Suns.

With a hole at backup center, Justin Zanik and Dennis Lindsey opted for Ed Davis.

With moves left to fill out the roster, Utah owns a lineup to be feared in the Western Conference. Here come the expectations! The Jazz opened at +2500 in the Westgate at noon eastern and jumped to +1800 at 7 eastern, according to the Action Network.

So, did Utah win the offseason? Vote below.
