Utah Jazz Open Up Training Camp

The 2016-2017 version of the Utah Jazz opened up training camp on Tuesday, September 27.  This will be a much different looking team this season as they have added many veterans during the offseason.  20 players are fighting for 15 spots.  The team is excited for the season to begin and are very optimistic about the season.  However, they know they can’t look too far ahead.  Games aren’t played on paper, they are played on the court.  Tuesday begins day one of the process towards the team goal of making the playoffs.

Here is Utah Jazz Head Coach Quin Snyder with the media following the first practice:
