Fuzzy Future

The Deseret News is catching on to what TCG already knows... the Jazz will be facing a fuzzy future. The summer of 2009 will be a landmark time for the Utah Jazz.

The DNews gives some insight into the inevitable summer of decision-making in 2009. Here are some fast facts about the summer of 2009 as it relates to this article and the Utah Jazz:

The Utah Jazz will not pay beyond the luxury tax threshold, as quoted by Mr. Larry H. Miller.

      • The Jazz will have 3 players with either an early termination option or player option: Memo Okur, Kyle Korver and Carlos Boozer

      • The Jazz will have 3 players with a team option to keep: Ronnie Brewer, Morris Almond, and Kyrylo Fesenko.

      • The Jazz have 4 players on the roster who will be free agents next summer: Paul Millsap, Ronnie Price, Jarron Collins, and Brevin Knight.

      • The Jazz will be nugding-up against the luxury tax threshold in 2009-10 with the increased 'max-salary level' of Deron Williams, unless stated options are taken above.

      • The Jazz will face some serious changes in roster movement next summer.

      Chad Ford of ESPN.com outlines the free agent landscape of 2009, and labels Boozer as the most likely candidate from the Player Option contingent to leave his team. What do you think will happen?

      One addition:

      We also have to pay AK approximately $58 billion.

      This can't have effect in actual fact, that is exactly what I consider.
