The Utah Jazz look completely different than they did just a few months ago.
Now the team is really a shell of its former self with many new, young players and a boatload of future draft picks.
This Jazz lineup might not be one capable of immediate greatness but they are still going to put up a fight.
We have signed center @CodyZeller.

And the front office isn’t done filling out the roster.
The team just announced that it has signed center Cody Zeller.
Zeller has been in the NBA for years now and has quietly been building an impressive resume and stat sheet.
He is an obvious attempt by Utah to add depth to the team and give them more power and variety.
Cody Coming To Utah
Zeller is entering his 10th season in the league and has an average of 8.5 points, 6 rebounds, and 1.4 assists.
More impressively, he shoots 52% from the field, which is impressive for a 6-foot-11 big man.
Zeller was loyal to his Charlotte Hornets for most of his career.
He played there for 8 seasons before being traded to the Portland Trail Blazers in 2021-22.
He only played in Portland for 27 games and didn’t start in a single one, only spending 13 minutes on the floor.
Obviously, Portland didn’t really have a place for Zeller.
Therefore, his move to another team isn’t surprising.
It remains to be seen what sort of season Utah will have.
They have an influx of new members joining them and it will take some time for this unit to work well together.
Zeller will be just one of many athletes adjusting to a new life in Utah.
