That’s a wrap on the 2021-22 NBA season for the Utah Jazz.
The team was taken down in a great back-and-forth Game 6 against the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday night.
It was a sad end to an up-and-down season.
But what does it mean for next season?
Rudy Gobert says his goal has always been to win a title in Utah and that remains true. But he recognizes that he could be part of a potential roster shakeup. “The rest is out of my control,” Gobert said.

Star center Rudy Gobert had a few words about the future of his team on Thursday night following the defeat.
He reiterated that his goal has always been to win a title with the Jazz and it still is.
However, the big man admits that there could be a lineup change in the future.
“The rest is out of my control,” Gobert said.
Change Of Tune
The Jazz still have a lot of promise, there is no doubt about that.
Their two lead players, Gobert and Donovan Mitchell, are the core of the team and are signed with them for a few more seasons.
But there is still the possibility of some big changes coming to the team.
Danny Ainge is now the CEO of the Jazz and was hired to help improve the team and make them championship-caliber.
Now that the team has gotten pushed out in the first round, expect Ainge to formulate ways to tweak the lineup or create trade packages that improve their chances.
You should also not be surprised if we just saw the last game with Quin Snyder coaching the Jazz.
Rumors have been swirling around Snyder for months now as the Jazz have suffered and there is a strong possibility that he exits stage left after this disappointing postseason run.
The Jazz will likely look pretty similar next season but changes of some sort are certainly in the works.
