Remember the Utah Jazz team that we all watched last season?
Well, it’ll only live on in your memory now because the team has changed so much in just a few months.
When the new season kicks off next season, the Jazz will look like a brand new team.
It might not be a team that will win a lot of games, but it could be one that is a playoff contender in a few years.
After multiple offseason deals, including this morning's reported trade of Bojan Bogdanovic, the Jazz roster has seen quite the overhaul. 🎺 pic.twitter.com/9UZ5Y98IXM

Of the five players who played the most minutes for the Jazz last season, only one remains on the roster: Jordan Clarkson.
Clarkson is a terrific player and former Sixth Man of the Year so the Jazz are glad to still have him.
However, even he might not be around for much longer, meaning the Jazz could be completely transformed when 2022-23 starts.
The Jazz’s New Tune
It quickly became obvious that the Jazz were looking to really shake things up.
They weren’t looking to change just a few things – they were looking to change everything.
It all started when the front office agreed to a deal that sent Rudy Gobert to the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Shortly thereafter, Royce O’Neal was also sent away.
After that, speculation ran rampant for weeks before the team also traded Donovan Mitchell too.
On Thursday, the team announced that Bojan Bogdanovic was also leaving the team.
All of this came on top of head coach Quin Snyder leaving at the end of last season.
As you can see, the Jazz have changed but they have received a lot of younger, promising players and a slew of draft picks too.
That means that they will be good again – it just won’t be soon.
