Utah Jazz 2019 Offseason and Team Outlook

2018-19 Record 50-32
2019-20 Record 55-27 Prediction

I tend to think that Mike Conley is going to be a huge upgrade over Ricky Rubio. Rubio was never that great of a shooter, and Conley was the number one option on the Grizzlies. I think he’ll be a wonderful addition on the Jazz, which I think will stack up to at least a few more wins.

This team is also likely to benefit from the addition of Bojan Bogdanovic, who is an excellent shooter I might add, to their core. Anytime you take a starter such as Joe Ingles and make him into a bench player by adding someone like Bogdanovic, you are increasing your depth and increasing the outlook of this team. Ed Davis will be getting an increased role after being signed to replace Derrick Favors.

Overall, I like the direction of this team, and since they have the ability to sign back key core players, such as Donovan Mitchell, and with three important key additions, they should be in the title hunt in next few years right behind teams in the West like the Rockets, Clippers, and Blazers.
