Joe Johnson has been seeking a trade from the Utah Jazz to play for a playoff contender. Johnson signed a two-year, $22 million deal with the Jazz in 2016. Johnson missed a few games earlier in the season with a wrist injury. If the Jazz don't find a trade for Johnson, he could become a buyout ...

If Indianapolis can host an All-Star game, Salt Lake City can host one, too.

If you can’t get someone from your team voted to the All-Star game then you just bring the All-Star game to your state. That’s what Utah is doing. According to Eric Woodyard of the Deseret News, the Utah Jazz are looking to host the NBA All-Star game in 2022 or 2023—provided the world lasts that long.


The Jazz are preparing to formally submit a bid during the next two to three weeks to host the festivities in 2022 or 2023.

“We like 2023 because it’ll be 30 years since we hosted so we like the symmetry of that,” said Jazz president Steve Starks.

“We’ve been working with the league on that so it’s something we’re excited to do with the investments into the organization and into facilities,” he added.

Jazz executive Don Stirling, VP of community and special events Kari Holt Larson, and Clay Partain of Visit Salt Lake have been heavily involved in putting together a compelling bid. The goal is to tell the unique story of Salt Lake City while dispelling some misconceptions.

“Compared to 30 years ago, our infrastructure is completely different,” said Starks. “So, the number of hotel rooms, we can check that box. The airport will be completed by then so we’ll have a billion dollar-plus renovation to the airport, we’ll have TRAX even further mature than it is now.”

For those who don’t remember the last time the Jazz hosted the All-Star game (or weren’t alive then), the uniforms were amazing with Karl Malone and John Stockton both winning MVP honors. I...
The Utah Jazz regrouped as best they could in the wake of Gordon Hayward's departure last summer. At the very least, they entered the season as a fascinating test case: How would Utah's patented and usually effective two-big lineups featuring Rudy Gobert and Derrick Favors survive without Hayward ...

The Jazz’s Tuesday game against the Golden State Warriors featured new uniforms, new colors, new themes, new shirts, and a new court. Best of all, there was a new sense of urgency as Utah defeated the Warriors 129-99.

Against the best teams in the NBA, the Utah Jazz show up. Boston, 36-15 record: check. Toronto, 33-15: check. San Antonio, 33-19: check. We’re not sure what to make of the King’s Cavs, but check. How about the Warriors, winners of two of the last three Larry O’Brien trophies? Prior to the game, The Dubs sat at 40-10, with only four road losses all year. The Jazz made it five on the night they debuted their new “City” jersey and court ensemble paying homage to Utah’s unique landscapes and national parks. Here’s how it breaks down by quarter.

Q1, 35-30: Three’s the Name of the Game.

Just like the rest of the modern NBA, the Jazz are shooting from deep at a historic rate. To kick off the night in SLC, Joe Ingles kept the trend climbing up like Moab’s Arches. Ingles went 3-for-3 from three in the first six minutes and his teammates followed suit, collectively shooting 6-for-10 from long range. They obviously a lift from their friend Joe:
