From a coffeehouse near his actual house in Finland, new Utah Jazz forward Lauri Markkanen and his wife discussed the shock of his latest trade, his recent standout performance at Eurobasket, and why they’re excited to come to Salt Lake City.
Really good article, but the standout part to me was the fact that Finnish men have to serve a 6 to 12 month stint of military service.
Kind of crazy. Would he just pause his contract? Will he wait until the end of his current contract? Can he do it next year when the Jazz try to tank again?
