Whether it’s a point guard, center, or anything in between, the Utah Jazz have plenty of promising options to pursue during this summer’s free agency period.
If you asked most Utah Jazz fans what position the team most needs to look to shore up for next season, they’d probably suggest adding a wing player or potentially a stretch-four. While either of those options would be solid, the Jazz will more than likely be looking for multiple ways to improve across the board by scanning available players at all positions.
Especially since the Jazz may lose out on some players currently on their roster in free agency, there’s a chance they’ll need to patch up some holes. That’s particularly true regarding unrestricted free agent Raul Neto who has served as a nice stopgap as a backup point guard and Derrick Favors who may pursue a bigger role or more money elsewhere.

They’re not necessarily the sexiest of names or the biggest of targets, but they’re ones that could absolutely make sense for the Jazz be it due to current need or the potential loss of impending free agents.
