The Utah Jazz, since moving to Salt Lake City after a failed stint in New Orleans have been one of the NBA’s best and most consistent franchises for years, hosting legendary players and coaches, and nowhere is that more evident then when you look at the name of forwards that have called Salt Lake City home. Sure, not many of these names stayed in Utah for long (beyond the obvious No. 1), but during their short time here, all ten of these names made a mark on the Jazz as a team, and throughout the basketball loving community in Utah.
Whatever the case may be, the following 10 players have been exemplary throughout their career, and Utah were lucky enough to help them showcase their skills on the NBA level, and even without Championship glory, the following 10 players represent the best of the best throughout the NBA, and are considered the 10 best forwards to ever don the Jazz Note.
10. Joe Ingles
Career numbers: 8.6 PPG, 3.2 RPG, 3.8 APG, 590 GP.
Joe Ingles first made it to the NBA at the age of 27, and since that point, he’s spent eight seasons representing the Utah Jazz, and while he’s never been a star, he plays his role perfectly, and has become a huge fan favourite in Salt Lake City. Slo Mo Joe played his role perfectly, and at times, was an absolute sniper beyond the arc, and while he never saw an All-Star game or any accolades beyond that, he was someone that Utah desperately needed around the star duo of Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert.
Joe Ingles is a player that always played hard for the Jazz while shooting the three at a great clip and always defending his position, and while he’ll no doubt be overtaken for this spot on the list one day, he deserves plenty of recognition for what he meant to this team for eight years.
