The Utah Jazz have plenty of decisions to make this offseason. Whether it’s in free agency, the draft, or through trades, new faces are being added to the roster, and it’s likely some old faces will be saying goodbye.
With that being said, these three Jazz players may have played their last game in Utah.
3 Jazz players who may have played their last game in Utah
Juan Toscano-Anderson found himself in Utah following the Jazz’s three-team trade deadline deal with the Lakers and Timberwolves. In his tenure with the Jazz, the Marquette product didn’t see the most action but still found his way to the floor in 22 games with the team. In that time, Toscano-Anderson averaged 3.4 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 1.8 assists while shooting 40.3% from the floor and a dismal 17.4% from three-point range.
In addition to his subpar play, at 30 years old, Toscano-Anderson doesn’t exactly fit the time frame of the future plans in Utah. With the team in more of a rebuilding phase, it doesn’t make sense for the Jazz to hold onto a veteran who doesn’t offer them much in the long run. With a new star in Lauri Markkanen in town, it’s best for the organization to look to build around the former lottery pick and allow the young players on the roster to develop on the court.
With the forward entering the offseason as a free agent, it seems unlikely that the two sides would have any interest in getting a deal done. It seems safe to say Toscano-Anderson has played his last game as a member of the Jazz.
