The Utah Jazz have some big decisions forthcoming that they're going to need to get right. A lot tot of key guys are going to be free agents soon, some up this very summer, and others who are going be done with their contracts next summer.

The Utah Jazz have to make decisions on who to re-sign and who to let walk, as not everyone can or should come back. Below is a a complete rundown of the free agents of 2024, aka this summer.


  • Kris Dunn
  • Johnny Juzang (restricted)
  • Kira Lewis Jr
  • Micah Potter (restricted)
  • Luka Samanic
  • Talen Horton-Tucker

As you can see, Kris Dunn and Talen Horton-Tucker are your two biggest names, with Johnny Juzang being your most productive scorer of this group. While everyone contributed to some degree, if the idea is to overhaul this roster to make it a competitor, then the only two names who would be back are Dunn and Juzang. Micah Potter and Luka Samanic showed glimpses but neither did enough to warrant a spot over a potential rookie or free-agent signing

Below, things get much more daunting as two of the better players from the 2023-2024 Utah Jazz squad are up.


  • John Collins (player)
  • Lauri Markkanen
  • Jason Preston (restricted)
  • Omer Yurtseven

While Omer Yurtseven and Jason Preston are on the list, the two big names are John Collins and Lauri Markkanen. Both men are forwards on the current team and are good to great offensive players. Markkanen is a Top 25 guy in my opinion while Collins really did have a good offensive season for the Jazz.

Markkanen needs a new contract, and the Jazz shouldn't even let him leave the 2024 offseason without a contract, let alone move into 2025 looking to get him locked up. Most importantly beyond retaining Markkanen is Collins. He can play offense, it's his defense that is lacking. If he were to take a demotion to the bench and play as the team's sixth man, then maybe he's worth keeping around, but as the Jazz want to chase some big names this offseason, trading Collins will likely have to happen.
