We don't know what the Utah Jazz's direction is come the Trade Deadline and that annoys us

We still don't know if the Utah Jazz are buyers or sellers at the trade deadline.

The Utah Jazz are climbing the ranks of the NBA, having gone 17-7 over their last 24 games. They beat some of the NBA's best teams in the league and are on the rise. Just a few games out of the sixth seed, a guaranteed playoff spot, the Jazz are not to be trifled with. Yet, despite the fact that they're in the hunt this year, the front office may opt to blow this thing up again. Just as they did last year.

They traded away several of their best players, including Mike Conley and the Jazz went from playoff contenders to the 8th pick in the NBA Lottery. Fans are worried, and rightfully so, that the Jazz's front office will do that to them again this year, especially with a younger squad being utilized.

If that happens unexpectedly the fandom may melt down in frustration and they'd have every right to. It's not the decisions that we're mad about but the fact that it's going to come out of nowhere regardless of the decision. And no one, not even those within the "know" have a clue.

Two men who cover the team, the Jazz Podcast host JP Chunga (Jazz Podcast Host) and the Jazz's Digital Content Writer Ryan Kostecka sat down and answered a bunch of questions, but every answer basically came down to "we don't know, it could go any direction" and if two guys with decent access to those with the answer have no clue, how could any of us?

The Jazz could and probably should take aim at some available talent who upgrade the team significantly and go after them, but they may just cash in on some contracts for draft picks, picks that likely won't help the team. If that's the case, then who knows what the rest of this season will look like.
