Analysis: Here’s what the Utah Jazz lineup looks like now

Jeffrey D. Allred, Deseret News

Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert (27) blocks the shot by Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant (35) during the second round of the NBA playoffs and game 3 in Salt Lake City on Saturday, May 6, 2017.

It took the Utah Jazz five years to get back into the NBA playoffs this past season. The team’s focus on internal development resulted in the cultivation of homegrown stars with exponential upside.

But once the Jazz were eliminated in the second round by the eventual champions, the Golden State Warriors, the optimism became clouded by uncertainty.

Gordon Hayward, the team’s only All-Star, fled Salt Lake City to join the Boston Celtics, leaving the Jazz with a giant void and years of lost progress.

Having delayed his decision four days after the beginning of free...

For roughly a month and a half, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke has had 27 national monuments under his microscope, reviewing the protected status of these vast expanses of land (and, in some cases, water) at the prompting of an April executive order by President Trump.
