Jazz Roller-Coaster Offseason: Biggest Winners & Losers

Who came out ahead in the Utah Jazz's blockbuster offseason?

The turbulent summer for the Utah Jazz is almost complete. Jazz fans were able to get closure on multiple fronts, and as usual, some parties won, while others will enter the 2022-23 season behind the eight-ball.

Let’s take a look at the biggest winners and losers of this crazy summer.

Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell (45) and center Rudy Gobert (27) react after a play during the third quarter against the Houston Rockets at Toyota Center.
New York Knicks guard Kemba Walker (8) and guard Evan Fournier (13) pose for a photo with team president Leon Rose (left) and head coach Tom Thibodeau (middle) and general manager Scott Perry (right) during their introductory press conference at Madison Square Garden.
Danny Ainge watches pregame activities after he was Appointed Alternate Governor and CEO of Utah Jazz Basketball prior to their game against the LA Clippers at Vivint Arena.
Los Angeles Lakers guard Russell Westbrook (0) battles for position against Utah Jazz forward Royce O'Neale (23) and forward Bojan Bogdanovic (44) in the second quarter at Vivint Arena.
Portland Trail Blazers guard CJ McCollum (3) defends Cleveland Cavaliers guard Collin Sexton (2) in the third quarter at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse.

Make no mistake about it, the 2022-23 Jazz season is going to be a tank job. It was the right move by Utah, but these rebuilds are never fun. Oddsmakers have Utah only winning 25 games this year, and if this holds true, this year won’t be one for the books.

Jazz fans will have fun getting to know the new roster during the honeymoon stage, but be prepared for the losses to start piling up.

There may never be an offseason like this one, and only time will tell how it all shakes out.

Stay tuned.
