If there’s a theme for Jazz forward Enes Kanter heading into the regular season, that’s it. This is shaping up as Kanter’s make-or-break year in Utah, and he knows it. It’s his chance to prove to coach Quin Snyder, general manager Dennis Lindsey and the rest of the Utah Jazz brass that he’s capable of being a key piece of the franchise and a part of the future. It won’t be easy. Kanter also knows this. He’s the one guy in the starting lineup who has to make a significant skill adjust...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Frankenstein entered the building, then. In their first preseason game, the Jazz looked like a body of parts that had been pieced together, bit by bit, and that had a new brain dropped into its cranial cavity. No, not AB Normal’s brain. Quin Snyder’s. That kind of incarnation/transformation is going to take time to complete, featuring both comely and ugly attributes.

On another play, Burke pushed the ball into the lane on a delayed fastbreak, found Dahntay Jones in the corner for a 3-point look, and watched as the veteran wing drained the jumper.

This year, Kanter says he’s finally been given the freedom —more accurately the command — to fire from deep. “I’m rehabbing in Chicago and Coach Quin [Snyder] came to visit me and he said, ‘You know you’re going to shoot some 3s this year,’” Kanter recalled Monday. “I was just shocked...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
