Pending free agent Foye sees long-term future with Jazz

The issue may be taken out of his hands, but Jazz shooting guard Randy Foye said Tuesday he hopes to have a future with the Jazz beyond this season. He has emerged as a viable option at shooting guard, although the Jazz seem to have plenty of long-term options at the position with Gordon Hayward and Alec Burks. However, it could be tough to turn away a player who will likely not only break the franchise's single season record for 3-pointers, but could do it before the All-Star break.

As I wrote for Wednesday's Tribune, Foye needs just 15 more 3s to tie Mehmet Okur's record 129 3-pointers. In a Tuesday morning one-on-one, Foye discussed his hot shooting, but also his adjustment to Utah, and said some revealing things about his future.

Here's his quote in full:

"To tell you the truth I do see myself long-term here. Because everything from an organization, to the values they have here is me. And in the beginning I probably never would have thought it was Utah, probably thought I was a big-city guy. But this is me. I got my family here, my family really likes it here, even when my friends come out they really like it. We're from the East Coast, and all you see is life moving so fast. Everything here is kind of slow and it's just laid back and I see myself here. I love the guys here. I know the guys, we get along really well. I just picture myself being here for a while. I don't really want to talk about contract things, but I just picture I would want to be here for a long time."

— Bill Oram
