After a summer in which the Jazz did most of their addition by subtraction — plus one bold draft-day move — the team lost its leading scorer, rebounder and assists man. The Jazz have seven new players on the roster, including Trey Burke, the No. 9 pick in the draft and presumptive starting point guard. Corbin has spent much of the summer getting to know them, scheming for ways to develop his key players while also managing some wins in the beefed-up Western Conference.
As one of the few teams in the West to have not significantly improved this offseason, the challenges for the Jazz and their coach will be plentiful.

Just like his bosses, Corbin is taking a patient approach.
"I look at it from the standpoint I’m going into my 10th year with this organization I know and respect a lot," he said. "Unfortunately, I’m in the last year of my deal, but I have a job to do."
