"Some areas will stay the same, and we’ll make improvements in others. I think we’ve come to understand each other."

Lindsey, meanwhile, has started putting his footprint on the Jazz. He has reviewed all aspects of the operation, though he doesn’t expect quick or drastic changes.

"Hopefully," he said, "I can show this group I’m coming at this job with a pure heart. ... I want to develop relationships, understand the Jazz way and not get in the way of that. I want to complement areas that need it and, strategically, cultivate some new areas."

In the next three weeks, Lindsey must finalize some pre-camp details.

Lindsey declined to discuss Bell’s situation, citing an agreement he reached with agent Herb Rudoy.

"Going forward, we’re keeping all conversations internal," he said. "... The goal is to keep quiet until the appropriate decisions are made."
