Weekly Run podcast: Mike Conley’s return, Royce O’Neale’s extension, trade deadline possibilities

(Francisco Kjolseth | The Salt Lake Tribune) Utah Jazz guard Mike Conley (10) focuses on his free throw as the Utah Jazz host the Orlando Magic in their NBA basketball game at Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City on Tuesday. Dec. 17, 2019.

The Jazz are still hot, but can they get even better?

On this week’s episode, hosts Andy Larsen and Eric Walden talk about the still-hot Jazz. Mike Conley has returned and looked good, what’s happening with the rotation? We talk about Royce O’Neale’s new deal. Finally, we minimize expectations for the trade deadline... a deal could be done, but it’s unlikely to be a big one.

Of course, we open by talking about Eric’s love for bad rock-and-roll jackets.

The breakdown:

0:00: Dennis Lindsey took some good-natured shots at Eric, which he richly deserved

5:20: Are the Jazz winning because they avoid the yellow jerseys?

9:40: Mike Conley’s contributions, the rotation changes, and what it means for the Jazz

18:40: Royce O’Neale’s new extension
