It’s all over. Donovan Mitchell’s special rookie season has come to a close. The Utah Jazz have cleaned out their lockers. Players have left for the summer.
But there are plenty of questions for the Jazz as the offseason begins.
And here we are, one day into the offseason, already mailing it in and asking Jazz fans on Twitter to provide us with podcast material.
On this episode of the Weekly Run podcast, we empty the Internet mailbag and answer fans’ questions about Derrick Favors’ free agency, Alec Burks’ playoff revival, possible coaching staff changes and the NBA draft.
Here’s a quick rundown of the episode:
