‘How ‘Bout This Jazz’ podcast: Recapping a disappointing Utah Jazz 2021-22 NBA season

Plus: Which teams are likely interested in trading for Donovan Mitchell or Rudy Gobert, and what could the Jazz get for them, if the team decides to split up the two?

(Francisco Kjolseth | The Salt Lake Tribune) Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell (45) listens to Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert (27) during a time out during Game 3 of an NBA basketball first-round playoff series against the Dallas Mavericks, Thursday, April 21, 2022, in Salt Lake City.

It was a long and exhausting season for the Utah Jazz — and not just for the players and coaches.

Pretty sure it’s safe to say that fans were worn out after the buzzer sounded in Game 6 of the Jazz’s series against the Dallas Mavericks.

After enjoying the best record in the league the previous season, it was a season of high expectations – but it fell short, and questions remain for team owner Ryan Smith and CEO Danny Ainge. Changes are certainly coming, and it’s now a matter of who stays, who goes, and whether Quin Snyder will be leading this team next season or not.

But without a doubt, the biggest question is: Will Rudy Gobert or Donovan Mitchell be traded away in order to get assets to either reload or completely rebuild?

In the latest episode of The Tribune’s “How ‘Bout This Jazz” podcast, host/moderator Xoel Cardenas and Tribune Jazz beat reporters Andy Larsen and Eric Walden wrap up the 2021-22 Utah Jazz season, as it feels like this Jazz era is over.

The trio also discusses which teams are potentially interested in trading for Mitchell or Gobert, and what the Jazz could get for them, assuming the team decides to split up the duo.
