Salt Lake City, Utah (PRWEB) August 19, 2013
The 2013-2014 season marks a new era for the Utah Jazz, who are ushering in a wave of exciting, talented youngsters in hopes of hoisting a championship banner in Salt Lake City.
Led by the dynamic quintet of Derrick Favors, Gordon Hayward, Enes Kanter, Alec Burks and rookie Trey Burke, the Jazz enter a completely new phase of their history, one with a very bright future.
According to Amazon Tickets and Events marketing manager Brent Larsen, Utah’s youth should make them one of the most entertaining teams in the league.
“The Jazz front office is committed to playing their young guys big minutes,” Larsen said. “They might be prone to some mistakes here and there, but their energy should also make them a ton of fun to watch.”
The Jazz made some tough decisions this summer, letting veterans Al Jefferson, Paul Millsap, Mo Williams and Randy Foye leave as free agents. However, the moves were necessary, and opened the door for more playing time for their talented group of youngsters.
“This season is the perfect time to get to know all the young faces on the roster,” Larsen said. “Fans with Utah Jazz tickets are going to get the chance to see this core group of players grow up on the court together, and that can be a pretty special experience.”
Favors and Kanter figure to benefit the most from the decisions to let Jefferson and Millsap walk, as they will now be the starters at power forward and center. Both entered the league as No. 3 overall draft choices, and have the size, skill and athleticism to eventually form the best frontcourt tandem in basketball.
Despite coming off the bench for a majority of the season, Hayward made solid progress in his third season in the league, averaging a career-high 14.1 points per contest. Burks is clearly in need of more experience, but he should see a huge jump in his production and minutes with the starting shooting guard spot now his.
Burke rounds out the group as the point guard the franchise had been searching for since shipping Deron Williams off to the Nets in 2011. As the reigning Naismith Award winner as college basketball’s top player, Burke showed a ton of poise and leadership guiding Michigan to within one win of the national title.
Rounding out the bench are veterans Andris Biedrins, Brandon Rush, Richard Jefferson, Marvin Williams and Jeremy Evans. Biedrins, Rush and Jefferson came over in a trade with Golden State, netting the Jazz two more future first round picks that will help the franchise down the road.
No one knows exactly what to expect from the Jazz this season, as they are incredibly raw, but also undeniably talented. But no matter what the win-loss record says, fans with Utah Jazz tickets should be very excited as their new-look starting lineup finally gets its chance to truly showcase itself.
