the New Orleans Jazz as of next year are set to become the Utah Jazz!!!!
After talking to the league commish they have agreed on the Jazz move to Utah starting next season which is exciting news for the league and the fans .. the Jazz already have their new arena nearly completed and will launch a big party a few days before the season starts and have invited all gm's to come and help celebrate a new era in basketball .
Sure their is no Stockton or Malone but the Jazz have a bright future under the new GM Stockton who has a core team of Mourning, Hill, Fox, Houston and draftees in Mills , Harris and recently acquired Aussie Luc Longley ,but it will take a little time to get this team competitive but they are young and with longley aboard hopes he and Gm Stockton can bond and form a great relationship and he could plan to resign with the Jazz during free agency .
The only thing the Jazz need is a point guard and they have been searching high and low but so far no luck but it's the biggest need for the team to take the next big step. So far Magic, Webb and threat have Shared the duties thou it looks like free agency will be their best bet but the lack of cap space might hurt them unless magic's salary is traded or the cap level rises.
As of now it will have to be the Salt Lake City Jazz. To make a long story short ... in order to do an in-game relocation, the new city has to be on the game list. Utah is not, but Salt Lake City is. I have tried to make some edits in the DB but I wasn't successful. I have discussed this with Phil, and he wants them to become the Salt Lake City Jazz until we find a way to rename them as the Utah Jazz.
