What can the Utah Jazz expect from Will Hardy?

The first piece of the Utah Jazz offseason has fallen under the hiring of Will Hardy as a new head coach of the team. An incorporation that supposes a twist more to the significant changes that have accumulated in the organization for the first time in four decades.

In just 18 months, Salt Lake City fans watched as Ryan Smith’s purchase of the franchise ended 35 years of Miller family ownership. An acquisition that brought with it Dwyane Wade as a minority owner and a clear nod to Donovan Mitchell, his young namesake and main star of the team.

This movement has resulted in others that have been gradually transforming the different levels that make up the organization: Danny Ainge landed as president of operations and Justin Zanik settled as general manager, leaving Dennis Lindsey displaced as advisor. Subsequently, the disappointments suffered by the Jazz in the last two years led to the goodbye of Quin Snyder, who decided to step aside to facilitate the arrival of new ideas. These will now arrive with the hiring of Hardy, but from the management they have applied theirs in parallel through an almost complete renovation of kits and design of the field for the next course.

Of course, the sporting course of the project and the execution of the game plan will fall into the hands of the new coach. However, there is still a lot of material to be cut, because of the decisions made from the front office In terms of hiring, renewals and transfers, it will depend on the pieces that Hardy has. Only then will he truly begin his work. With or without Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert.

While all these loose ends are being tied up, there are several details we do know about the manager and his deal with the Jazz. His name was chosen from an extensive list of more than fifteen candidates and the signed contract covers five seasons, which confirms the commitment and long-term expectations that Utah management has placed on him. But let’s dig a little deeper.
