As the NBA Draft has drawn to a close, all focus can now be placed firmly on free agency. Here are five power gorwards of interest for the Utah Jazz.
With the 2018 NBA Draft firmly in the rear view mirror, we can now shift our focus to free agency and contemplate which established players can best help this Utah Jazz team into contention. The Utah Jazz are on the cusp of breaking through as a true contender, and they are going to face many difficult decisions this off-season.
In preparation for free agency, we at The J-Notes have been doing special pieces focused on the top five free agents at every position. You can read the others via the links below:
Today, we will be focusing on potential power forwards for the Jazz to target in free agency. As far as positions of need go, this may be the most intriguing this off-season.

Let me just add, I am a huge fan of Aaron Gordon, and I think he would be terrific with the Jazz. That being said, I think it will take a max contract (that the Jazz won’t be willing to offer), and I expect the Magic would match it regardless. So I did not include him on this list.
