I'm Dennis Sacramento and Utah Jazz could be sleeper team in the tough Western Conference. For a preview and join my team beat writer Tim Burton of the standard examiner and Jim. Carlos Boozer made it pretty clear over the summer but he'd rather be playing anywhere else. But he -- you to not. Has alienated Jazz fans and even his teammates and if so. And those relationships be repaired. They're trying from from. What I've been -- gathers. Observer -- training camp went and to this point in the pre season. Parity saying the right things. You can tell Carlos is really trying hard but just behind him. It's electors maybe two sides of the story. Leader felt like cattle -- -- didn't. The -- won't matter who worked today. He didn't -- tiger had a contract extension. Debt that was sign that they didn't want him and again so was. And so it immediately went out and for lack a better trade if -- chuck and himself. And which has we're I think we're really to accommodate in the on Hillary get that I form. And I just don't think they got any offers that they really knocked the socks up and so consequently losers back -- in the right kings. Slowness target about Hamachi you know appreciates the news. Local scoring rebounding. And those are excited about how much he loved the economic team he's familiar with it and they've brought. Essentially everybody back from last year's team that was that was really burdened by a lot of injury and so that the aliens these guys can go pretty far they can stay healthy that's big question mark. The Jets matched Portland's big offered restricted free agent Paul Millsap now with Boozer back Utah has a log jam in the front court. How are they going to find ample playing time for both the power forwards. Perhaps -- a question I say what they've been trying to do in it through training camp and and it through pre season. It's actually trying to see if Islam Millsap. And maybe work in a little bit at three. And he's eat it a little bit of -- year -- chance. And then. You know they became -- -- -- seem pretty happy with that role. That it Jets matched up or sheet and I think they were probably taken that Carlos. Would not going to be around make that he would opt out of his final year and so now what they've got a situation where you know the -- You know a lot of debt. -- that seems pretty okay for the time being for for plane back up but I you'd take that you can see. Millsap played a little bit of three he'd try it -- it in the game against. It's Denver early on in the preceded. And Carmelo you know buckled and he's a couple times out there. -- and subtle little bit little trouble out on the I'm -- that as far as -- and inside and get rebounds when he needs to -- from the three. I think he should be -- line. And finally you talk -- the playoffs last season as an eighteen despite major injury issues. If they can't stay healthy how good in the -- being this season. They can be really get I think. They possibly. Can possibly beat a top three team in the last. Yes everybody -- help the I honestly don't expect to see Boozer. On the team pass to trade deadline only because. It yet haven't even -- that that extension -- -- -- color and part ways that concede -- But you know that -- standing -- I think everybody cities happy and healthy. And they buy into what. Jerry Sloan has been -- and about to -- and dispute physical play you know that's how they like and at. I think -- yes absolutely can be top three team in the last. All right Jim at stakes really insights for more basketball videos. Pictured keep a log on foxsports.com. I'm Dennis Ackerman.
