KSLSports.com Utah Jazz Fantasy Playoff Starting Lineup

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Imagine having a Utah Jazz playoff team full of all-time greats like John Stockton, Karl Malone, Jeff Hornacek, or current stars like Donovan Mitchell, Rudy Gobert.

Here at KSLSports.com, we are giving you a chance to make create a lineup full of past and current Jazz playoff players. With the playoffs looming we are going to have some fun with the $15 roster challenge.

For those not familiar with this challenge, below is a group of Jazz players ranging from $1 to $5 and grouped by position and you can only have a roster of five players that equals $15, fairly straight forward.

That means decisions can get real tough quickly if you spend $10 on just Stockton and Malone which leaves you with just $5 left for three other positions, so sacrifices must be made.

To get involved we have a google document (below or click here) where you can make your own roster and later this week we will unveil the consensus starting five from the voting and also point out trends like what player and lineup was the most popular.

Also, later this week the KSL Sports staff will release their picks as well.
