Postseason or Top Pick?
The Jazz finished last season as the 12th seed in the West with a record of 37-45.
The addition of Atlanta’s John Collins and a promising class of rookies has created expectations for a postseason appearance.
If talking about a best-case scenario, the Jazz could definitely be in the running for a play-in spot. It’s very realistic for players like Lauri Markkanen, Collin Sexton, Walker Kessler, and John Collins to improve upon their 2022-23 campaign.
“I think you either want to make the playoffs or you want to really badly miss the playoffs,” Anderson said.

Looking at the Jazz roster, it appears that a finish in the 8 to 12-seed range is the most likely scenario.
For most teams, this would be very unfortunate. But, the Jazz have such a large collection of draft assets that they will probably be set in the upcoming drafts regardless.
What are your expectations for the Jazz in the upcoming season? Is a postseason appearance or a top-5 pick more likely?
