Utah Jazz Day 1 Training Camp Report

Day 1 for the Utah Jazz training camp is in the books.

  • The Jazz held a morning session and an evening session in the first of 2 a days.

 

  • The morning sessions had the 5 on 5 portions of the practice while the evening was without contact. The collective bargaining agreement only allows one of the two sessions to have 5 on 5 actions.

 

  • Quin Snyder’s big message was incremental differences. Quin’s point seems to be that no one needs to do anything dramatic.  He mentioned if Rudy Gobert grabs one more offensive rebound or if Donovan can go to the line one more time or Royce O’Neal turns a mid-range jumper into a 3 or Ricky Rubio makes one less turnover. These are the incremental differences that Quin is looking for this training camp.

 

  • The message that is not last year’s team was evident again. However, it was clear the Jazz were able to get a quick start with a huge amount of corporate knowledge in the group.

 

  • Quin Snyder said that players go from training to practicing to developing habits. That is the progression for a player and rookie Grayson Allen is in the training stage.  Everything is going very fast for the rookie and at some point it will slow down and he can take in the information and then be practicing.

 

  • Quin Snyder called Ricky Rubio an opportunistic scorer. I thought that was a good way to look at his role.

 

  • Former Jazzman Raul Lopez is back with the Jazz and part of the coaching staff. Lopez has a relationship with both Ricky Rubio as well as the new Jazz coach Fotis Katsikaris whom he played for in Greece.   Quin Snyder said he is planning on being with the team most of the season, but the specifics were not clearly defined.
