ESPN’s Kevin Pelton joined David Locke for LOCKED ON NBA and in their conversation they talked about the Jazz and the value and depth and defense for a team. Is defense really less valuable than offense and is the Jazz depth as good as people have said?

Reports over the weekend talked about how the Jazz are unlikely to get an extension done with Rodney Hood. Locke explains that it has nothing to do with how the Jazz and Hood feel about each other, but much more about the cap implications and the rules of the CBA.

Locke did his season prep this weekend and shares notes on all the Jazz players. Let’s be honest these are in-depth and you aren’t getting them anywhere else.

Finally, Locke tells a feel-good story about a former Jazzman, Carrick Felix.
