The Utah Jazz are the best team no one is talking about right now, they've had an incredible offseason, making moves to build a legitimate NBA Championship contender.

<div><p>The Jazz stacked their roster, they got extremely better and they will be a serious problem.</p><p>In addition to trading Grayson Allen, Kyle Korver, Jae Crowder, the No. 23 pick in the NBA Draft and a future first round pick to the Grizzlies for <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/nba/utah-jazz-roster-starting-lineup-with-mike-conley/90729/" target="_blank">Mike Conley</a>, they signed Bojan Bogdanovic (four-years, $73 million), Ed Davis (two-years, $10 million), Jeff Green (one-year, $2.5 million) and Emmanuel Mudiay (one-year). Here's their updated depth chart:</p><p><strong>Utah Jazz Roster &amp; Starting Lineup</strong></p><p>*Notates expected starter</p><p>C: Rudy Gobert*, Ed Davis, Tony Bradley<br />PF: Bojan Bogdanovic*, Georges Niang, Jarrell Brantley (rookie)<br />SF: Joe Ingles*, Jeff Green, Royce O'Neale<br />SG: Donovan Mitchell*, Miye Oni (rookie)<br />PG: Mike Conley*, Dante Exum, Emmanuel Mudiay, Justin Wright-Foreman (rookie)</p><p>With Conley, the Jazz have a top-tier point guard they have pursued for a year to pair with their rising star Donovan Mitchell.</p><p>Conley is a significant upgrade at point guard for the Jazz, he will complement Mitchell and take the team to another level, filling a huge need on offense. He's also a perfect fit on defense, making the Jazz a dominant team at both ends of the court.</p><p>A defense led by Rudy Gobert (plus-5.1 Defensive Box Plus/Minus last season) with Mike Conley (plus-4.8 Offensive Box Plus/Minus last season) and Donovan Mitchell (plus-0.8 Offensive Box Plus/Minus last season) carrying the offense makes them a team to watch in the Western Conference.</p><p>Bojan Bogdanovic is a great offensive player, he can do more than just shoot. With Conley, Mitchell, Bogdanovic and Ingles the Jazz now have four players that can create their own shot and also drive the ball and they have a dominant center.</p><div>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;For Jazz fans unfamiliar with Bojan Bogdanovic here is a thread showing why his signing is such a big deal for the Utah Jazz. First, they've added one of the best 3-point shooters in the NBA. &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/TakeNote?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#TakeNote&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/9ZT5qxPNQS\"&gt;pic.twitter.com/9ZT5qxPNQS&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— Jeremiah Jensen (@JJSportsBeat) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/JJSportsBeat/status/1146118372783865856?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;July 2, 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt; &lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;"}[/]</div><div> </div><p>The Jazz took the most catch and shoot 3-pointers in the NBA last season. Here's how their current roster did on catch and shoot 3-pointers:</p><p>Conley 39.8<br />Mitchell 40.1<br />Ingles 40.1<br />Bogdanovic 44.9<br />O'Neale 40.1<br />Niang 40.8</p><p>replacing:</p><p>Rubio 33.7<br />Crowder 33.6<br />Favors 21.8</p><p>Ed Davis is a quality big off the bench that will bring much needed depth to their frontcourt and this is what Dwyane Wade had to say about Jeff Green:</p><p><em>"I do NOT understand how and why Jeff Green keep signing these 1 year deals for the minimum. This is now 3 years in a row. He's never injured, He's never been a problem in the locker room, He's athletic, he can shoot the 3, he can guard multiple positions and he's not old."</em></p><p>Emmanuel Mudiay is a solid signing as well, if he works hard and plays with a chip on his shoulder, his development can continue an upward trajectory with head coach Quin Snyder and Mike Conley helping him. The Jazz are a great fit for him.</p><p><strong><u>Odds to Win the 2019-20 NBA Championship<br />(Courtesy of <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=4432&amp;book=JAZZ" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Jazz Sports</a>)</u></strong></p><p>Los Angeles Lakers +175</p><p>Milwaukee Bucks +650</p><p>Toronto Raptors +850</p><p>Philadelphia 76ers +900</p><p>Golden State Warriors +1250</p><p>Houston Rockets +1250</p><p>Utah Jazz +1350</p><p>Denver Nuggets +1750</p><p>Los Angeles Clippers +1750</p><p>Brooklyn Nets +2500</p><p>Portland Trail Blazers +2750</p><p>New Orleans Pelicans +3300</p><p>Oklahoma City Thunder +3500</p><p>Boston Celtics +3750</p><p>Dallas Mavericks +5250</p><p>Indiana Pacers +6000</p><p>San Antonio Spurs +6000</p><p>Orlando Magic +10000</p><p>Sacramento Kings +10000</p><p>New York Knicks +15000</p><p>Atlanta Hawks +15000</p><p>Chicago Bulls +15000</p><p>Miami Heat +15000</p><p>Minnesota Timberwolves +20000</p><p>Phoenix Suns +20000</p><p>Washington Wizards +20000</p><p>Memphis Grizzlies +25000</p><p>Detroit Pistons +30000</p><p>Cleveland Cavaliers +50000</p><p>Charlotte Hornets +50000</p></div>
