The Jazz now

Going into the offseason, the Jazz figured to have as many as 13 players under contract — one more than they plan to carry next season. With two players opting out of the final year of their deals, though, they're down to 11. If those two (Olden Polynice and Danny Manning) do not return, Utah, as it stands now, will have roster room for at least one free-agent addition.
