Gordon Monson: From the beginning, Quin Snyder had happy basketball in mind. The Jazz are now playing it.

“The opportunity to join the Utah Jazz and to be part of such a highly respected franchise with an incredibly bright future is a great honor. I approach this opportunity with gratitude and humility and am committed to doing everything I can to help the Jazz become a championship-caliber team.”
