SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - The new-look Utah Jazz can only hope their transformation this year is as dramatic as that of once soft-spoken big man Enes Kanter, who wasn't afraid to show off his slimmed-down, muscled-up physique in a series of Twitter posts this offseason.
Granted the Jazz still don't have a superstar, and neither one of the Williams they added to the roster is named Deron.
They hope the addition of outside shooters and a point guard with swagger, coupled with key veterans in the final year of their contracts will help them achieve a new goal.
Rather than just making the playoffs as they did before being swept out last season, Utah wants a deep run.
No one expects it will be easy, not with the rest of the West getting stronger.
