The Utah Jazz are an interesting club this season. Long gone are the days of Deron Williams and Al Jefferson. It's now the...ahhh...Derrick Favors era? The Jazz made the call last season that the club they had wasn't competing for a Western Conference title any time soon, and pushed the reset button.

Some may call it tanking, some may call it rebuilding, but there's no question the Jazz are one of the frontrunners on paper to grab a shot at Andrew Wiggins.

The Toronto Raptors could have made a decision to head in this direction too this season but so far, have stood pat. That's not to say it continue though. With some of the league's supposed "tanking clubs" doing better than expected, could we see Masai Ujiri decide to switch gears?

Possibly. And if so, he has a club tonight to look to as an intriguing model.
