Quin Snyder is moving on from the Utah Jazz. So what’s next for a franchise that has had to make few head coaching hires in its existence. The answer could very well shape the future for the Jazz. And the story, is here – theathletic.com/3350824/2022/0…1:40 AM

Ben Anderson @BensHoops
I’m grateful for the opportunity I’ve had to cover and talk to Quin Snyder over the last 8 years.
I suspect there’s an alternate universe where he’s a Supreme Court justice or a world leader, but he ended up in this weird corner of the universe.
He was always very kind to me. – 12:57 AM

Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Just thinking about some big Quin Snyder decisions/moments, feel free to add your own:
– Essentially believing in Rudy Gobert, who seemed so raw under Corbin, to be a transformational starting center in year 2
– Finding 1,000 ways to attack Carmelo’s defense in the OKC series – 12:47 AM

Marc Berman @NYPost_Berman
Quin Snyder’s Jazz exit leaves Donovan Mitchell “disappointed” but may not help #Knicks pursuit #NBA nypost.com/2022/06/05/qui…12:24 AM

Ryan Smith, Danny Ainge and Quin Snyder will address the media tomorrow morning – 9:54 PM

Quin Snyder, Jazz CEO Danny Ainge, and owner Ryan Smith will address the media tomorrow at 11 am MT. – 9:53 PM

Marc Stein @TheSteinLine
Press Conference Monday in the NBA just got even newsier: Utah will hold a session tomorrow with new owner Ryan Smith, new CEO Danny Ainge and outgoing coach Quin Snyder … adding to previously scheduled press conferences for Miami’s Pat Riley and new Lakers coach Darvin Ham. – 9:52 PM

Jazz are hosting a press conference tomorrow at 11 AM. Ryan Smith, Danny Ainge, and Quin Snyder will speak. – 9:52 PM

I mean if the Jazz are going to try and steal Kevin Young away, they have to give the Suns Quin Snyder in return, it’s only fair – 8:14 PM

Marc Berman @NYPost_Berman
With Quin Snyder resigning, imagine Knicks assistant Johnnie Bryant gets courtesy interview but Danny Ainge doesn’t really know him. If he’s seriously considered, Donovan Mitchell is influencing the hire. – 7:30 PM

Tomorrow is the eight-year anniversary of news breaking that the Jazz had hired Quin Snyder – 6:22 PM

Quin Snyder stepping down as Utah Jazz head coach nba.nbcsports.com/2022/06/05/qui…6:19 PM

Ben Anderson @BensHoops
I think this move makes a ton of sense for the @Utah Jazz and Quin Snyder.
Jazz have a pathway to try something new without starting a full rebuild.
For Snyder, there’s a real chance Philly, Atlanta, San Antonio, and potentially even Vegas and Seattle have open jobs next year. – 6:14 PM

Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
With Quin Snyder stepping down, Terry Stotts would be an obvious name to look at. But I think the Jazz take their time and conduct a thorough search. I also think they will be open to considering assistants – 6:09 PM

Ryan Miller @millerjryan
Quin Snyder: “I strongly feel they need a new voice to continue to evolve.” ksl.com/article/504177…6:01 PM

Christos Tsaltas @Tsaltas46
That’s big news! Quin Snyder stepped down as Utah Jazz head coach. After 8 years and 6 Playoff appearances Snyder terminated his journey at Jazz. He’s one of the most respectable coaches in this league. Interesting how gonna effect this move. #TakeNote

Quin Snyder: “I strongly feel they need a new voice to continue to evolve. That’s it. No philosophical differences, no other reason. After 8 years, I just feel it is time to move onward.

Quin Snyder remains eager to coach but felt that it was time for a change, both for himself and the Jazz, sources told @SInow. The question any incoming coach is going to have: Does Utah plan to build or are the Jazz headed for a rebuild? – 5:55 PM

David Locke @DLocke09
Quin Snyder ” I strongly feel they need a new voice to continue to evolve. That’s it. No philosophical differences, no other reason. After 8 years, I just feel it is time to move onward. I needed to take time to detach after the season and make sure this was the right decision” – 5:53 PM

Jon Hamm @JonMHamm
I bet Quin Snyder takes a year off and then returns to his roots as the head coach at Missouri.
That’s my unique take now top that someone – 5:52 PM

David Locke @DLocke09
Thanks Quin Snyder for an incredible ride. As a basketball junkie, watching you work was amazing. The hoops conversations always went to another level. Being able to call the games of your teams was an absolute honor. Wishing you only the best. – 5:49 PM

I’m guessing Quin Snyder takes a year off and then replaces Gregg Popovich in San Antonio. This is a thought I’ve shared on recent episodes of @FrontOfficeShow. – 5:44 PM

More on this storyline

 

Anthony Chiang: Pat Riley said he’ll meet with Erik Spoelstra about various things this offseason, including: “How can Bam be developed in a way to improve his consistent shot ability every night? Getting 15 shots every night, quality shots that he can get and create.” -via Twitter @Anthony_Chiang / June 6, 2022

Eric Walden: Danny Ainge says he has “a few” candidates in mind for the next coach, claims that there hasn’t been much internal discussion yet about it. He did allow that he knew Quin stepping down was a possibility and started having some guys in mind, “but I don’t know any of them well.” -via Twitter @tribjazz / June 6, 2022

Eric Walden: Ryan Smith said the team would be thorough in its coaching search. Danny Ainge said there was no specific timeline for having a new coach in place: “It’s important we get it right. We have big shoes to fill.” -via Twitter @tribjazz / June 6, 2022
