What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
Really curious to see who the Jazz hire to coach Quin Snyder just because that roster is such a time bomb. Do you make a last-ditch effort to save this era with someone a bit splashier? Or hire a younger coach with the idea that there are probably some lean years ahead? – 5:45 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
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

Team confirms that Quin Snyder is stepping down. ““Quin Snyder has embodied what Jazz basketball is for the last eight years,” said Utah Jazz Owner Ryan Smith. “The tireless work ethic and attention to detail Quin displayed each day is a testament to the professional he is.” – 5:44 PM

Quote from Ryan Smith: “Quin Snyder has embodied what Jazz basketball is for the last eight years. The tireless work ethic and attention to detail Quin displayed each day is a testament to the professional he is. I have nothing but admiration for Quin and respect his decision.” – 5:43 PM

quin snyder making this decision after darvin ham and, seemingly, kenny atkinson are off the board is low-key diabolical – 5:38 PM

Michael Pina @MichaelVPina
jobs that may be open for quin snyder next year: philly, brooklyn, detroit, san antonio, several others because the league is ridiculous and unpredictable – 5:36 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
FWIW: Kokoškov was an assistant for Quin Snyder both at Missouri and Utah. Had wondered if his phone would ring if Snyder stepped down as Jazz coach. Nash adds another former head coach to his bench who he has a strong relationship with. Igor’s good at player development, too. – 12:34 PM

Report: Quin Snyder-Jazz impasse not about money nba.nbcsports.com/2022/06/03/rep…3:00 PM

Sarah Todd @NBASarah
If the Jazz and Quin Snyder aren’t going to come to a deal, they should do it soon. The longer they wait, the more the highly sought candidates will be gone. Darvin Ham already off the board, sounds like Kenny Atkinson is next. – 2:27 PM

Adrian Wojnarowski: After eight seasons as coach, Snyder simply decided that it’s time to step away. Conversations had been amicable with team, relationships still strong, but Snyder has decided to leave after building the Jazz into a perennial playoff contender. -via Twitter @wojespn / June 5, 2022

Adrian Wojnarowski: Utah Jazz coach Quin Snyder is planning to step down, sources tell ESPN. -via Twitter @wojespn / June 5, 2022

David J. Smith. Good discussion about the Snyder situation. Tim MacMahon: “My informed speculation is that Quin Snyder is going to end up leaving… if that happens, the Jazz would be appreciative of that decision coming sooner than later.” -via Twitter / June 2, 2022
