Could the Utah Jazz be interested in hiring former Boston Celtics President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge? ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski revealed current Jazz Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations Dennis Lindsey is transitioning into an advisory role for team owner Ryan Smith.

While Utah general manager Justin Zanik will remain in that role per Woj, speculation on whether this signaled the arrival of Ainge in the organization abounds. According to The Athletic’s Jazz beat writer Tony Jones, that speculation is well-founded. His sources relate that the former Celtics executive “is a candidate to join the Jazz.”

However, at least for the short term, it will not be in the position Lindsey has held according to The Athletic writer.

If Ainge does join the Jazz, “it is likely to be in more of an advisory role,” reports Jones. We can expect more clarity in the coming days and weeks regarding further moves by the organization.
