The Utah Jazz plan on conducting a $100 million renovation of the Vivint Arena.
The NBA has privately suggested the Jazz start from scratch on building a new arena, but the Miller family believe a renovation is their best viable option.
“Ownership has been taking steps to ensure its world-class status and exploring options on how to invest in the facility that can be the home of the Utah Jazz and provide best-in-class guest experiences,” Frank Zang, Larry H. Miller Sports & Entertainment senior vice president of communications, told the Deseret News.
Jazz president Steve Starks said the organization has been studying the possibilities and has engaged in conversations about the arena’s future for years.
“Over the last year, we made the determination to take that discussion to the next level,” said Starks, who recently took over for retired team president Randy Rigby, in a phone interview with the Deseret News.
