Jazz Working On Changes To Primary Logo

Jul 23, 2015 11:10 AM

The Utah Jazz are working on making changes to their logo this offseason or next. The change wouldn't take effect until the 16-17 season at the earliest.

They are looking to make the Jazz note logo their primary logo and introducing a new secondary logo.

The current Jazz note wordmark doesn't have "Utah" anywhere in it. The NBA requires the full team name to appear in each team's primary logo.

Ante Tomic Remains Undecided On Joining Jazz

Jun 3, 2015 9:55 PM

Ante Tomic remains undecided about his NBA plans.

Tomic was drafted by the Utah Jazz in 2008 and they would like to bring him over to help their frontcourt rotation.

"It’s neither yes nor no," Tomic told the Spanish publication Gigantes when asked whether he plans to leave Barcelona for the NBA and the Utah Jazz. "It’s difficult to summarize. Sometimes I see myself there and others no. I still have time to think it over."

Tomic has played for Barcelona since 2012 and is already 28 years old.
