The preseason should be underway, but the NBA is in the midst of a lockout and that is not only impacting the players but also front office executives.

"Our biological clock right now is starting to click," Jazz general manager Kevin O'Connor said.

The Jazz are preparing for what will be a busy and quick offseason.

"It's kind of running in place right now," O'Connor said. "But (we're) being prepared to move forward to get off the treadmill."

O'Connor said the organization's management has met regularly and operated under a "No surprises" motto since the lockout began on July 1.

The Jazz will sign between two and four free agents.
