Danny Ainge met with the Utah Jazz last week and is a candidate to join their front office. Ainge is being considered for an advisory role just a few weeks after he left the Boston Celtics.

Justin Zanik will remain as Utah's primary decision-maker either way.

Dennis Lindsey exited as Utah's executive vice president of basketball operations on Sunday in a decision made by Ryan Smith.

Smith is known to have a close relationship with Ainge.
