Quin Snyder responded to reports linking him to the head coaching positions with the Los Angeles Laker and San Antonio Spurs.
“To be honest, having to address this type of question in any form, in my view, is disrespectful to the teams that are mentioned themselves,” Snyder said. “I think specifically, these types of discussions are also disrespectful to coaches. And I love the guys that I coach. I love these players. And frankly, my focus is on our guys and our team. And as I said, addressing hypotheticals in these types of questions in any form I feel like is disrespectful. And that’s how I would characterize that.”
Snyder received a contract extension in 19-20, but it is unknown how many years he has left on his deal. Snyder, however, is not believed to be in the final season of his contract.
On Wednesday, Snyder declined to discuss his contractual status.
“I’ve never talked about my contract from day one, and I’m not going to,” he said. “That’s not something that I’m going to comment on now, nor at any point in the future. That’s not something that the Jazz have done. I personally don’t want to or believe in getting into public contract discussions.”
