Two days into free agency, and the mighty Kevin O’Connor has already acquired two new players to reload for what looks to be another challenging season in the Northwest Division of the Western Conference.
Mo Williams, a 29-year-old point guard, returns to the team which selected him nine years ago in the second round. Marvin Williams, the former number two pick comes to Utah after seven years in Atlanta where he never played up to the expectations that came with his draft selection.
I am certain that other writers will break down how the trades impact the Jazz next season; this post is purely informative, giving you an easy way to find out what the Jazz have gotten their hands on.
It is also important to consider that both Williams could start, shifting Gordon Hayward to the two guard position. Hayward can also slide back down to the three and allow Alec Burks to come off the bench and contribute.
Here are some pieces of the conversation on social media.
Marvin Williams is the 10th best defensive rebounding small forward in the NBA (defensive rebounding rate)

Mo Williams just got his wish to be a starting point guard. And he’ll have his full name on the back of his jersey — always fun.
