Utah Jazz are likely entering a full-fledged rebuild and every player in the roster could be available for the right price. As Jake Fischer of Bleacher Report reports, forward Jarred Vanderbilt is attracting interest from several teams.
Vanderbilt was part of the trade that sent Rudy Gobert to Minnesota. It’s not known if the 22-year-old forward is part of the future the Jazz’s front office is envisions. Vanderbilt, 22, is considered a promising forward on team-friendly team.
“A lot of teams have called on Jarred Vanderbilt. I don’t know the number. I don’t really have any specific teams that I’ve heard of. But last I talked to Utah that he was the guy who’s getting the most calls, the most incoming calls of all the players,” Fischer said (h/t Hoopshype).
The 23-year-old forward curved role in the Minnesota Timberwolves rotation last season in his third year in the league. He averaged 6.9 points, 8.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 25 minutes per contest.
He showcased his defensive versatility and help the Timberwolves improved defensively with his size and his ability to guard from 2 to 4. He’s just 23 years old and is still growing and evolving as a player.
He found a nice role last season with the Wolves but was part of a blockbuster package that was sent to Utah for Gobert. Over the past few weeks, the Jazz has made it clear that nearly every player on the team is available for the right price.
