Jazz added defensive versatility, extra punch on offense

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Battling postseason injuries and enduring early playoff exits taught the Utah Jazz the value of becoming mentally and physically tougher entering a new NBA season.

"We got to be comfortable being uncomfortable," guard Donovan Mitchell said. "That's what great teams do. They're able to adapt to different situations and they're able to put themselves in positions to win at a high level."

The Jazz took a few steps over the summer to improve their ability to adapt and shore up weaknesses. Utah re-signed point guard Mike Conley. The Jazz also strengthened their bench with the additions of Rudy Gay, Hassan Whiteside, and Eric Paschall.
