Time, of course, is of the essence as Utah tries to blend together a plethora of proven and promising players.
Corbin said the Jazz will work on defensive adjustments to begin camp. Aggressiveness, commitment and pick-and-roll defense will be priorities, and some unspecified changes will be made on how Jazz players rotate in help-defense situations.
"That's where we have to make our tremendous strides," Corbin said, "is on the defensive end to give us a chance to succeed."
To avoid overloading newcomers and to build on familiarity, offensive tweaks to the Jerry Sloan system he inherited will be made gradually as camp and the season progress.
"We have an idea about who we are, of who the guys will be and how they will fit in to what we are trying to do," Corbin said. "But until you get them on the floor and get bodies moving around, it'll be difficult to see where it all fits together.
"(We have) a group of guys that is hungry to get better, a team that's not satisfied with where we are right now, and we want to go to work to get better at that."
Picture a big smile on Corbin's face, and you can imagine how thrilled that he'll get that chance Friday night.
