Jazz owner Gail Miller and CEO Greg Miller were not at Saturday's Utah Reunion with all those familiar faces from New Jersey.
Their absence was noticeable, but they didn't miss the Jazz-Nets game to avoid an awkward encounter with either of the ex-Jazzmen who were traded to New Jersey in the past year.
The Millers were simply hosting their annual out-of-town retreat for Larry H. Miller Group of Companies' senior management.
The timing was coincidental but unavoidable due to a scheduling conflict.
"It had nothing at all to do with Memo (Okur) or Deron (Williams) or the fact that we were playing the Nets," Jazz senior vice president of communications Linda Luchetti said. "This was planned last summer."
Jazz president Randy Rigby was among team executives who joined the retreat in progress after attending Saturday's game, a 107-94 win that featured the return of five ex-Utah players.
