It may be early in the season, but things are looking up for three particular college freshmen and looking down for the Utah Jazz. Will Jabari Parker, Andrew Wiggins or Julius Randle be playing in Utah next season?
Parker, Wiggins and Randle have already had the chance to show what they've got on a national stage, and each has impressed.
And while the Jazz brass may never say the word "tank," this season has to bring a sinking feeling to Utah fans who are acutely aware of the team's inauspicious 1-8 start.
So, why not give these fans a reprieve and focus on the future?
