With three and a half point guards on the team — the three being veteran free agents and the half being a two-guard who is unlikely to make a career at the position, the Utah Jazz are bound to make changes at the point guard position in the offseason. Mo Williams was the starter most of the season — when he was healthy — while Jamaal Tinsley and Earl Watson took turns backing him up and second-year guard Alec Burks also played some minutes at the point. It’s difficult to see any scenario where the Jazz would keep three point guards who are all over age 30 and have more than 30 years combined experience, for next year. Burks, who filled in admirably at the point during the second half of the season, is likely to stick around but not be counted on to play point. Of course Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey wasn’t about to say anything specific when asked about what the Jazz may do with their three veteran point guards in the offseason when asked Thursday. “On April 18, it’s hard to say,” he said. “We’ll see, as we have three draft picks. Frankly it’s too soon and too emotional to say this guy will be back, and all those guys have options so it’s … do we have time, do we have opportunity, do we have enough money in relation to all of our free agents.” Each of the three point guards discussed the possibility that they may not return to the Jazz next year.
