Newest Jazz players bring versatile skills to changing NBA

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) The changing style of play throughout the NBA had an impact on how the Utah Jazz approached free agency and retooled its roster this offseason.

The Jazz announced their latest additions Friday - seven-time All-Star Joe Johnson, George Hill and Boris Diaw. All three provide veteran leadership and playoff experience, but are also versatile players that can fill multiple positons with a variety of skills that give coach Quin Snyder plenty of flexibility.

"It's huge," general manager Dennis Lindsey said. "Allows us to get a variety of combinations on the court. Allows us to play small if we choose to play small. Especially with today's NBA and where it's going."
