Uncertainty surrounds Jazz as 9 set to become free agents; players lament missing playoffs

Soon-to-be free agents Al Jefferson, Paul Millsap, Mo Williams and Randy Foye left the Utah Jazz arena together Thursday afternoon, walking into an uncertain future less than 24 hours after their season came to an abrupt end.

The Jazz missed the playoffs for the second time in three years following Wednesday night's loss in Memphis. Yet unlike years past, an unprecedented two-thirds of the players have expiring contracts.

While most expressed an interest in returning, all acknowledged the team could have an entirely different look next season. As many as nine players could be gone, including starters Jefferson, Millsap, Williams and Foye.
