Utah Jazz Sign GM Justin Zanik to Multi-Year Contract Extension

The Utah Jazz signed general manager Justin Zanik to a multi-year contract extension. Zanik is entering his fourth season as Utah’s GM, and he works alongside Danny Ainge and the Jazz front office to oversee day-to-day basketball operations. 

Per the NBA, Ainge had kind words for Zanik: 

“Justin’s basketball acumen, ability to create meaningful relationships throughout the League, and management of our front office are invaluable assets. We’re thrilled that he’ll continue to lead the team.”

Zanik originally joined the Jazz as an assistant GM in 2013. He remained with the Jazz from 2013-2016, joined the Milwaukee Bucks as their assistant GM from 2016-2017, and then hopped back to the Jazz as GM in 2017. 

“My family and I have fallen in love with this great city and the state of Utah, and I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to continue this journey with the Utah Jazz,” Zanik said. “I have a deep appreciation for my partnership with Ryan and Danny and am excited about our path forward with Coach Hardy. We look forward to building towards winning the championship our fans deserve.” 

The new-look Utah Jazz opens their season tomorrow against the Denver Nuggets and looks to take their first step in creating a championship team.
