The Jazz surprised no one Friday when they picked up team options for 2013-14 on their four core young players: Gordon Hayward, Derrick Favors, Alec Burks and Enes Kanter. For Favors and Hayward, it's their fourth-year option, and they will become restricted free agents at the end of 2014, assuming the Jazz do not sign the players to extensions before then.
Kanter and Burks will be going into their third seasons. The Jazz also hold team options on them for 2014-15.
"These young guys, they've worked extremely hard," coach Tyrone Corbin said. "They've shown improvement and they'll continue to do that. They deserve to be rewarded with the extra year on their contract."
