Utah Jazz Notes, Quotes 2009-10-30

Utah Jazz Notes, Quotes 2009-10-30--The Jazz are facing a Saturday deadline to come to agreement with Ronnie Brewer on a contract extension. Brewer otherwise would become a restricted free agent at season's end. He also is the last remaining member of the Jazz's core of young players -- which includes Deron Williams, Paul Millsap and C.J. Miles -- not signed long-term. "I've still got to play and do the things that I set in my mind before the season and preseason: Try to help this team out and get better than what I was last year," Brewer said. Only four members of the 2006 draft class have signed extensions so far: Toronto's Andrea Bargnani, Oklahoma City's Thabo Sefolosha and Portland's Brandon Roy and LaMarcus Aldridge.

--The Jazz brought a remarkable streak to Denver, having won their opener the last six seasons. Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said there was no secret to his team's success on opening night, though he noted that Utah has been fortunate in avoiding injuries to start recent seasons. The last time the Jazz dropped their opener came Oct. 30, 2002, a 100-75 loss at New Orleans.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "He's been an absolute total pro -- absolute total pro" -- Jazz general manager Kevin O'Connor, on Carlos Boozer's return to Utah, after a tumultuous off-season in which Boozer campaigned for a trade.
