"I wish I could have played a full season, but at the same time, I felt I grew a lot," Hood said after the season. "Mentally I learned the game and towards the end I got a lot more comfortable. I don’t feel like it was necessarily a wasted season."
Hood averaged 8.7 points per game on 41.4 percent shooting from the field while knocking down 36.5 percent of his 3-point attempts. He also managed to score 20.1 points per game on 51.5 percent shooting during a five-game stretch in April.
"I’m glad he’s been able to stay healthy these last few weeks because I know how badly he’s been wanting to play," coach Quin Snyder said. "He’s clearly capable of putting the ball in the basket, he’s got the ability to create his shot and has a mid-range game. There’s not a lot of guys who have a real consistent mid-range game and he’s able to do that."
Hood may be in line for a bench role with Alec Burks set to return from a shoulder injury, but he said he wouldn't mind the change in role.
"I don’t have a preference," he said. "I came off the bench and I started. We want Alec back healthy. He’s been great in my improvement. Regardless of what happens we’re both going to be effective on the court. He was starting before he got hurt, so it's probably going to happen. I’m comfortable coming off the bench or starting if I have to step up."
During the offseason, Gobert said his focus will be on improving his post game and shooting, while also strengthening his lower body.
"Of course I want to be back," Booker said, per the Salt Lake Tribune. "I got a sense that they want me back."
In 79 games this season, Booker averaged 7.2 points and 5.0 rebounds.
"I think I've still got a lot of room for improvement," Burke said. "I look forward to getting better."
During the offseason, Burke said he will work on changing his body to improve his quickness, reports the Salt Lake Tribune.
"I have to be quicker," Burke said.
Despite missing the playoffs, Burke said the team proved it can compete with the top teams in the league.
"We showed we can beat the top teams in this league, so I think we're excited about the future," he said.
"The experience we're getting as a group is happening along the way," Hayward said. "Just because we played well after the All-Star break, nobody is going to be satisfied with that."
"I feel like there's still a lot of room for me to improve," he said. "I'll take a month off and get right to it."
