“When we spoke to Ty (Corbin) and his representation during the year, we laid out [that] we wanted to take the full season,” (Jazz GM Dennis) Lindsey said. “We want to take a small period now for all of us — Ty included — to decompress so we’re not making a decision based on the last possession of the last game … an emotional decision.”
Still, Corbin’s reign as only the fourth head coach in the Utah era of the franchise could be in jeopardy.
“We’ll take a short decompression period,” Lindsey said, “and in short order come together and talk to Ty.”
The Salt Lake Tribune has learned a decision on Corbin’s future could come as early as this weekend.

Bobby Portis Apologizes to Bulls for Mirotic Fight
Bobby Portis has apologized to his Bulls teammates for getting into a fight that left Nikola Mirotic with facial fractures and a concussion. “He didn’t address us today, but he did address the team before so that was taken care of,” Bulls swingman Justin Holiday said after Friday’s practice.
Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg acknowledged that Portis’ apology took place during a team meeting but did not want to go into specific details about his message. “I’ll keep that between the team,” Hoiberg said, “as far as exactly what was said in that meeting.”
