Morning links: Utah Jazz on Sports Illustrated’s Top 100 list; Garett Bolles gives a hug

With NBA season around the corner, The Crossover has begun unveiling its annual list of top 100 NBA players of 2018, and five Utah Jazz players appear so far.

Rodney Hood is No. 87, Derrick Favors is No. 67, new point guard Ricky Rubio is No. 61 and Rudy Gobert is all the way up at No. 15.

Former Jazzman Gordon Hayward is just behind Gobert at No. 16. Sports Illustrated mistakenly said George Hill (63) is still with Utah.

The Top 10 will be unveiled Wednesday.

Someone needs a hug

Back in August, former Ute and current Denver Broncos rookie Garett Bolles said he treats his quarterback like his wife.

Making his first career start against the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday night, Bolles had an impressive performance, and at one point gave his quarterback, Trevor Siemian, a hug after a touchdown.

On Tuesday, Bolles’ wife Natalie tweeted a humorous response to her husband’s hug.
