The 2008–09 Utah Jazz season was the 35th season of the franchise in the National Basketball Association (NBA), and the 30th since the team moved from New Orleans to Salt Lake City for the 1979–80 season.

Key dates[edit]

Offseason[edit]

Besides the draft, the only significant move that the Jazz made in the offseason was to trade third-string point guard Jason Hart to the Los Angeles Clippers in exchange for veteran journeyman point guard Brevin Knight on July 23.
