The 1999–2000 NBA season was the Utah Jazz's 26th season in the National Basketball Association, and 21st season in Salt Lake City, Utah.[1] During the offseason, the Jazz signed free agent Olden Polynice, then later on signed Armen Gilliam in January. The Jazz were now the oldest team in the NBA still led by John Stockton and Karl Malone, who were both selected for the 2000 NBA All-Star Game. The Jazz would recapture the Midwest Division with a solid 55–27 record, qualifying for the playoffs for the 17th straight season. In the playoffs, the Jazz defeated the Seattle SuperSonics three games to two in the Western Conference Quarterfinals, but would lose in five games to the Portland Trail Blazers in the semifinals for the second consecutive year. Following the season, Jeff Hornacek retired after playing fourteen years in the NBA, Gilliam also retired while Howard Eisley was traded to the Dallas Mavericks, and Adam Keefe was dealt to the Golden State Warriors.
