In a statement, via the team's website, Sloan said, “In my new role with the Jazz franchise, I hope to help the basketball operations staff and [head coach Tyrone Corbin] in any way that I can to achieve their goals. I would like to thank the Miller family for the opportunity to be part of the organization again.”
