Behind the Headlines

Shrinking Great Salt Lake, Lee-McMullin Senate race and all that Utah Jazz news

(Trent Nelson | The Salt Lake Tribune) Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert (27) blocks a shot by Memphis Grizzlies forward Jaren Jackson Jr. (13) in April. The Jazz have traded Gobert.

The Great Salt Lake hits a record low elevation — and it’s not done shrinking. With the race between Sen. Mike Lee and Evan McMullin taking shape, a columnist digs into reader questions about the contest. And the Utah Jazz get a new coach and trade a star player.
