SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- With no players available because of a lockout, the Utah Jazz coaching staff is in the midst of a week-long workout for key sponsors and season ticket-holders -- women and children included.

Organization officials otherwise say they are preparing as best they can to be ready to roll whenever the lockout ends and real training camp and games begin.

Coach Tyrone Corbin on Thursday added former North Carolina State coach Sidney Lowe to his staff, and says it's possible he'll hire one more assistant.

General manager Kevin O'Connor also said the organization will be ready to move quickly on players it wants to sign or re-sign, and already is evaluating players in next year's draft.

He acknowledged some "paranoia" not knowing what current Jazz players are doing on a daily basis.
