Ingles didn't look very good tonight. Mitchell's mid range game has looked great. Looks bigger too.

Those moves will most likely result in Bradley becoming the third-string center. Any injuries to Gobert or Davis will open up a chance for Bradley to showcase his skills.

only have 3 centers so I think he is 3rd :rolleyes:

Fournier and Nicolas Batum will be in charge of scoring, and Rudy Gobert leads a strong and physical frontcourt for Les Bleus.

Kidd taking that number significantly lowers the chances of that number being retired, unless Favors returns for a second stint with the team. Which definitely could happen in the future. Utah loves Favors and Favors loves Utah.

good! It should be reserved for stars not longevity

Two nations that know each other very well after their multiple games in the preparation period clashed in the city of Dongguan, as Australia beat Canada with a 108-92 victory in the FIBA World Cup Group H opener. Despite a shaky start in the second half, Boomers had an incredible Matthew Dellavedova taking charge, with 24 points (with 6/10 from the three-point line), five assists and three rebounds, as Australia made an impressive run (35-12) in the final period.

How will the new pieces fit?

No question about this if you've been paying attention

None of the three players has a reputation of selfishness, and both Conley and Bogdanovic ascended to the role of go-to scorer due to attrition on the roster around them, so sharing the ball shouldn't be a problem. But old habits tend to die-hard and the threat of being overly unselfish could rear its head as well. Establishing a pecking order amongst the Jazz best scorers is a prerequisite to jumpstarting the Jazz offense.

I don't think so. They will have 3 guys who you can give the ball to who can score or throw the lob to Rudy or for an open 3 to 1 of 3 or 4 guys that can actually hit it. The defense should dictate who scores this year

If he can prove that with better coaching and playing with a better supporting cast, it could lend itself to a breakout year for Mudiay. Otherwise, Dante Exum, Nigel Williams-Goss, and even Joe Ingles might be taking minutes from him.

I see all those guys besides Joe fighting for the 10th spot in the rotation along with the winner of the Howard/Kidd roster spot

Ed Davis and Jeff Green should see similar roles this year with the Jazz that they saw with the Brooklyn Nets and Washington Wizards last season, but neither player was behind or alongside a dominant center like Gobert, and that may take some getting used to. Those two, for the most part, should be plug-and-play athletes for the Jazz.

Davis won't be playing alongside Rudy or he shouldn't be

As previously noted, the Jazz made a major financial investment in the roster and are one of the contenders to represent the west in the NBA Finals. But they were far from the only ones.

Their payroll is still under the cap so basically the same investment just better players

Though the Jazz may lack superstar power, their depth should be as good as any team in the NBA. But how will they fare against the more star-laden teams across the league?

depth is one of the big questions after the top 9 as is rebounding after Rudy/Davis as is Snyder's rotations and the front office doing what it needs to do to fix any holes later on

None other than Ricky Rubio, who led Spain to the title Sunday with a victory over Argentina. Good for Rubio, always a good guy, who had his moments during his two seasons with the Utah Jazz. Though Rubio was a bit underappreciated during his time in Utah, it was still a good decision for the Jazz to move on and see if they can improve with point guard Mike Conley.

How can you say he was underappreciated? Most people loved him despite his many flaws :wtf:
