Who should the Utah Jazz get in the offseason?
 
If anyone has a better list of this years free agent class, please post.

Who do you guys think we could/should get in the off season, or should we resign Andrei? If Andrei leaves, we have a gap at the SF position, there's quite a few solid SF's out there that could be a good replacement for AK-47, any other positions you think we should fill (like the SG position maybe). CJ Miles is actually a free agent this year, but it's a team option, so I'm thinking we'll keep him.

Personally I think we should maybe try going after Tayshaun Prince, or even Caron Butler, even though he is injured.

There was an article over at the Bleacher Report about this

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/5...ah%20jazz%2010

I like the idea of bringing over Ante Tomic, however I don't know the details of his current contract, or if he even wants to move. Shane Battier is another guy who'd make sense, but I don't know if he wants to leave Houston (Or if they want to resign him).

Honestly though, I don't like the idea of adding early 30's guys like Caron Butler or Jason Richardson to the team. They're going to be going for their last contracts so they'll be holding out for the $ and I don't think they're good enough to keep Deron happy. You'll end up with a situation like Denver has where they'll lose Carmelo, but be stuck with mediocre talents on decent $ deals like Al Harrington and Chris Anderson for another 3-4 years, when you'll be trying to shed salary so you can rebuild.

Holy shit! He's 7'2? Couldn't really tell from that video.

Yep, he looks smaller in the vid. But it's not the best quality either.

Just read on Wikipedia he signed a 3 1/2 year deal with Real Madrid last year. So I guess that rules him out.

I wonder who's more valuable to the Grizzlies, Randolph or Marc Gasol. If they choose Randolph over Gasol, I wouldn't mind seeing Gasol as our starting center so we can move Jefferson to the PF spot.

I'm not sure what the Grizzlies salary cap situation is though.

They just gave Gay and Conley extensions and Randolph is a FA next year. Their owner can be cheap at times, I'd say he'd resign one, but not both. Gasol is restricted however, so Grizzlies may match if he accepts a decent deal from another team.

Unless Gasol gets overpaid by another team, I assume they'll resign him. I think he'd be more important to them than Randolph.

Plus, they have Arthur. He's good off the bench and even had played well when Randolph was injured. Not as good as Z-bo though.

First, you have to remember unless the Jazz can offer a better deal most players won't play for them. Maybe a few more now that the old man finally hung them up!!! Prince and Butler will go for the money or for a ring which isn't Utah.

Andrei wants to be in Utah so if the price is right you have to look at keeping him. Let's see if they keep him the rest of the month first though.

His buyout is like 5 million dollars this off-season and from what I saw in August/September he's not worth it. He didn't look as good as Koufos to me.

Again why would he come to Utah over Boston or Miami or Dallas or SA unless they have the money which doesn't look likely?

Again beggers can't be choosy In Utah you take what you can get on the FA market. Their best hope will be with Okur's expiring deal.

And that leaves their 2nd best player Millsap where? Dream on about Gasol. Kaman has to be available. Probably have to give up Millsap though unless you can find a taker for Okur and/or Jefferson(the dream scenario).

and even had played well when Randolph was injured

And as the starter as a rookie before injury and Randolph.

I guess we can use this thread too for the 2011 Draft.
http://www.nbadraft.net/2011mock_draft

Nets pick is currently at top 6.

Re: Who should the Utah Jazz get in the offseason?
 
Nets pick will be falling in all likely hood and the Jazz‘s rising. Any great centers coming out in the next couple years? One thing they've never had. A great swingman would certainly be welcome too.

Kevin O'Connor: On needing to get something for Williams before he potentially left during free agency: “The focus we really basically had was, ‘What was the percentage that Deron would stay or not stay and how close to 100 percent on the return was this deal?’ We felt it was really close and, therefore, it wasn’t worth the risk.”

So you take the first offer instead of shopping him to the highest bidder? Where is the logic in this?

Re: Who should the Utah Jazz get in the offseason?
 

I'm sure every team in the league would love to have him and his contract.

As for the picks --- right now in our Mock Draft we have them getting Harrison Barnes and Kawhi Leonard. ESPN.com

PF's?

East is probably better 1-5 maybe 6 now but west still deeper even with the Denver/Utah trades.
