New NBA labor deal helps the Jazz a bit
 
By giving NBA owners the additional percentage of the BRI that they'd been bargaining for, it results in a 50/50 split, or no worse than a 51/49 split favoring the players should BRI revenues increase in the future.

This will give a small-market team like the Jazz a huge financial boost which will help offset the type of losses the franchise was forced to endure last season reportedly around $17 million.

That alone would likely be enough to help squelch fears that the Jazz franchise might go up for sale sometime in the next few years should the team continue to lose money at such an alarming rate.

Then, if we factor in the CBA's new-and-improved salary cap restrictions/luxury tax penalties along with its revenue sharing possibilities, it should not only make the Jazz franchise increasingly solvent and profitable, but help put Utah's front office in a better position to make the team increasingly competitive in the future.

The new deal helps if u don't make stupid moves which the Jazz and other teams have done time and time again. I doubt the Jazz will take advantage of the amnesty clause just like last time despite having several candidates for example.

Who, exactly? The Jazz and small market teams don't have the luxury of using the amnesty on Jefferson either before you say it.

Why don't they? Raja Bell might make most sense as far as amnesty goes because he has little if any value.

The Jazz have no good candidate for the amnesty clause. Bell has a short contract and still has some value.

Bell and Okur are still possible trade pieces. Amnestying Raja makes no sense at all given his contract. Maybe he will improve, if not, then Ty needs to be giving him minimal minutes and be the 10th-12th guy on the rotation.

Amnestying Jefferson does not work from a financial standpoint, the Jazz can't afford to lose money, or go into the luxury tax like they did this year.

What's the chances he will improve at this stage of his career? He basically missed a season came back and sucked. At his age that likely means he's through.

They seriously overpaid him which is why he signed with the Jazz other than a better team in the first place. See no value in him other than as a throw in on another deal if anyone else will let the Jazz get away with it which is not likely. He makes all the sense in the world. Opens up salary and roster space for someone with some value.

If they re-sign Watson, Price and AK they need to open a space for Paul Carter if they think he's worth keeping around not to mention anyone else they might like.

Why do guys need minutes if they are not worthy of them? 12 man rotation?

They can afford it according to them. He doesn't make sense because he has value. Can you say Pao Gasol! :rockon:

Still has what two years? That's two years wasted on a roster spot. Take a look at him for a week in camp and if he still appears to be fading dump him!
