Xiao Yao You is starting to rub some people the wrong way
Default Re: the team has signed guard Kyle Weaver

Former Jazz beatwriter Ross Siler noted on Twitter that he was rather impressed the Jazz would take a chance on Weaver so late in the season considering the team is currently 5.5 games out of the playoffs with seven games left to play. I'm impressed that the Jazz, with their luxury-tax payroll, would keep spending to take a look at Weaver in final weeks of lost season. It'll cost the Jazz more than $100,000 in salary and luxury-tax payments for the 10 days Weaver is under contract. Again, I'm impressed. A lot of teams also would wait until Friday to make the signing, since the Jazz don't play again until then.

Considering the money they received and saved in the Deron deal and the fact they've been shot-handed through all their injuries they hardly deserve any kudos for the move.
