    For the third straight season, the Jazz will have a different starter at point guard
    It's at least 4. Rubio, Hill, Neto/Mack, Burke

    The second unit will be almost exclusively comprised of new faces, including rookie guard Donovan Mitchell and veteran small forward Thabo Sefalosha.
    We'll see. One of them could start. No guarantee either is in the rotation either.

    The Jazz have made a habit of bringing in famous basketball minds to watch practice, and then pick their brains afterwards.
    Tom Thibadeau dropped by two years ago, before he went to the Minnesota Timberwolves. On Tuesday it was former Los Angeles Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak.
    Going to have a 5th GM in the front office?

    "Ultimately, the Jazz will have to find a go-to scorer to replace the shot creation lost with Hayward and George Hill both signing elsewhere," Pelton wrote. "If that player is found, Utah will remain competitive through Gobert's prime."
    Maybe next year

    The 6-foot-7, 210-pound Braun played collegiately at North Dakota State and has spent the last three years playing in Europe. He first played for a team in Belgium and then was in Germany last season, where he averaged 8.0 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game.
    The Stars new coach is German. Might be why he got a spot?

    Towns and Jokic have to play better D to be ahead of Rudy though Rudy may not be as good offesnively this year with the squad around him. Cousins!

    Gasol and a healthy Embiid are the only ones I could really see until someone proves otherwise

    Taylor Braun signed with the Jazz on Tuesday morning, giving the Jazz their 20th player. He's a North Dakota State alum, who most recently played with ratiopharm Ulm of the German Bundesliga. That Bundesliga tie, and the overwhelming likelihood that Braun is cut and is sent to the SLC Stars, means that new Stars head coach (and former Bundesliga head coach) Martin Schiller has his fingerprints all over this move.

    [QUOTE]Donovan Mitchell spoke to media after practice and had a lot to say about his first official practice as a Jazzman.

    My first impression is how easy it is to root for our promising new rookie. His personality shines every time he speaks to the media. My favorite thing he shared was how the Jazz focused on

    Deron Williams was highly touted, but spent his rookie season playing behind veteran point guard Keith McLeod.
    And Palacio! Jerry.

    Dante Exum was the fifth pick of the 2014 draft. He ended up a starter in the second half of the season, but that was out of necessity because Quin Snyder lost trust in Trey Burke.
    Out of necessity because they didn't have an NBA pg until they finally brought Neto over

    But almost all within the organization are expecting to make the postseason again, or at least contend for a playff spot. And Mitchell is expected to play a role in that.
    I'm ok with him starting the year in the G-league

    Mitchell enters training camp as a backup shooting guard.
    He shouldn't. He needs to earn it

    He has a two-way ability, even as a rookie, that the Jazz are going to need.
    We'll see. If he can't hit open shots he'll have a tough time like much of the team

    [QUOTE]Mitchell is also going to have to make up for some physical shortcomings. His frame is small for a shooting guard. At 6-foot-3, he

    "I've known Thabo since I got in this league, and I know he's an all-around player who can play on both ends of the floor," Jerebko said. "In two weeks, he's shown a lot of offensive skills, and he's made a lot of shots. He's worked on his game this summer, you can tell."

    If he's making shots at the rate he did during his peak in Oklahoma City, it would lift the Jazz in a really significant way. In the 2012-13 season, he shot 41.9 percent on 3.2 3-point shots per game. To give you some context, that's nearly identical to Joe Johnson's 3-point rate and accuracy last season.
    5 years ago. Don't count on it!

    Remember last year, when the biggest surprise of training camp was coming in to find out that Alec Burks and Derrick Favors weren't especially close to being healthy?
    Don't remember hearing that about Favors. He looked improved in the first pre-season game and was never the same after

    We don't want to wear (assistant coach) Igor Kokoskov out."


    But a healthy roster at this point in the season is already a step forward compared to 2016-17.
    2 days and 3 practices!

    Jerebko's going to be playing essentially all of his minutes on the Jazz in a stretch four role, someone Snyder can put on the floor who can shoot without losing a lot of size.
    I imagine the 5 as well

    He'll have to fight for those stretch four minutes with Joe Johnson. "Joe, in a pinch, can guard the three, though I think we'd like to keep him more at the four," Snyder said when asked about the 36-year-old veteran.
    After what we saw last year it would be stupid to have him at the 3 unless the match-up really calls for it

    Jerebko is kind of a hybrid option at the power forward spot: he's not as good of a shooter and scorer as Johnson, but a better screener and rebounder. Of course, if screening and rebounding is most important, Derrick Favors is the best option.
    but he'll have to play the 5 when Rudy's pot at least with Joe. Jonas might be the 5 and Favors the 4 I guess but I would assume the other way around
