    Default 2019 off-season- Bring back the same group for more of the same?

    Here we go. Sounds like Favors will be back and possibly Rubio as well and Exum obviously isn't going anywhere anytime soon

    Tobias Harris, meanwhile, is a native of New York and was intrigued by Philadelphia over the course of this season, dating back to his time with the Clippers. Around the league, executives believe several other teams, such as Memphis, Utah, Dallas and Brooklyn, will also provide competition for Harris.

    The Utah front office believes the team is close to being a championship contender. If the Jazz can attract a top tier free agent, that might just be enough to get them there.
    They had their guys and it would have cost them Exum. You think SA would have held on to Exum this long? They know when to cut their losses

    Mitchell can ball-handle and get his own shot, but almost never gets other guys shots.

    Lindsey will be forced to make several spot-on choices in a sea of incorrect options
    Get the best guys you can that fit. Ricky never fit. Favors hasn't fit since Rudy emerged. Exum sucks. It's not that difficult. Make a list of the guys that make sense around Rudy and Mitchell and go after them.


    Like any GM in the NBA (or in any league for that matter), Dennis Lindsey will be tasked with making a long list of some of the most terrible yet all-too-important decisions that will shape the next five-plus years of Utah Jazz basketball.
    5 years? 2 at the most. Probably just next year. Will be another year before they get serious about keeping Rudy in town

    His first official item of business will come on June 20, the day of the NBA draft where the Jazz will have the 23rd and 53rd overall picks. This will be a walk in the park relative to what comes later in the summer. Sure, there will be some pressure to not draft a non-factor rookie like Grayson Allen tended to be this year outside of a couple of late scoring outbursts. But again, there are worse challenges that await.
    Unless they get extremely lucky whoever they draft should have no impact next year on a 50 win team. Should be considered a Star until he proves otherwise

    Cut ties with fan favorites in pursuit of title contention or keep the most lovable Jazz team in years intact and embrace playoff mediocrity?
    What is lovable about them? Not a whole lot more lovable than the darkest period of Al ball

    Dwight Howard did it twice. Rudy Gobert has done it three times. DeAndre Jordan did it three times, too. Hassan Whiteside did it once when he was making All-Star pushes. Now, Favors has joined the club as well.
    which just tells us Favors has to go. He is Rudy's back up

    With that, Utah has officially entered a phase of team building that Jae Crowder acknowledged later in the day is incredibly difficult: Going from good to great, a task he said is much harder than going from bad to good.
    It's really hard if you don't even try

    Offensively, the Jazz finished the regular season 14th in offensive rating (110.2) and 17th in points per game at 111.7. These mediocre numbers came despite the fact that, according to the subscription-based website Cleaning The Glass, Utah finished fourth in the league in percentage of their shots attempted at the rim and eighth in percentage of their shots as 3-pointers, which are the two most desirable shots.
    Other teams will let Ricky, Favors and Exum have those shots all night long. That's over 40 million in those so called desired shots. That is the heart of the problem right there
