    Favors was a major piece in Utah's rise to playoff contention during his first eight seasons in Utah before being traded to New Orleans in 2019. He only sparingly had the same impact in his return season. Favors, 30, averaged 5.4 points and 5.5 rebounds last season in a limited role behind Gobert. Depending on Conley's figure, the Jazz could stand to save upwards of $40 million in tax money with the trade.
    major piece?

    Considering Favors' production last season, it's a move that makes sense, but it's also one that shows the cold reality of the NBA. It's the second time in three seasons Favors has been traded from Utah in a cost-cutting move. Two summers ago, with the team looking to move the roster to a more offensively potent unit, Favors was dealt to New Orleans in order to open up space for Conley and free agent Bojan Bogdanovic.
    more the hard stupidity of the Jazz. How many picks now to get rid of guys they should have never signed?

    In the last two seasons, the team has spent two first-round picks — Udoka Azubuike last season and now this trade (plus some more assets along the way) — addressing the 15 or so minutes Gobert isn't in the game.
    gave up picks to get rid of Bradley who was cheap and improving and Davis who should have never been signed when they needed a starting 4 and still do. Picks to get rid of Exum. Burke I think too. Nice job Wizard!

    He could envision Jared Butler's fit with the team; how his experience at not only playing but winning at high levels could help the Utah Jazz; how he, as a rookie, may be able to find a way into the rotation.
    unless he went to Duke probably not. Stars will be glad to have him though!

    It’s rare then to turn around and use that cleared cap space to bring back more salary. It’s like selling the timeshare that the family can’t afford only to use that money to buy a boat.
    Would like to think they got rid of Favors because he sucks not just to clear money. Still need players

    I think after adding Butler in the backcourt, considering they already have Trent Forrest, and the other four main guard pieces that ate up the majority of the minutes last season, the backcourt doesn’t need further help.
    They have Mitchell and maybe Conley and ideally Ingles and O'Neale if they get the starting 4 they desperately need but a rookie isn't likely to help COTY, Forrest can't shoot and might be gone now, Clarkson sucks and Oni is an end of the bench energy guy until proven otherwise. They can certainly do more

    Smith and Zanik seem to believe the Jazz championship window is firmly open right now and they are willing to pay the price to compete at that level. That’s good ownership/management and a good sign for Jazz fans.
    COTY still has his job and it doesn't sound like Clarkson is going anywhere so it's hard to get excited about paying tax

    I’d expect Jarrell Brantley, Juwan Morgan, Trent Forrest, Elijah Hughes, Udoka Azubuike, Matt Thomas, and MaCio Teague who the Jazz signed as an undrafted free agent) to be on the roster.
    Oni should be

    However, he played four years at Kansas and has an NBA body so the adjustment to the NBA shouldn’t be as steep as it is for other young big men. At some point, he probably needs to be thrown into the pool to see if he’ll sink or swim.
    start with summer league, camp and the Stars first

    I think there is some hindsight at play here that makes the Favors signing look worse today than it did at the time.
    looked horrible at the time and blaming all the problems on Bradley was even worse

    In that sense, it wasn’t a bad deal at the time, though it was far from a home run.
    they don't have a PF that COTY will play so like Davis the year before it looked horrible and was even worse when he sucked

    What continues to be perplexing is the decision to use a first-round draft pick on Azubuike last year when they were planning on giving Favors such an enormous deal just days later.
    that made total sense. The draft is for the future not now.

    Dan Weiss: GM Brian Wright told me in our draft recap show that Devin Vassell & Tre Jones will both be playing on the @spurs summer league squads in Utah & Las Vegas.

    Sounds like they're holding out for Nic Batum to want to team up with Rudy. Oni has been shooting the ball decently from 3 in the Olympics, so hopefully that's a sign he's improved a bit. MaCio Teague is another 6-4 guard, so not sure why he's coming in, but guess he has talent.

    Backup C a bit of a problem now. No choice but to play Azubuike and hope he doesn't totally suck, though the Thunder didn't extend the QO to Bradley, so maybe you can bring him back cheap too. Doesn't fix the playoff issue though, Dok is unplayable in the playoffs, so need to find a point of difference there, instead of trying to find a replica of Gobert so you don't need to chance anything when he rests.

    Schroder will be competing with several other free agents at the same position, including Kyle Lowry, Lonzo Ball, Mike Conley, Spencer Dinwiddie and Paul (if he opts out of his final year). “He may get squeezed,” a Western Conference executive told Bleacher Report.

    Batum wouldn't have played much last year if they'd had him. Would have probably been in Oni or maybe Niang's slot. Got to have a coach that will play the guys you sign. Guess if they give him their exception and Niang is gone he might get minutes. Should probably start but so should Ersan have

    Oni is streaky. He started out horribly for the Stars before finishing well as a rookie and started out last year well. I think he can be a good shooter.

    Bradley will be cheap and he fits and is getting better but they wouldn't admit they blew it again. They have to get a seasoned vet. Udoka looked nowhere near ready. He needs to get big minutes with the Stars. Always thought they needed a different look from Gobert. Never thought that was a good idea

    Italy made it to the quarterfinals of the Olympic Games after storming back against Nigeria to secure the win, 80-71, at Saitama Super Arena on Saturday. Nicolo Melli and Achille Polonara put the finishing touches on a 14-0 sprint generating a 70-64 lead. The European side held on to secure the victory punching in the ticket for the next round. The team led by Meo Sacchetti will rank first in Group B if Germany beats Australia by a margin of 17 points or less later in Tokyo. It will be in second place in any other case. A helpful reminder, the three group winners and the best-placed second will be seeded for Sunday’s draw.

    The Jazz had depleted their draft stockpile in recent seasons acquiring Mike Conley from the Grizzlies and trading for Jarrell Brantley in 2019, but now have access to additional trade and draft assets in the coming season.
    let's say the main reason why they were depleted at least. Having to pay teams to take bad contracts

    The Utah Jazz star played just under 18 minutes for the French National team, recording six points, four rebounds, an assist, and two steals as they blew out Iran 79-62.


    Gobert played all of his minutes in the first and third quarters of the matchup, resting the second and fourth quarters.


    Gobert and France move onto the quarterfinals where they will be joined by Jazz teammate Joe Ingles and Australia. Luka Doncic and Slovenia, while former Jazzman Ricky Rubio and Spain have already advanced to the quarterfinals as well.


    The quarterfinals is made up of the top two teams from each of the three group play tournaments, plus the two best third-place finishers. So far, the Gobert-led French roster is the only team to advance to the quarterfinals with a perfect record.


    The Men’s Olympic Basketball quarterfinals will begin on Monday.
