    I'd call it one of the worst trades they ever made. 3 firsts for a black hole!

    Here’s hoping for a clean slate of health for Donovan Mitchell and the Utah Jazz in 2021-22. It could give him an opportunity to make-good on this bold claim.




    let's hope he listens to the doctors, plays D and passes the ball

    “You want to make opponents make adjustments. Him at the five shooting three is going to pull Gobert out and they’re going to have to put somebody small on him and he can take advantage of that. I think he needs to look at what position best suits the team and what position best suits how they wanna play before he just says ‘Ahh, one or the other.’”

    Brian Windhorst on candidates to coach Team USA: I would say Steve Kerr, who’s been an assistant the last few years, Erik Spoelstra, who did some work with the team earlier this summer with coaching, selecting, and I think Monty Williams will present himself as a strong candidate as well, if he wants the job going forward. Also, there is an advantage of having a college coach, because he’s sort of a neutral party. And they if they took that route, you might see Jay Wright.

    no COTY? He's supposedly one of the best and has Euro experience

    Jazz Ridiculous Three-Point Shooting
    ridiculous that their worst shooter took the most 3's

    Throughout last season, Jazz coach Quin Snyder discussed the revelation he had during the 2020 NBA playoffs in the Orlando bubble when without Bojan Bogdanovic, the team’s best shooter, the Jazz had to be willing to have a quicker trigger from the three-point line to make up star shooters absence.



    star?

    Royce O’Neale, Donovan Mitchell, and Bojan Bogdanovic each shot between 38-39 percent, while Mike Conley, Georges Niang, and Joe Ingles shooting better than 40 percent.

    goodbye Gerorges!

    Furthermore, Gay shoots the three less than half as often as Niang has during his career. While Niang had his deficiencies on the floor, his three-point shooting wasn’t one of them.

    Gay will shoot more of them this year

    Ingles saw the most dramatic leap climbing from just under 40 percent two seasons ago to 45 percent last year. Mitchell’s shooting increased by two percent, while Conley’s increased by four points.

    was at 44 + two years in a row

    Newcomer Eric Paschall saw his three-point shooting jump to 33 percent last season in Golden State, a number the Jazz would like to see continue to grow. Meanwhile, rookie Jared Butler was one of the best shooters in the draft knocking down 41 percent of his three-point attempts at Baylor last season on a healthy 6.2 attempts.

    will they play?

    Though Jordan Clarkson has earned the nickname “Flamethrower” due to his ability to scorch the nets, the guard shot just 34 percent from three last year, a dip from his previous two seasons, and another area where the Jazz could see improvement.

    more likely to drop. You forget he started the season over 40%. He was horrendous in the final months

    Virtus Bologna’s win over LBA newcomer Tortona in SuperCup Quarterfinal game yesterday night was overshadowed by a serious injury occurred to Nigerian center Ekpe Udoh, who appears to have injured his patellar tendon in a no-contact situation. Former Fenerbahce center was taken out of the court in a stretcher and after the game coach Sergio Scariolo confirmed the seriousness of the injury, adding that the team will look for a replacement in the market: “He’s our cornerstone, both on attack and on defense. It’s dramatic, I hope that it serves to understand that you need to respect the players. Here there are stickers on the court everywhere, in the NBA it’s not the case. We will look for a replacement”.

    “We are in shock and worried,” Scariolo said after the game on Udoh’s injury. The Italian coach spoke against the use of slippery stickers on basketball floors which have often caused players to hurt themselves.

    However, if you ask former Suns forward Matt Barnes, the Suns aren’t favored to make it back to the Finals. In an episode of “The Jump”, Barnes had this to say. (via Fadeaway World, NBA on ESPN YouTube): “Love CP! Love Book! Experience is the best teacher and they have that now. But if the West is healthy, it’s going to be loaded, and it’s going to be tough [for the Suns] to get out. I wouldn’t bet on them, with all due respect. Like I said, great young team, one of the best floor generals we’ve ever seen in the history of this game. But again, a lot of things lined up perfect for them to do what they did last year.”
    – via Gerard Samillano @ Clutch Points


    I'd agree everything went right for them but them and the Jazz were way ahead of everyone so they have to be the favorite still

    At the time, this exchange felt like a solid return for both teams. Jeff Malone may be one of history’s forgotten players, but he was no scrub. He earns the unique distinction of being the second-best Malone in Utah Jazz history.

    it looked like a steal at the time. i'd have been happy if they'd cut Malone and they got Horny for him!

    Meanwhile, the Utah Jazz acquired franchise mainstay Derrick Favors in the exchange. He’s spent the vast majority of his 11-year career in Salt Lake City. His best individual season came in 2015-16, with averages of 16.4 points and 8.1 rebounds per game. As a conventional big, his ability to impact the game has lessened in the wake of the three-point revolution, but he was a serviceable rotation player up until he was traded this very offseason.

    sad that he's the best they got for one of their best players ever. Even sadder that he played 11 years and two stints with the Jazz while letting Millsap and Bradley go!

    Devin Harris may not have been as splashy a name as Williams, but he was a reasonable replacement for him during his stay in Utah. Furthermore, the Jazz used the two first round picks they acquired in the deal on Enes Kanter and Gorgui Dieng. The former was a starting center for the Utah Jazz until he was eventually usurped by Rudy Gobert and his vastly superior interior defense.


    Harris was horrible and to get rid of him they had to take on Marvin Williams!

    This trade may have been far from the best deal the Utah Jazz have made in their franchise history, but given their apparent urgency to move Williams, they did receive a solid return for the soon-to-regress point guard. That makes it the best deal the franchise has made in their history with the Nets.




    so much urgency that no one but the Nets knew he was available and they took the 2nd offer!

    10. Zach LaVine, Lonzo Ball, DeMar DeRozan (or Nikola Vucevic)
    Bulls from lottery to 10th is a big leap. Lavine has yet to show he can win games. Couldn't do it last year with Vuc. Derozan and Ball puts them over the top? Vuc is the all star not Ball or Demar

    9. Donovan Mitchell, Rudy Gobert, Bojan Bogdanovic
    from 1st to 9th and Bojan and Mitchell ahead of Conley, O'Neale and Ingles!

    5. Nikola Jokic, Jamal Murray, Michael Porter Jr.
    When will Murray be back and will they play any D?

    4. Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green
    when will Klay back and how good will he be

    AD is arguably a top 3 player when he’s healthy and LeBron is still LeBron. Old man LeBron is still better than 99 percent of the league. Perhaps the only two players unanimously better than him at this point are Giannis and Kevin Durant.

    injuries and Westbrook aren't getting you anywhere

    The former Seminole followed it up with an even more impressive performance during summer league with the Jazz.

    I'd say doin g it in the regular season is more impressive

    Forrest led the Jazz in scoring at 15.8 points while also dishing out 6.8 assists, and grabbing 6.0 rebounds per game playing in both Salt Lake City and Las Vegas. Most importantly, he showed an improved feel for the offense and a dramatically improved jump shot.

    had a good feel last year. Just couldn't shoot

    Last season, Forrest shot just 19 percent from three, not nearly good enough to be considered a threat on the perimeter. But in seven appearances during summer league, the guard knocked down 7-18 deep balls for a very healthy 38 percent.

    still looked ugly

    Adrian Dantley is one of the finest midrange shooters in NBA history and an undisputed Utah Jazz icon. At the cost of a rapidly aging Spencer Haywood, that’s a pretty good return.




    he could certainly it it from 20 feet in but he was known for his work near the hoop not the mid range

    On first blush, that seems like a fair price for Clarkson’s services. Dante Exum entered the National Basketball Association with a lot of promise, as he was selected 5th overall in the 2014 NBA Draft by the Utah Jazz. Unfortunately, injuries have derailed the young Aussie’s career. By 2021, Exum is 26-year-old. He missed his entire sophomore season with a knee injury, played 66 games the following year, and hasn’t managed even 45 games in a season since.

    would have rather kept Exum in retrospect as horrible as he was

    As for those two second-round picks, it’s possible that in hindsight, the Cavaliers will be glad to have landed them. We’ve seen productive players slip to the second-round with increasing frequency in the NBA, with Nikola Jokic and Draymond Green serving as two prominent examples of second-round steals. With that said, contending teams like the Utah Jazz will always have to take that risk in efforts to upgrade their immediate roster: the odds of a second-round selection yielding a player of Jordan Clarkson’s (ironically, a second-round pick himself) value simply remain too low.

    any player that's not Clarkson would be great

    As for Clarkson, we referred to the imperfections in his game already, and they do exist. He is, like many undersized scoring guards, prone to bouts of inefficiency. Last season, he was shooting a solid 58% effective field goal percentage (eFG%) heading into the All-Star Break. He shot a grizzly 49 eFG% afterwards, and that trend continued into the playoffs with an eFG% of 50.9.



    and COTY loved every minute of that shit show!

    That kind of slippage in offensive efficiency holds the Utah Jazz back from receiving a perfect grade for the Jordan Clarkson deal, but nonetheless, his services remain impressive value for the cost of a point guard who can’t stay healthy and two second-round picks

    the 3 years and big bucks left on his contract gives it an F
