    Tony Jones: The Utah Jazz have extended qualifying offers to forward Jarrell Brantley and point guard Trent Forrest, League Sources tell The Athletic. The moves make both players restricted free agents

    via Twitter Tjonesonthenba
    interesting that they let Morgan become unrestricted and not Brantley. Morgan seemed to be a COTY guy his first year while Brantley never has

    Butler said an emotional Jazz coach Quin Snyder was the first one to call him after the selection.
    COTY likes someone other than the 10 guys he played last year?

    Utah: The Jazz are $13M or so under the tax without even accounting for Conley, so it will likely be just the TMLE for them. (They also have TPEs, the largest of which they just created in the Derrick Favors deal. But its unlikely they use them since the whole point there was to avoid a massive tax bill.)
    We actually don't know the point there. Hopefully it was because Favors sucked and they hope to improve the team and COTY proof it

    The only other thing to watch is whether any of the full MLE teams offer Conley enough of an upgrade in competitiveness that hed take a huge discount. I dont see it. Philly could waive Hill and replace him with Conley to improve their chances, but they currently have bigger fish to fry with the Ben Simmons question looming. Denver is the only other MLE team that finished anywhere near Utahs record, and they have Jamal Murray (eventually) returning from injury. Atlanta made the Conference Finals, perhaps ahead of schedule, but they have Trae Young so they likely wont be looking for a starting-caliber PG with their MLE. Boston is at least a fringe contender who needs a point guard, but is a $9.6M offer from the .500 Celtics really better from something in the $25M range from No. 1 Utah?
    He could decide he wants to be elsewhere and force a sign and trade

    Guess Zanik not as high on him as the Wizard. Another trade that doesn't look so good

    Here's the dream scenario:

    Re-sign Mike Conley

    Find a rotation player with the taxpayer midlevel exception ($5.9 million)
    Find enough players that will sign for minimum deals to fill out the rest of the roster.
    get rid of Clarkson. Use trade exceptions and put the best team around Gobert regardless of cost

    If Conley does choose to leave, the Jazz will only really have the mid-level exception to replace him, and that wouldn't yield a point guard close to Conley's ability. A perk of shedding Derrick Favors' contract (besides just saving Smith some money around $40 million, mind you), is the team may have the non-taxpayers exception ($9.5 million), but that still probably wouldn't be enough to land a true starter, let alone an All-Star.
    can get a starter for that. More than O'Neale makes

    Would Milwaukee's Bobby Portis, fresh off a championship run with the Bucks, be willing to come to Utah for the taxpayer midlevel? What about Nic Batum, who revitalized his career with the Clippers? Would it be worth it for the Jazz to use the exception to bring back Georges Niang?
    don't need to use it on Niang. Can sign him anyway

    Utah overpaid for Favors last offseason; eight months later, it used a first-round pick to get out of his deal. The Jazz also waived Matt Thomas just a few months after using a second-round pick to get him from Toronto. Those are the types of moves the Jazz don't want to replicate: Ones that end in negative value.
    good luck

    After the second-round flame out, it's been hard for some fans to remember how the Jazz were among the best in the league this season. But the Jazz are close. A couple moves could very well move the Jazz from among the best to the best.
    a couple moves that it doesn't sound like are happening. New coach and new 6th man
