    be hard to take Kessler out of the rotation when Udoka is ready. Olynyk will have to go soon.

    Sexton is better than Mitchell. Faster, better shooter, better finisher, gets after it on D...

    Clarkson still sucks. At least Hardy benched him down the stretch.

    Gay might make himself tradable?

    Great to see everyone playing D for a change. Sharing the ball. Pushing it...

    Walker Kessler getting early minutes against Nikola Jokic.

    Will Hardy said the Jazz wouldn't do him any favors if they tried to protect him against playing against the best NBA players.
    Early minutes, he's been fine, gets a quick bucket off an offensive put back.

    Seemed like he did. Lauri was covering Jokic not Kessler

    “A lot of teams have just basically become draft teams and trade teams, and that’s a trend that you see,” Smith said. “You don’t rule out free agency, it’s just a little bit harder as you look at the free agent class next year and say, ‘How many top 20 or top 40 players are coming up?’ There’s just very few.”
    just a few and you just got rid of at least one

    Now, Vanderbilt did foul out of the game midway through the fourth quarter and his foul trouble kept him off the court more than Hardy probably would have liked. But that kind of energy was infectious and led to some great play from rookie Walker Kessler.
    Right now he'd ideally be coming off the bench as an energy guy. Going to have to develop offensively to be more than that

    With the nerves of the first game behind them, the Jazz head out onto the road and things won’t get any easier. The second opponent the Jazz face will be Rudy Gobert and the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday.
    Wolves better play better around Rudy in that one

    So, are the Jazz good? They looked pretty good last night. But what does that mean for them going forward? Much has been discussed lately about tanking, but watching this team play, they are just built too well to be a tanking team. They probably aren’t a playoff team, but then again, who really knows at this point? If certain guys take some strides and play like they did last night, they could absolutely squeeze into the play-in game, which in my opinion would be so much fun. I understand the tanking sentiment, but looking at the odds it just doesn’t look promising enough to throw a whole season away and the “winning culture” that has been talked about recently. The Jazz now have the draft capital and plenty of young prospects to pull off something crazy if they wanted to try and make a run at the #1 pick even without tanking. But then again, whoever ends up with that #1 pick probably isn’t trading it. Bottom line, this Jazz team came out on fire last night, and it was awesome to watch, and gives us hope that this season can be fun to get behind this new-look bunch.It’s crazy how refreshing it felt watching this team play last night. A new sense of pace. A new sense of determination, goals, and aspirations. Are they playing for a championship? Probably not. But these guys played hard, played as a team, and played to win. And the vibes?? They were immaculate.
    as they trade vets it will look different. They literally have no one to replace Conley though getting rid of Clarkson would make you better.

    The Los Angeles Lakers had the opportunity this offseason to acquire Bojan Bogdanovic, Mike Conley, Rudy Gay and a 2023 first round pick from the Utah Jazz in exchange for Russell Westbrook and their first round picks in 2027 and 2029, according to Tony Jones of The Athletic.
    Lakers would be a lot better and the Jazz a lot worse. Still have Clarkson stinking up the joint

    Eric Walden: Rudy Gobert, on being traded and seeing the Jazz torn down: “I wouldn’t say I was surprised. … I knew Danny (Ainge) … was trying to do what he thought was good for the future of the franchise.”

    SALT LAKE CITY – Rudy Gobert said he is rooting for the Utah Jazz to succeed even now as he plays for the rival Minnesota Timberwolves.

    Really liking the Vanderbilt and Kessler combo at the 5. Vanderbilt is getting in early foul trouble which he needs to clean up, but defensively they're both holding their own and grabbing the boards too.

    Markkanen is interesting too. Obviously has a ton of talent and playing well early, so I wonder if he's one they'll look to flip for more picks given he's on a decent deal. Getting 03/04 vibes from this team, play their asses off and can sneak up on teams who may not expect it.

    Lauri is as good as gone. They won't look so good once Conley is moved. Definitely like Hardy. Imagine if they'd had guys playing like this alongside Gobert
