50/50 on the move. Sentimentality would have had me keep Millsap, but it's a decent long term move. Hopefully Corbin can get Biendrins up and about, he could be a pretty good backup if he gets his mojo flowing. Future 1sts could be anything, but that plus expiring deals does leave a lot of options open for future trades.
They're obviously tanking. That's what it comes down to. They'll have the money to sign G and Favors next year. Will Biedrins work with the Mailman? It's a contract year and a new team. Maybe he can return to form. As things stand now I'd look to start him and Kanter. Favors and Kanter getting the bulk of the minutes and Biedrins and Evans the rest. Either Jefferson or Rush starting alongside G and Obviously Burke as things stand now.
Couldn't hurt. Karl went from being a 48% FT shooter as a rookie into a good one. A lot hew could learn from the Mailman. He was a double double guy. Great rebounder and shot blocker. High FG %. Looks like he still hits the boards and rebounds but the FT% is scary! He's still only 27.
Jazz swingman Gordon Hayward will not play with the team this week, but he will attend part of the summer league with the team in Florida — a good sign that he's taking management's suggestion that he seize a larger leadership role. He and Favors will participate in a Team USA minicamp later this month in Las Vegas.
Neither Favors (training) nor Kanter (rehab) are expected to be in Orlando this week.
Utah had 18 players on its summer roster as of Saturday, but Corbin said the number will be in flux due to injuries and other summer-league commitments.
