Can the Jazz contend for a championship?

Not with the same team that went down in 5 to the 2nd best team

Quote:
How close are the Jazz to being a legitimate threat to the NBA’s best?

Farther than a couple months ago

Quote:
So much of that depends on Donovan Mitchell, and his continuing development as an NBA star. He has the keys to the city, and can take the Jazz to the next level if he truly becomes one of those generational players that he showed signs of being last season. In the glory days of NBA super teams, it seems the Jazz are still one player away from making some serious noise towards an NBA championship. But maybe, just maybe, the wizardry of Dennis Lindsey can shine through enough for the Jazz to rally with their current players and make a run. Like Rudy Gobert said himself, anything can happen in sports.

Depends on the GM and coach putting the right players around Gobert and Mitchell. Shooters in particular

Quote:
Did the Jazz just become one of the most watchable teams in the NBA? Shea Serrano, one of the kings of NBA twitter, gave a shoutout to the Jazz for being one of the most entertaining prospective teams going into this season. How did we get here? I guess that’s what having Donovan Mitchell, the DPOY, international demigod Joe Ingles, Ricky “Juan Stockton” Rubio, and now Grayson Allen will do for you. No matter how you put it, the Jazz are fun- for maybe the first time ever, and everyone is starting to realize it.

Rubio is hard to watch.

Quote:
If our Core pieces like Favors/Rubio/Crowder/Allen/Exum really improve especially from 3 point range this team could be in for a long playoff journey into the record books.

What are the chances of Favors/Rubio/Exum really improving from distance though?

Quote:
Perhaps DL is working on some type of trade to get another scorer. If that happens, then the Jazz could contend.

He's got one that Snyder won't play. He brought back the same team. You think Kidd or Niang is that scorer?

The Warriors not only signed Cousins, but they signed him for a bargain at $5.3 million for one year. The most talented big man in the game cost them some spare change they had lying around the office. There are about 44 players in the league who make more than 20 million per season. About 180 players will make more money next season than Cousins, a four-time All-Star who has been selected to two All-NBA second teams. He’s only 27.

Arguable as to if he is the most talented. He's far from the best though. I say let GS have him! More likely to hurt them than help them

The Jazz are near the bottom of the summer league standings and this shouldn’t bother any of us in the slightest. The coaching staff has likely already learned more than what they needed to know about new addition in Allen, as well as the returning sophomore Bradley.


I'm sure they will lots more

Quote:
As far as we know, Georges Niang is still going to suit up versus the Magic. Niang has performed very well and proven himself to be an NBA player, at least as a rotational or depth piece.

You don't prove you are an NBA player in summer league or G-league.

2 way

1 more 2 way and one more regular with Niang and Kidd rumored. Maybe still a trade of Burks/Thabo/Udoh to come?

The Jazz signed Jairus Lyles to an Exhibit 10 contract before the game. Basically, what that means is that Lyles will get a shot in training camp with the Jazz, albeit likely on a full roster. The overwhelming likelihood is that he's waived, and then the Salt Lake City Stars would have his G-League rights.

So partial guarantee and not 2 way?

Can shoot. So the Stars roster is coming together. Allen, Bradley, Lyles...

The Jazz brass are impressed with Lyles’s defense and scoring ability, and he fits the DNA of the organization with his high character. Lyles’s deal includes an Exhibit 10 attachment, which means the team has the option to convert his contract into a two-way deal. He will likely spend time with the Salt Lake City Stars, Utah’s G-League affiliate team.

Even better. Have some guys fighting it out for the 2 way spots and maybe the 15th roster spot too?

As of right now, the terms of the deal haven’t been released, even still, this signing comes as a bit of surprise as the Jazz have three point guards that should be on the roster come October: Ricky Rubio, Dante Exum and Raul Neto. Plus, whatever point duties not taken up by those three could easily be made up by Donovan Mitchell and, based on his recent play, Grayson Allen.


They have many guys that can play every position! Rubio and Neto could be gone within the year. Exum sucks. Goss signed a 3 year deal. Next! Besides this guy sounds more like a scorer. Might be able to play him alongside a bigger pg like Exum

Quote:
The Jazz have been blessed with several great writers to cover the team. I didn’t read a ton of Goon’s work, but he seemed to be a solid writer with plenty of good stories and should have plenty of work with LeBron’s move to LA. And, of course, I’m happy for Andy, who’s been great for the Jazz community.

Not really that great.

Rudy!!!

Maybe we can talk more about how great Ricky and Snyder are though?

Georges Niang agreed to a three-year, $5 million deal with the Utah Jazz on Friday to end his restricted free agency, according to a Deseret News source. The source also confirmed that the first year of the deal is guaranteed, with trigger dates each year where the figures can guarantee. – via Deseret News

That's a pretty good contract

Niang showed some good improvement during his time with the stars, but his summer league performances this year is what forced the Jazz to get him on the roster full time. He possesses the type of talent that fits well with Quin Snyder’s style. While with the Stars, he shot over 52% (!) from 3 on nearly 5 attempts per game and has shown good passing instincts as well. To top it off, his defensive play and rotations looked pretty good in summer league as well.

They gave him a qualifying offer before summer league so I'd say they were already looking to keep him

It’s unfortunate to say it, but the fact of the matter is that Dante Exum‘s career has been a disappointment thus far. On the bright side, his struggles haven’t exactly been his fault. Instead, he’s been plagued with injuries that have prevented him from playing as well as he would have liked.

He has sucked. Quit blaming it all on injuries

Quote:
And if you ask me, that’s absolutely a reason for excitement. This team was one of the most entertaining to watch in the league due largely to their incredible chemistry and cohesion. The team simply liked one another and it showed in nearly every aspect of their play. The passion and excitement they had to hit the court with one another was fun to watch, easy to cheer for and made them perform extremely well.

Bringing back the same team that isn't good enough is exciting?
