Quote:
In his first full offseason he let near All-Star players Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap walk in free agency, getting nothing for them in return but cap space. Fans and media wondered why Lindsey didn’t trade one of his talented big men during the season. There were rumors around the 2013 trade deadline that Millsap could have been traded to the Clippers for Eric Bledsoe. It was probably just a rumor, but the criticism was fair.

Letting Millsap and Carroll go at bargain rates was a mistake.

Quote:
Looking back, they essentially traded Millsap and Jefferson for Exum, Hood and the Warriors' 2017 first-round pick. Not a bad deal for the Jazz, especially since they were going young.


I hope those guys will be as good as Paul and Demarre. Now they aren't.



Quote:
Many wanted Corbin fired and Hornacek promoted to head coach to keep him from leaving.
Once again, Lindsey stayed patient and let Corbin coach the next season, which wasn’t a good year and helped the Jazz in their draft position.
The Jazz weren't going to eat Corbin's contract. That was a no brainer if you've followed this franchise.

Quote:
The Spurs developed Tony Parker, a late first-round pick, and Manu Ginobili, a second-round pick, into potential hall of famers.

Manu was pretty much already developed.

Quote:
Gobert might be Lindsey’s golden apple and the steal of the 2013 Draft.


Might be?


Quote:
In the 2014 Draft, Lindsey did very well selecting both Exum and Hood. Many fans don’t give credit to Lindsey, saying these were easy picks that fell into his lap. Both are true but Lindsey didn’t overthink things as other general managers did.


Remains to be seen how good the Dante pick is. He's going to have to prove he can defend again and show he can do more at the other end as well. Continually calling him one of their best players is ridiculous.



Quote:
Seems like the Jazz got something OK out of a bad situation.
Didn't have to pay Kanter is what they got out of it.

Quote:
Pliess is still a mystery


Not really. He's shown he can play in the league. Needs to be dealt to someone else now.


Quote:
The only problem was that the four-year deal has an early opt-out option for Hayward after Year 3 and with the salary cap rising with the league’s new TV deal, he will surely exercise this option and either sign elsewhere or cost the Jazz a ton of money.

Might have had to give him that anyway. His agent probably wanted the opt out either way. Might be able to front load the next one to give them more money to pay others down the road.

Quote:
Pliess isn’t ready


He's ready just not as good a Withey.


Quote:
If the Jazz had signed a veteran wing player, he probably wouldn’t be OK playing behind Hayward, Burks and Hood.

Than he wouldn't have signed.

Quote:
The same issue could be had with the bigs. Signing a veteran would take time away from Lyles. With all these injuries the Jazz could have used a veteran or two to help ride the ship and win a few more games but that would cost Lyles and others precious time on the court.

Wrong way of thinking about things. The D-league is there for a reason.

Quote:
the Jazz look like a team with a bright future and he deserves to be praised for it.

Get back to me in 2 or 3 years when money gets tight.

Quote:
Who knows what the Jazz’s record would be midway through the season if the team’s immune system hadn’t become so susceptible to the injury bug?


Who knows what it would be if they were trying to win games. They are more than 7 million below the cap so it's hard to feel sorry for them.


Quote:
Not all has been lost despite the injury situation, which, by the way, has improved with Gobert’s return and the presumable impending comeback of Favors.


Been presuming that for a month.


Quote:
Neto has settled into an unexpected starting role and has shown flashes of brilliance on offense and a better-than-expected proficiency on defense — somewhat similar to Exum last year.


Better than expected if you hadn't seen him already.

Quote:
With Exum’s return, the Jazz will have their true starting point guard. They will score easier in transition and take attention off Hayward. Defensively, they’ll be even more obviously better.


Believe it when I see it. He might have a huge knee brace on and not be able to move like he did. They sucked in transition with him healthy. He's becoming a legend by not playing.

Quote:
The Jazz have no player that compares to Steph Curry, but let's say that the Jazz's equivalent is Hayward, in that he tends to carry the offense. Thus, in this scenario, Curry remains with the team.
Gobert is the Jazz not Hayward sorry.

Quote:
Utah hasn't had a lot of the long ball in their careers. Part of that was strategy. Part of that was convention. But the most reasonable reason is personnel.


Main reason was Sloan.


Quote:
Using LeBron as a guide this just solidifies my idea that it's not Gordon's job to be the primary ball handler, primary scorer, and ALSO the top three point shooter all in the same game.


It's not his job because he is a streaky shooter not a great shooter.




Quote:
On the Jazz roster right now I see another All-Around Wing player in Rodney Hood, I see a scoring specialist in Alec Burks (not a shooting specialist)


Burks has been more of an all-around player than Hood. Hood is a scorer almost exclusively.


Quote:
, and I see a number of "Three and D" aspirants in Chris Johnson and J.J. O'Brien.


Wouldn't O'Brien have to be able to shoot first?


Quote:
The other guy who is a wing player, but wasn't yet mentioned, is Joe Ingles. But I don't know how to classify him. We see him knocking down a lot of threes, important ones, but he's more than just a three point shooter. He's also somehow more than just an All-Around wing player also. He defies classification


He's one of their main ball handlers and a spot up shooter mostly.

Utah will likely be without Derrick Favors once again, due to back spasms

But he was working on his post moves with assistant Tony Lang, and has been in better spirits this week, especially since he traveled with the team.

I think it was just the one short road trip he didn't go on.
