Xiao Yao You is starting to rub some people the wrong way
Default Who's going to be in the D-League?

Jazz have 3 players eligible. Almond probably is the most NBA ready but he's in a long line for playing time. Jazz are thin up front but whoever isn't in the D-League of the 3 will probably be in a suit anyway so the two big guys would make the most sense I'd think.

I would bring Almond up for now. If there in an injury, we might need a big man, but that can be taken care of if it happens. I don't want to see Almond get too used to being a focal point of the offense. I think he knows the system now, if he is brought up it would be good to have him run sets with team and get used to hitting the occasional jumper.

Koufus and Fes can battle it out in the D-League. They should split the minutes evenly at center and give each a sporting chance to prove they can be insurance after next summer's negotiations (Milsap, Boozer, Okur, Collins). If either makes the team, they wouldn't get any development this year behind the others.

You mean in practice right? If everyones healthy one of the 3 will be in a suit and tie at the games.

I'd think they'd be able to play together some. Koufos plays on the perimeter right? Did they play together in the summer league?

Yup, that's what I had in mind.

Yeah, Koufos does play high post. You're right, they were on the floor together a lot in the RMR. I hope Lyde is back, the three of them can play a 3 man rotation for the Flash. I love Lyde!
