Default What to do with Mehmet Okur when he returns?

How should the Jazz handle having Okur, Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson together?

Millsap back to bench? Or Okur moved to it?

At this point I would just leave Okur at the bench, and keep Jefferson and Millsap, it would help in the sense that they get a good routine, and it could help the Jazz's bench with Okur.

Ideally they trade Okur and Jefferson and get a real center to play next to Millsap but I'm sure that isn't happening so either you trade the best of the 3 Millsap for help elsewhere or you bring Okur off the bench where he belongs and hope he becomes tradeable somehow.

Bench him. Can't really bench Millsap the way he's been playing.

I say bench him too. Trade him if you can, although that probably won't be doable until next year.

I couldn't really see acquiring Jefferson or hanging onto Boozer the way Millsap played two years ago but they did. It's not like Millsap just suddenly started playing like this. He did it two years ago. He'll be the one to go to the bench eventually I'd think rather that's the right move or not.

Don't think they'd have a problem trading him. He's got one of the best contracts in the league now that he's initial down payment has been paid.

Millsap is guaranteed a starting spot after roasting the Miami Heat tonight.

Memo can really help out bench out too with his shooting.

You forget this is the team that thinks Fessenko is a player and Koufos isn't. LOL!

From what I read on the Yahoo recap

Quote:
Does Millsap have the green light?

“He does now,” Utah coach Jerry Sloan said.

Fes has really come along.

Two big plays in Orlando, late in the game, and I think he even hit one of his free throws in Miami late in the game.

2 rbds in 9 minutes a game is a joke(very Collins like) along with the half a turnover a game and 17%!!! FT shooting. His rebound average went down even furthur though his TO rate and FT% went up against Orlando.

Good to see Koufos getting some time in Minnesota.
