Barnes and Leonard are SF's, and there's also Jordan Hamilton out of Texas.

Whatever we do I hope we don't waste a 1srt round pick on The Jimmer.

He would have been a nice pick-up.

Looks like he could be one of the guys available when they draft and I'm sure they'll look at a pg and hopefully a center though there doesn't seem to be many of them. Maybe a trade for a young center instead?

So much for bringing Raja back this year.

King hadn’t called O’Connor about Williams, but about Andrei Kirilenko, the Russian forward. They talked about the possibilities of a deal for Kirilenko’s expiring contract, but there was nothing there. Anything else, O’Connor asked? “What about Deron Williams?” King said with a I-know-that’s-silly laugh. O’Connor responded, well, if you’re serious about discussing him, we’re serious.

Amazing this guy is in charge.

Yeah, there's only a bunch of undersized PF's from what I've read.

I suppose we go after a back-up passer-first PG and a SG/SF wing guy.

Can't have too many of them.

Already have young guys in Hayward and Miles on the wing. I'd look for veteran help there especially with AK possibly gone and Bell hopefully dealt to Minny.

Need lots of help in the middle. Young and veteran. The 3 PF starting line-up just doesn't cut it surprising as it is.

From an O'Conner article.

Quote:
Utah is positioned to emerge as a stronger, more viable organization when the NBA frees itself from what many predict will be a lengthy, debilitating lockout next season. Everything from increased revenue sharing and a hard salary cap to a franchise-player tag — new CBA highlights in the eyes of many small-market teams — could aid Utah, while the Jazz should be able to lure in at least one high-priced free agent this summer.

Wishful thinking. Who is available that wants to play in Utah especially now with no superstar in place? Who knows what happens with the CBA.

Quote:
Utah also obtained the Nets’ 2011 first-round pick in the trade, which will at least be a lottery selection and potentially could result in a No. 1 choice.

Again wishful thinking. Maybe NJ makes a run now?

Quote:
the Jazz will likely have three lottery players on their roster when the 2011-12 campaign tips off.

Who knows? Could package assets for something else like they did with Deron and unfortunately Jefferson.

Quote:
“If you’re going to trade somebody like [Williams] you want younger players that are on their way up — in rookie contracts or draft picks that are high enough to help your team,” O’Connor said.

You mean if you're concerned about money.

Quote:
In addition, Utah is about to embark upon a journey that has been off limits during recent seasons — the team will have free money.
The Jazz’s 2010-11 roster is valued at $74 million, which places the franchise about $4 million above the luxury tax. Next season, though, the Jazz will enter the year with a roster worth $52 million.

Maybe? They could have the past two years too but they made the stupid moves with Okur and Jefferson not to mention not trading AK for Marion years ago.

Quote:
Thus, the small-market organization will likely enter this summer with three stars — Paul Millsap ($6.7 million), Al Jefferson ($14 million) and Harris ($9.3 million)

Stars is a stretch.

Quote:
the Jazz are drawing from the model of a highly successful, share-the-wealth Detroit Pistons franchise — one that advanced to six consecutive Eastern Conference Finals from 2002 to 2008.

In a weak conference.

Quote:
Millsap, Jefferson, Harris, Miles and Bell are Utah’s new core.

ugly!

What position should we draft for? I think we need a PG or a SG right now, Hayward is a SG/SF, but he's been a disappointment so far. Maybe we could have have Jimmer Fredette, but a lot of people are pointing him towards being a JJ Redick/Adam Morrison. The PG is pretty weak outside of Kyrie Irving, Fredette and Kemba Walker aren't really true PG's.

Either we need to draft a good PG/SG, or we need to pick someone up in free agency like Jamal Crawford or Jason Richardson.

We need a young center not named Fesenko and a young pg to develop behind Harris and Watson not named Price.

Quote:

A disappoinment that he hasn't been down in the D-League developing with Evans cuz the Jazz didn't sign a couple vets.

Quote:

Big difference between Redick and Morrison. Redick can play. Morrison is still waiting for a call. Can't see him getting it. He sucks.

Quote:

Why they're looking at a guy like Flynn probably.

Quote:

Why not both?

I'd look for vets on the wings and young guys at the point and in the middle. And of course any and all PF's you can lay your hands on. Can't have enough of them.

I really hope we get rid of Ronnie Price, he's been an energy guy for us, but I think his time is up with Utah, I also like Earl Watson, and I think we should consider keeping him, but I think we should try going after Sundiata Gaines again, he's making a big impact off the bench with the Nets in the past couple weeks and he's proved he can play.

If we don't get a SG/SF in the draft, we need to go after Jamal Crawford/Jason Richardson.

Should definitely look to keep Watson which leaves one spot open and they should be looking for their future starter not Gaines.

Would they sign? Mayo is a lot better option. He's obviously available.

Why not try getting Gaines? Ronnie Price has been garbage this year, Gaines has provided a great spark off the bench for the Nets and if you look at the +/-, he's been in the +5-+10 range every game. He's proving a lot of energy, and putting up good numbers in the assists column for a bench player, and he can shoot better then Watson.

Earl does a good job, but he isn't a great shooter, which he doesn't always need to do, but Sundiata has a lot of potential given minutes IMO.

Mayo might be a better option if we can get him for less money, but I'd rather get Jason Richardson or Jamal Crawford.

Also, hopefully we at least bring over Ante Tomic from Real Madrid next year and see what he can do for us, because Elson and Fesenko aren't cutting it and never will.

I like Gaines and prefer him to Price(always been garbage outside some defensive energy) and if they get a young guy that is ready to back-up Harris(Flynn?) than Gaines would be a nice 3rd guy.

Quote:

Mayo will be on the last year of his rookie contract so should come cheaper and a more realistic option. Unless the Jazz overpay for the other two they are unlikely to woo them to SLC. Not sure anyone in the draft is as good as Mayo? Miles isn't.

Quote:

He could be the young option in the middle but he didn't look worth the 5 million dollar buyout it will cost to bring him over.

Don't foget Okur. LMAO!
