What team do you envision making the first "big" trade this season? Chad Ford (1:12 PM): Everyone is looking at the Jazz right now. Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson could really help a veteran team. They are in the last year of their contracts. The Jazz want to clear more time for Derrick Favors. They have all the pieces to make a big deal with someone. Clearly the Lakers are looking in the mirror right now and trying to upgrade their athleticism/defense. ESPN.com

They had life-size posters of me in Utah with me behind bars. Before the situation with Jamaal Tinsley, I had never been in jail, and I'm from the projects! ESPN.com

Do you regret the Palace brawl? Stephen Jackson: No. Because the idea of Ron laying in the stands unconscious with all his teeth knocked out Ö no way. That whole arena was against and I didn't have it in my heart not to do anything. ESPN.com



So what happened with the strip club incident? I was there with Jamaal and some friends just for a night of fun and everything was cool. At the end of the night, I was in my car ready to leave. Then I seen Jamaal walk out of the club with some guy walking behind him with hands in his back pocket like he was fixing to shoot him. I hopped out of my car with my gun. I had a gun license at the time so it was all good. People think I was shooting up the place willy-nilly, but my gun was registered. I saw the guy with his hand in his pocket so I cocked my gun and put it in his face. I slapped him with the gun and we got to fighting before I realized they had planned to jump Jamaal. ESPN.com



Stephen Jackson: Iíve been in too many club fights not to know whatís going on. Iím not going to get hit from behind, stomped out and just be laying there. So all of a sudden all these cars pull up and I let off a couple warning shots, like telling everyone to back up. After that had happened, dude had jumped in his car and planned on trying to kill me. He hit me with his car. He drove straight into me and I flipped up in the air and landed face-first on the ground and knocked all my teeth out. I hopped right up and lit his whole car up. I didnít think twice because Iím figuring he tried to smoke Jamaal. ESPN.com

Some interesting stuff from Stephen Jackson.

Good win against the Lakers, especially with it being on the road.

Time to trade Jeffereson? I find myself jumping onto that train of thought more and more often, especially since the Jazz are looking like a .500, 7-8 seed playoff team again.

Kanter and Favors play are dictating it. Hard to watch them play and not want to see more of them.

Robinson Studying Millsap To Learn How To Be Effective Undersized Big

Dec 07, 2012 1:39 PM EST

Thomas Robinson has struggled to begin his rookie season, averaging 5.1 points and 3.8 rebounds per game.
"My rookie season's not going exactly as I envisioned it, but I'm just trying to work my way out of it," Robinson said. "Trying to get back to where I want to be."

Robinson has been shown film of other NBA players he can model his game after.


"Once I got to the league, I figured I don't need to watch tape of guys in the league Ö " Robinson said. "Now I realize I still need to; I still need to study other people. There's nothing wrong with studying film of guys (who are) better than you because there's a lot of bigs that are obviously better than me in this league."

The main player Robinson has studied is former second round pick Paul Millsap.


"He's an undersized big," Robinson said of Millsap. "He's got a lot of up-and-unders and can finish around the rim."

Utah Jazz: Jamaal Tinsley back to backup

Jazz notes Ľ Veteran point guard pushes the tempo when running the second unit.

By Bill Oram

Coach Tyrone Corbin has oscillated between backup point guards over several weeks, only saying that he will go with the player who gives the Jazz the best chance to win.
Well, by that metric alone, that answer aligns with Corbin’s choice in the last two games.

Jamaal Tinsley played 15 minutes in the Jazz’s wins against the Toronto Raptors and Los Angeles Lakers, while Earl Watson’s only appearance in either came late in the 32-point blowout over the Raptors. The two veterans present a quandary for Corbin and a logjam behind Mo Williams.

Tinsley is the Jazz’s oldest player (he turns 35 in February) and is on a nonguaranteed contract, meaning the Jazz technically could waive him to clear up any issue. However, when Corbin has gone away from Tinsley he consistently keeps going back to the slick and savvy vet.

"I just try to make sure we push the tempo," Tinsley said after the Jazz’s 117-110 win in Los Angeles on Sunday, "and try to get a good shot every time and manage the clock. Put the young guys in a situation where they can score the basketball."

During a recent five-game stretch in which Corbin benched Tinsley and played Watson in his place, the Jazz stumbled to a 2-3 mark. In four games started by Tinsley earlier when Williams was out with injuries, the Jazz were 3-1.

That’s not to hang any losses on Watson, who has played admirably in 10 games since returning from April knee surgery. He tallied eight assists in back-to-back games Nov. 28 and 30, which the Jazz split with New Orleans and Oklahoma City.

I been calling it since last training camp. See how Earl handles it this year. One of them needs to go. Nice to know they have some roster flexibility still with Jamal 's and Murphy's(I think) contracts.

Jason Terry wasn't even through his first year with the Dallas Mavericks when then-coach Don Nelson apparently wasn't pleased with his point guard skills. Nelson apparently was so disenchanted that he already had a deal done to ship Terry to the Utah Jazz. But owner Mark Cuban pulled the plug on the trade. "I remember having to tell Nellie that, 'No, weíre not trading him to Utah for Raul Lopez,' '' Cuban said. "Because Nellie told me the deal was done. "The point being that Jet went through some tough times when he first got here. And he got better and he grew with the team.'' Fort Worth Star-Telegram

The Los Angeles Lakers have paused their pursuit of Raja Bell with the point guard position being their short-term priority.


Bell is waiting to agree to a buyout with the Utah Jazz until he secures a guaranteed contract for the rest of the season.


The Chicago Bulls are offering Bell a non-guaranteed contract, according to sources.

The Utah Jazz are in the playoff hunt and have two starting big men in the last years of their deals in Millsap and Al Jefferson. Utah also has two talented young big men in Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter. Any big move by new general manager Dennis Lindsey, however, could disrupt Utah's playoff hopes. "I would think they would more likely trade Millsap over Jefferson because he is going to be harder to keep," one GM said. "He's made less money than Jefferson and he will go to the highest bidder."

It's a working assumption in front offices all over the league that the Jazz will trade Al Jefferson or Paul Millsap for a front-line point guard at some point during the next 10 weeks. For two reasons. 1. Jefferson and Millsap will be free agents in July, meaning that Utah risks losing both without compensation if they're still on the roster beyond Feb. 21. 2. Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter are the undeniable power players of the future in Utah, even though Jefferson is one of only five players this season averaging 17 and 10 -- along with Dwight Howard, David Lee, Kevin Love and Zach Randolph -- and despite Millsap's status as the most productive forward from the 2006 draft not named LaMarcus Aldridge.

Two: as of right now, the potential suitors aren't anywhere near making their
best offer. The likeliest trade partners: Chicago, Memphis, Minnesota,
Milwaukee, Utah. The Bulls were interested in Redick as a FA and Memphis
supposedly expressed recent interest. I haven't heard directly that Minnesota,
Milwaukee and Utah have talked to Orlando but Redick fits their systems and/or
fills a need. Sulia

I'd think Foye would have to go.

Waiving Howard creates an open roster spot for a small forward who can defend. The options include signing swingman James Anderson, cut just Thursday by San Antonio, or a veteran sitting at home such as Michael Redd, who has had knee problems of his own; pulling a wing player such as Chris Douglas-Roberts or Coby Karl, who played on the Wolves' summer league team, from the Development League; or trading for a player such as Raja Bell, who is sitting home in exile from Utah.

felt similar to when he tore a ligament in his thumb and required offseason
surgery in 2008
