Source: Warriors Believe Purchasing Draft Pick An Option

May 17, 2013 | Tim Kawakami/San Jose Mercury News

The Warriors believe they can purchase a first or second round pick in the 2013 NBA Draft.

Sell them back their pick? Not sure you want to help the competition though.

Sloan Could Rejoin Jazz As Consultant

May 18, 2013 7:43 PM EDT

Jerry Sloan could return to the Utah Jazz as a consultant, two years after he resigned as coach.

"If thereís something out there thatís right for both parties, we would welcome a relationship with Jerry," Jazz president Randy Rigby said. "The Utah Jazz have great love and respect for him."

Sloan wouldnít want to be seen as getting in the way of Tyrone Corbin.

"When we talked about getting him seats to the games, he was very sensitive about where they were located," Rigby said. "He didnít want to be too close to the floor. He did not want to portray to Tyrone that he was interfering. That speaks volumes about Jerry Sloan, that heís sensitive to something like that."

Only problem I would have with that is they might rehire him as the coach at some point. Sounds like he's been part of their braintrust at the cobine.

Also from that article:

Quote:
Speaking of Schroeder, he was the only player to have rumors of a promise being made to him. He had a hard time disguising his smile when probed about it, but refused to confirm. Schroeder is coming off of a brilliant performance at the 2013 Nike Hoops Summit. He stood out at the event that featured almost a dozen players who are projected to be future lottery picks. The Utah Jazz are slated to pick 14th and seem like the most logical team to promise Schroeder considering their need at point guard. However, donít be shocked if he doesnít last until then. A team outside of the top five made a promise to Dion Waiters at the combine last year, only to see the Cleveland Cavaliers fall in love with him upon further evaluation. The same could happen with Schroeder.

Bill Oram: GM Dennis Lindsey said Jazz are open about what they'll do in first round. "Open is a good thing," he said. Could pick, move up, move down. Twitter @tribjazz

Bill Oram: Lindsey said No. 21 can be a good player and he isn't sure there is enough separation from 14 caliber guy to higher picks to use 21. Twitter @tribjazz

Bill Oram: But, Lindsey said, "I think we can move up. I think we've already had a few loose conversations around that so there's some potential there" Twitter @tribjazz


Good to hear! Might not need to move up if they are lucky tomorrow.

Sounds like they'll have options. #21 could be attractive to a few teams if there's any sliders in the draft as well.

Enes Kanter's recovery from April shoulder surgery is ahead of schedule, his agent said Wednesday, but the Utah Jazz center may not be cleared to play until August.

That means Kanter will not participate in the Orlando Summer League July 7 through 12, although Kanter's agent, Max Ergul, said it was unlikely the Turkish big man would have played that week even if healthy.

Why wouldn't he have played?

Quote:
The second-year center underwent surgery on April 10 to repair a tear resulting from a dislocated left shoulder suffered against Phoenix two weeks earlier. Kanter, who turned 21 on Monday, is in his native Turkey this week visiting family, Ergul said.

The Jazz have not released a timeline on Kanter's recovery, but have monitored Kanter closely as he rehabs in Chicago. Ergul said head trainer Gary Briggs has made three trips to Chicago, and that Kanter met with team doctors and GM Dennis Lindsey last week when the contingent was in the Windy City for the NBA's predraft combine.

Ergul described the Jazz as "very happy and very satisfied with the medical staff."

In his second season after being drafted third overall by the Jazz in 2011, Kanter averaged 7.2 points and 4.3 rebounds in 70 games. He recorded career highs of 23 points and 22 rebounds March 1 in a start against Charlotte.
The Jazz will participate in the Orlando Pro Summer League from July 7 through 13.

Utah Jazz center Al Jefferson received 20 points in the voting formula. Jefferson received the ninth most points among players not selected to an All-NBA team, which are voted on by media members covering each.

Despite finishing eighth among centers, behind Tim Duncan, Marc Gasol, Dwight Howard, Brook Lopez, Joakim Noah, Chris Bosh and Al Horford, one media member gave Big Al a first-team vote.

That means Jefferson, who has never been an All-Star, had one more first-team vote than second-team selection Blake Griffin, third-teamers David Lee and Paul George, not to mention others including Noah and Stephen Curry.

Ron Boone strikes again?

On Thursday, Southerland's agent, Mark Bartelstein of Chicago-based Priority Sports, said James Southerland already had eight more visits with NBA teams scheduled. According to Bartelstein, Southerland will work out for the Minnesota Timberwolves, Houston Rockets, San Antonio Spurs, Los Angeles Clippers, Detroit Pistons, Indiana Pacers, Washington Wizards and Utah Jazz over the next few weeks. "He's visiting a bunch of teams,'' Bartelstein said. "He's going to be very, very busy.'' The Post-Standard

Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski reported Saturday night that Jazz assistant coach Jeff Hornacek is the "front-runner" to become the next head coach of the Phoenix Suns.

"Hornacek met with new Suns general manager Ryan McDonough and president Lon Babby in the past week in Phoenix," Wojnarowski wrote. "No offer has yet been extended to Hornacek, but the Suns' search process could be completed within the next week, league sources said."

Hornacek, who later went on to play for the Jazz, was a fan favorite during his time in Phoenix (1986-92), and was the team's most emotional loss in a trade that brought eventual MVP and Hall of Famer Charles Barkely to the Suns.

Hornacek had been linked to another former team's coaching vacancy. The Philadelphia 76rs have also reportedly been interested in the former shooting guard, but the Suns have quickly moved into the forefront for his services after hiring McDonough away from the Boston Celtics.

McDonough didn't mince words when citing the qualifications he sought in a new head coach.

"The most important thing to find in our head coach is someone who is a leader," he said. "We need someone who commands the respect of the players, commands the respect of the entire organization. We also need someone who is a teacher, who can help our young players develop and get better and maximize their individual talent.Ē

Hornacek appears to fit those qualities, having spent much of his time in Utah working with the Jazz's younger players, particularly their perimeter players.

The Suns boast several players in that category, including former North Carolina standout Kendall Marshall, who had a subpar rookie season.

Hornacek, a one-time All-Star and two-time 3-point shootout champion, still maintains a home in the Phoenix metropolitan area.

Good for Jeff! Bad for the Jazz. Who will replace him? One of the developmental coaches?

Jeff Hornacek agreed to terms with the Suns to become their new head coach and will sign the three-year contract by Monday morning. The Suns quickly acted after impressive interviews from Hornacek, the popular former Suns player who has been an assistant coach for Utah. He was interviewed in Charlotte for its head coaching job and Philadelphia also was interested in him. Cleveland was the first team to hire a coach this offseason when it brought back Mike Brown but the Suns were among six teams currently seeking a new coach with as many as three more expected to join that search.

It's official. Congrats Jeff. Tough situation with that owner though. Best medical staff anyway.

Big man coach finally to replace him? With Al out the door that could be even more important.

Hornacek now has a coaching staff to fill out. One guy that you can't help but wonder about is Karl Malone. Hornacek's Jazz teammate, the Hall of Famer, is constantly pitching himself as a coaching candidate, telling The Tribune over the weekend that he would be "interested" in replacing Hornacek on the Jazz bench.

Here's a thought: What about Malone joining Hornacek in Phoenix?
Hornacek laughed, then said: "Karl always wants to coach. I'll call him and see, but I can't ever imagine Karl - after two weeks he'll want to go fishing. It would be great."

What about Stockton. Sounded like maybe his kids were grown and he might be interested a while back. Dantley? A defensive coach like Mussleman?

There it is! I thought he should have been around during camp at the very least. This is really important with Jefferson and possibly Millsap gone. Let's get Stockton/Malone back together again!

Imagine how good Favors could be if he added Malones offensive game to his defensive abilities!

Malone didnít make any promises.

He called Favors and Kanter "two of the most talented bigs in the NBA right now" but added, "If someone is looking for Karl Malone to come in and wave a magic wand, that ainít happening. These kids will be as good as they want to be. Itís up to them."

Malone has already started working with Favors. Kanter will join the sessions "probably in about a month," after he fully recovers from shoulder surgery. According to Malone, he will approach his new role as mentor "the same way I played ó with everything Iíve got."

Malone is concerned that his part-time return to the Jazz might be misconstrued as something more.

"Iím not going to be sitting on the bench," he said, "and Iím not going to be taking over any meetings. Weíll take some small baby steps and go from there. Ö I donít want to be a distraction."

Asked about his future with the team, Malone laughed and said, "At any given time, if itís not working out for the Jazz or myself, weíll be men about it and go on our way."

Who knows?

Perhaps Malone will end up helping former teammate Jeff Hornacek, who was named the new head coach of the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday.

Asked if Malone might be part of his new staff, Hornack said, "Karl always wants to coach. Iíll call him and see, but I canít ever imagine Karl ó after two weeks heíll want to go fishing. It would be great.

"I know heís going to work with Derrick this summer. Ö Iím happy for Derrick if he gets that opportunity. If Karlís making the rounds working with guys, Iíd love to bring him here to work with a couple guys."

Sounds like maybe they got it done before Jeff did!
