Withey also said he'd love to be here, but understand the business side of things. I think his situation depends on who UTA drafts.

He's gone regardless. The fact that he was in street clothes instead of Lyles already tells you that. They think he's guilty already and he doesn't shoot 3's

Dante Exum was pretty clear about point guard being his preferred position.

prove you can play at all first!

I agree. Seemed a bit frustrated. You can tell he has motivation to make a jump next season.

I would hope so! He could be playing in the Australian league if he doesn't!

Dante Exum doesn't plan on playing Summer League. Wants to work on midrange game this summer - floater and pull-up.

You should play in summer league along with Lyles. Work on your finish? 3? D without your hands?

You like back-up center? 50% or 100%?

Assuming both are on the Jazz roster next season, who do you think should eb the starting shooting guard?
Rodney Hood
Joe Ingles
Alec Burks

Exum ideally

too bad he can't teach you length. You might play over lesser players!

Could Joel Bolomboy develop into a solid back-up center as early as next season? He's guaranteed for 17-18.

He's too small for the 4 now. I'd say back-up PF and possibly starter once Favors is moved

Trey Lyles: "I think Gordon (Hayward) has a few incentives to stay here. I think we will see him back here next year for sure."

He eats with Hayward and Ingles so he may know something

So if being good is good enough, the Jazz should stand pat and keep as many players as they can. But if greatness is the goal, theyll need another star.

I don't think they necessarily need another star. They need more of a supporting cast for sure though

Quote:
Should they go back to making do with what they can get at point, or try to turn Dante Exum into the starter?

Definitely not Dante! He needs to start earning his way as does everyone else. Enough of giving to players who are undeserving just because

Quote:
The Jazz could become the third- or fourth-best team in the West by simply standing pat and getting healthy.


Or drop while others improve themselves.

Deron Williams? He'll be available as a free agent, and his playoff performance in Cleveland has shown he can help a team in the right role.

the right role is a back-up

Quote:
Hill, who played for a bargain salary of $8 million in 2016-17.

not necessarily a bargain on a per game basis.

Quote:
Hill clearly was worth the trade for the No. 12 pick in last June's draft.

not if they lose him
