Default 2018 off-season

Let's see if Lindsey and company can do what needs to be done to be able to compete for title. They need shooters around Mitchell, Gobert and Ingles. Anything else is a failure as far as I'm concerned

You certainly aren't loved. Might as well let you go somewhere you can be appreciated

“We hope to retain [Exum]...we don’t think he is injury-prone. Things have happened. When he played in the regular season, he played well.” Lindsey, who said Dante played vs OKC and HOU with hamstring issues.

He's certainly injury prone. The price for him is what matters. I'm open to him coming back. He continues to show improvement but he's along ways from being a guy that I'd want to be counting on for 9-10 million a year.

DL said the end goal isn’t to get older to have more veteran experience in the playoff, but to be the last one standing. Experience, toughness, shooting embody the Jazz system and they’ll continue to advance with that.

You have one shooter that actually plays!

He added that players like Ricky Rubio deserves a good team, as does every other player on the roster.

Never have a great team with Ricky playing a major role

DL says they’re learned the limits of Ricky Rubio and feel like they can utilize him better moving forward.

Which should mean bench or trade

With the Utah Jazz season coming to a close on Tuesday, Derrick Favors’ free agency is the biggest question looming this summer.

Improving the roster is the biggest question and saying thank you and good bye to Favors is one of the keys to that

Quote:
With that being the case, you could say that Utah doesn’t have too many tough decisions to make this offseason, but there are a couple that certainly stand out. The first is with restricted free agent Dante Exum, who the Jazz can match any offer to retain him if they see fit to do so. The bigger question, though, lies with unrestricted free agent Derrick Favors.

Exum is the bigger question. How much do you pay a guy that has shown some improvement but can't stay on the court and yet to prove he is more than just a defensive player.

A bit too free. They need to reign in Crowder next year. Better shots.

"I think the organization put a group of guys in a perfect position...they picked every single guy to be here not because of the skillset they have on the court, but the way we are as a person."

Which is nice but it has never won a title

So why aren't people talking badly about him not playing like they have with Hill?

Rubio said the mentality of the Jazz organization fits his personality really well.

I'm sure. No other team would let you play like that as a starter

Sometimes? It's pretty much all the time!

Rubio said his confidence this year has come from the Jazz system: we pass from a good shot to a better shot to an excellent shot.

You pass from an open shot to a more open shot, Open Ingles is excellent from anywhere. Wide open Ricky from anywhere not so excellent.

Rubio said “it means a lot” that the Jazz front office and coaches want him here.

If it's in a major role it's sad. They aren't going to beat the best teams with him playing a major role.
