Alec has an amazing attitude. Alwys smiling. Can't be happy with not playing. He's too good to be at the end of an NBA bench in his prime especially after not being healthy for so long

Burks said “we’ll see” in relation to his future. “Hopefully it keeps going and we’ll see what happens."

Ingles said Mitchell still “has got a ton more” he can do. “He’s going to come back bigger and better, there’s no doubt in my mind."

Don't think there is much doubt. Injuries are the only things that can slow down his march to greatness

I hope you don't! You need shooters besides you no matter how likable everyone is

When do they start looking at draft prospects? Other teams already are. Need a 4 with the top pick for sure. Then probably a wing.

Joe Ingles doesn't see a huge gap between the Utah Jazz and the top-tier teams of the Western Conference. "I think we've showed all year at different points that we've played with the best and beaten the best," Ingles said.

I don't think so either. Standing pat isn't the answer though. Need shooters!!!!!!!!

We just need to keep a microphone in front of Joe Ingles. He covered Hayward and Lyles. Next up, Kanter, Derek Fisher and Rony Seikaly!

Kanter sure. He was on the team then. You forgot Harper

Gobert said he needs to continue to get stronger to “dominate even more.” Believes he can improve his shot even more and be an offensive weapon and “be more trouble when I have the ball in my hands."

Need to establish the mid range shot. He looked good shooting it. His hook as well. Needs confidence. Needs to shoot it a lot in the regular season. Him and Mitchell need to spend as much time as possible running pick and roll together though. That should be the bread and butter

Udoh said he needs to work on his ability to score to stay on an NBA roster — expand his range.

Given that the nucleus is youth-laden with the 25-year-old Gobert and the 21-year-old Mitchell, this team is in a three-year evaluation period. Three years from now, with the improvement of the emerging young stars along with the infusion of new talent, internal and external expectations should — and will — increase substantially.

As they should have already learned with Stockton/Malone and even with Hayward you strike when the iron is hot. With shooters they could be in the mix next year. Why wait?
