Jazz really needed Mo Pete. Almond and Brewer wont do anything that Mo is capable of for at least 2 more seasons.

defending the SG is where Utah really struggled last year.

as a Denver fan, im glad they didnt sign him. lol

Just be happy you root for a franchise that has no problems spending money and is constantly willing to do whatever it takes to make the team better.

Mine would rather play ostrich, duck its head in the sand, and just hope the SG problem goes away by itself.

Good signing for the Hornets. Bye bye Mo Pete the longest serving Raptor has left.

Bobby J can play backup SG, and so can Butler. If they would have signed Brown they would be much better off IMO.

Fisher leaves and gives us an opportunity to spend a little money and get that final piece that we need to be true contenders. Unfortunately, that opportunity will be squandered because Miller is a cheap ass who will never pay the luxury tax.



Sounds a lot like what people are saying all over local Jazz radio, and I don't agree. Giricek is as good as gone, Miles is probably gone (and even if he stays he will likely ride the bench for a LONG time for not playing in the RMR), Brewer can't shoot and Almond can't play D.

Typical Utah Jazz. Larry thinks he's spent enough money so the team decides to "see what they've got in the young guys." Fisher was a much bigger loss than a lot of people want to admit and I have very little faith that the Brewer/Almond combo is going to get us back to the WCF.

Well done, Jazz Front Office.

I hope that the jazz trade giri, cj, and/or collins for a decent back up PG. That's what i'm most worried about next season for the jazz. I don't think that dee brown is quite ready to be the second jazz pg option if deron either gets injured or gets in foul trouble. Last season it felt like the jazz had to "survive" while dee was on the floor until deron could come back into the game. That's what i'm going to miss most about fisher. I honestly do think that the jazz will be ok at the 2 position though. Just as long as giricek isn't starting, i think that brewer will help the jazz if he is given playing time. We don't need him to be a jump shooter. Just a cutting, slashing, type of player like harpring to get easy, open looks.

BTW. Wasn't it Mo Pete that was guarding kobe when he scored 81 points?

AGREED, not SIGNED.

It's not a done deal until the paperwork is signed. I shouldn't be, but I'm shocked nobody else has even noticed this little oversight. But then, when your entire goal is just to be the first person to post it, who needs facts?

between Julian Wright and Mo Pete, the hornets have had a decent offseason so far.

PG: Chris Paul - Bobby Jackson
SG: Morris Peterson - Desmond Mason
SF: Peja Stojakovic - Julian Wright - Rasual Butler
PF: David West - Brandon Bass - Cedric Simmons
C: Tyson Chandler - Hilton Armstrong

Its looking like a good mix of young talent with experience, cagey veterans, and a couple projects that could be important pieces in years to come.
You have so many decent elements on this team to be successful but I look at the team and see maybe more 35 win seasons in the future.

I feel sorry for David and Chris Paul.

Apparently winning isn't very high on Peterson's priority list.

It's going to be really hard seeing Mo Pete in a different uniform.

Good Luck Mo Pete.

Can't wait to see you back at the ACC so we can chant his name.
