Another: continuing to start Sapperson with their league-leading bad interior D, when a stud defender like Favors is available. (But, but, but, those guys helped the Jazz outscore the Spurs in the 3q the other night donchya know (after allowing a 19 point lead)).
And it is silly for some people here to say that Kanter is 100X better then Koufos when it is absolutely not true. He may have better potential but at this point of their career Kosta is better and it is not even arguable. Stats, head to head meetings, whatever you look at - so far everything supports that.

Koufos is a borderline starter (and definitely a rotation big), but he's making only $3mm per over the next 3 seasons (the 3rd season is only guaranteed for $500k). That's an absolute steal for Denver.
And getting a player with a good NBA body, has a good head on his shoulders, works hard, and has shown touch at the, what, 22nd pick in a draft is a steal, too (even if Batum and Ibaka were bigger steals).
I would love to know the negotiating point where Koufos came up and who asserted that he should go to Minnesota. I thought it was dumb then, and it looks a lot dumber now (not taking into consideration the existing logjam). Also, remember how shallow the big rotation was after the Jazz got Jefferson and before they traded D Will. It's no coincidence that Francisco Elson and Kyrylo Fesenko haven't been able to really find any teams.
