However I'd rather just let Al expire then taking Reddick and Jameer, who I want no part of and think Burks will be better then Reddick, but not if we get Reddick, because that leaves little time for Burks to develop. Let's find some smart trades people!
Here is another one for the Orlando theory:
Al for Jameer and Reddick. Or, Al for Jameer, Davis and their first round pick with some sort of protection.
Al has his faults, but to act like Kanter, a guy who can't get any minutes, fouls at an incredibly high rate, is very raw offensively, but has potential is crazy.
I dislike Al as much as the next guy, but he isn't as bad as everyone says he is. If we didn't have him this year, we probably aren't in the playoff race. Not that that is a bad thing, but there is a reason why Al will get a max deal this summer, and it isn't because he sucks.
Amazing that in spite of this awful weekend we lost basically no ground. Portland, LA and Houston all lost today. Houston to Sacramento, nonetheless (though their game was a lot closer).
Unfortunately this may have the adverse affect of providing incentive for our FO to remain complacent.

Latest word on Utah Jazz and who they'll keep vs. deal between Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap: Jefferson is the like
-liest to stay right now, according to several opposing team executives. Consensus is the Jazz can't afford to keep both with Gordon Hayward soon to be eligible for an extension and the belief that Hayward is in the team's long-term plans.
Amazing that these hacks can regurgitate common knowledge and act as if it is some sort of journalism or "inside scoop"according to several opposing team executives. Consensus is the Jazz can't afford to keep both with Gordon Hayward soon to be eligible for an extension and the belief that Hayward is in the team's long-term plans.
