Lots of good stuff. Gordon Hayward, Team Chemistry, Coach Corbin, the Lakers, and then.....making trades.
****SKIP TO THE END TO HEAR TRADE TALK****
Radio Guys say, "Everyone we talk to says that the Jazz area going to make a trade, like it has already happened" Is a deal already done?
KOC said that the 'experts' that the radio guys are talking with don't know what they are talking about. That the radio guys are probably being used by all the 'experts' to drum up talk and create fan support for a trade that would lessen the Jazz's bargaining position. KOC has lost deals because the media leaked them.
Greg miller approached him with a 'rumour' and asked are you really doing this? KOC responded: "Should I" and then explained to Greg that it was the first time he was hearing about it.
1280: Do you feel pressure to do a deal?
KOC: I feel pressure to do the right deal. And that might be no deal. We have turned over 14 players since 2010, so do I feel pressure to do a deal? What Happens next year and all that stuff? Ya, know what you don't do a deal for cosmetic reasons, and you don't do a deal that you get pressured into, and take back a player that is owed money and then regret it later.
1280:A lot of people want your job, they want to make the deals....
KOC: Again, why do you make a deal, because everyone thinks you should?
