    I posted a thread on realgm on how I see the offseason going.

    Could the Jazz punt on this summer's free agency?

    I was kind of upset when we traded for Korver, sacrificing some of our cap space in the summer. And now I am reading that the Jazz have interest in Jabari Parker. So, I put 2 and 2 together and think, maybe the Jazz have decided that there is too much competition in this coming summer's free...

    Should Jazz claim Melo?

    Melo is making 2.4 mil this season. If Houston cuts him it has been rumored that Philly will claim him off waivers. And why not take the risk for that few dollars? But, Utah would be ahead of Philly in the waiver claim process as it stands today. Why not cut Tyler Cavanaugh and claim Melo...

    No CP3, No AD, No Butler, Teague

    Any interest in Dragan Bender next summer?

    By my eye he looks like a guy that would benefit from being a system player. He just seemed lost in Phoenix's offense to me. Almost excluded. But, I think he could do well in Utah. He's got great size for a PF and was hitting 36 percent of his 3s last year on a health number of attempts...

    How long til we can trust Jae Crowder?

    I bought a used car a while back. Took me TWO trips to California until I was comfortable that it wasn't going to be a lemon and money pit. How many games til we are comfortable with Jae and what he's bringing to the Jazz night in and night out? I'm going to say 20 games into NEXT season...

    Process vs. Results and the best nickname ever.

    There are two ways to judge a team in my mind. Process or Results. When teams get graded for an offseason it usually comes down to the grader favoring one over the other. Jazz get high marks this offseason if you only look at process. Terrible marks if you only look at results. One would...

    how to find a previous post?

    There was a thread where we graded the Jazz draft. I wanted to go back and comment but I can't find it. I went back 14 pages and didn't see it. I can't figure out how to see my own posts using the forum (acutally, I could see like 5 or 6 of my old posts, then they seemed to stop) I even...

    I usually have a good idea how the Jazz offseason will play out...

    Not so much this summer. Right now I have zero idea what is going on in Dennis Lindsay's mind. I'm pretty sure resigning Hayward is job #1. But, after that ???? I can't even pick a direction. I don't know what kind of player we'll target in trades, draft, free agency. I'm not even...

    ehhhhhhh.... Gamethread?

    I'm looking for a gamethread for tonight's game, but, I'm not seeing it. Am I blind or is there just not enough interest in the Jazz to have a gamethread for game #2 of the playoffs??

    My Jazz salary projections.

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/14Ql1-MPBawvhGyUxh7IyRebAFK_xrnliUYcRq3DnUQg/edit?usp=sharing I'm trying to wrap my head around what the Jazz future salary situation is going to be. So, I created this spreadsheet. I've made a ton of assumptions on who will be staying and how much...

    I'll go first. Being a Jazz fan this year is like... Having a hot girlfriend who is always on the rag.

    My thoughts =/= David Locke's thoughts

    I was listening to his podcast today and Locke was gushing over the Jazz. Talking about how good the offense and defense looked vs. Atlanta. Now, don't get me wrong, I liked winning as much as anyone, but, my impression of the Jazz play couldn't be more different than Locke, and I wanted to...

    Sneak peek at my Jazz offseason preview

    It's not a finished product as I'm collaborating with someone this year and they haven't had a chance to look at it yet, but, I thought I'd throw it out there for some Jazz fans to hate on. Hate away!

    What does Gobert need to do to get some run this year?

    I thought Gobert looked very solid last year in summer league. And this year is no different. In fact, in the games I've watched he's been a game changer when he's on the floor. The moment he steps off you start counting the minutes until he returns. But, he barely got off the bench last...

    Just thought I'd warn you.

    It seems every time a guy like Hayward signs a big offer sheet as a free agent, the next day they come out and say something stupid that riles up the home team. Personally, I think it's part of the contract negotiations. "We'll give you a max offer, but, you've got to do your part. You've got...

    If you could make sure that -one- player didn't get drafted by the Jazz @#5

    which guy would you pick?

    I wouldn't mind Dantoni as coach

    I'm serious. With our young legs and high altitude home court I think we'd benefit from an uptempo offense. Wouldn't be the best choice for playoff success, but, at this point I'd take some entertaining ball and 50 wins with a first round exit. I know most of you will violently disagree...
