    Jazz vs. Knicks

    Need a game thread. It’s already halfway through the first quarter. Utah was up 19-12 when I checked in.

    Under the radar starter. . .

    I read an article the other day about the upside of Royce O’Neale. It got me thinking about how likely (or not) it was that he could develop into a legitimate NBA starter. I decided to compare him to other players who had a similar path in the NBA and a comparable skill set. Since they were...

    What are some options for filling the last roster spot?

    Assuming that Derrick Rose gets bought out or released. . . Who would the Jazz target to fill that last roster spot? A.) Pick up a guy off a buyout or who is currently a free agent. B.) Promote a G-League or 2way player? What options are out there?

    Free Agents Still Available

    Anybody worth going after? The one name that jumps out at me is Ersan Ilyasova. Wouldn't mind Bogut behind Rudy for a year either. Maybe make an offer to Jonathan Simmons? Luke Mbah a Moute? Tony Allen? • C: Dewayne Dedmond (27) San Antonio Spurs • SG: Jonathan Simmons (27) San Antonio Spurs...

    Go ahead, get your fix.

    I was bored and had some time on my hands. Barring something unexpected, the roster is more or less set. Jazz are getting a lot of positive press right now and some hype to go with it. And, while they still haven't earned a damn thing, there's a lot of reasons to be excited and optimistic...

    Leveling the playing field?

    With the draft just a day away, I was looking at all the trade rumors and seeing the resources that the "big market" teams have at their disposal. It made me wonder what "small market" teams, like the Jazz, can do to help even things up. It's been pretty well established that the Jazz have...

    So. . . it's summer again, and we need something to pass the time. Cy has been running a consensus mock draft, but I'd like to do a full 2 round mock draft where each poster takes on one team and we pick in their stead.

    2nd Round Pick Success Rate

    Considering the number of picks that the Jazz have coming up, I decided to take a look at successful 2nd round picks and try to get an idea of what factors the Jazz should be looking for. I wanted to see if the picks they have this year (#42 & #54) are worth using, or if they should trade up. I...

    Swing For The Fences

    Over the past 5 years, Deron Williams, James Harden, Dwight Howard and Kevin Love have all been traded for blockbuster packages. Multiple picks and players. Bynum, Iguadola, Bogut, Ellis and other high quality players have been traded as well. The Jazz currently have four guys that I think...
