    SIAP - Just a disgusting piece of journalism. Hit piece in the SF Chronicle.

    Jazz need to realize this is the best shot at winning a title

    I'd take Redick in a flipping heartbeat, the guy can still stroke it, but I question the org's ability to take on that contract given the tax implications. Would still prefer a big defensive wing. Preferably one who can shoot - but a big wing defender who can shoot is going to be very expensive...

    Wing Defender in the Buyout/Trade Market?

    Looking towards the playoffs - the one thing I think we'd need to add would be another capable, big-body defender who can match up with who we know who stands between us and and a title. Royce is solid but can't guard two guys at once and can't guard for 48 minutes. Someone who can play 8-10...

    Jazz W, 197-49. But, Lakers hold Ingles to only 55 points on 14/18 from 3.

    Bumpity bump bump. Not too excited about who we'll be drafting at #30 (:)). But at the top of the draft, Evan Mobley is being seriously slept on at #1.USC is completely under the radar but they are dominating and he's the reason why. High ceiling, high floor, perfect modern day NBA big.

    People who say we "don't have a superstar" criminally underrate Rudy Gobert.

    PG and Kawhi out would be a boon. LFG.

    Stephen A. isn't sold on the Jazz being a real threat to the Lakers | First Take

    I'm not sold on Stephen A being a legit journalist or analyst. Guy's a total hack. His opinions are baseless hot takes based on 1-2 little nuggets that he Googles before going on-air and it takes him 15 minutes to say what others can say in 15 seconds. That said, I'm not sold on the Jazz as...

    Anthony Davis

    Even if AD misses a moderate stretch (2-3 weeks), it is a good window for us. Hopefully that leads to 2-3 more L's for the Lakers and gives us a small bump in terms of capturing the #1 seed. Not playing the Lakers or Clippers until the WCF would be massive. The Nuggets at 6 or 7 (i.e., the...

    Point God Donovan Mitchell

    Are we really better with DM at PG? Serious/not a snarky question, I'd be curious to know what the analytics say. I know DMs stats at PG are excellent but I'd be curious to see our team ORTG with Mike at PG and Donovan off the ball vs. Donovan at PG and Mike not in the lineup. We could...

    He’s obviously out of our draft range, but just a word on Evan Mobley: Him slipping to the #4-5 range makes no sense to me. He is phenomenal. 7 footers with that athleticism and skill set come around about once a decade. Quintessential modern day big who can score from all 3 levels and switch...

    Are the Jazz going to trade Rudy?

    I don't expect we trade him, but am not 100% confident it's off the table. I'll be very curious to see how his extension talks play out. Have any supermax-eligible players not been offered the supermax by their current teams? I hope Rudy feels at home with the Jazz, but he's a very proud guy. I...

    All in on Jalen Suggs. Holy smokes. Would be perfect next to Donovan.

    Jazz "considering" Conley for Blake.

    Eh - I'd consider it. Not sure I love it, though. Option #1 for Conley is to get good, long-term pieces. But I'm bearish on his value in the trade market. He's 33 years old and coming off a down year, and will be a 34 year old UFA in 2021. I don't see teams parting with very much to get him at...

    Is Rudy gone?

    Doubt it. He's a late first-rounder. I really do buy into the idea that Udoka is intended to provide a similar 10-12 minutes of rim protection when Rudy's not on the floor.
