    no to the discussion or no to the proposed trade or no to both?
    please be more clear.
    Sorry about that. Bad thing to say under the circumstances. Discussion is always welcome. I was saying no to that trade.

    I'm just about to jump aboard the fire Corbin bandwagon. What a doofus.

    Burks has been somewhat disappointing. As a prospect he was supposed to be a much better ball handler and facilitator than he has shown since he was buried on the bench this year because it's really important to play a pure rental in a year when the Jazz aren't contenders.

    Please do. I respect your opinion and will feel a slight bit less dirty.

    Has a Jazz rumor ever been true?
    Brewer to Memphis.

    Am I the only poster who actually believes Foye is better than Burks? Cuz he is. And Burks was one of my 3 pet prospects that year.

    Better 3 point shooter? Sure.
    Better ballhandler? Maybe

    Better at anything else? It's possible. I don't know. We have a head coach who refuses to play the #12 pick in the draft a year ago.

    Burks can't shoot midrange and doesn't pass or play within the, ah, "offense". Foye is better.

    If, IF Burks could reliably shoot off a curl and also had shown some nifty passing I'd still be all over him.

    Edit to add: That Murphy kid has a way sweeter shot than Burks. It's not like we will be gnashing our teeth missing him.

    We all know what Burks's strengths and weaknesses are. Those were well-documented back on draft day.

    My question is, if the Jazz knew about his strengths/weaknesses as well (which they did), and those weaknesses are the reason why Burks isn't getting any minutes, then why the hell did the Jazz draft him to begin with?

    Obviously I can't answer for KOC but personally I thought he was a lot more versatile with the ball. What I've seen is Dwane Wade without assists or a midrange J. So, free throws. Yay.

    Edit to clarify answer: Sometimes GMs are wrong same as posters.
