    You realize KOC turned down Sam Presti's offer for James Harden, right? What do you think Presti asked for? Why did KOC decline if Favors and Kanter are not the future of the team?

    Bottom line is the Jazz are not looking to make a serious run with Jefferson and Millsap, and are trying to bring Favors and Kanter along at a comfortable level while attempting to get something back for their two expiring bigs. CoTy has to play winning ball & cannot destroy the market value of these two by benching them. Not only would that destroy the locker room and winning culture, but it would send a message to the market that these guys can be had easier than Raja Bell.

    It's a delicate situation that O'Connor and Corbin are handling beautifully. One way or another, next season will look much different.
    Solid post. The best rebuttal I have heard from anyone on this issue. Good work Frank.
    Cy is a Baker, he doesn't work fast food. Don't make that mistake, he doesn't like it.

    You poor thang.

    CoTy & KOC have a plan that's coming along nicely.
    What value does an expiring big like Sap or Al have?

    What trades make sense. Can you come up with a few scenarios that make sense for the other team and our team?

    I don't see how either of them have any value. The Jazz waited to long and teams will just wait in the offseason instead of giving up draft picks or young players for them.

    The only teams that might want Al or Paul are teams over the cap and those teams probably have crap to offer us.

    I'm really curious if you have some trades in mind. I'd like to see them.

    Maybe rebuttal isn't the right word. The right word is explanation.

    Was this already discussed somewhere (details on what Presti wanted) and Jazz declining? Can you link it?

    KOC has a great plan, but it's too bad Corbin isn't following it...

    They absolutely have value do you know how many teams are looking for bigs who can score, whether it be in the starting lineup or off the bench? Especially Eastern conference teams, cause most of them are very weak in their frontcourts.

    Well, we better get Beasley, Flynn, Jennings, Tyreke, Jianlian, Lopez. With all those minutes those guys played, they are stars!

    It doesn't work that way. Favors was one of the rawest offensive players to enter the NBA in the last 5 or so years.
    Enes Kanter didn't play a single game in college.
    Alec Burks was the scoring leader for a sub-par school, and came in with questionable range and defense.
    Gordon Hayward, good at everything, master of nothing.

    Are those things you said about LeBron, CP3, Durant, Blake, or any other star coming into the league?

    Stars don't have question marks.
    Even kobe was thought to be too young and cocky (chucker). durant, too skinny.... blake could only dunk and thats it.
    All of thier coaches gave them major minutes anyway.
    Kevin love had question marks, paul pierce did too, derrick rose and westbrook supposedly couldn't shoot good enough.
    Alot of stars had question marks, but all of thier coaches decided to give them major minutes anyway.

    Yes, Favors was raw when he came out of college a few years ago. It's great that he's come so far. His FT shooting has even improved.
    He attacks the rim, draws fouls, and is starting to score on low post moves. The fact is he scores points, and puts up good stats in limited minutes.
    It's time to expand those opportunities.

    Lunatic and his band of stay the course/question nothing are trying to say we are comparing him to Lebron, Durant, etc. Favors is not in their league.
    I think most people are saying we are better with him on the floor, and has a higher ceiling than Sap/Big Al.

    No. I'm in the stay patient, this will all work it self out by the trade deadline, quit bitching because its annoying group.
    You can also pen me in on the don't blow everything up because **** the team chemistry, burn bridges, and ruin our players trust in the coach petition.

    I think it's common knowledge that Favors has a higher ceiling than Millsap, and that Kanter has a higher ceiling than Jefferson. No need to whine about getting rid of them after every game though. By the end of the season neither will be here.
