    Do you still want to see Big Al shipped?

    I for one, wouldn't mind seeing us sign him for a 3-4 year extension. Given the fact that he doesn't make as much as he is currently getting paid. He has continued to improve every year since coming over. IMO, he is no longer a black hole. His defense is still lacking, but, Favors/Kanter playing aside him could mask his inabilities/ lack of caring. I just want to see how everyone feels about keeping him. Remember as you vote, the Jazz will never get a big free agent to come here.

    Yes I want to see him gone.

    But reality is Greg would rather keep him to sell tickets.

    I want to se us become a more divers offense, and that's not happening with Al. Kanter and Favors are the future, and that's not happening with Al staying. I want to see Hayward develop into the player the jazz lean on to set up the offense, but that's not happening with Al hear. I want the jazz to take the next step, and become a contender, that's not happening with Al anchoring the team.

    I'm not one of those posters that can't ever give credit to the big guy, but Al resigning to me does more harm then good for the future of this team.

    I'd rather keep Al than Sap. But I'd really rather have both of them gone if they make more than 8-9 M a year. Which they both will. So gone it is.

    Al OR Sap should be gone to let Favors start. I say Al should go, because I'm more attached to Sap, since he's been here so long. But then, I really want Favors as PF preferably, not C. Since Paul plays the 4, I guess that way it makes more sense to ship him off to make room instead of Al. But I still like Sap better and Al's defense stinks way worse.

    I think I'm getting whiplash. :P Bottom line though is that Favors needs 30+mpg. They need to make this happen because if he's unhappy and we lose him, we're in trouble.

    I was thinking about this the other night and I honestly couldn't think of a single scenario in which I'd like to keep Al for any amount of money. As long as he is on the roster either Favors, Kanter, or possibly both will always be underdeveloped. At least keeping Paul has other options like occasionally having him at the 3 or having him off the bench. Something Al can't do in either instance.

    Id rather keep Sap than big Al as he compliments Favors and Kanter more than Big Al. However I think Sap is gone no matter what and Big Al is willing to stay.

    I haven`t done the numbers myself, but doesn`t Paul`s numbers look really bad when he`s playing without Al on the floor?

    In theory, Favors` defence and Al`s offence should compliment each other perfectly. It would also give room for Enes to be the primary back up for both positions, giving him a lot of playing time.
