    For the Jazz almost exclusively. Only time he played any 3 was when Joe Johnson was still getting minutes

    A salty opinionated caustic douche who'd suck for big periods of time.

    We traded up in the draft for Mitchell and bought a pick from Denver for Gobert. Those are our two best players so it gets me to thinking: why not try and amass draft picks? I mean our best free agent signings were Okur and Boozer and both were over a decade ago. Straight across trades of active NBA players will likely enhance fit, but ripping someone off is harder to do. But with draft picks, there is always the chance of getting a Malone or Mitchell at 13, a Stockton at 16, or a Gobert at 27.

    Parker and Lopez for Rubio and Favors.

    Hurts us a little now but should improve us going forward.

    They get Rubio as its rumored they like him.

    We get a 5 to back up Gobert though Udoh may be better.

    We get a legit second scorer we sorely need.

    Could make a lot of sense. Except we’d be thin at pg.

    Maybe Parker-Dunn for Favors-Rubio and a 1st.

    I like the idea of trying to get Parker, but I'd rather do it after they buy him out and we can get a second year team option... so we have some upside if he plays well.

    We could work with Chicago on a bigger buyout price and use our MLE to help cover the difference in buyout price... those bastards love saving money and Jabari could be made financially whole.

    So our options are:

    1. Go get somebody like Conley, Mirotic, etc. using our assets.

    2. Trade expiring(s) for a bad contract and receive an asset (player or pick) to do so

    3. Do something very minor

    4. Do nothing

    I say go #2. Based on the Dallas trade, we should be looking at a team with an asset who wants to dump contracts. Maybe that's where we get ahead. Using a pick on Conley scares me.

    I like the current roster.
    Its best to maintain FA flexibility.
    Better deals will be available at draft time.
    We have to see what this group can do when healthy.

    -just prepping myself.

    We had a losing record to start the year and we were 100% healthy. And can't blame the schedule because the playoffs will be harder than what we faced earlier in the year.

    This is a good point. But it is hard to just amass picks. Teams value them highly (sometimes too highly). And even though we have drafted well recently there is no guarantee we'd have the same success in the future. Finding guys like Rudy and Donovan where we found them in the draft is rare. Free agency, trade, draft, they all hold risk/reward

    Gobert missing as an All Star is just another reason to TRADE. Free agents have so many more reasons not to come here than to come here. Guys who get traded here fall in love with it.

    Anybody waiting for cap space magic is just uneducated about how this all works.

    Or a Burke, or Lyles, or ever-injured Exum. The draft has been a crapshoot with Lindsey. He's been <50% with finding a starter quality player, even with lottery picks. And he's been a failure finding depth in the 2nd round, despite working out close to 100 players each summer.

    But now if the Jazzes do anything I will be pleasantly suprised. Wheras many of you are setting yourself up for disappointment . One of the keys to a good life is managing expectations.
