To me the case against GG is that we already have Lauri. GG upside is probably scoring in a lot of the same ways as Lauri. So if you are looking at it from Danny's perspective does he want to develop a guy who has a reputation for being immature when he is somewhat redundant to your current star? Or would he rather use the picks to draft stars who could be primary ballhandlers or more "stars in their role" type players?
(And no, I'm not off GG Island, but I can see why Utah might not be enthralled)
I agree with this. Lauri is bigger, a better shooter, more forceful going to the rim and already developed. Whereas someone like Jarace Walker, who can run 4/5 pick-and-rolls with Lauri and switch everywhere defensively, is a better complement.
