    Henry Ellenson was waived by the Pistons yesterday. Was the 18th player taken in the 2016 draft. This year his gleague stats were 19.5 ppg and 11 rebounds and he is still only 22 years old. He is probably better than Bradley right now.

    Do you see DL waiving Bradley, or anyone else, for him?

    The Jazz aren't going to waive or buyout anyone to pick someone else up. It's just not going to happen at the moment. This is the team they are going with.

    Size, age, rebounding, advanced stats in college.

    The Jazz drafted Bradley as a project. They didn't expect him to make an impact in his first two/three seasons. So it's not surprising that they haven't given up on him. Nobody should be surprised.

    Also, having Cavanaugh and Ellenson would be a bit redundant

    Jazz dont seem to be in a win now mode yet. They dont seem willing to sacrifice youth for a couple more wins. (This not ellenson)

    Why sacrifice when there is no way to get ti the finals right now.

    If the warriors break up this off season you will see more moves.

    If there is a God then

    Durrant leaves
    Thompson leaves (he would look good next to mitchell)

    Ellenson is only 22 years old. It's not like they would be signing a geezer. I think he is better than Cavanaugh.

    This is one of the picks we traded for Bradley. Josh Hart is the other: "Washington Wizards center Thomas Bryant scored 26 points (12-of-19 field goals, 1-of-1 free throws) with 14 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 blocks, and 1 3-pointer in 31.8 minutes of a 148-129 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday." For the year he is averaging 9 points 5.7 boards for the Wiz.

    I've never seen anything from him.

    Literally, I've never seen him play a minute in a Jazz uniform. I'm a bit stunned a first round pick can't see more than 9 minutes of playing time this year. Yes, I know he was hurt but he was healthy for nearly 3 months this season. Yet all the Jazz will play him is 9 ****ing minutes? Hell, his entire career he's played less minutes than some players play in a game.

    Compare Ellenson, Cavanaugh and Bradley's GLeague stats. Ellenson's are clearly the best of all 3. Apparently Detroit felt he was not a prospect anymore.

    They have Svi and Maker. They needed proven Ellington more than a 3rd project.

    My thoughts exactly, I think Cavanagh has more tools. Heck when I saw Bradley in summer league he looked decent but not first round material.

    He just doesn't seem to have the skill set to make it in the league, I trust our coaching staff but I think Cavanagh is more of a jazz man of the future
