I think Danny overplayed the “players as assets” style of management at Boston. Maybe that’s not true, but if it is, I hope he learned something about that.

I now have a lot more faith in Utah's drafting ability going forward.
Do you though? DL made some dumb moves but his hit rate is better than Danny’s. He did well at the top of the draft which is important. I do think he’s a guy that will actually canvas the league for deals unlike DL and I think he doesn’t care much about the emotional attachment to players. So when it’s time to pull the plug he will do it.

As long as he could get us some second round draft picks back I'm happy. We need those so we can offload doke

I’ve been a huge fan of Ryan Smith’s ownership so far but have been leery about him wanting to fill his staff with BYU cronies. He did it with the pregame broadcast crew which annoyed me, but I figured if he stopped there, no harm no foul.

Didn’t want Danny Ainge getting anywhere near this team so I see this as extremely unwelcome news and now my fears are validated that even if you’re bad at your job, if you come from BYU, the Jazz have a paycheck waiting for you.

Not a big fan of this… it’s fun to think about working with friends and family but what I’ve noticed is it gets complicated. You need to fire or reprimand a business associate that is also a friend and it gets weird. I think there is a trust there that should be helpful. Feel bad for JZ… he crushed it this offseason and is no second in command again.
