I probably should’ve worded it better. Of course he’s not an “abject failure” by putting together an incredibly successful roster for pretty much the entire time he was here.

I would consider his asset management philosophy and setting the stage to lose Hayward (without adequately replacing him) to be failures. Jingles, Bogie and Royce are all solid wings, but none is dynamic enough to be that 3rd star. The Jazz have needed a dynamic wing for years, and DL failed to really go after one - even though it’s been the team’s top need for years.

Or a 4 capable of being a longterm piece. I think that's actually the bigger need because it's consistently been there since Gobert's emergence (7 years and counting).

I think some of us get tired of the incessant negativity at times here.

Sure, he rebuilt the Jazz and helped lead us to the team's best record in more than two decades. But none of that matters, apparently, since he's an "abject failure" for striking out several times (as if striking out isn't part of the nature of the business).
The rebuild didn't really start until Quin gets here in 2014. DL had been in charge since 2012 and the rebuild didn't go anywhere for two years, wasting multiple expirings and picks in the process, including benching Rudy his whole rookie year. DL's biggest success as a GM was hiring Quin

Again, still no info on the protection on that future 1st. There gotta be lottery protection of some sort

We got the 2027 OKC second round pick... we also got $2M in cash from OKC... so Ryan can go ahead and pay some bills and get that new balance beam we need.

Bad news for those that like Larry Nance... the TPE isn't big enough to fit him in. Can't be combined with other salary or exceptions... so that ain't happening.
Should’ve included Matty Ice. Then replace him with Redick.
