    Exactly the point. Utah is currently 9th but is playing the best of all the teams that are 8-12. They're only 1 1/2 games behind Charlotte and Brooklyn. Utah also has a relatively easy schedule. Next 10 games we only play 2 teams with winning records. I guess we can "hope" to lose a couple of those, especially to Boston and Brooklyn. WE also have a light edge over the last 14 in the sense we're playing WC teams and the EC non-playoff teams should have some games to play against each other.

    Neto looked VERY good. He's not afraid to take it inside. Jazz would be crazy not to bring him over. Who cares if he beats out Exum? Competition may be just the thing Exum needs to light a fire under him.

    If we didn't need offense so bad, I'd be down with bringing Neto over as our backup.

    Maybe we could package Burke, Burks and some picks for something legit...move up for Russell???

    Exum-Neto
    Russell-Ingles
    Hayward-Hood
    Favors-Booker
    Gobert-Pleiss

    Not sure I like that squad. At all.

    Who has more upside? Mudiay, Russell, or Exum. Who will be better next year?

    Do beat around the bush. Yes i'd trade Exum for either one. Anyone would I think.

    *Exum with better upside.
    *Of these options, Exum will be the best next year.

    Our team is legit good right now and everyone will get better. When Lindsey traded Kanter he mentioned that Rudy sped up the timeline a bit with his play. I wonder if we will want to wait for Dante to get there... I'd consider making a godfather offer for the 3rd or 4th pick to get one of those guys... and I'd include Exum in that package.

    I do think Exum can be a really good player... I just think he will really hold this team back until he gets there.

    I thought that E-X-U-M didn't spell bust but I'm starting to worry that I may have been wrong. Kid looks like he belongs in the WNBA.

    *There isn't a rookie that will push us into the next tier of teams.
    *Exum will get better and is already playing a necessary role. I'd be shocked if they traded him.

    If we do stay at the #12 (this is where we will be drafting barring an injury) I think its either Kaminsky or Booker. Kaminsky is a better version of Kelly Olynyk... He would fit a need now. I don't think there is a great comp for Booker. I don't think he is Klay Thompson... just not as big.

    I would be surprised if they traded Exum as well and I agree that there both rookies likely wouldn't push us into the next tier next year, but both guys seem to be further along in their development than Exum.

    I've seen some things I like from Exum, but he is really far away. Next season will be telling for him. If he comes in with little progress we are in trouble.

    @BillSimmons now known as the "Wiggins draft". Though Parker, Nurkic, maybe Exum have star potential. And a few others perhaps.

    Some people still see potential in him.

    I see potential in him, but there is a long, tough road in between him realizing that potential right now.

    Thorpe also saw a lot of potential in Fesenko... No one is 100% in guessing this stuff. So much depends on work ethic.

    you guys are all funny. a couple things about the exum debate

    1st - grass is always green on the other side of the fence.

    2nd - QS runs a system that does NOT use a traditional pg. Russell and mudiay can play along side exum or he with them.

    3rd - exum has an off season coming. what he does this off season will mean a lot for his future. he needs to bulk up a bit and work on his core strength. nothing he is doing can't be corrected.

    4th - exum is 19 won't even be 20 until July.

    Yea, maybe he'll turn out okay. But people acting like it's impossible for a top 5 pick to bust are equally delusional as those giving up on him already.
