Nice potential for sure. I look at Italy game in Euro and he shoot well. After this he will have to play in another level NBA, But i 'won't be surprised if he become a good player.

That's my hot take.

He might not have better numbers than Sexton, but he will overall be better.
That's what they said about Donovan Mitchell too and look where that got us.

Truthfully I kind of get a kick out of this NBA Starstruck business, one minute a guy is on top of the world and the next he's a total bum! Along those lines, I have to hand it to Smith and Ainge et. al., for cashing out at the right time. I'm sure it was tempting to sit pat at this juncture, particularly with an All Star Game coming to town.

I think he's going to be good, but I don't think he's going to be that good. Assuming we get rid of all the vets, he'll probably be like our 3rd or 4th best player. Adjusting to the NBA game is going to take a while.

If the idea is to lose games yeah they should want to keep those guys. I kind of wish we were going with Vanderbilt over Markkanen but it doesnt seem to be the case.

As far as Fontecchio goes there is just so much to be decided with the roster still. It's tough to say where will Fontecchio fall in the rotation at the end of it all. Let alone how smoothly he'll make the transition to the NBA.

I don’t know. I’m actually trying to figure out who would be in the rotation as of today and I can’t seem to come to an answer. Still so many moving parts
I’m not counting on any of Conley, Clarkson, Beasley, Bogdanovic or Gay and I also think there’s about a 50/50 chance Sexton and Markkanen are both gone by the deadline (I’m wondering if a tanking Jazz could get offers for both that they can’t refuse.)

I think the majority of the season will see the Jazz run with a big rotation of Sexton, JB, THT, Agbaji, NAW, Fontecchio, Bolmaro, Markkanen, Vanderbilt, Azibuke and Kessler. They’re going to use the regular season to figure out who is worth keeping and who they are going to move on from before next season.
