    Burks is better than Ariza and 7 years younger. I would much rather keep Burks and play Hayward at the SF. Ideally he is a SG, but he is big enough to play SF. It's not like his height is a huge advantage at SG... we never post the guy up and he showed he can be an adequate rebounder last year.

    I'm not sure where all this Ariza love comes from.... Hayward is so much better than he is.

    We should only be signing Ariza if we don't plan on keeping Hayward.

    You need to add Exum to your sig. Right in the middle. Possibly Hood and Gobert as well.

    Or Burke.

    This season:
    PG: Burke (30); Exum (18)
    SG; Hayward (16), Burks (32)
    SF: Ariza (32); Hayward (16)

    But we have Hood. I'd much rather have Hayward/Hood at SF than Ariza. As another poster noted, Ariza is 29. We don't need a starter who won't be around when the youngsters are ready to contend. If anything, sign Marvin. He backs up BOTH forward positions. Perfect guy to have off the bench, IMO.

    Like it.
    But Philly is going to win like 6 games and Milwaukee may not be far ahead of that. I'm just waiting to hear news out of Milwaukee that Kidd gets all fired up and Sanders pulls one out of his locker and says, "relax man, have one of these." Meanwhile, a frightened Jabari runs off to one corner muttering something about a den of iniquity.

    Doesn't Ariza only play in contract years?

    I think Jazz are just covering their bases in case they can't reach an agreement with Hayward. Or he tells them he hates Utah and wants to go elsewhere. Then you accommodate an unhappy player and arrange a S&T.
    Anyone who takes minutes away from Exum, Hood, etc. is NOT a good signing.

    Exactly. Hopefully Snyder can get this working in the right direction. As long as we have improvements. All that matters this year. The last 3-4 years there were no improvements on that with Corbin.

    Did someone get sent off with a red card? I agree. We may not even be able to win against Philly if we have to play 4-on-5.

    There is probably little chance of signing either Burks or Kanter to a new contract. What do you offer them? Based on what?
    Maybe Burks you could come up with a decent offer. But he likely takes the Hayward approach and believes his play will dictate a much higher contract next summer. And Kanter? Are you buying the HOPE he turns it around on defense? Or are you offering him a contract as a backup? Enes would be foolish to sign any kind of deal unless he were offered Favors-type money (which he won't be this summer).

    And you can't wait on the other FA's. The better ones will all have deals in place within the next 3-7 days. Remember when Phoenix offered Raja a deal at 12:01 of Day 1?

    Burks is not better than Ariza. Ariza is a great player when given the correct role. I don't believe he is a "contract year" guy. I just think he was able to slide into the 3rd/4th option role with the Wizards when Beal really emerged, letting him hit his 3's and play his great defense. He would be able to do that with Utah. You could also get away with playing Ariza at the 4 in small ball lineups. Imagine playing lineups like:

    Exum
    Hayward
    Hood
    Ariza
    Favors

    Floor spacing and size.

    He played poorly in Houston and NOLA because his role was too big. Was injured his first year in Washington, and played his proper role his final year. Just don't put the ball in his hands too much, and let him spot-up and get out in transition and you have a great 3 and D role player with elite size.

    No role player is great.

    I like Ryan Kelly, a stretch 4 who had some good games for Lakers last year. Could grow into Ryan Anderson

    This is how I feel about the Jazz and "Free agent rumors"

    Michael Lee: Trevor Booker is an unrestricted free agent & has attracted interest from several teams (MIA, MIN, UTA, BKN, NYK, ORL & WAS), sources say

    HA! You're wrong.
