    I thought the idea was to play our young guys. How is bringing in vets (who are average) going to help develop the players. I want the Jazz to bring back Hayward at the right price and if he wants a MAX deal or a deal way out of whack then sign Ariza and call it a day. Play the young guys, we have already gotten rid of average vets so we could clear the roster and develop the young guys. Do not skip this step or we will be back fighting for the eight seed for a decade again.

    I don't think I could cheer for someone as ugly as Ryan Kelly.

    Burks is not more than just a pretty good player, but if ppl's point is that they'd rather have Burks than Ariza, ummmmm...yeah, duh.

    Cleveland supposedly has interest in Hayward and Ariza.

    You don't have to do this. There is a good chance they will but it is not a required salary floor. Instead they just have to split the difference with their players or something like that. GVC knows the details but essentially you do not have to sign players to the floor.

    Good to know... I'll stop banging my head against the wall. I just don't like it when guys say "if you don't have the same opinion as me you are blind, stupid, ugly, impotent, fat, etc.."

    If you do all of that before you sign new players then you can't sign more players. Once you extend them their salaries count. You can sign them over the cap after you sign new guys. At least I think that's the way it works.

    Don't think Wizards let Ariza walk.
    They had no draft picks at all this time.
    They have to keep Ariza and look for more talent.

    I have almost no interest in Ariza. The evidence suggests that he'll get his next contract and coast.

    Any rumors on Parsons? He's the guy I would want if we don't sign Hayward. I'm meh on Ariza. Good player but a little on the old side to fit with our team going forward.

    True, there's no penalty, but if you have to shell out the $ regardless then you might as well hit the floor and put that additional money spent to good use (e.g. taking $23M in dead weight from the Warriors to snag two additional first round picks).

    If we can take on an expiring contract in the Melo/Lebron sweepstakes and get an additional first rounder to boot, I'm all for it.

    Washington just signed Gortat to a sixty million dollar contract. So maybe they don't have as much money as you think. Personally I think Gortat is overpaid. He put up 13.9 pts and 9.5 rebounds. Those are similar numbers to Favors and Favors is young and better in my opinion.

    I only want Ariza if Hayward wants a max or near max deal. I take Ariza at eight million a year over 14+ for Hayward.

    I would rather have Parson's too but the Jazz will have more competition for him. Mavs are interested, Lakers, Rockets to name a few.
