    Now news is that celtics are very interested in rubio, and I think he would work well there.

    Nothing but love for Rubio. Played hard and made positive contributions on and off the floor. I hope he ends up in a great spot. He would be a breath of fresh air to the culture in Boston.

    Rubio is a good dude who brought a lot of good things with him to Utah. Unfortunately, good (consistent) perimeter shooting wasn’t one of them.

    I’m sorry that the Jazz looking to upgrade his position hurt his feelings, but it’s a business. With that said, I wish him well. Won’t ever do anything but cheer for him moving forward. Hopefully he handles his exit better than Hayward did.

    Also, as a side note. These professional athletes should tell those in their circle to stop it with sending messages to fan bases. There’s no upside to hurting your legacy and certainly not from someone other than you. Be professional and direct. Works much better.

    If I was Rubio I would be pretty pissed at my business partner.

    Well, when Rubio was being asked about committing to play for the Spanish National Team throughout the upcoming tournament... he mentioned that he needs to make sure it is OK by his NEW TEAM. He specifically said: "you don’t want to start badly with your new team"

    https://www.eurohoops.net/en/fibawc...rld-cup/?utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Twitter

    There is plenty of writing on the wall here if you can't tell. I would think he would be a little less telling if there was still doubt in his mind.

    This is all more of a tell then a slight of Utah.

    Imagine Rubio, Rozier and Smart tossing up shots. It's bad when Marcus Smart is their best shooting PG.

    Maybe they sign Rubio and trade Haywood?

    Why hate on Ricky? He's done nothing to upset anyone here and was always a consummate teammate.

    Just didn't fit what we needed to do. May he find greener pastures somewhere.

    I beg to differ, that wide open 3 pointer air ball in the last game kinda upset me.

    Nothing but love for Rubio. We knew what he was when we obtained him. At times he performed better than he had.

    Favors and Rubio could both end up in Boston. And both would help them win.

    I love Quin, he is a genius. I love Rudy he is exceptional. But the combination makes it difficult for Lindsey to build a roster. And a small unattractive market team is stressed by a business model that devalues existing assets and pays long term assets for short term rentals.

    Celtic games at Vivint would be great... loud cheers for Rubio and lots of boos for Hayward, assuming he’s still on the team.

    Very true. Hayward could be on track to be out of league faster than D-Will was when he left the Jazz.

    I have a feeling Hayward is headed to New Orleans or Memphis this summer.

    Let’s not **** on Rubio. He is a tough fit but gave his all... hopefully he is not salty... we gave him a ton of opportunities. He’s a great man and I wish him nothing but good... It just wasn’t a good enough fit. I will root for him in his next stop... but if it’s Boston it will make it hard.

    I agree. Do you think Hayward is headed to NOLA or Memphis to be a part of Conley or AD trades? Also, do the Jazz make a trade for one of the two positions they need to get the other in free agency?

    How do u even move that contract? Boston is gona have to give up some serious assets like all their picks this year...and maybe some future picks. Moving that contract is hard as ****

    Hope he doesn't end up in Boston. Yuck. He's a good guy and he deserves nice things.

    Yup.. he could be the salary that gets the deal done in either of those trades.

    I think they go to free agency and my homer heart tells me we get Tobias... if we miss I think we trade for Conley... if we miss we might consider one of the restricted free agents... after that it is stitching a couple solid free agents together.

    I think we get Tobias and all is well. We need a win here... so I'll be optimistic.
