that the Jazz have not been just throwing around all kinds of **** to see what sticks. I think they have handled this off-season well so far. We have a solid squad, with great potential who have already shown they can lead this league in at least one area, and did so with great chemistry and commeraderie. I think the front office knows that and does not want to mess with things. Imagine the message it would send if they were suddenly throwing offers and RFA's, knowing they would be matched anyway, and knowing that the upgrades for the most part are not huge step changes. It would tell Hayward, Hood, Exum, Favors, et al that we really don't think they can get there, that we are desperate to replace them and upgrade at all costs. It would shoot the chemistry in the foot and be a slap in the face to the players. Now if they are really working on a deal and are looking to move players/assets for upgrades, then I think that sends the right message to the team. Not that we are just trying to get rid of any and all off them but that we have a plan, we recognize what we have and what we need, and are willing to make the moves necessary to put stronger players into the mix with our core. That is how you keep our best guys happy, confident and comfortable, while working to take the team to the next level.
