    Just a question...

    Is there another team in the league who wouldn't be playing their #3 and #9 draft picks from just 2 years ago? Seriously how weird is this? Kanter sometimes gets 10-15 mins. Burks sometimes touches the court (but most of the time just sits on the bench). Isn't this a bit... Abnormal?

    Is there another team in the league who would have 3 recent high lotto picks (Favors, Kanter, Burks) coming off the bench?

    Isn't this weird?

    Just curious.

    Of all the top 12 picks in 2011 Burks is, to no surprise, getting the fewest minutes. Kanter is ahead of Fredette and Vesely, but that's it.

    Hypothetical: last summer we draft Lillard. Does he play?

    Nah, he would have been sent to the D-league. That Quinn guy would have made the roster, he has some years on him.

    I'm telling you, we're stashing those guys so in a couple years when their rook contract runs out, we can afford to keep them all and keep the team in tact... To what end? I don't know.

    It is pretty ridiculous.
    I don't mind it when they do make enough young mistakes to keep the vets on the floor, but a lot of times (ESPECIALLY with Al and Sap) the vets are making more mistakes. I get why Burks isn't getting minutes. Sometimes he does stupid things like that time he shot a pull up 3 when he was supposed to feed the post. Fine. Teach him a lesson. I don't have a problem with any of our wings other than Foye's defense at times.

    I don't get it with Kanter, especially now. Maybe I need to look at him more, but I don't think he makes many defensive mistakes. He rotates well, he defends the pick and roll well, rebounds amazing, etc. On offense, he's a trainwreck with passing. He might be worse than Al on passing out of the post. But at least he can score out of the post. I just don't get it. I think KOC needs to make a move to keep the stupid out of Corbin.

    You can't stash guys 4 years, their agents aren't dumb and will force a trade, with the player having all time low value. Not to mention no lottery pick would ever workout for the Jazz so any draft would be a shot in the dark.

    ty corbin is new in headcoaching and he does not have too much self-confidence about loosing any game he plays youngs as starters that would be won by playing the stars. it's not only about being new in the job and trying to hold on to it of course, it's fifty percent about personality. corbin is a good man but he is psyched out coz of the pressure right now. youngs extended their contracts to 3 this summer, so he is keeping it cool. no flashy growth for them this season I'm afraid. unless jazz trades one or two bigs.

    skeptical about it. especially burks. kanter is a love bear and as he got drafted he simultaneously fell in love with the jazz, SLC and the fans, so I think he will finish his contract unless jazz trade him, which would be pointless after that point.

    Just a small correction - we drafted 12th not 9th.
