I think this is a signal that the Jazz are going to re-sign Conley more than anything else. Shaq was Oni insurance and Oni passed the test.
Not sure one leads to the other... this is clearly us trying to duck the tax. Not sure how far we are away but I don't think this alone does it. I guess if it leads to us avoiding the repeater tax in two years then there is correlation.

I am obviously a little bummed it didn't work out and that he didn't get a chance. I have no doubt someone picks him up. He was only going to get a shot if we had an injury or two and we have been really healthy.

If we did this and we don't get under the tax then this is stupid AF. The numbers get pretty tricky... had we saved a $1M on the Favs deal I think we'd be there.

I assume 10 day contracts count against the cap for luxury tax purposes. Could the Jazz comply with the CBA and 14 player max by signing a guy to a 10 day let it expire , waith 14 days, and then someone else to a 10 day let it expire, wait 14 days and then rinse and repeat and do that throughout the season?

I was doing homey math and they could bring a two way player up (either Brantley or Forrest) and sign a GLeaguer to the two way spot. I think Forrest could be paid the bare minimum.

He never got an opportunity... he’s a really good defender. Hopefully we stay healthy and don’t regret this. I would be willing to bet large sums of money he ends up on another roster.
