We will sign him. I have a feeling. A HUNCH. We waived Diaw before the Saturday deadline and not long after San Antonio renounced Simmons.

Holy cow what a get he would be. I've been raving about him for months. He's got the balls Hayward never had. If we can get him for $10 a year, we just had an amazing offseason fellas...

Jazz do not want to impede playing time for Mitchell. They are so high on him right now.

Short of a trade the Jazz are done.

LOL. Okay guys....

Simmons is a SF and we don't have a starter right now. If we get Simmons at $10, then we have an option better than making Hood go to SF when he's not big enough yet. Sefolosha is a bench guy. Joe Johnson should be too. I love Mitchell, but there is no reason to force him in this season. If he's that good, he's going to take Hood's spot not a SF.

Simmons can guard 1 through 4. He's an asset. And at $10 per year, he's a steal.

1st Unit
Rubio
Hood
Simmons/Jingles
Favors
Gobert

2nd Unit
Exum
Mitchell
Jingles/Simmons
Johnson
Udoh

Depth - Bradley, Sefolosha, Jerekbo, Burks, Neto

Bolomboy waived

Want to bet $20 that we don't get Simmons?

Nah, this is just a hunch. If we want to make our team better, we add him.

You have to admit - waiving Diaw two days before his deadline AND a few hours after Simmons became an unrestricted free agent seems like more than a coincidence. Why rush the Diaw decision?

The Ingles disrespect found in this post should be a ban worthy offense

So Diaw can find a new home asap

Uhh, Jazz fans got mad for Hayward dragging out an obvious decision but Jazz should take as long as possible to waive Diaw?

Diaw is an asset that expires in a few days. HAYWARD said he would make his decision on a certain day. Completely different.

The Jazz waived Diaw two days early for one of two reasons:

#1 - we wanted the money to make a run at a free agent
#2 - we are staying put

If there was a trade possibility out there, it is illogical to dump a valuable trade asset like a non-guaranteed. You wait until the deadline and waive.
