    I believe the league intervened with Caruso... Can't have another super team after they finally broke up the Warriors. Morris is a poor man's Niang.

    You lost me when you suggested all of our options at 4 are "non athletic shooters". If you think Jeff Green and Royce O'neale aren't athletic I question whether or not you watch games.

    Caruso would’ve been a great option. Dude has skills and he’s been working this offseason. He is absolutely jacked.

    I’ve seen the original picture and you could still tell that he’s packed on some muscle. He has a great opportunity to break out this year.

    Excuse my interruption of this brilliant thread... but this has to be the best JFC slam of the summer. Bravo!

    First off, it’s a bad take, secondly, with the salary cap, you’re simply not going to have EVERYTHING on your NBA roster. The Jazz aren’t going any further in the playoffs until they can score more points. Period.

    As badly as we all wanted the Gobert/Favors combo to work, it was something that was gonna hold us back until we decided to move on. I could give you numerous problems with the Raptors roster heading into last years playoffs, but in the end, that team ended up being greater than the sum of its parts. Hell, aside from Golden State these past few years, you could point out 2 or 3 fatal flaws from any of the legit “contenders”.

    While Utah’s offseason is just good on paper at this point, 1 major thing keeps bringing me back to the fact that it’s ok to be downright giddy heading into this season: This roster is constructed of proven players that compliment each other’s games almost perfectly. Even taking off my Jazz-colored goggles, there’s not many teams over the past 5-10 years that boasted a more complete roster.

    I’m absolutely convinced that the 6ers-Clippers-Jazz have far and away the 3 most complimentary rosters in the NBA.

    Well he did say he loved what we did this offseason, not sure about the rest of the post. Who could have they realistically added at the 4. I can think of someone who is athletic like jordan bell who has defensive potential but his offensive game is very limited. Not sure if its worth it.

    I don't think there's a single poster here who wouldn't have wanted to keep Favors while still getting all the players that we did.

    The FO had to choose, and based on the last couple of playoffs, I think they chose right.

    Not going to be a popular post. Most of these fans are all in on the analytic bandwagon. We might as well not even play the games just have statistical simulations results for the season.
