Good news. Now he won't mind so much when Conley pushes him to the bench.
But why are you getting rid of Bradley? I'd think that Bradley becomes MORE valuable of you are rolling with Leonard. I would not have him as my only backup center.If you go plug in those two guys in other scenario for guys with the same salary as Leonard, it works. If you take guys from other teams who make as much as Bradley and Davis and they can be swapped for Leonard. All I know is that the trade machine has been thought to have many obvious flaws in the past, but months later people discover why it’s said what it has. In any case, do you make that deal?
I’m proposing sending him out for “nothing” now. It just happens to come with a guy that gives your bench some options. You still get a defensive 5 off the scrap heap for this season. But both those option, even by themselves, beats the hell out of the status quo.
I’d guess Davis is moved at some point. May not be until next season though.But I was thinking Royce May get $11-12/per, so this is good. Leaves us more room to work on getting Clarkson back. But a combined $8.5M on Davis and Bradley is too much if Davis is not going to play and if Bradley is going to be the guy.
I’m fine with how many he takes. Perhaps only shoot when he passes up wide open ones. When he’s shooting threes, even with a good percentage, I feel more comfortable with other guys doing it. Not a knock on him.I think this summer is regarded as a weak free agency class, IINM. Royce could have received a stupid contract. I think it's a fair deal for the Jazz' best perimeter defender. I wish he would shoot a bit more, though. At the % he shoots 3's, he should be taking more of them.
