    Good news. Now he won't mind so much when Conley pushes him to the bench.

    I don’t doubt this. I was worried someone would give him Solomon Hill money.

    Perfect timing. And a great bargain.

    Nice deal, think he'll keep getting better. He surprises me defensively every once in a while. He just fits our style.

    Great deal for Royce and at a very friendly rate for the team, also helps that Donovan's best buddy on the team has been inked for another 4 years.

    From whom would you suggest he take shots from?

    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.

    He also supports signing a veteran center.

    The second part was signing a guy from the scrap heap.

    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 so happy this got done now! I love Royce, and this contract is great for both sides. Awesome to see a guy like Royce make it like this and grow into this! This was one I was worried about, and it’s great to see Royce wanted to just get it done too and wanted to be here.

    I’d guess Davis is moved at some point. May not be until next season though.

    I would suggest he takes what he's given which typically equates to more than 6 points a night.

    That's pretty fair. Glad we're not losing him. Dude plays defense and improves his skills.

    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.

    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.

    For less than the MLE, I'm happy for that to be his biggest weakness.

    When you think how much Jazz paid Exum this is absolute bargain.
