    There are a lot of interesting names on the buyout list. Should the Jazz sign one and jettison someone for the playoff push?

    Tony Jones already reported that he doesn't think the Jazz will sign any buyouts.

    What's the point of having TB on the roster? Might as well try someone else.

    My feelings, too.

    Wayne Ellington and Wes Mathews are both tempting to me, if either of them would sign.

    Matthews has or is going to sign with the Pacers. Ellington would be interesting.

    The only reason we’re keeping Bradley is because of the sunk cost fallacy. If you don’t believe that, pretend he’s on another team and if you’d be saying “yeah, let’s go get him!”

    If he wasn't on the Jazz, homeytennis would be the only one to know about him.

    15th men suck.

    Matthews agreed to sign with Indy within hours of his buyout.

    As for Ellington...

    This is one thing the Millers have done over the years is that if a guy's contract is guaranteed they will keep him around because that organization would have to pay it if he is waived. They factor in a couple of playoff series to finish in the black. Right now all 15 Ks are guaranteed.

    We should pick up Alex Abrines. Good shooter, I think his defense is underrated but still not great. Jazz wanted him in the Thunder trade with Kanter years back.

    never mind

    Cool. So when we clear our logjam at the 5, TB proves something. Nothing proven yet.

    The front office's ego. There's a running theme here.
