    Of course they would win the title with that lineup because of the SC/KT/KD with Gobert protecting the paint. You could start Melo at PF and still win the title.

    Why can't Favors be your starting C?

    I said this before - If he's not your primary C, I think Favors is fantastic bench big.

    I think Favors would be a wonderful starting C.

    The primary center is a position in church ball. Though technically the center, they’re still quite undersized for any game, let alone the NBA.

    They also would win the title with Tony Bradley starting for them I don't know when jazz people going accept Gobert not a top 20 player let alone top 10/

    I'm sure I'm just echoing others, but Brogdon is my hope for the 2019 offseason. Maybe have to move Korver to free some cap, not sure if we have enough without?

    Brogdon
    Mitchell
    Ingles
    Favors
    Gobert

    Crowder/Royce/Exum (assuming he's not dead) as key bench pieces.

    Grab a forward in the draft with some shooting potential (Horton-Tucker, Williams, Washington some of my favorites) in the draft.

    I would love Brogdon, but if the jazz want to maximize talent, sadly (because I love Favors) he needs to be upgraded. It should be Harris. Harris would want to sign with us because he’d have a bigger roll on offense with us.

    I suppose if you really like Harris that'd be fine, I'm not a big fan though.

    As of today, I think the play this summer will be to decline on Favors then re-sign him to a long term deal making around $10 per year. Then let Rubio go while picking up Neto's option. This gives us roughly $20 million to play with.

    Of course we could try to sign someone making more than $20, but I just don't think we can realistically expect anybody that big to have interest in signing with us over other options.

    So the game becomes, how can we best use $20 million in cap?

    I'd probably do $20 for Brogdon.

    Not sure I see anybody else in that range I really like much. Could split it up into smaller chunks, Danny Green types, but I'd prefer that as the secondary plan.

    Me too, but I think the secondary plan will become our only plan. The only guys I would spend $20+ on:

    Harris
    Brogdon
    Randle
    KD
    Klay
    Middleton
    Kawhi
    Kemba
    Russell

    I don't think we are realistically in the mix for any of those guys. So what do we do with $20?

    Bjelica is completely out of the rotation in Sacramento. Would be nice if we could nab him for cheap and address wing/guard with FA dollars.

    Bjelica/Crowder/Royce is plenty stretch/smallball 4s. Can likely bring back Thabo on a minimum deal or keep Niang in case of emergency.

    I wonder how this will impact their ability to re-sign Brogdon?

    I doubt it will. I think they're going all-in since Giannis is an MVP type player now. If they cheap out while they're contenders, it might give him a reason to leave in a few years.

    So you think they'll match even if someone offers him the max?

    As long as the owner doesn't mind paying the tax bill this means nothing.

    They can still pay the bill if they want, but I'd take it as a positive for us, they'll still have Middleton/Brogdon/Lopez/Mirotic all as free agents with ~30M in cap, they're going to have to go way way over to bring them all back.
