    lol no

    I don’t understand the love affair some of you have with Bradley. It’s like the Exum fetish has been replaced with a Bradley fetish. If we can improve our team, why not? Bradley *clap* isn’t *clap* good.

    Gobert playing a career high in mins and having to carry such a load isn’t good. He’s having to do so much because Bradley and Davis have been so ineffective. Seeing how the teams who have beaten us down this year have been teams with big frontlines, it only makes sense that we need to upgrade our 4/5 position.

    The fact that you hate it means it would work out great.

    I doubt it. WIth Clarkson I gave a reason why it might work even though I didnt like it. With Boban it just isnt a fit.

    Right. Bogut started for the Dubs and played about 10 minutes a game but Boban won’t work for us a little bit.

    I have no idea what point you are trying to make with that comp, but Bogut was actually very good at basketball and Boban is not

    yeah, the most efficient offensive player in nba history who actually can play some defense isn’t good and 2015 Bogut, not 2011, was very good.

    lmfao you’re such a ****ing clown.

    You obviously dont watch games. Bradley has been a lot better than Davis this year. Bradley is getting paid next to nothing AND he is already on the roster. He is getting a lot of offensive rebounds and actually getting a block a game for the limited time he is playing.

    He isnt Exum, exum had played plenty of time in the NBA to determine if he was a bust, Bradley is coming in 1/3 of the way in the season and trying to hit the ground running. For having little NBA experience and learning on the fly I think he is doing a really good job all things considered.

    I’ve seen every game with the exception of two or three. And the issue isn’t with Bradley’s experience but athleticism.

    So what you're saying is that just because he cant jump that there is no way he can be good?

    What he’s saying is because he can’t jump, is slow to react, has poor lateral speed, can’t switch quick at the rim, and ends up fouling for and-1s to compensate, that he’s a liability of being a complete sieve when a team is looking for weaknesses to exploit. But yeah, make it about his jump.

    Yeah, young players have probably hit their ceiling. No need to have a 21 year old try to get better, he's already hit his ceiling. You're short sighted.

    Btw you just described Joe Ingles. Bradley's size and length makes up a lot of lateral quickness just like Joe.

    These trade posts are garbage 1/2 of the time. The only one I've seen that makes sense is the one for Aaron Baynes. This one for Boban, its idiotic.

    Why would Dallas trade Boban to Utah? Utah is a potential first round matchup for them, why would they do this? Even before Powell got injured, what does the Jazz have that Dallas needs? Why would they help Utah?

    Lakers slapper is a wolf crying idiot

    I saw Boban go off for like 21 pts 15 rebounds like 2 and a half years back in Houston. He was toying with the rockets.

    I think the "ideal" back up center for Gobert wouldn't be another Gobert, but someone who can give the Jazz a different look (ie. a center who can hit 3 pt shots, but still set hard screens and play decent D.).

    For what it's worth that might be:

    Alex Len (36% from 3 last season, 25% this season - and Atlanta is the worst right now, he has to be available).
    Aron Baynes (33% from 3, and an 80% ft shooter - Phoenix is the 11th seed currently, Pelicans are climbing - they got to realize playoffs aren't happening soon enough).
    Kelly Olynyk (40% from 3 this season, 88% on free throws - Miami likes him, I don't know if they love him though, they have $140M in committed salary and may be looking to lower that amount before the deadline - Olynyk has a player option for $13M for next season).
    Frank Kaminsky - (35% from 3 this year, a career 75% FT shooter, the Suns like him for sure, but even averaging 11 ppg and 5 boards, he is the lesser of their 2 backup centers.) May be available.
    Cody Zeller - (hits just 27% from 3 this season, but is the best rebounder of the group with 7 per game - Charlotte could move him because at 15M next season, he's a bit overpaid).
    Larry Nance Jr. (definitely more of a 4/5 with emphasis on him being a 4, but he hits 34% of his 3s, great rebounder 6.9 rpg, and is a great energy guy off the bench, this one just seems like a possibility because Utah likes to trade with Cleveland lately - see Jordan Clarkson-Dante Exum, Kyle Korver-Alec Burks, Jae Crowder-Rodney Hood trades).

    Not sure Nance is possible for a number of reasons, but even if hypothetically he were, he's got a contract that runs a few years around $10M. Not a bad deal, but may be really hard to fit into our cap. But I went to look at his defense a bit and this was a pretty impressive video:



    In a hypothetical world, if he ended up juts getting most of Bradley and Niang's minutes, that'd be huge.

    I don’t know - part of me is like Larry Nance Jr. would definitely require a 1st round pick, then another part is like why give up a first for a guy averaging 8ppg on a bad team?!!

    He has his moments. He's an immobile post center tho. He doesn't really do PNR well and he can't move on D at all

    I think Boban is a guy you throw in like once every 10 games and when people aren't ready for it he can dominate for a short stretch while the normal huge humans figure out what to do with this monster... if he's an everyday guy he can be planned around pretty easily... they guy just can't keep up on the court.
