Jalen will be an unrestricted and should be someone we look into in the offseason depending on how we draft. Same will probably go for Reddish unless he gets traded to a team that is willing to give him a serious look and starts breakout.
I think the price could be really low on him though. He likely gets an offer in the MLE range I'm guessing... so will have a wide market. Would be nice to try it before we buy it.

My thought is a Vando for McDaniels swap... they get a budget player on a two year deal for their expiring

I listened to a pod with Sarah Todd on it last night. She's not my fav but she laid out the situation perfectly... he's playing to make Rudy Gay happy and to keep the peace. His comments from last year about "not doing his job" and periodic temper tantrums all support this case. The fact that Hardy has even started throwing him some vintage Rudy Gay post ups is hilarious. Hardy is managing this situation until the find an out.
Eh, his off/on numbers are actually decent in comparison with the eye test. I don't think the Jazz are bending the organization to make Rudy happy. Once somebody consistently outplays his impact he will get less time. That person is going to be Olynyk.

I would rather have Vando. You don't trade an asset for an expiring contrat.

He does some okay things... I'd just encourage you to listen to the Callin Shots podcast with Sarah and Seth Partnow. We aren't bending the whole organization... but yeah we are giving him a role that should be invested elsewhere to keep the peace.

KO may take his minutes. I also think if Gay isn't moved that he will be bought out after the deadline.

I would... you'd get a chance to see what he has... he fits a position of need. You also get his bird rights and there is a much better chance of you signing him if he is already in house versus trying to sell him in FA.

I think this year's FA crop has some interesting MLE types. I wouldn't mind acquiring Jalen and giving him an MLE type deal and then also pursuing Naz Reid with something around the MLE. There are some others but getting Jalen now has value and Vando is likely only getting you second rounders in a trade.

Kessler is going to be taking those minutes. He's moving into 30 minutes a game up from 12-15.
We will see. I wont be shocked to see kessler go back to 23 minutes per night and KO at 28 and Gay right there at 13-15 like always.
I mean i think most of us knew Kessler should be getting closer to 30 minutes per night and Gay zero before KO got hurt. Yet that wasn't happening. At all. I hope you are right though.

By the way Cy, I want to make it clear that I think you have a very good basketball mind and I appreciate your posts. I hope you dont take my disagreements with you or what may seem like me attacking you too personally/hard.
I appreciated Cy's BASKETBALL comments. But they made up about 1/3rd of his posts. More often then not his posts were unapologetically aggressive, crass, cynical, snarky, political, directed at individuals, or below the belt.

The mute button means I didn't hear whatever comment he likely made back or will shortly send over. It's a great add to JazzFanz. I love keeping the peace on this forum but some posters make that impossible. That's when we all enjoy Simon & Garkfunkel playing 'The Sound of Silence'. Beautiful.

I'm assuming Will/Gay have a decent relationship from their time together in San Antonio.
