Trade Rumors Involving the Jazz

I think this Gobert or Mitchell argument is kind of funny because we already know who the franchise has chosen. This is not a debate they are having in the front office, and it's not a debate the rest of the league would be having. One of these players is a lot more valuable than the other, and it's just a fact. It's Mitchell and it's not close. Building around a 30 year old Rudy Gobert in the modern nba is the most insane thing I've ever heard. It's an idea only a delusional fan could have. I don't know how you could watch the Jazz playoff performance in the last three years and come to the conclusion that Gobert is your most valuable piece. Year after year the league has proven that good teams can neutralize "The Gobert Effect" when they need to. And if you trade Mitchell you're not getting a Mitchell-quality star back--star for star trades don't happen--and if you don't have a Mitchell quality star you might as well trade Gobert and start the rebuild, because you can't win even a first round playoff series if Gobert is you're best player.

These are the pertinent questions Ainge and the front office are asking themselves: do you keep Gobert and Mitchell together, or do you trade Gobert? Or do we think Mitchell himself isn't good enough to be a franchise player and should we trade them both?" I really doubt there's anyone in that entire front office saying, "Let's trade Mitchell and do a quick rebuild around a 30 year old defensive-only center who can't even score on Luka Doncic in the post."

Dallas lined up in a set that had an iso up top with 3 out on the right. So if Don pushes Dinwiddie to his left and to Rudy, Dinwiddie has to hit a very tough left handed shot or floater on the run going to his left.

Like I say often, I could be wrong, but it looks to me like he forced him left on purpose. Rudy is supposed to step in because that's the design. We have been funneling stuff to Rudy for years.

I think Don messed up by not pushing down enough and to Rudy, but the plan was to send him left and to Rudy.
Whatever Don did or didn’t do, I promise, that wasn’t in the game plan. Lmao.

This article has a reasonable take on things...

The Jazz have been built as a pick-and-roll team around Conley/Gobert and other guys who can run pick-and-rolls with Gobert. Their timeline has been based around guys in their 30s (Conley, Bogdanovic, Ingles) playing next to Gobert. The Jazz now need to shift both their playstyle and their timeline if they want to improve. They need to reset.
