Jazz do need another player
Give him a chance
Might give Jazz a better chance for ring
He can split time with Favors and both can be rested

Man his numbers the last two years are rough. I think its a combo of being washed and not trying all that hard. I'd probably talk myself into it but it isn't a home run for whoever brings him in.

I mean, if he wants to come sign for the minimum you have to do it. The upside is huge compared to little downside.

He's only 31
How can he be worn out already although he put up lots of tough minutes his first ten years
He would have a very good chance of getting ring with Jazz

I think his passing from the elbow and in pick and roll/pop could do well here. His shooting being so bad is the weird part. Will go lookup his spot up shooting versus pull-up.

Agree it’s worth the flier and you could always go back to Niang or Oni and cut him.

His injuries and health aside, I think he's lost all motivation being stuck in Detroit. If he's cheap enough and willing to come, I would bring him on.

I don't think there's room for him on the Clippers with Ibaka and Morris being there. He can add some size and toughness to the Nets maybe, but he's become a defensive liability at this point, and that's the last thing they need. Lakers have AD, Kuzma and the other Morris. So who knows? TBH, he could fit with the Jazz if he's got anything left in the tank. He can still pass and drive the ball in space.
He is a less mobile, less skilled Bojan at this point. Not sure what he would add. What we need at that spot is defense above all, and he won't add that. I would pass on him personally. He won't really make us better and would likely be very disruptive to team chemistry.

Agree mostly with both of these, even if they're slightly opposed.

I don't get super excited when I look at him. But if you're bringing in a guy on a minimum deal who two years ago was averaging 25 ppg to take some of Niang's minutes, it's worth it to see if you can discover at least a sliver of that. If it's a motivation issue and you can get him up, then that's pretty valuable. But the biggest loss is possible opportunity cost, like if a better guy got waived that would provide more value, I don't think we'd be the type of team to waive a big name like Griffin who willingly signed with us. But if we're willing to do that, then yes.

A few years ago there had supposedly been talk of him getting moved to our team (summer of Hayward decision or the year before) and he was expecting it and apparently on board. I forget where that came from, but it had come from a legitimate source, but there was never any other details on it.

He's a far better passer... they really aren't similar players as Bojan is a far better shooter.

We've never had a good passing big man and that's something I've wanted to see. His catch and shoot 3p% is 35% so could be a pick and pop option.
