    I'm disappointed about Mudiay's hamstring. Cut him now before he becomes Rudy's best friend.

    Actually I want to keep Mudiay. I don't know who to cut but I kind of hope they keep Howard, at least if he can keep shooting well.

    In this new positionless/hybrid NBA, what makes you say that?

    Players on the roster better suited to be the 3rd PG. Mitchell, Ingles, Exum, Mudiay, O'neal, all far superior to NWG, and that's if you even really need 3 guys that can play PG. NWG either needs to play far better than he did, or he needs to go. I really don't think this guy will be on the roster long.

    NWG looked far superior to Niang in the games vs 36ers.

    I think Kidd is the leader in the clubhouse, but JWF may be gaining ground with his DNP/CD, Oni was awful, NWG looked decent and Niang looked like he would be a heck of a player for the Stars. Howard did nothing tonight and Kidd was decent. Heck of a Stars team we are building.

    If NWG ever made the team the book on him would be all of one sentence. High pressure on the ball and he either can't bring the team into its offense or he turns it over. He just doesn't have the athletic ability or the composure of an NBA PG.

    NWG looks better than he did in summer league a couple of years ago. Holy Oliver Hanlan.

    When Mudiay and Exum play, NWG can play in the G-league.

    I think that is a given. I think 12-20 on the roster are all destined for some time with the Stars.

    I think Howard and Brantley have the most upside for spots 14 and 15. Howard has shown he can shoot though he didn’t do much in last nights game. Brantley has some mad hops but lacks on court awareness. NWG looks like a third string point guard out there but there is nothing there that makes me think he will be anything special. Kidd looks like a good leader out there for a third string unit but I still think the jazz should fill up the backend with upside rather than pieces that have already been decided that’s where they belong. I think Howard and Brantley would fit the 14 and 15 best. Send Kidd NWG and JWF to the G league.

    The big questions on this team are on the defensive side. That gives Kidd and Brantley a definite edge over the likes of NWG and Howard.

    My gut tells me that Niang will definitely make the roster.

    JWF is already on a two-way

    NWG looked terrible. Once again drove into the lane and lost control of the ball. Terrible handles for a PG and can't get around anybody. My vote is NWG goes. Georges looks to be playing himself out of the rotation, I think Brantley plays that position better and has more upside.

    I’d be surprised is it isn’t one of Howard/Kidd based on how their contracts are structured. My guess is that the Jazz pick one and put the other guy on notice.

    Show something before the deadline for the contract to become fully guaranteed or Brantley gets called up for the rest of the year and they both get cut.

    Based on what I’ve seen so far, I think Kidd is the odd man out and likely ends up back with the Stars. Howard gets a shot to stick and compete with Brantley for the 15th spot with JB for the rest of the season after that.

    IF the Jazz cut bait on NWG, I’d expect them to pick up another PG to fill that role instead of keeping both of the bubble wings.

    Didn’t DL say teams were interested in NWG? Time to parlay him into a second rounder.

    That's something I wondered about. It seemed odd that you had 16 contracts plus two two ways going into camp. It seems that the sneaky front office might have something up their sleeves.
