    We still have four roster spots to fill with some vet minimums, draft picks, or UDFA.

    Well, they did draft 3 second rounders. I expect them to hunt the bargain bin and see if the find a guy or two they like. Otherwise they go with the best players from summer league and training camp.

    A lot will probably depend on how JWF, Brantley, and Oni look in summer league.

    Wouldn’t be surprised to see them use their two way contracts on two of those guys and have all three end up on the Stars most of the season. That would leave the Jazz with 3 spots to add more veteran players for depth this year.

    Would not shock me at all. I see at most one guaranteed contract on the line for the rooks. And only if one really stands out and can help us win a championship. Otherwise, yeah, probably two-ways and the Stars.

    One of them makes the roster for sure. They didn’t pay 3M to put these guys back out as free agents. I think two of them make the roster one gets a two way.

    Well, we needed to improve our deep outside shooting....and we did! We needed to improve our point guard play and we did! We won 50 games last year with not so great a roster and a pathetic 1st half schedule.......I say we can add 5-10 wins on that total with our fundamentally sound basketball moves! GS has regressed, Houston has regressed, the Lakers have not done anything to impress, Denver we can beat, the Blazers we can beat, the Clippers we can beat!

    Ryan Anderson at the min when he gets waived? Prolly rather just play Niang, but Anderson at the min is a decent bet... I don’t think he’s done.

    Sign the best veteran available to the min we need to fill major gaps in our lineup

    He's an interesting idea but he didn't play at all last year and he can't rebound. Is he really the type of 4 we're looking for? In any case, if we're looking to minimize wear and tear on Ingles and Bogdanovic at the 4, I think he'd be a solid signing as a starter at 15-17 minutes, assuming nobody else comes. I like him more than Jeff Green. Less than JaMychal Green. But I'd really like a miracle where we get Eminem (Marcus Morris).

    Niang is probably better than Anderson. He's washed up. Even Jeff Green would be better. This isn't the Anderson of years ago. Might even prefer Brantley, tbh, if you want a guy to bang and get rebounds.

    Morris bros have too much attitude for Quin. Not going to happen.

    Do the 4 opens include Neto or is it now up to 5?

    Prolly... maybe just roll the damn dice with what we have at the 4... Get some solid vet min at either guard spot.

    I would find the player that matches up most favorably/least unfavorably with LeBron, Giannis, and Kawhi. That’s what I would do.

    This is the point that the Jazz are at. Eyes on the ****ing prize, mates.

    The Jazz could also keep in mind that the Sixers roll out four bigs that can play on the perimeter.

    Marcus Morris seems like a player that checks off a lot of boxes. I would love to have some matchup data to peruse about this.

    Ummm, I see Zanik agrees with me. I'd like to say I called Mudiay, but I wasn't even thinking about him as a backup. Kind of lost track when he went to the Land of Misfit Players (NY). Gotta say I like the two-headed DeJus? Zandey? monster we have making personnel decisions.

    Any rumors cooking that you guys might have heard about?

    Better hope he gets squeezed. If the Lakers miss out on Kawhi, they could grab him with their money. Not sure which teams have mid-level money left.

    Nothing's probably going to happen until Kawhi signs.

    Just looking at the names, I'd be surprised if the Jazz sign anyone other than their own guys/unknown players.

    I think at least two of Kidd/Brantley/Oni/Wright-Foreman make the team and the other two get put on a 2-way. Maybe the Jazz sign another Mudiay type in Stanley Johnson. I think Bradley has firmly cemented himself as making the team as well. Even though he was already fully guaranteed for the year, I think coming in there was still a chance he might get cut if he was bad.

    As far as guaranteed production vets, most of those guys are going to get picked up by the LA teams after Kawhi makes his decision. If Kawhi stays in Toronto that means it will be harder to get one of those guys on a vet minimum. Just have a hard time seeing who that guy would be for Utah looking at the free agency list.

    So we are hoping Kawhi stays in Toronto or goes to the clippers right? I really don’t want to deal with a 3 headed monster if he signs with the Lakers!
