    I stopped reading after you called the Bulls, Knicks, Cavs, and Suns wise.

    I disagree. But ok

    Guess we will see how the FOs and league office feels about this moving forward.

    I am 100% in your corner on this one! What you have said makes great sense and keeps our team more than competitive along with adding Rivers and Winslow could put us in the 55-60 win category!

    More on the Memphis situation... they don't have to trade Conley but should be highly motivated to do so for reasons I've already outlined... another quirk is Delon Wright. If they take Morant and want to retain Wright how are they going to make that work with Conley. Mike can play with either guy but one of those guys is a backup until someone is moved. They could just match on Wright and figure it out later, but keeping Wright, Conley and waiving Bradley puts them inches away from the tax. If they move to or near the floor they save $25M - $30M next year. Is Conley going to push gate receipts by $20M or more? not likely.

    I also saw that JV mentioned he may not pick up his option if they trade Conley... I'm not 100% sure they want to pay him $18M next year. I'm really sure he won't make that amount back next year if he declines the option... not crazy but I think he'd regret it.

    I'm guessing based on this comment that if they could get off Exum's money they'd do it. Put him in the Conley trade... move on.

    Super confused about this tweet and the “Jazz are super duper excited for Dante Exum to be super duper important next year!!1” tweet from a few days ago.

    But I’ll take it.

    Do people know that Mike Conley was better than Jrue Holiday last year? Just curious.

    It would be nice if our front office had the foresight that 80% of reasonable people on a message board have, and had gotten this done at the trade deadline back when Exum wasn’t quite a completely negative asset.

    I’ve always been a Exum supporter, and I’ve moved on. If he plays great, if he’s injured... oh well if traded, see ya. Just not a big deal to me anymore.

    But how much longer will that last, but isn’t Holiday a much better defender?

    I wanna quibble for a second:

    “They’ve given up on him having an impact one way or another”? He has an impact. A demonstrably negative one on the court and on the market.

    Sorry everyone. I’ll be done when this cursed being is.

    This completely contradicts everything he's been saying.

    Know how to live without him? Well duh we've had to. Moved on from him? Since when?

    Maybe Tony talked with someone inside the organization recently and they told Tony a new talking point.
