    Bolomboy, anyone? I think he would a great value signing. He's athletic, and a good 3 point shot, and great in the locker room.

    Good point about roster turnover. Nothing happened positive in that arena depending how good Allen is. Jerebko will be missed a little I think. I always thought he provided a spark.

    A. Not everyteam will have a max slot.
    B. Of the teams that do have a max slot available none of them will have Rudy, Spida, and quin and will be coming off a 55 win season and another good playoff run.

    The Jazz should be attractive to a lot of players. Money, talent, winning, fun team chemistry, great coach, loyal orginization, great fans. Want all that and a shot at a championship? Then come to Utah.

    And as Ron mentioned, cap flexibility can be used in signing/extending your own players and then trading for stars using assets.
    There wasn’t much to be had by Utah this summer that was better than what we already have. I think the jazz will get a significant piece between now and the trade deadline of the 2020/21 season. I have faith in this franchise at this particular point in time. I’m drinking the koolaid hardcore.
    Spida is a godsend for his franchise and is gonna make things happen.

    Lol.


    I think people tend to have a mindset that has been forged by seasons past.
    The future is going to be different than the past. I can feel it. The jazz are headed to greatness.

    Oh, you are probably right. I have not seen it yet. What did Portland pay him?

    I guess I just don’t yet buy Utah as a free agent destination in 2019.

    That being said, I haven’t really seen a move or a deal that I wish Utah would have done other than maybe buying low on Hezonja or signing Bjelica to the same deal he got with Philly.

    I mean, it looks like we’ve probably decided on replacing Jonas with Georges. I just think Bjelly and Hezonja were both better options and could have been had on cheap one year deals

    And that’s understandable. Like I said, the past has forged that into all of our brains. Mine included. We have never been a free agent destination before.

    But looking at this franchise and where it sits currently with a fresh perspective that is unbiased by the past it just seems like things are different and will continue to get more different from the past in the next few years. It’s seems like there is more jazz chatter and buzz than normal. I hear guys like Lillard wanting to come hear and Donovan recruiting PG and mirotic having the jazz as a preference and so on.
    Even if we traded for a star that didn’t necessarily want to be here at the time of the trade I believe that this current version of the jazz can win enough and make that star like it here enough to re-sign like Paul George (even though I felt that was an outlier).

    I’m probably way to optimistic and not realistic but it’s honestly how I feel.

    Of course I had high hopes for the core4 as well and looked how that petered out into unfilled dreams.

    Agreed. Also, Smart is going to bury his agent next to Jimmy Hoffa.

    It would seem to me that signing the qualifying option is a pretty good indicator that you are gone as soon as you are contractually able. I would look to trade him if I were Boston.

    Problem is the QO gives him a defacto no trace clause, so S&T would need to be done, but it probably wouldn't happen due to the rules. Basically, Boston is stuck with him unless they yank it.

    Houston determined to get Carmelo... that is just great... can we start a gofundme to pay for his moving costs?

    I'll kick in for it. That SO needs to happen, if not the Brons.
