The Jazz struggled for years to hold off free agency raiders such as Portland, which wooed Wes Matthews with superior dollars. It tried to make away with Millsap, too.
Now it’s the Jazz with the cash — or at least the cap space — and ownership has OK’d the team spending what it must to be a contender. That doesn’t mean it will be tossing money at risky players.
“We’re going to be disciplined and if the evaluation gets beyond where we think they belong, then we’ll move to the next guy,” Lindsey said. “If that means being more patient in free agency and being more value-oriented in August, so be it.”
Either way, for one of the only times in their history, the Jazz are virtually free to shop ‘til they drop.
