Published: Sunday, Oct. 27 2013 4:16 p.m. MDT

Q: HOW IMPRESSIVE IS THE PROGRESS OF ROOKIE CENTER RUDY GOBERT? Next List » 5 of 5 « Prev
A: “To his (credit), he’s done a good job of listening to everything, It’s been a lot of stuff thrown at him in a short amount of time, He’s now starting to figure out how to understand what we’ve thrown at him and now how to implement it on the floor in the games and in practice. The more reps he can get in, the better off he will be at it. He’s making great strides for us, so we’re happy to see him continue to progress. …

“He’s always demonstrated that he’s a tremendous worker. He’s continued to do that. He’s putting the time in. He had a little setback when he got hurt. (But) he studied; he watched when he was not on the floor, and now it’s starting to show. He’s starting to not have to think as much about every little thing. He’s getting to his spots where now he can play. It’s good to see him make those strides right now.”

Problem is now with Tinsley on board Burke will be lucky to see the light of day when he comes back.Start Jefferson instead of Hayward and Burks same story. I have never agreed with tanking but it sure looks like it to me as long as the vets still have priority..If Jazz cannot agree to terms with Hayward trade him to Kings for Mclamore and Fredette and unprotected first rounder for 2014..Kings would do anything to rid themselves of Fredette and they would have to give up something good to land Hayward. Pull the trigger.

The question is will Corbin give Gobert plenty of meaningful game experience or will he waste his rookie season playing Biedrens. It's already obvious that Clark will have no chance to prove himself while Tinsley and Lucas neither of which figure into the Jazz long range plans take up all the minutes.
