"Hey emery your[sic] wasting your time trying to play in the NBA."

Hey uuby, you're wasting your time with your ill advised jealous "advice". Emery will be making a 6-figure income playing basketball in Europe next year.

Emery is a great prospect for the Euro leagues. He'll likely get invited to an NBA training camp or two and then move overseas. When the NBA scouts are looking at college players age can a deterrent. At 24 (25 in June) he'd be one of the oldest rookies in the league.

There are dozens of players with his size, skill, defensive ability, and heart that never even make it to a training camp. I hope he does well in Europe.

@LKA. Not only is your spelling bad but your inability to follow the NBA and players weekly and monthly lack for knowledge also. What the Jazz need are rugged defenders and rebounders and those 2 I mentioned have more guts in their little finger than 80% of the current Jazz players ever thought of having! Just saying though.

first of all...why would you want another 4 in Chris Wilcox? plus wilcox is pretty old...you could get at least 2-3 more years...but he would be behind in the depth chart...Jerebko on the other hand is a different story....Jerebko is pretty good...but what we lack...is wing/perimeter defenders...and good defensive rotations...and one solid C to anchor the D...also...we would need shooters...i know its hard for you to trust rookies...i dont know why...everyone starts as a rookie...i guess when Manu Ginobili came into the league...you thought nothing of him...and yet...he is the key player on San Antonio right now...without him...they would have a hard time winning...be open minded...I bet you also think Al Horford was nothing when he was a rookie...He averaged almost a double double each game on limited minutes replacing a solid vet...on his rookie year...come on...dozens of examples of not superstar players who played really well since the first day they were drafted
