WHAT THE !! Am I that stupid and management that smart or is it vice e verse.
They need a 3pt and a pick and pop shooter badly. This team will go no where if
someone besides Big Al and Milsap starts scoring. For the most part most of the
team will play defense, but all but 2 players turn into passers (except CJ he
will shoot it, but well you finish that statement). Maybe he is the outside
shooter we need?
Eh? Kind of a surprise move here. To me, this only makes sense if
they are going to package Jeremy Evans in a 2 for 1 trade with someone else.
For example, trade Harris and Evans for another point guard, or something like
that. Then Demarre Carroll is probably better suited to play the wing than
Evans as a back up off the bench, and probably better suited as a smallish power
forward as well.Curious to see if this guy sticks around. Or will
the Jazz waive him again in a week or two?
This definitely makes you wonder if they are thinking of trading one of their
forwards in the near future, because why else make this signing? There are
already 3 guys on the bench who get no playing time, why add another?
@deno22They made this signing because the jazz are going to have a
back to back to back soon. They need more energy when they go back to back to
back on the road and i think adding carroll can give the other players some
rest. But i agree with the others that we need to trade harris, but not evans.
Maybe add raja or even a future second round draft pick.
@NorthstarThe article says he's signed through the end of the
season.This is also making me believe the Jazz are setting up a
trade. I could see the jazz bundling up Evans or even Miles. Miles has been good
enough lately to be attractive to other teams and Jeremy has always been a
walking highlight reel. Think they'd trade off Howard? He might be good trade
bait with his contract expiring at the end of the year. Things look like they
might be getting interesting.
If this new signing is going to get any minutes on the floor at all, who will he
be taking those minutes from. It can't be Evans because he barely gets any
playing time anyway. We have Millsap, Hayward, Miles and Howard that can all
rotate in at the small forward position and I would have thought the Jazz are
content with the minutes they all get so it seems like a strange signing to add
a player at a position that doesn't seem to add to what we already have. There
must be something else going on here.
I know we all like Evans, but I think Evans, Harris, Miles are all likely on the
trade block. The question is finding a taker. I would like to see Evans stay
but if the right deal comes, you gotta make it if you are KOC.
Huh?Has to be something else in the works. I'm not sure why you
need another guy to ride the bench..we already have some guys doing that and
some others that deserve to.Me thinks some trade may be in the
works.No wonder O'Conner "was not immediately available for
comment". This makes little sense unless their is a deal in the works.I sure hope Harris is going somewhere....his head is already gone
(because it is never in the Jazz game) so I think we ought to ship his body out
of town town too.
This guy is not an outside shooter and has very limited minutes for the teams he
has played for the last few years. If the Jazz wanted a practice player or a
player to deepen their bench (as if it needs it right now), a 10 day contract
for a D-Leauge guy would make more sense. I smell a 2 or 3 for 1 or
2 trade coming down the pike (and Carroll was picked up to keep the Jazz at the
required minimum 13 players.
Like others have mentioned, this looks like a prep move to help compensate for a
loss that will shortly happen via trade. I personally would like to see devin
and big al get traded. I think big al does some good things but Favors and
Kanter can fill in nicely and it'd free up minute for evans. Harris just needs
to go. He doesn't fit in the system and at this point, I'd be happy just to see
them get a draft pick or something for him and have Watson start, Tinsley come
off the bench and have Burks be the 3rd option at PG.
Eric Maynor? Remember him. I could see Burks getting dealt. I don't want that
to happen but I think in the right situation it could happen.
A couple notable 2 guards available on the market are:1-Kevin Martin
with Houston2-Andre Iguodola with PhiladelphiaI also like
Francisco Garcia with Sacramento. Not a huge difference maker but he can shoot
the 3 and spread the floor a little bit.We have a trade exception in
our back pocket, and we could use our draft pick and if it comes down to it,
young guys like Burks and Evans. Even though we like these guys, if we could
bring in Kevin Martin, I would be all over that.
I am glad it is KOC making the deals and not some of the people commenting.
Every one thinks a trade is in the air since this acquisition makes no sense
whatsoever, I think were underestimating the stupidity of the Jazz front office.
They knew we needed outside shooting when they signed Tinsley and Howard for our
last 2 roster spots. Without a shooter or 2 there is no way we make the
I like it! I remember this guy at Mizzou, and he is tough. He will bring
toughness and defense off the bench, and its obvious that there is a trade
waiting to happen. bye bye Harris, and either CJ, Evans, or even Howard. KOC
knows what he's doin smart move.
I read a comment somewhere that its all a conspiracy..... D Will is gonna opt
out and come back! it made me smile, itd be great if it were true :) he just
took one for the team so we could get a guy like Favors, and a few draft picks.
@Bacapo, don't worry the Boo Birds made sure DWill will never want to come back.
