So the Jazz trade E.M. and then say they need another PG. Why didn't they just keep him in the first place. He was doing a great job.


Who cares. They're going to add some D-league or ex-NBA player who will never leave the bench. In fact, he may even be sitting behind that bench in a suit. Maybe Loozer can give him his tailor's card.


By the looks of things the Jazz need far more than one player. Blow it up and start over.

Funny Article here...

sounds like business as usual. The hole in the Jazz dyke has grown to monumental proportions and the management does not even realize it. They are going to blow the whole business with foolish spending like the Obama administration is doing to this country to bankrupt it. I guess it is a sign of the times. Where is our leadership?


I think a significant trade is going to happen before the trade deadline. Perhaps, really soon. I sense guys are looking over their shoulders after the Maynor deal, thinking...am I going to be traded next?? I just sense with the latest string of losses that it really forces the Jazz hand to make a deal. They need to do something major to show the fans they want to improve. A trade would be the best PR move right now.

Don't get excited Jazzfans

O'Connor is going to do exactly what he always does....nothing. He will sign some DLeague slacker to a 10 day contract or bring back Brev Knight. This team has gone down the crapper quickly. Well I guess there is always the first 10 games of next year to get excited about.

Time for CHANGE!

Keep D Will, blow up the rest, (especially Memo) bad chemistry and too little defense! Time to bring in a new coach to put his own stamp on the team, not fair to leave Sloan in for one more year to reshape the team before handing it over to a new coach with a different coaching style.

BTW, New Orleans only had two road wins all year, best cure for that is playing the JAZZ!!!


Tracy McGrady needs a team to play for..... yeah right. I know, I know, KEEP DREAMING!

okay, okay

I'll do it. I'll sign a stinking contract with the Jazz. I was hoping to get to play on a "real" team, but I guess this will have to do.


Perhaps more than one??

Milsap fans...

Still think he was worth all that money, still think he is better than Boozer? The Jazz should never have paid him that kind of money.


They need to do something and quick or they wont make the playoffs. Im hoping for a big trade get Memo out of there and Miles and AK.

todd from santa ana

last night: stats show Maynor outplayed Price-again....

This is the issue:

12th man,,prediction-Jazz will wait until 1159 pm and sign the "New Dog no one has ever heard of"

Can he make one shot in 10 fans


Jazz fan

Until Sloan decides to be consistent in the rotation the Jazz will inconsistenly play. PLAY & START WES MATTHEWS, he knows how to play defense. The bleachers are going to look pretty empty until they can get their act together.

Matthews needs to go

It looks like Sloan pitting his players against each other for playing time has backfired. Everyone is out for number one! No team spirit now it's all each man for himself. At least when the rotation was consistent each player knew he would get playing time and they cheered each other on. Matthews ruined the team spirit and destroyed their winning team. Everyone wants to get rid of CJ, but it's Matthews that needs to go!


I didn't seem that defense was the problem last night. Scoring points seemed to be the problem. How is playing Matthews going to help that?

The jazz have the fewest technicals in the NBA. They just don't care enough to risk $1,000 on a technical foul. They lack passion and it shows on the court. This is why fans are booing. Getting out-hustled at home. It makes me wish I could sell my tickets- but nobody would buy them today. Need a new coach. Underachieving is a sign the coach is failing.

The FO has to try to

save the season. They can not rely on Korver getting well.

They have to open up the inside offense or they have to replace Sloan and rebuild with a new approach.

DWill has a sprained wrist.

I am not sure if the FO goes for a wing who can shoot or a back up PG. If they could get both in the same player that might be good.

The crisis is bad enough that the FO is going to have to do something to fix the bleeding. A D-leaguer is not going to fix the inside offense.

Miller can not support Sloan much longer. Another month of this and he will be forced to replace Sloan.

Juggling players may buy Sloan time but forcing bad trades will only make it worse in the long run. Integrating new players is messy in the short run.

If Sloan can not open up the inside offense he is gone.

About the only hope is to get a wing who can shoot.

That wing then has to learn the offense. However, he could just jack 3s (like CJ only hit them).

Wafer is cheap. 10 days would not hurt anything.


Sign a nobody just to fulfill the NBA rules. Tell him that he doesn't even have to come to the gym. Sign him to the minimum and let him be the waterboy.


Matthews has ruined this team,selfish,can`t shoot,and plays no defense,he should never leave the bench
