Welcome back Mo!
"He'd also give Utah another outside threat" Another outside
threat? Wait... who is there outside threat now? Anyway, welcome back, Mo.
I remember being disappointed when Mo Williams left before. He's an
all-around type point guard with better than decent passing skills. He is a
high-energy guy who can fire up his teammates. He has a pretty good mid-range
jump shot. Hope the Jazz get him.
I'm okay with Williams but I was hoping for more from the trade exemption.
Ultimately we will have traded a semi-functional Okur for Williams.
I'm not entirely sure that Williams is better than Harris.
There are a lot of similarities; both are former all-stars a few years removed
from their prime (I would argue Harris had a higher peak than Williams), their
career statistics are eerily similar, both would earn $8.5M in the final year of
their contract, they were born within a few months of each other. Williams is a
better 3 point shooter but Harris shoots better inside the line. Harris is also
a better passer but that could be our system.All that adds to my
opinion that Williams will not be an upgrade from Harris. Harris probably has
higher trade value, so maybe we're working on a deal for him. Little value
in having near identical PG's.
Mo's made his decision. He's in! Sad he's excited to be coming
back to the Utah Jazz! In other news the Jazz have decided to pick up the option
on Demarre Caroll. So he's in too! Good news!

Sorry,one little i changed the meaning of that sentence quite a bit. Go Mo!
