I like this signing. Especially if it means CJ is gone for good. I think Foye, Hayward, and Burks makes us pretty deep at the 2 spot. I expect this will mean Hayward spends significant time splitting the 3 spot with Marvin Williams.

Not sure I like this pick up. Sure he is a solid player but what about Burks? Foye started last year and likely wants to continue starting. Just not sure what the Jazz rotation looks like. Of course this does add depth and potentially makes the Jazz 2nd unit much better. I'd like to see some young talent developed and given more playing time though. So here are my 2 deep chart. Guess it looks pretty good especially after our early exit last year.

PG-Mo Williams/Watson

With Foye, Milsap, and Hayward being the anchors for the 2nd team we should be improved. With Burks and Favors getting the startinf nod we develop the young future of the Jazz and add height and quickness to the team. Should be a fun season!

i doubt Burks starting...knowing that Corbin favors the older vets more...and i hate to admit it...but yeah...i guess Hayward would be coming off the bench...but who knows...he did get an invite to the US Select team...and i am sure there are a lot of takers if he is a free agent...let's just hope we could be competitive...knowing the fact that golden state's lineup right now is pretty good...

This is great news! Did I hear someone say "championship?"

I hope this helps. It would be nice to see the Jazz higher than 8th seed in the playoffs.

DARN! I was hoping we'd trade Favors for the jimmer. Until the jimmer returns to the chosen land the Jazz will never win a NC.

This is a solid signing for the Jazz. I got a peek at Gordon Hayward yesterday and all I can say is that Jazz fans are in for a sweet surprise. G-Man has put on 15-20 lbs. of pure muscle. He has been hitting the weights like he's hungry to take it to the next level!

"This is great news! Did I hear someone say "championship?"

Yeah...someone in Miami.

If you think Randy Foye turns the Jazz into a championship contender then you are truly delusional. Jazz are a playoff 7-seed at best.

re: winglish

Uh, I don't think so. I heard a sports radio with Hayward maybe 30 days ago and at that point he had said he was taking a break and not even working out.

So he put on 15-20 lbs in a month? We all wish for that but very unlikely and physiolocically probably impossible. Hopefully he did hit the weights hard though prior to Select camp and toned/bulked up some. He would likely need roids to put on that much muscle in that short of time.

He better be hitting the weights though because the Jazz did not sign Foye for that much money to ride the bench.

Burkes playing time just took a hit.

What? Burkes starting? This is not the summer league.

Burkes for certain won't have a chance to start now with Foye coming.

What a joke. The Jazz have taken all players that no one wants and paying good money for them. Instead of building a future, the Jazz are now the home for all the geriatrics in the NBA. Maybe the Millers should build a rest home next to the Energy Solutions Arena to house the players they are acquiring. I am sure the Clippers are excited to send their bad contracts to Utah.

to hedgehog...
Favors for the Jimmer? What? r u crazy? Jimmer...local hero, but not for the NBA

Provo, , UT

Hedgehog was being sarcastic. He's a known BYU hater, oh well. No one has even mentioned Jimmer here but he feels the need to bash.

@coleman51 so who did you want them to get such cry babies

Orem, UT

To King Black: I have no idea what you are talking about. I wanted to see the Jazz build a future with young, athletic players primarily through the draft. At least, get good young athletic players through trades. That's precisely what Oklahoma City did even though they were bad for a few seasons. The players we are acquiring are old players no one in the NBA wants and are not competitive with the younger players coming up. The Jazz have essentially purchased mediocrity during this off-season.

Provo, UT

Just watch guys. This acquirement means KOC is brewing something big. I know we can't trade Foye for a while. We still have awkwardness in what the future with our bigs. So this means we're going to trade 2-3 guys aways, which may include the GSW pick and get something we'll all be grateful for.

And people like you still seem to ignore that Utah has how many young players on their team how many..... and you want more I mean you say you want them to have more minutes ok thats reasonable but then get mad when they get more veterans on the team because you complain that they will take minutes away from the young players well what will happen when you have a team full of young players the same thing when its mixed full of young and older players their will be younger guys still not getting time to play so wheres is the logic in that way to want to run a team.

King Black
Paso Robles, CA

You act as if older players can still not play I mean Foye stats were pretty good last year, I mean besides OKC what other team has a bunch of high draft picks and made it far in the playoffs thats a pretty easy answer but yet you want the Jazz to follow a one trick pony trend that has only really worked for one team and ignore what seems to work for just about all other good teams.

Why. Why! Why? Why:

and you know dang very well what im talking about your crying like a baby because something didnt go your way. I mean what young athletic talent did you want them to get.. I mean as if the Williams from Atlanta isnt athletic and he isnt old either. But thats right you want specific demands young and athletic(YaA) so once again tell me what young athletic personnel was just sitting out there for Utah to trade for worth giving up somebody big for because if a trade is made it better be someone close to what we give up for. oo YaA does not equal instant goodness once the ball is in the air as evident in CJ miles or all those other teams that lived in the realms of high draft picks.
