Best of luck to Marvin in his career path. I didn't want to see him leave the Jazz. He always seemed like a very classy guy with good basketball skills. He and Big Al should be a good combo.

Marv maintained a positive attitude and seemed to improve the entire time he was with the Jazz. As such, he was well liked by both teammates and fans.

The Jazz could've retained him for less than half the money per year they are now paying Hayward. On top of that, he seemed to contribute more consistently than Hayward had been doing... both offensively and defensively.

Anyone can seem like a big contributer if they shoot enough. But it's a combination of both shooting percentages, ppm (points per minute), rebounds, as well as assists minus turnovers that gives a bigger and more accurate picture of what players are actually contributing. Defensive tenacity is also a somewhat subjective factor that should be factored in.

I'm sorry to see Marvin Williams leaving the Jazz. He was a positive asset who gave a better ROI than some other current Jazz players. But that's just my opinion and I don't sign my name to their paychecks.
