@CJ Miles

I don't get it either.

By the way, how do you figure the Jazz just got better? Do you know something about this kid that Maverick and I don't? His numbers in the D-league are good, but that doesn't always translate to the NBA. Any information you can provide would be appreciated.

I like the move. Don't overpay someone who isn't going to play or to a vet who will take time from our developing players. The Jazz need to keep cap space and flexibility to keep their core together.

Bost won't play a single minute this year unless there are a number of injuries to our guards.

I was being sarcastic. Lindsey has done nothing other than draft the best player available in the draft. His signing of players and free agents shows me he doesn't know what he is doing when it comes to improving the team. It's time to start winning and stop making excuses. If the GM knows his team is young, go out and sign some veterans to help improve the team now. Lindsey is just wasting money on nothing. Signing an unknown from the college ranks is a better pick up than this kid who no-one else wants or wanted.

Also, the Jazz need more bigs and less smalls. Why sign another guard?

Bost should stay with the Stampede. If a point guard gets brought in I would hope it would be Neto. Raul could be the best of the Jazz point guards even though he is not actually on the team. He looks very impressive on the pick and roll and is a pass first point guard who can shoot it when he has to. Trey needs to up his game if he wants to hold on to his spot on the team.

Meanwhile, Raul Neto just played against the best in the world. I wonder how that went....

Another cost cutting move using the philosophy that you can lose with low cost players just as easy as you can with overpriced players. The Jazz are on the road to nowhere with Greg Miller at the wheel.

Don't sell Bost short. He is an athlete that can hold his own with any with any one or two in the NBA. He was a ball hog at Mississippi State. Maybe the last couple of years has improved his willingness to distribute the ball.

Lindsey and Snyder have a plan and know what they are doing. Barring injuries, Jazz will win this year.

TerryHaines:

I agree. There are too many "arm chair quarterbacks" posting on this article. Give the Jazz a chance. Give Snyder a chance to show what he as a coach and his guys can do. I am excited about this year. I do agree that the Jazz ought to bring in Neto at some point. I would like to see him and Dante Exum play tandem at PG & SG. I believe they would be unstoppable.

My feeling is that the Jazz have a reason for each move they make, and it is ultimately to make the team better. It looks like Bost and Cooley, the most recent to sign, are players who could add toughness and attitude to the mix in training camp... it has seemed to me something needs to rile players like Gordon Heywood to up their game, shake 'em up, challenge them. Maybe Bost and Cooley, et all can make the others better players.

I doubt Boat will play much, unless there are significant injuries to our other guards. On the other hand, this is the NBA; injuries happen. And Bost can play.

I doubt Boat will play either. He's a floater.
