I think you should always look to improve! Until you have won a championship you
are not the best team!
The Achilles' heel this season for the Jazz has been the backup point guard
position. If the Jazz can make a deal that doesn't cost them too much,
bringing in a solid backup would greatly improve the Jazz chances at advancing
beyond the first round.My dream trade would be for Goran
DragÍc, but being the realist that I am, I realize that it's unlikely
I expect to see a small trade happen for the Jazz. As we all know, the Jazz
have been carrying too many point guards. If an reasonable offer comes in for
Shelvin Mack, I expect to see the Jazz pull the trigger on that trade.
Sorry Rock, but the very title of this article is simply all wrong.While I agree the Jazz have no pressing needs, and probably shouldn't be
making any out-going calls on the trade deadline, I would hope Dennis Lindsey
and company quickly take every single call that comes in through their
interns' desks on Thursday.The current team certainly seems to
gel really well right now. Nobody would argue that. But if another franchise
decides they want to improve their draft position and offer the Jazz a highly
favorable deal, why should they not take it?The Jazz right now are
the 6th or 7th best team in the National Basketball Association. While it's
a nice upgrade from the last half decade of Draft Lottery limbo, it should in no
way be considered adequate.If an offer comes along that could move
the organization on up, I would hope to see that offer accepted. Don't be on the "do not call list" Mr. Lindsey. Listen to, and
entertain every possibility. Crunch your numbers, do your homework, make all due
diligence... And if the results say an offer on the table makes us a better
team- pull the trigger. Make it happen.
Of course we don't always know if there are players who are demanding a
trade. Absent that, I'm guessing the Jazz will stand pat.
Hello Rock,What planet are you from?Jazz cannot go
through the playoffs with Favors half half out of an ambulance. Each time he
steps on the floor he is a defensive liability and his shot rivals Lyles. Jazz
have waited all season for something to happen....and still waiting. Now is a moment to trade as there are players moving and GMs are more willing
to look at changes. This the season.Would be nice if Jazz had Trey
Burke to trade away again but this time it will cost them a player who has
value.And need you be reminded how the last two additions to the
team have developed integral roles on the team, both Diaw and Johnson.
I think Rock is offering good advice. From the outside looking in, Burks and
Mack appear to be expendable. Don't know if you could get anything of
Because Burks has created the problem when he returned. He is rarely a part of
the offense and his defense is worse. Seems as if the cohesiveness of the team
faded as he entered the lineup. Like him and his skill set, just not his mind
