    Both Favors and the nervous Kanter are the "people's choice". They are the new kids on the block. I would like to see Karl Malone work out with them. It is obvious that Millsap and Jefferson are expendable. They both could bring some bargaining chips. Harris is not the guard of the future. I would like to see the Jazz keep an eye on Bradley Beal of Florida (Gatorade HS Player of the Year from St. Louis Chaminade as is David Lee). He will be "one and done". If they could be assured of his draft, which they can't because of the lottery, they should trade half the team for his rights to go with the two new kids on the block.

    Kanter will take time to learn and feel comfortable out there but he will prove a good pick, he's big, physical and has some skills. Favors needs to assert himself more and more, we need his defense. Hayward could end up being our most important player, he has a great feel for the game, he see the floor, passes well, puts the ball on the floor and creates for himself and others, IMO he needs to get 35 plus minutes per game. I'm hoping CJ proves he can be consistent this yr , he has a different attitude from what I can see and hopefully that will translate into a more consistent and better player, he has the skills/tools to be good. If Harris can be the leader we need and shoot well from outside we may be OK, winning this yr will probably be difficult but competing is the most important thing, youngs need to get time so they can develop.

    One more thing. Memo is limber, it was great to see him stretch out. And he ran the floor pretty well and seemed agile. That was good to see.

    I saw Favors just manhandle Kanter. That was an awesome clash of titans. Kanter was completely out of gas (and fumes)at the end. Hayward made some really athletic, explosive moves, he's quicker than you might think when he explodes. Millsap, Howard, and Big Al didn't play at all.
