    Dustin I agree with most everything you said about Milsap except that he's untradeable. Remember he did sign with Portland before the Jazz matched so we know he will go where the money is. we are only guaranteed to have him one more year after this unless we break the bank to get him. Also the upside on Favors is absolutely huge and he is becoming less and less happy with his 15 minutes a game.

    Shaybo, the only player who should be completely untouchable on the Jazz's roster is Milsap. This is a man who gives everything every minute of every night. Plus he comes back every season with a new set of skills that he has been working on. There are very few players in the league with his kind of poise, humility, and work ethic. I wouldn't trade him for anyone, even if it were Dwight Howard, or LeBron James. Augustin would be great, but I would rather trade Harris, Bell, CJ, or a number of other players before Milsap.

    Seems to me that we always lost to teams when they get hot from three-point land. Our guards are too slow/lazy/unskilled to guard them on the drive and the perimeter at the same time. That being said, I think we still have goo interior defense, and that will get us through a lot of games.

    People are talking about trading Harris, but I'm not sure that is the best solution unless it is a really obvious improvement. Rumors about Mo Williams being traded to the Jazz don't really excite me because Mo seems like the same type of player that Harris is. I think we should wait this season out, and let the team develop. The last thing these young guys need is a shake-up to the roster. I would support a trade only if we started going on a major losing streak.

    @JBQ. I agree and Jazz should go after Charlotte's Augustin, a multi-skillset point guard. They have him and Kemba and might give him up for Milsap.

    If you look at the schedule for February, the Jazz could very easily go 1 for 15. They have 9 games on the road and 5 of their home games are against the likes of the Lakers and Clippers. The Jazz are playing for the future and on March 1, they should know what that future is and that future better include a good young point guard. The Mavericks are really "up tempo". On defense, they box out. I am happy to see where Kanter had a good game. Millsap continues to play great.
