    Mo's made his decision. He's in! Sad he's excited to be coming back to the Utah Jazz! In other news the Jazz have decided to pick up the option on Demarre Caroll. So he's in too! Good news!

    I'm okay with Williams but I was hoping for more from the trade exemption.

    Ultimately we will have traded a semi-functional Okur for Williams.

    I'm not entirely sure that Williams is better than Harris. There are a lot of similarities; both are former all-stars a few years removed from their prime (I would argue Harris had a higher peak than Williams), their career statistics are eerily similar, both would earn $8.5M in the final year of their contract, they were born within a few months of each other. Williams is a better 3 point shooter but Harris shoots better inside the line. Harris is also a better passer but that could be our system.

    All that adds to my opinion that Williams will not be an upgrade from Harris. Harris probably has higher trade value, so maybe we're working on a deal for him. Little value in having near identical PG's.

    I remember being disappointed when Mo Williams left before. He's an all-around type point guard with better than decent passing skills. He is a high-energy guy who can fire up his teammates. He has a pretty good mid-range jump shot. Hope the Jazz get him.

    "He'd also give Utah another outside threat" Another outside threat? Wait... who is there outside threat now? Anyway, welcome back, Mo.
