    Good for D.G. The season will soon start to wind down with maybe 25 games left. The Jazz have some decisions to make. I don't understand the issue with Williams. The Jazz want to sign him to a multi year contract. He always had potential as an original high draft pick. However, he just isn't producing. The Jazz could have gotten value for him at the trade deadline which included about a number 20 draft choice. I don't understand why the Jazz didn't take it.

    I like Garretts size as well. There are multiple PGs that we have faced already that were just abusing Trey and you put Garrett in and instantly the defensive outlook changes.

    Treys height is a problem. Because he is so short he doesn't hardly ever penetrate and dish the ball which is a MAJOR issue since that really is a PGs primary duty...to break down a defense. He virtually never draws a shooting foul. Why? He is constantly shooting jumpers from waaaaaaaay outside. Big issue.

    Trey can shoot some clutch shots from deep but you will notice...they are always from deep. He has some nice skills but Burke has some glaring problems which leaves some big question marks in my mind of whether he is really the answer long term.

    Garrett is a pretty decent backup because of his size and ability to defend. Of course his shooting is better than Tinsley so what is not to like;)
