    Hood and Johnson are gone. Crowder is coming. Rose is passing through or looking down as he passes over. I'm a little surprised considering the amount of playing time both got the last couple games.

    Johnson never really fit but he could score when he wanted to. I think in the long run Hood will be a lot better than Mitchell but Mitchell will be a lot cheaper for several more years. Jazz were faced with a big money payout to keep Hood. I think Johnson went to get the trade done.

    Historically Crowder is a jazz type player. Hard nosed and brings it every night.

    This trade should help the defense and rebounding but probably will hurt the offense we'll see.

    I think the trade was motivated and driven by money and a desire to have a Crowder like player, who the Jazz need going into the playoffs. Crowder may get Hood's and Johnson's minutes or Neto,
    Burk and the other Swede could get more. Again we'll see.

    Unless we are getting an all-star in return, I don't think we should make any moves. The Jazz have been playing great basketball since Rudy returned. Why would you want to mess with that?

    Making the playoffs this year, without some guy named Wayward was considered to be almost impossible at the beginning of the year, especially when the Jazz also lost their point guard from last year as well. Then to start the year, Rubio was so awful shooting that other teams began to drop off of him to double team other players. Then along came a fantastic rookie named Mitchell. Soon some oft injured players (Favors and Hood, to name a couple) began to be mentioned as potential trade material, "got well".

    Having beaten the Warriors and the Spurs recently, as well as Boston and Cleveland earlier, it appears that this Jazz squad is actually rounding into championship caliber contenders. Wouldn't it be something if this team continued to develop, and they decided to stay together? Add Mitchell into the mix, and this could be the best Jazz team ever.

    if the Jazz don't make the playoffs will be a huge disappointment
