    I am a big Villanova fan. I really like Dante. However, I would advise him to stay in school because I don't think that he is mature enough to handle the physical side of the NBA. Remember when Rubio was hurt setting a screen against Kobe? Marco was not set and Kobe (about 40 lbs. heavier) legally ran him over ending his season and almost ending his career. I believe that the hamstring problems go back to that very injury. ---- Sure, DiVincenzo is a red headed street baller from Philly. If it wasn't for Malone being a bulldog protector, Stockton wouldn't have made it either. Crowder is the only hard nosed enforcer that the Jazz have. If you check his resume', he was the very one involved with the injury to Gordon. He definitely has blood on his hands. However, that is what the Jazz have to have.---There is no doubt that Harden fouled Donovan with that big steal at the end of the game. He kneed him in the thigh. It wasn't an extremely dirty play but it was a street maneuver.---This is the NBA. There is no taking of prisoners. Donte just isn't ready.

    Too bad Bryant honed his defensive skills in byu's system. 😂

    The Jazz have always given local players an obligatory try out. Let’s not read to much into this.

    Jazz will never break their tradition of avoiding local players.

    If there is room for Stockton, you would think there would be room for Bryant, who is a much better player.

    Either way, it's a longshot for Bryant in the NBA, he could have used another year in college.
    Can't blame him for the nice pay check, even if it is in Europe.

    Bryant is a tough defender and fearless in attacking the basket. He shoots foul shots very well, and he has three point range. He would fit right in with Quin Snyder's system. Good luck to both Bryant and the Jazz.

    The Jazz do a great job with these work outs. Looking forward to what Dennis Lindsay and company come up with this time.

    Great to see the Jazz are getting after it already, by bringing in some good talent. Good they are being aggressive. That is what it will take. I think Dennis Lindsay means business this off season. Last season he did very well with great additions, including Ricky Rubio. Too bad he got hurt during the playoffs. Had this not happened, the results might have been very different.
