    To Doug10,

    I have to agree with you on Conley. His shooting would provide a boost, but I don't think it would be enough to make it worth giving up both Rubio and Favors.

    Bringing back Hayward is an interesting idea. With his apparent willingness to be a second or third scoring option, I think he could find a fit with the Jazz again.

    Wookie said, "Reality is coming to grips that small town markets will never dominate nor win a championship."

    While San Antonio is a big city, with the 7th largest population in the country, their television market is 37th. So they are a small market team. They've won 5 NBA championships since 1999. Just sayin'.

    @wookie

    No, if you want to hurt the NBA, the way to do that is to turn off your television. The vast majority of NBA revenue comes from TV contracts. Ticket sales are barely a rounding error.

    Other than that, you're correct.

    Conley doesn't do enough for the Jazz vs the cost, and the Jazz holding their cards close to their chest doesn't really fly as the day they inquired about Conley it was all over the internet.

    Jazz have enough money, they offered 30 mil to Hayward, they still have funds to spend to get better. In all honesty Hayward is not being used on the Celtics and Ainge should be happy to trade him, he is not used, he knows the Jazz system, and would be accepted back onto the team.

    Jabari is not great but take a running flier on him. Bulls don't let him start so he comes off the bench and is still the team high scorer. His team mates love him, he is young and next season will be a bargain if the Jazz still like him. Instant offense

    Jazz could go after Troy Daniels who has a 5 year average of 40% from 3 point land,
    Wayne Ellington still has valuable minutes to give as does Patrick Patterson. All three of these players can be had for not very much and can add instant offense and it doesn't cost the Jazz the chemistry or Favors or Rubio.

    Reality is coming to grips that small town markets will never dominate nor win a championship. Why spend money on going to the games. If fans would wisen up and stop going it would force a salary cap and more parity. As for now, big markets equals big rewardss. Stop buying tickets. Your team will never win. Go to the Utes or the Cougars or Aggies. Invest in your local athletes and schools.

    I don't see how Conley compliments Mitchell, but we'll see! And the above post about Anthony Davis being the next Dwight Howards is bonkers. Howard went to the NBA Finals with a so-so Magic squad. Davis with Lebron is going to be incredible if it ever happens.

    Anthony Davis is the second coming of Dwight Howard. Losing followed him everywhere he went. (Like Carmelo Anthony)
    He is the opposite of LeBron, who makes his teams winners. LeBron and Davis together is likely a losing team.
    The jazz have few good options. It's too bad they didn't keep Rose when they got him and cut him.
