    It looks like this has something to do with personality. Lindsey was a straight shooter but aloof although very professional. It looks like the Jazz want a "nuts and bolts" guy who can relate down in the tranches. Right away, it looks like he is more personable and relates well to Donovan. ---It is all a matter of strategy and we'll see if this does the trick. Donovan is starting year three of a five year rookie contract. The Jazz are already on the clock. Nevertheless, good will is one thing and money is another. --- Unless the Jazz produce a winner next year with a solid squad, Donovan is toast Donovan is a solid individual and everyone loves him. Nevertheless, he wants to win. ----His background proves that even in high school. He went where he could win and also develop his personality. He is Black and Hispanic. That makes him very unique. He is amenable to staying in Utah but the Jazz have to build around him like they did with Karl.

    Yawn.......

    Dennis Lindsay did nothing last off season so if Mr. Zanik does anything it is a bonus. I think all gms have a relationship with 30 other nba teams. Seldom if ever does that parlay into getting an elite player from another team for less than market value.
