Dee Brown… Piston?   5 comments

Well, this is unfortunate.

Dee Brown will reportedly join the summer roster of the Pistons, according to The Detroit Free Press.

Now, I really wish the best of luck to Shorty. But this counts as “unfortunate” because I would much rather have him playing on the Jazz as the 3rd PG than seeing him with the same position on another team. Eh well… I guess if J-Slow & KOC would rather have Jason Hart on the roster, we’re going to have to live with it.

‘Sap & Miles   Leave a comment

The Jazz made 2 expected moves (the 2nd became an “expected” move after they passed on wings in the draft), picking up the option on ‘Sap’s contract and tendering a qualifying offer to CJ Miles, making him a restricted free agent. Everyone expected the ‘Sap move… the offer to CJ makes it possible for the Jazz to match any offer that CJ might attract on the FA market. Both are good moves in my opinion… let’s see what happens next.

  • The Jazz won’t be having a draft party this year. That’s just stupid, and there’s two possible reasons.
    1. The Jazz are cutting it to save money. Stupid reason, in my opinion. But they’ve decided that not doing anything big that night will save them enough money to overcome the deficit they have every year. Which won’t happen, so it’s utter bullsh**.
    2. The Jazz are going to trade their first rounder… and maybe a 2nd-rounder (or both)… for future picks, so there is no reason to have the fans show up and get that news. It wouldn’t really draw out the cheers unless they were traded for a (semi-)big-name player and not a future pick. So better to cancel the party and not get booed at.

    Either way, it’s stupid. (HT: SLC Dunk) Read the rest of this entry »

Kevin O’Connor and the Draft   Leave a comment

A lot has been made of Kevin O’Connor’s… um… “drafting skills,” especially with the fact that most of his first round picks are no longer with the Jazz. So, with the draft rapidly approaching, I decided to take a quick look at the drafting since O’Connor took over (I guess it might say something about the scouts as well). Not really a number crunching exercise… more just a “Who? When? Where? Why?” approach (yep… no “What”). Just FYI… if you’re looking for trends, 6 of the 8 drafts headed by KOC have featured a 2-guard being taken by the Jazz… and of those 6, only CJ wasn’t a 1st-round SG (he went #4 in the 2nd-round).
