Jazz Sign Koufos   1 comment

In what will probably be the most exciting story for the Jazz this off-season, the Jazz have signed rookie Kosta Koufos to a contract. He was selected #23 overall in the draft, and is yet another “big” for the Jazz to leave on the bench/in the NBDL while playing guys that shouldn’t be playing. But that’s what the Jazz are good at…

Koufos should be playing the RMR, which starts next Friday.

DeSagana Diop… Off The List?   1 comment

Now this depends on there being a list, of course. We were given a list of potential FA targets by Ross Siler, but who knows who the Jazz are really interested in. Anyways, one of the names on that list was that of DeSagana Diop… the ex-Maverick big-man who was dealt to New Jersey this past season. If you wanted him to join the Jazz, I’m sorry, because it seems like he will be going back to Dallas.

He will reportedly receive the Mavericks’ full mid-level exception in a five-year deal.

Speights & Anderson Among 6 To Workout Sunday   1 comment

After the first workout period… one that featured many guys considered to be 2nd-rounders at best, tomorrow’s workout seems to have more 1st round potential. Oh, and me happy.

Potential Draftees & CJ Miles   2 comments

So, I decided to come up with a list of potential draftees for the Jazz. It was actually fairly easy. I came up with a list of team needs (in no particular order)…

-defensive-minded C (because it doesn’t seem like Fesenko will be ready for major minutes next year)
-low-post playing PF (for when Booze reverts to play-off form)
-pass-first PG (3rd-string guy after Hart is booted)
-D-minded wing… jump-shooting helpful (because Harpring does neither)
-jump-shooting SG that can play D (Almond does one, Brewer the other, CJ both… and he never plays)

And then I went through the profiles at NBAdraft.net (all 60 currently in the mock, plus a couple other guys) and found players that fit in the one that fits their position. And while I like the idea of getting a defensive-minded C (the whole “hack anyone attacking the hoop” strategy of J-Slo is a total pain), I have found the guy I want the Jazz to draft. But this time, it’s not a guy that’ll go top 10 (a la Corey Brewer last year). Nope, instead it’s a guy that won’t really help the D, but will help enforce a different strategy… “do what you want, we’re gonna outscore you!” I much prefer that type of strategy… especially when the team can’t play D.
