Brian Smith(@tribjazz) and Tony Jones(@TonyAggieville) of the Salt Lake Tribune had a live video web chat today all about the Jazz. The very first question of the chat basically asked if the Jazz end up having to choose between Big Al and Millsap, who should they keep to compliment Favors? I know that there was one post within a week or so that blew up about signing Sap to an extension. Well the both of these guys said if they had to choose right now, they would pick to keep Big Al. They think his offensive abilities pair well with Favors’ defensive abilities and that Favors is more of a power forward than a center. Here is the link to their chat, you can go and listen/watch the replay:
David Locke was asked a similar question in his vokle video web chat just days ago and he mentioned that in his perfect world we would sign Sap to an extension this summer, making him more willing to come off the bench because he’s not worried about money and contract issues, then start Favors and Al next year and evaluate if they should/can keep Al at the end of next season.
Interesting stuff. To me, this is one of the biggest decisions the Jazz will have to make that will impact the future. With both of their contracts expiring next year along with Raja’s and Devin’s, there are a lot of options. Salaries will play a huge part in this as well. What do you guys think? Are the trib guys right? Or is Al’s pick and roll defense and huge contract enough to make you choose Paul?
