Posted by: Ray on June 22nd, 2011The author's views are entirely his or her own and may not reflect the views of the Utah Jazz.
It’s being acknowledged that this year’s draft is not a very strong one. A strong one, in the sense, that any team will find that one player around which a championship team will be built. Thus, is it worth #3 pick money for the Jazz to select anyone, even Jimmer?
Therefore, perhaps the Jazz ought to consider trading the #3 pick for a reasonably established player, e.g., Tony Parker, and round two pick(s). In other words, this may be a good year to find potentially strong role players.
In the meanwhile, hopefully, Gordon Hayward and Derrick Favors are potentially two great pieces that provide a strong foundation. Naturally, it’s up to them as to how they are developing and devoting their efforts to being B+ or A- players.
Bottom line for the Jazz, it’s rebuilding time—develop the young players to their fullest potential; get rid of those who are just holding a spot; find veterans who can help the young players to develop. Then, wait for upcoming drafts to find the A or A+ players around the team can be built.
Anyway, just another perspective to ponder.
