I know everyone is ready to fire Corbin, slaughter individual players for recent performances, and question the front office, but I think we need to be a little patient during this transition year. Some say we’ve been patient long enough….I get that. But we’ve got great players to build around for the future. There is a reason that the FO has signed everyone to expiring contracts this year. This is a transition year, with a bunch of expiring contracts providing a stop-gap until we fully turn the reins over to Hayward, Burks, Kanter, and Favors, who really are the players of the future. I would fully expect to see at least 3 of the 4 of them starting next year. I believe Kanter is an all star some day. I think Hayward will be there too. We need a PG and some veterans off the bench. And we need these players to get some time playing together. By time, I don’t mean a month or two…..but multiple years of playing and leading the show for the Jazz organization. That’s how championship franchises are built. Even the dream team of the Heat needed two full seasons together before winning a championship. And the longevity of the Spurs can’t be overstated.
Jazz FO has a big summer coming up. Who they get at PG is HUGE! I don’t know if they’ll do it through the draft, FA, trade, or a combination, but the decision they make at this position is a very big one. It would be nice to have someone long term that can grow with the rest of the team for the future.
Next year is when the clock really starts ticking. Things are going to start happening and the Jazz will hopefully be on a path to improve year after year.
