Love the Jazz, even from the heart of Ohio. Was very excited about the start of the season, team played hard and showed promise. But it’s time to get back to the PLAN. Lots of chatter about why KOC would sign the Junkyard Dog while young talent DNP. Either a trade is in the works (not likely – options are better in the off season), or we are sending youth to DLeague.
With the Jazz out of town for most of March, it’s time that Burks and Evans go to Idaho. Evans needs to prove his game is more than dunking (can he shoot and defend) and more importantly and the whole purpose of this move is to take our best athelete and see if he can play the POINT. Why not take the chance and see if Burks can become a beast and top defender (it’s all up side). He arrived at Colorado has a combo guard and grew into the SG role, but if you watched his game he was at his best with the ball in transition. Hayward can expand into the point forward role to give diversity to the offense facilitation. We can’t stand pat and allow PGs to shell us for 20+ a night.
The trade exception and Harris can wait till next year (unless we can acquire more draft chips now).
