Jabari Parker could be what we’ve been looking for. It comes to no surprise to anyone that Utah isn’t a prime location for many players. It’s why we’re never in the talks for big Free Agents or major trades. It’s why the Jazz game plan has always been build through the draft and acquire strong roll players through various trades. Though even when we acquire a star keeping them is very difficult (Deron Williams).
Jabari Parker could be are big star. Those who don’t know who is Jabari Parker is he is along side the Canadian Andrew Wiggins our the most prospected high school recruits since LeBron James. What some people don’t know is that Jabari Parker was also raised as a Mormon and before declaring for Duke had BYU on his short list for Universities. What I’m saying is this is a super star player who could have a strong attraction to playing in the great State of Utah.
There is a lot to indicate that the Jazz already have this in mind. I’ve come across several articles saying Dennis Lindsey has said the Jazz might look to take a step back next season in hopes of getting a better lottery pick. Also saying he would be perfectly okay allowing Al & Paul to walk at the end of this season. Now this is most likely paraphrased or taken out of context but it is pretty interesting. If the Jazz do let both players ago I hope it’s with sign & trade conditions for 1st round draft picks to help enable our chances.
Though I disdain intentionally losing to get a better draft pick I’d be fine with the Jazz taking time to develop their young talent. Letting Paul & Al go will allow for that. Imagine a starting line up of Derrick Favors, Enes Kanter, Gordan Hayward, Alec burks and any one but Mo Williams at the point guard position. Also a more significant roll for DeMarre Carrol and Jeremy Evans. Increased minutes and experience will help build a strong support for a super star. Than when Jabari Parker comes in start him right away instead of wasting him on the bench.
What do you guys think?
