Yeah, Plumlee would underwhelm me at #14, but it's realistic that Dallas could take Schroeder at #13 and then there's no point guard there.  So go big and take Larkin at #21.  If Schroeder or MCW is there at #14, I see them going there, and then at #21, the Jazz go big with Gobert or Noguiera, or go wing with Saric or Franklin or Crabbe.

I remember a few years ago, I think during Deron's rookie year, where ESPN dedicated a segment to the Jazz defense, because the previous night, they were losing by 20 and came back with this incredible 22-0 run or something like that, where they stopped the other team for 16 or 17 straight possessions.  AK was the anchor, and it was mostly bench guys, but it was pretty cool to watch.  Maybe it was during the 42-40 season.

 @CanadianBraeden I think that's most likely. Millsap came closest after Boozer left and D-Will was still here. But outside a free agency coup, I think their best chance is Hayward, Favors or Kanter stepping up. Probably Hayward.

The Jazz have gone two seasons without a player in the All-Star game.  I don't think they've ever gone three years in a row. Only franchises like the Kings and the Bobcats go three years in a row.

Amar's right about MPG to put guys on track for becoming stars. There's no good reason for Hayward to be getting fewer minutes this year compared to last, and Favors is still way behind what he should be getting.

"This Jazz team has enough potential already – Derrick Favors, Enes Kanter, Alec Burks, and Gordon Hayward all represent the potential future for Utah. This team doesn’t need more potential; this team needs some solid veterans that know the game of basketball" - like the starting lineup? -  "and know how to win in the NBA." Ah, there's the rub.

A 6'7" power forward putting up 15 and 7 is not a max-money player.  Maybe a year or two ago, but I really think teams are going to be smarter with their money from here on out. If anyone offers him more than $10 million a year, the Jazz have to let him walk.

I like that first Denver deal. Hard to see Denver doing it. Then the Jazz would have cut/waive Bell and Murphy to make roster room.

Maybe it was sneaky strategy on Ty's part to put Foye on Kobe in the end.  Get him past 30 points and keep his other teammates from getting involved.  4 dimensional chess.

Two or three games a year, the refs screw the Jazz.  This was the first. I don't understand how Dick Bavetta still has a job as a referee.  Palace guard, maybe.
