I sincerely hope this kid can help himself and the Jazz soon with his athletic
ability. Sometimes ,though,the body rejects putting on weight without depriving
it somewhere else. I think the guy just needs to keep on playing the way he
basically has been ,and hope he cane get some extra muscle in the offseason in
the weight room without losing his agility.
If Evans truly can play like he shows hints of. I don't see the need to bring
Brewer back. This guy appears to be the same type of player pretty much.
Sounds like he would be better than Brewer.At this point, I say give
him a shot. He might turn out to be another incredible 2nd round pick.Let's all hope so. The Jazz need something to right.
If Sloan gushes over him and if he really is similar to Prince then maybe he
will work out. If he can shoot the Jazz have 2 new SFs and AK can play PF. The Jazz need the right C. FesKoufos could be the right C is they
developed by magic. I do not believe in magic but Koufos was shooting better as
he got more playing time. The Jazz are planing on playing some type
of small ball. It will be very interesting to see how Sloan morphs his flex to
do that. I think they need outside shooting now. Then as they ad or
develop the inside bigs they will contend. You can beat LA by
running and with outside shooting BUT you have to have sufficient rebounding.
Let's hope he's another diamond in the rough for the Jazz. I can see next
year's team being a lot like the team the year after Stockton and Malone left.
They'll be a gritty bunch of overachievers who will fight hard to make the
playoffs, but will probably come up a little short. I'll be cheering them on and
will be happy as long as they leave it all on the court.
He looks like he can put on weight to me, if he doesn't i don't think he's going
to stick in the league, but it looks like he earned himself a shot, he had some
nice passes this week, he needs to improve on help defense. His shoulders are
pretty wide so I can see him adding a bit of weight and keeping his athleticism.
I liked what I saw the last couple of games but he really needs to be able to
shoot and so far he hasn't shown that he can. I'm hoping he works hard these
next 2or3 months and comes back confident in his shooting because I like alot of
things about him. If he can develop a consistant shot, he will be the ideal 3
man, long, athletic, hard worker, but he needs to be able to shoot from outside
enough to keep the defenses honest.
"Sounds like he would be better than Brewer." ANYONE would be better than
Brewer. As a long-time (20+ years) Jazz fan, I was very happy when the Jazz
traded away Ronnie last year. Ronnie was a nice guy but horribly inconsistent.
Hope the Jazz don't bring him back (worse than bringing Ostertag back).
It was hard to get a grip on who was stepping up the way coaching staff was
wasting time looking at players who have no chance to stick with Jazz but I
liked what I saw with Evans and Hayward and that was about it. Gaines is a nice
player and could take Price's spot if he could make free throws but if he can't
he will be back in d-league.
Whatever happened to Tadija Dragicevic? He was the one I was looking forward to
why put on weight? every one said he is too skinny look at durrant about the
same and does preety good they will try to bulk him up slow him down and wont
jump as high. sounds like they can fix him right up.
Re Louisiana:Because Durrant, as skinny as he is, is listed as
230lbs and Prince is listed as 215lbs. He needs to put on weight, the kid makes
AK (225lbs) look like the hulk.
It was a surprise to everyone this kid was even drafted. He has a great
attitude.If he works hard he could be the Sap of the 2010 draft.. We have about
two months before training camp opens. Time for some conditioning for ALL the
players. That is the Key to the season. Lets go Evans..
Jeremy Evans is By far the Best leaper in the NBA. I was sitting courtside in
Orlando when i seen him Out Jump 4 of the sixers players in the paint to Tap the
ball in for the Jazz, the kid will be a great Help for the Jaz he is a Shot
blocker and Rebounder he also plays some Good defense Aginst small forwards and
power forwards he even took a charge playing the center. he will be great for
the Jazz he can shot the ball pretty good as well. Great Job in orlando Jeremy
evans Welcome to Salt lake
6'9" with 7'6" wingspan, amazing.....I can't imagine the trainer and
nutritionist were not asked at his workout.....impossible to miss his
frame...."can you put 25-30 pounds on this guy?". Could be a steal. Well worth
I love to have players with alot of upside and I think Evans is that kind of a
player. Scout28, you said he shot the ball pretty good, when did you see
him shoot? If he can become a good and consistent shooter, he will be a
steal.Looking forward to his development.
Definite potential, however the jazz do NOT need potential next season, they
need production. Minus Booz and Korver, we're going to be hurting for actual
Next year(2010-2011)....I've just about written it off. The year after has some
hope, though. Ante Tomic, hopefully, another good draft, a year for these young
guys to develop, and hopefully some CAP space. I don't see how the Jazz can get
substantially better in 2010-2011. 2011-2012 is good enough for me. Williams
must have a very good team arround him by the end of 2011-2012 season.
If we lose Mathews we could make a deal with the T Wolves and pick up Al
Jefferson, and sign Shannon Brown for MLE. We have to do something because this
line up wont win a lot of games, let alone Playoff series.PG=D-Will,
R.Price,Gaines?SG=CJMiles,Hayward?OJ?SF=AK,Evans?PF=Milsap,Koufus?C=Okur,Fes?I will always cheer for my team,
but I dont want to be the fan sitting in the stands mid season with a paper bag
over my head with two eye holes, hiding my face in shame. Seriously, this roster
makes me worry. Actually I wont pay to see this team. I will watch on TV and
save my money just like the Millers are doing. SAVING MONEY. If the Jazz are
rebuilding I hope they get some value for DWILL, because All stars need other
All stars, and the Jazz dont have any one else that is even close to being an
All star. And AK was an All Star 2003-2004 season after stockton and Malone were
gone and the Jazz missed the Play offs that year.
Bill..is the wingspan seriously 7'6"? where'd you get that?
@ - bald eagle - are joking about brewer. He is WAY BETTER Than the slouch
MILES.@ - Jazz-Nation - If this is your idea of a roster I think you
missed where some of these guys play.PG=D-Will, R.Price,Gaines?SG=CJMiles,Hayward?OJ?SF=AK,Evans?PF=Milsap,Koufus?C=Okur,Fes?PG=D-Will, R.Price, Gaines?SG=Miles, Jeffers?SF=AK, Hayward, Evans? PF=Okur, Milsap, Evans?C=Koufus, FesWhat we need is to get some help in the middle. Okur is a better PW than C.If we could keep Protland from hosing us over by overpricing our restricted
FA's so we have to lose any cap space we might have to get even better players,
or letting them go and losing them to even another team because Portland just
wants trade fodder. Portland wants to use every off court method to ruin our
team instead of letting the players decide it on the court.Its going to be
an intersting 3 months.
