There isn't much talent in this draft but we should draft either a back up point
in a Ty lawson or jeff teague (his best case scenario is a better shooting monta
ellis) or a swingman in either terrence Williams or Sam young. Matt isn't
getting any younger and ak might leave after this season.
That AK leaves. He's worthless. Most overpaid player in the NBA. Harpring is
already over the hill.
at 20. Hansbrough, Gibson, and Johnson would be good picks at 20. They are
average PFs in a normal year. I am not real high on Young. He is only 6'6". I do
not care how tough he is supposed to be. Johnson and Hansbrough are also
supposed to be tough. I care about how well he can play. Terrence
Williams may also be a good pick but I suspect that PF is a more important need
this year.I doubt if Knight will be back (to many fans do not like
his lack of shooting. Price is supposed to be mad and won't come back. I am not
sure any other team will pick him up so he might be back. Price is
good for a few minutes most nights but he is to erratic to run the team for long
stretches. If he has a good shooting night he is an okay point. If he is off his
shot he is a really bad PG.The Jazz will pick up a vet PG and maybe
a rookie for 3rd string.
Package some of these tissue type players we have, along with their ego's and
get some veteran toughness and desire!
I heard a rumor that the jazz asked washington if they were willing to talk
about giving up their pick. this wont happen but it might be good for the jazz,
i dont think they have the guts to pull it off. Trade Boozer, CJ Miles and your
pick at 20 and possibly your first round next year to washington for Antwan
Jamison and the fith pick if and only if you can draft James Harden and possibly
a second round pick. I know it will never happen but that would make the jazz a
lot deeper and tougher.
I just got some news on ESPN about Minnesota taking Washington's pick - Jamison
and the 5th pick wouldn't have been worth it in this week draft. James Harden
seems like he'd fit right in being an unselfish player and people overlooking
his skills. He's very productive. We'll get a great player at 20; someone will
slip like a power forward. If not we'll get a decent point guard to backup
Darin - maybe Teague.
