Good idea. It's called networking and "word of mouth" may end up
mining a hidden gem whether it be domestic or foreign.
Yeah I think this is a good strategy. It is surprising sometimes, even with all
the scouts and technology that players without a lot of notoriety can become
good NBA players. We should all remember Wes Mathews that wasn't drafted
but the Jazz brought in to camp, and look at him now. We need a lot of players
and maybe this will bring 1 or 2 that can help this team.
I agree with the above comments. Being in a small NBA market, the Jazz have to
do their work like this to keep up with the bigger markets. San Antonio has
been doing this successfully for years.By the way, the article
mentions DeMarre Carroll. Hopefully the Jazz management will re-sign him. He
is one of those gems referred to above, who isn't afraid to mix it up, do
the dirty work, etc. And the guy has a tremendous attitude.Go Jazz!
this is how the Spurs got Gary Neal...and it seems Lindsey is implementing the
same strategy of getting good role players at a budget price...
