8.5 million is a little steep for a backup
I was hoping Mo stayed years ago, but he left when the Jazz wouldn't match
an offer. Now, with Trey Burke here and none of us sure how Mo comes back from
his hand injury, I'm not sure it is a good idea to sign him. I would rather
the Jazz re-sign Jamaal Tinsley, who is a true point guard, to help teach T.B.
By next year, T.B. should have a good idea what's going on and Raul Neto
should be here, too. I like the idea of re-signing DeMarre Carroll, though.
No one is sure if Mo is going to be more injury prone now and whether his hand
is completely healed. I would prefer that the Jazz re-sign Jamaal Tinsley to
tutor Trey Burke. For one thing, Jamaal is a pure point guard...Burke
doesn't need a lot of help scoring...he already is quite adept at that. I
would like to see DeMarre Carroll re-signed also. Good luck to Mo, though, if he
leaves. He is a warrior.
I agree that 8.5 million for a back-up with no upside and no future will help
the Jazz. If they could pick up a younger, experienced player through free
agency, it might be worth their money.
i'd rather sign Jose Calderon...
Let's hope Mo plays in Utah next year..., Burke talking about becoming an
All-Star worries me since he hasn't even played an NBA game yet.
Jazz pursuing Knicks Chris Copeland says hoopshyperumors.The dude
can flat out shoot/fill it from deep. Ridiculous 3pt shooting %'s. You put he and Foye in the same lineup and Favors/Kantor would have alot
of room to work down low. I'm not sure we need Mo Williams to
teach Burke how to gun and shoot in that order. If Burke needs mentoring I
think you want emphasis on decision making and distributing the ball which
Tinsley could provide. Tinsley can't shoot a lick but Burke already can do
