We want Ante Tomic...glad Rudy Gobert is on our team, but Tomic must be better
than Gobert, right? What's the holdup?
As the previous comment asked, where is not only Carmen San Diego but Ante
Tomic? "Christmas" is on the summer roster so all is not lost. There
is also a 6'11" free agent from what appears to be Serbia going to
It could be the Tomic just doesn't want to play in the NBA, or doesn't
want to play in Utah. I'm sure the Jazz would love to have him, so it would
seem he is the roadblock here.
And the elephant in the room: When are Greg Miller and Co. going to get over
their petty grudge against the Las Vegas summer league?Are you
really continuing to punish your fans by holding games almost 2000 miles away
when there's a perfectly good set-up less than 400 miles away from your
entire fan base?With all the changes surrounding the Jazz
Organization the past few months, this would be the perfect time to announce
this change to the usual summer plans and get people excited about cruising I-15
to watch exciting young players EVERYONE is gushing over. Make it
happen, Dennis O'Lindsey.
I don't understand the fascination with Tomic -- he's not coming, and
he hasn't shown as much upside as the Jazz originally thought -- move onTiCon2 -- Maybe it would be good for the folks in Cedar City - but I
don't see many Jazz fans begging to go experience 115 degrees in Vegas to
see a few rookie league games. Only way fans flock to these things is if they
are in town. You can watch the Orlando games from the comfort of your own couch
on NBAtv. Much better than a trip to the desert.
Tyreke evans and eric bledsoe were dealt for little in return. We should have
made a deal for one of those two.
@GamerBledsoe...probably yes...Tyreke...No...Tyreke needs the ball
in his hands to be effective...when they tried to move him to the 3...his stats
took a dip and his over all play took a dive...its either the 1 or 2 for
him...and he needs the ball 90% of the time to be effective...you dont get to
see guys who can play off the ball anymore...Durant is can playoff the
ball...but most of the guys...they need the ball in their hands...you kinda miss
guys like Chris Mullin...knows where to go on offense for an easy look...playing
off the ball...and ray allen...running through screens...catch and shoot...
Looking at the list of names,it looks like the Jazz aren't
Who is "tomic?"
@UU32I have been watching Tomic's games from Barcelona...he has
quick feet...and has a soft touch...does not play above the rim and would prefer
layups over dunks...excellent passer for a big man and has decent back to the
basket skills...he is and can be...a poor man's Pau Gasol...will he be an
all-star?...probably not...but he is good...but i do agree that he might not
come...so why not use his rights as trade bait...i'm sure a team would like
to have him...
@Kakashi: I also would like to see Tomic rights used in a trade. He ain't
commin to the NBA.They also have two other "dead" players rights to use.
Use them to get Fredette. Sac wants him gone and he might be ok on a different
team. He would be a much better backup PG than Tinsley/Watson..
