Bad news for sure. This will severely stunt his development. Potentially
missing up to nearly half a season??? Wow.That being said my guess
is we just got a few more ping pong balls. C'mon Wiggins.Its
not like this team was going to win anything anyways. Look no further than the
beat down they took on their own home court from the Clippers. Youth vs
experience. Make no mistake, you don't skip steps to becoming good in the
NBA. Oh well, train wrecks can be interesting to watch too right?
I don't think any of the other Jazz point guards are good enough to step up
and be a suitable backup. So, the Jazz will likely try and pull off a trade.If that doesn't work out, I say let Alec Burks run the point. It
would give him a lot more playing time and allow Ian Clark to step into backing
up the 2 guard position. Playing them together would also make for an athletic
and dynamic duo.
Why don't the Jazz do what they should've done in the first place? Buy
out Raul Neto's Spanish team contract and get him here to be the starting
PG. JLIII might be an okay backup but we don't need a shoot-first PG
running this team as a starter.
Wow... we may have just joined Philly as the front-runner in the Andrew Wiggins
sweepstakes. Looking forward to Trey getting back on the court and this team
continuing their growing pains, but this could be very ugly for a little bit.
Would agree to let Burks handle the point duties. If Jazz keep a fifteen man
roster the last two will be non guarenteed anyway. They would have until March 1
if they decide to let the non guarenteed guys go. This might be a win win
situation. Burks could develope much more,Burke could take the time for practice
with his left hand, shile keeping his legs in tip top shape. But say goodbye to
ROY award for Burke.
Somewhere in the world, Mo Williams just chuckled.
Why not get Jimmer? If nothing else, it will sell tickets, and he
couldn't do worse than the point guards we've had for years.
@meworkingmanI had forgotten about Raul Neto, buying out his Spanish
league contract would be a great idea. The only problem is Neto's team in
Spain (Lagun Aro) is in a rebuilding process itself and GM Dennis Lindsey
doesn't appear to be too keen on the idea of trying to lure away one of its
I can see how it plays out now.1. Jazz go 8-64 this season.2.
Jazz are rife with ping pong balls.3. Jazz win the lottery.4.
"With the first pick in the 2014 NBA draft, the Utah Jazz select Andrew
Wiggins!" - David Stern5. Wiggins tears his ACL walking up to the
stage to shake Stern's hand.
Re: Brave Sir RobinThe season has 82 games not 72.David
Stern will no longer be announcing draft picks, as he is retiring.
@ Uncle RicoI liked Mo, but he can smile all he wants. He is not a
starting PG in the NBA. He is a solid back up. He would only be a starter in a
place like Miami.
Real unfortunate for Trey. I think most Jazz fans were bracing for a down year
anyway so I hope they don't deviate from the plan. Keep developing the
young guys and hopefully Trey will still get enough time later in the year to
see what he can do. More ping pong balls is a good thing.
Tough break (pun intended) but Trey wasn't leading this team to anything
special. It hurts that he will lose 8-12 weeks of experience but he will still
get ample time to develop. As long as this isn't a sign of things to come,
the Jazz can afford this loss at this time-- better now than next season with a
lotto pick and quality FA or two.
I totally agree with a number of those posting here. There should be no debate
surrounding what the Jazz need to do....Neto is the obvious answer, and the Jazz
should do whatever is necessary to get him into camp asap.
Let operation Andrew Wiggins begin!!!
