    That was to be expected; he's going to sign a one-day contract with Boston, so he can retire as a Celtic.

    Why does everyone assume this? If they field a legit squad that can make a deep run, he may stay.

    Sure, it's a possibility. It depends on whether he values winning more or whether he values lifestyle more.

    I know magic is in charge now, but the lakers haven't proven they can sign major free agents the last few years.

    Jonathan Isaac looks much more like a PF in his SL display. He's really stiff and has troubles creating separation. Such a raw player. He flashes the same potential as he did at FSU. I think it'll come down to whether or not he has the instincts to score. In his brief 2 games at SL, he's still not an aggressive scorer.

    The Hayward move is devastating for Jazz fans. I feel for small market teams that groom a guy for 7 years to become an All-Star, only to lose him and get nothing. It's a cautionary tale for the Kings and others, and in my view it's something that needs to be remedied in the next CBA.

    After giving the Hayward situation more thought, the NBA needs to have some type of compensatory pick rule in place, similar to that of MLB's to prevent teams from loosing their franchise players without compensation. For example if the original team makes a qualifying offer and the player signs with another team, the team that signs the player gives up their next first round pick. This type of rule might be a way to keep small market teams competitive and limit the ability to form"super teams."

    What kind of antediluvian, anti-free market ****ery is that?

    It is gut punch for sure. The frustrating part of this is that there is nothing that we could have done differently to change the outcome. The Jazz ad an organization did everything right.

    Every year I get closes and closer to not caring about the NBA. Even if we find a future all star in the draft he probably won't stay and so why even watch? It stings too much.

    The Jazz spent four years building the right way to make a really good 5th seed 2nd round team and lost it a month later.

    Goes to show you just how quickly a team can fall from playoff contention to late lottery in the NBA.

    I doubt the Jazz will be in the Lottery.

    late lottery? they lost their only all-star player from last season and replaced 17 PPG and 4APG from Hill for Rubio who averaged 11 PPG and 9 APG, I know Hill only played 49 games but he was still a part of their success. Overall, Utah is losing nearly 40 PPG and replacing it with a PG who can't shoot and a rookie, for a team that all ready stuggles to score, I just don't see how they make up for it and win 45-50 games and make the postseason.

    I can't be bothered to feel sympathy for the Jazz: you declined to offer him the five-year rookie extension, and instead told him to go prove he deserved it. You should consider yourselves fortunate that he stayed with you this long.

    Also, didn't you guys boo when they announced he was drafted?

    ESPN Radio is reporting that Rajon Rondo signed a 1-yr deal with New Orleans. I can't be arsed to look up the terms.

    Someone tells me the start of the season has been moved up two weeks so that there will be no back-to-backs. ?es no verdad? Haven't seen it on here.

    I believe it was moved up so there would be fewer back to backs but they are not completely eliminated.

    So it looks like the Blazers were able to dump Crabbe to the Nets (who signed him to the offer sheet in the first place) without having to give up a pick, taking back possible waiver-bait Andrew Nicholson.

    Kinda puts the damper on our (old) hopes that we could eat a contract for picks, largely because the Nets are not all that smart
  29. funkykingston

    funkykingston Well-Known Member

    Well, the Nets were the team that signed him to that massive offer sheet so they certainly liked him last year, but I'm not sure after watching him last season why they'd sign up for more of that.

    Also, how many wings do the Nets have now? DeMarre Carroll, Caris LeVert, Archie Goodwin, Joe Harris, Sean Kilpatrick, Rondae Hollis-Jeferson and now Crabbe?
