If Favors stays beyond next season, he will likely pass Rickey Green and Bryon Russell and move into eighth all-time in games played. He’s not a legend league-wide, but he’s a legend in Utah and I wouldn’t be surprised if we see the number 15 jersey hanging up in the rafters one day.

I wouldn't be surprised either and it would be a joke like most of them up there

The Utah Jazz internal development system is unquestionably one of the league’s best right now.

I think there's a big question there. Players that want to work get better.

What is your favorite move Dennis has made since joining the Jazz? It has to be trading for Donovan on draft night, right?

Exum!

Scout’s Take [on Rodney Hood’s free agency]: “Cleveland can get him for a song and dance at this point. I don’t think anyone else wants him, which is surprising because I really liked him in Utah. Utah just let him fly. I was impressed with how he came back in the Finals as an ‘I’ll show you’ game. I always liked him. He’ll be good in Cleveland because Cleveland’s going to be bad, and they’ll need his scoring. Who else are they going to go to? He’ll get quality minutes on that roster. How could he not? I’m not sure how tough he is, though. He can put up big scoring numbers on a bad team.” – via Bleacher Report

Some people just don't know how good they had it. He'll probably never have a coach that loves him like Quin did

While it may appear disheartening to know that collegiate players can’t join the G League at any point in the season, it’s all about optics. It’s also about strengthening the G League Draft as well with prospects and avoiding situations like the one above where players can sit and wait until the team of their choice sits atop the waiver order, thus nullifying the entire draft process. Will Bazley’s (in)decision reflect on his draft stock? Opting to not play in the 2018–19 season will certainly limit his potential as a possible lottery pick, especially if scouts aren’t able to assess his talent and potential. – via 2 Ways & 10 Days

Doesn't want to play in Utah?

With a number of friendly expiring contracts, or agreements with team options on the back end, the sky’s the limit on who Utah could aim to move. Raul Neto, Derrick Favors, Thabo Sefolosha and Ekpe Udoh all fall in those aforementioned categories and, especially depending on how the season shakes out, each of them could be in trade conversations.

Rubio is playing for his job with Allen joining the 33 million dollar man, Spida and O'Neale. Bradley is 4th center and will probably never be one so I could certainly see him going at some point.

Quote:
Honestly, I have a hard time seeing any of those guys being moved, especially the recently re-signed Favors and Neto who were just given new deals this summer. Favors has often been purportedly made available at trade deadlines, but after proving his worth time and time again and earning the nice contract he did this offseason, I’d say it’s pretty clear the Jazz are set on keeping a tight hold on him (as they should), at least for the entirety of this season.

Expiring contract. They should certainly be open to moving him

Quote:
Burks has always been a hyper-athlete, but during that series, he was able to put some of his typical weaknesses behind him in order to thrive. His decision making and control were better, and while efficiency has never really been his strong suit, he proved he could create his own shot and provided some nice offense for the Jazz’s second unit.

Gets to the hole and the line. That's what you want!

Quote:
Then again, the Jazz aren’t typically a team to act rashly or hastily, so it’s entirely possible that they’ll once again follow a similar path at this year’s trade deadline. Whether or not Burks is a part of Utah’s long-term plans (most likely not), they may very well find it most prudent to keep him and the rest of this Utah Jazz squad together for the entirety of the year.

He better be bought out if not traded. He deserves to play somewhere.

That assumption comes from a video that recently surfaced that showed Harden, Paul, Mitchell and Royce O’Neale all working out with one another, taking turns getting up shots and defending one another.

Can't hurt to work out with two of the best!

Quote:
But more importantly, this is just yet another reminder that the Jazz are on the map. It’s not everyday that members of the small market Jazz find themselves working out with NBA stars, so this is cool to see.

Stop! Hayward worked out with Kobe. not like it's a first
