Utah's slowed-down, defense-first-last-and-always approach was mostly born of necessity.

Rubio/Favors/Exum weren't necessary they were choices and very bad ones

Quote:
Throw in a solid bench with Royce O'Neale, Jeff Green, Ed Davis and wildcard Dante Exum, and you can see why this organization's offseason has been so hyped.

Exum? How about Niang!

They also brought in Emmanuel Mudiay as a good buy-low option. Bringing in 23-year-old former lottery pick for the minimum is a great low-risk strategy, but is also a clear signal to the other 23-year-old former lottery pick point guard on the roster, Dante Exum.

many clear signals for Exum. Hard to see him back next year if he sucks yet again. Have to pay Royce next year

Quote:
The Jazz re-signed Exum to a three-year, $33 million deal just over a year ago and clearly still envision him as Conley's primary backup. Mudiay can help in the regular season, but the Jazz would have gone after a more established point guard if they were looking for a playoff contributor. With the necessary annual caveat of if he can stay healthy, the Jazz are relying on Exum to be their sixth man this season.

6th man?

Quote:
On most nights, Ingles will draw the opposition's best wing scorer. He's proven capable of slowing down stars before, but a successful playoff run will see matchups against at least a couple of the seemingly dozens All-Star-caliber wings now in the West.

O'Neale

Now if youíre thinking, ďBut how does a dude who canít stretch the floor actually help floor spacing?Ē ... well ... youíre not alone. Most of us have been conditioned by Twitter, ESPN, us here at SLC Dunk, and that one friend who JUST WONíT SHUTUP about Karl Anthony-Towns that for a team to have some primo floor spacing, you gotta have a big man that can shoot like Anthony Davis, Karl Anthony-Towns, or Joel Embiid. But that isnít actually the case.

It is actually the case that you need at least one of your bigs to be able to stretch the floor. It's why Rudy put up 17 a game with Johnson/Diaw and the Jazz were a lot better with Jae on the floor

Quote:
Think of manufactured space in the NBA as the chocolate chip cookies in which you substituted applesauce for eggs. It worked in a pinch, it got the job done, but the final product wouldnít win you any awards. Many times over the past Utah Jazz season NBA analysts, writers, and opposing coaches would comment about how great Quin Snyder was at getting his players good looks. They would say it incredulously because Utahís only real offensive threat off the dribble was Donovan Mitchell. How was Donovan Mitchell finding so much space in the regular when he was Utahís only threat off the bounce? How were Joe Ingles and Kyle Korver getting so many open looks from three when they were Utahís only real threats from beyond the arc? How did Rudy Gobert set a career high in points when the paint was even more clogged than prior season for the Jazz?

Quin generated great looks by playing Rubio/Favors and Exum.

One of the biggest worries this year is that Quin will try to show how much smarter he is than the rest of us. The best thing he can do is put the right guys on the floor(another big worry) and get out of their way and just let them play
