Wow. Did not see that coming

Horford and Milsap is a nice duo. And only a 2 year deal

Very nice but also tiny. 6'8/6'10 frontcourt not too ideal. Skill set wise they are going to be awesome. Both guys can score anywhere.

Damn, you must live on twitter/psd dude. Make the first thread for every player/coaching rumor or signing.

I work on the computer a lot and yes for this free agency period when not working I've been spam refreshing Twitter going nuts on these rumors :(. BTW deal is for 19 million.

It's not easy to win in this league, but I think they are headed in the right direction now.

Fairly nice deal. Still think they get Monta as well.

Maybe it's not to start:

PF: Horford/Millsap
Center: Asik?

Would be a great rotation.

They also just signed Demare Carroll for 5 mill/2 years. VERY nice signings by them tonight. I wanted Carroll ;(.

Wouldn't be any Diff from Smith / Horford 6'9/6'10. At least this front court is better offensively

Not saying they don't have great players, but they just never seem to be able to play well in the playoffs.

Yea a pretty good deal, I knew they wouldn't overpay Josh Smith and give him what he wanted.

Yea, having talent doesn't always equate to winning. There will be some more stability coaching wise now, and in the FO. Unless you have the greatest players, winning and having so many constant changes with coaching and management is not easy.

No more Josh Smith? Instead, we get a hard working forward to pair with another hard working Horford? :)

And got Milsap at a really reasonably price. Nearly a steal I think, I'm sure he could've gotten more. (imo)

Curious to see if this is a starting duo or Millsap is ok with being the rotational big man. We could be a bully up front in the East if we can find a legit starting center as well.

Cuban is a numbers guy, don't see him signing Monta. I definitely see him giving Bynum a ton of money now though.

Yea, who knows. Milsap to me seems like he'd be ok with being rotational. He plays hard regardless which is good.

Danny Ferry is a boss. He just signed a better PF than Josh Smith for like a quarter of the price lol

Yup... A steal for sure. They're being referred to as some as the Spurs of the east since getting Ferry & Budenholzer. Even drafted someone from overseas lol

I knew that when he shipped the worst contract in the league out for cap space, a 1st round pick (that I believe turned into Dennis Schroeder) and Kyle Korver basically. Thanks again Deron Williams for helping out.

Now Josh Smith is gone and hopefully these players won't lay down on national tv when things get tough. Hard workers all around.

Am I missing something, why wouldn't they try to tank this year for Wiggins/Jabari/Randle??? It is very good value though.

Me too. I really hoped he stuck around for when Pop called it quits. But he's been an assistant since Pop came into the league, and he was due a chance. And he got put into a good, situation that will likely be a stable one and won't be like these other coaches who get a shot and get canned after a year or 2.

Some teams aren't into tanking. As a fan, I respect that. Especially when you have an opportunity to be competitive.

I was for it, and actually thought he was. But now that I think about it, Ferry is probably more confident in drafting players late in drafts. Dennis Schroeder hopefully could be the next great PG.

As a Jazz fan I can say good luck getting millsap to come off the bench. The jazz experimented with starting favors over him a few times and he got pouty. In his mind he is a starter and has said as much several times.

Yeah but having seen him post on a stat forum, he truly believes he can find situations to bring out the best (efficiency wise) in players he feels have the potential. Im sure he has his reasons but he was wrong about Kaman tho.

yes he was really moody all of last year because there were games that favors would finish over him. if he had been willing to come off of the bench the jazz would have offered him this deal. in fact they offered a 3 year 8 mill deal before the start of the season and he rejected it. I think it was mostly he only wants to be a starter and knew he might have to come off of the bench in utah.

Good signing. Paul is a good player. If they get Monta and trade for Asik, they could be very good

You will be missed Millsap. I predicted you would be a steal in the 2006 draft. Was so happy the Jazz drafted you. It is time to move on though. Kanter and Favors are ready to shock the league next year.

Here is the greatest Millsap memory on the Jazz.
