    The Pelicans are in a free fall without zion and Ingram into the malaise of the .500 of group pretty quickly.

    the Jazz are just so average. Lauri is so much better then I thought he could be. the dude is averaging 25/9/2 on elite percentages. he has turned himself into a pretty good #2. Kessler is 80% of Gobert defensively, 120% better offensively, and still just a rookie. he has to cut down on the fouls, but the rest looks very promising if he wasn't a drop big. Agbaji is showing some glimpses. the rest I would take the highest offer I could for them.

    Honestly I think the Jazz are a really good PG away from bing VERY good. We need the set up guy. I wish we could just throw whatever the Pacers wanted for Haliburton but I know that's a pipe dream.

    I do think the two you mentioned are the only players the Jazz won't move. I still don't think they want to lose Clarkson but they'd probably let him go for the right price. I just think eventually we will end up with too many picks. Like what exactly do you do with that many draft picks? Beasley is probably the most likely to be moved with Conley being second on that list.

    I mean I think we are #1 option away from being very good, but I could say that about a ton of teams. Conley is a very good set up PG, but obviously he isn't creating very much for himself anymore. Don't get me wrong I like Clarkson, but I am not loving the idea of giving a 31 year old a huge contract. Beasley is a guy I wouldn't mind keeping, but I don't like his legal issues. I would trade Sexton if someone gave us a decent offer, but that seems very unlikely. Vanderbilt only makes sense to keep if we were to get rid of Kessler. its way to hard to play both in the same lineup. I still can't believe we gave up Bojan for Olynyk. it balanced out our lineup, but we lost a very valuable trade piece for basically nothing.

    Pretty soon the Pelicans may choose not to exercize their option to swap picks with the Lakers in the next draft.

    man the kings are starting to put distance between them and the 6th seed. This trade deadline could be a boring with so many teams hovering around .500. How many of these teams are going to pull the plug when they are so close to being in playoffs. I actually think if a team really pulled the plug one of these .500 team is going to tank themselves into a top 7 pick even if its on accident.

    that could be big. Lebron has been on a tear and with AD back they could go on a bit of a run. they don't need that many wins to be back in the thick of a playoff hunt.

    Based on Ainge's past he'll use the picks and see what he gets. Trading draft picks during the draft to move up and down. It just comes down to talent evaluations and development.

    It's so unfair how much the league despises Philly and targets them to the point they only get 36FTs and 10 more than their opponent. Just imagine what would happen if guys like Harden/Embiid could get call here and there.

    Dame went off. Sucks the Jazz had to pay the price for Beverley mocking Dame last game.

    To be fair they did play the team that features the worlds biggest *****. See him pass up another layup in the exact same situation as game 7 against ATL?

    the game was horrific on both sides by far... here take a look at something every person that actually watches the game is talking about

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NFRl...b_channel=ESPN

    Imagine trying to justify officiating with fta because 1 team had 10 more while the other team is a jump shooting team lol. foul calls were 26-20. Try harder?

    The officiating was horrific in this game on a night where we see curry got ejected for throwing his mouth piece that had 0 to do with a ref and more to do with his own teammate in crunch time warriors vs grizz. The league needs an overhaul with these refs badly
