Contrary to what you say this looks like a loaded draft in our draft range. We won't know for sure until a few years. The future pick protection is horrible because that 2022 draft is when highschool kids are likely to be allowed back in so you will essentially have 2yrs worth of elite talent. That could turn it into the deepest draft ever. Then of course the biggest loss is the capspace that we could have used to sign some solid role players.
I think Allen stinks. He was supposed to be NBA ready, he's old for a rookie, and he could barely get on the floor. We already lost that pick, imo. He's probably not worth the rookie salary he has.
The protection hurts. But we gave them a bunch of filler. This year's pick doesn't have a ton of value. We got a good player in Conley. He should be our 3rd best player, which I think is more than a roleplayer. We should have done it with Rubio and 2 firsts at the deadline. Maybe they wanted Exum (I would pack his bags for him, but now we hold onto that experiment).
Probably two late firsts, I can live with that for the chance to go for it.
I thought this was interesting.
Exactly! Crowder & a couple late 1st for an All Star who checks a bunch of boxes the Jazz need.
Guess you just can't ever please everyone. Haters-gonna-hate
