Our top two scorers from last season are still looking weak. Bogey hit zero shots from the field last night against the Suns. Donovan scored 23 points, but it took him 23 shot attempts to do it.

Notwithstanding his very slow start to the season, Donovan's season eFG% is now a hair higher than last season's and his 3 point percentage is a 39.8%. His assists are over five per game. Go Donovan!

Conley is looking like the player we hoped we were trading for, and perhaps even better. Crossing my fingers that Conley can continue to be a key positive contributor for this team.

Bogey still has a ways to go to try to get this season's shooting percentages near his career averages.

Not off to a good start?

Tough crowd.

One of the hottest teams in the league.

So do you try to bring Conley back or at least try to preserve his salary slot to keep the talent level high?

Either Jazz re-sign Conley or replace him with good scorer.

That's assuming the Jazz keep this play up all season and at least get to the second round and be at least competitive if not get to the WCF.

If they do that, more incentive to keep Conley or his salary slot. Or fan expectations/pressure on the team, because it would be tough to let him walk if the Jazz do the best in the playoffs since the Stockton/Malone years.

Or maybe it's just a contract year thing and bringing him back is risky.
