I am trying to imagine him as a poor mans Hornacek.

unfortunately he has been such a disappointment this year that even when our starters were out for COVID, he couldn't get a shot in getting mins. Good luck with him tho, he is great guy!

I think he's kinda Niang insurance for next year if he gets a little more than the jazz want to pay or a bigger role. Bench can turn into Clarkson, Ingles, Favors, Oni, Thomas. Still gives you great spacing and Thomas can just fill his role by being a knockdown shooter. We have other guys who can't defend. So if Thomas can play a bit with say Rudy and Oni. They can cover some of his deficiencies while still spreading the hell out of the court. Rudy frees up so many open looks with his screens. If this guy is as advertised as a shooter. He should be able to eventually chip in 12-15 minutes a night.

Heck give me Gary Payton II, or literally anyone with a pulse and above average defense.

Toronto traded Terence Davis for a second half an hour after our trade was reported. How the hell do you pick to trade for Matt Thomas over Terence Davis? This is mind boggling to me.


Lmao.

Stupid, incompetent Jazz FO ruining the team again. Every single move they make is terrible and they are among the worst in the league, right on the same level as kings and Knicks, right?

It's no wonder the team is always so bad and never going anywhere. Fire everybody. 8-)

I am never for having blind faith in an organization. obviously we have faith theyre making the right moves, but whats the point of discussing moves if we always agree with them?

At Iowa St he was the poor mans fred hoiberg coached by none other than the mayor himself. I guess his nickname should be the councilman.
