I don't think the Jazz are interested in Larry Nance Jr. now that they have Rudy Gay and Eric Paschall. I get that Nance is a 3D big wing or 4.

Bojan was also really good in the playoffs, shooting 46% from 3pt. He's our best gravity shooter and a bonafide starter.
Demmit sorry read it in another forum with a source but I forgot where lol

Yeah I guess so. Plus Dok has been a revelation and Paschall should also get minutes

Bogey for Nance was my trade cry all last season, but I agree that with the new additions, Nance now becomes less viable. He's a 4 with potential to play small-ball 5, which is where EP & RG already play. The team did well loading up at the "4/5", but seem to still be a "3/4" shy of what I'd see as perfect roster balance. Still, if the Jazz pulled something like that, I wouldn't be upset. :)

Clarkson working out during the offseason. You can see he even makes a pass at the end.

Jazz hire Irv Roland to coaching staff. Sounds like he has experience in both player development and training. He's been on the Hornets, Rockets, Suns and Celtics staff before, but has also worked privately with some high profile players.

What are the chances that Gobert will finally develop one offensive move?
Draft Nate Wolters - FAILED
Keep Nate Wolters - FAILED

The real decision the Jazz FO is making is between Continuity, Cap Flexibility, and Cash Considerations.

I always wonder what these big men do all offseason to train. I get that he works on his body but how much effort does he actually put into developing offensive skills.

All he needs is Al Jefferson's push-shot........

Saw a glimpse during the Olympics when he was doing some back down then hooks. Awkward af though

I'd be happy if he can just cut to the middle, turn, and hook. And yep the Al Jeff push works for that as well

I thought what he did vs the U.S. was actually exactly what he needed to do. He doesn't need "moves" (who feeds the post anymore these days?), he just needs thoughtful aggression. The "small" guy he was pushing around was KD, who is still tall but super slender. Get deep, then just turn and dunk through him. Shaq-like. I'd like to see that a couple times when teams go small to make them think twice. Nothing fancy.
