If they can’t at least make it to the WCFs and have a competitive series they should not sign Rudy to a Supermax. They should trade him and get assets to build around Donovan. That’s why I think it’s this year or sorta bust. Maybe sign Rudy to a contract and then trade him.
Perhaps they should but they never will. We all know the Jazz and how they do things by now. No way they'll turn their backs on a (pretty much) guaranteed playoff team that can even advance a round for a rebuild.
I'm assuming you have some other kind of fool proof plan to get the Jazz an easy title, since you seem to hate everything about what they do, yes? A better plan than resigning a top20 NBA player. A better plan than building around the 2nd best duo in franchise history. A better plan than tanking a bunch of years in hopes of getting players as good as DM & RG to build around.
Fun season should be upon us. Enjoy it, good sir!!!
I think you were speaking to Inigo? But anyways I’m very, very excited for this season. Most excited I’ve ever been. Conley and Bojan were at the top of my list of realistic targets in the offseason. Especially Bojan. We needed shooting, we got shooting. I thought we slightly overpaid for Conley, but given the way the rest of the roster was rounded out I'm fine with the trade now. And looking at his numbers more in depth after the trade made me realize why Conley was a target. The front office made a good move. I’m worried about his age, but it is what it does.
But I do disagree with your sentiment that it’s foolish to tank/rebuild. At least that’s what I think you are getting at? With the way the CBA is constructed, and the fact the we aren’t the Lakers, tanking is the best way to get a championship. It’s just facing the reality of the league. If Rudy wants a supermax and demands the full amount. The Jazz are screwed. The Jazz are only going to win a championship with Rudy by surrounding him with damn good shooters at all positions. There won’t be capspace left if he wants 40-50 million to get any of those guys. If he wants to get paid that much I’d trade him in a heartbeat. For now, the front office did the right thing by surrounding him with the players they did. Hopefully we can renegotiate a contract this upcoming year to extend him the next 3-4 years saving the Jazz some money and he can get the security of getting paid faster. Well see.
