Hayward going OFF in Utah! 16 pts already in the first quarter!
I hope he scores a ton and they lose.
Our chances of getting him go up with a Jazz series loss to the Clippers.
I'm rooting for a Jazz series win. Griffin is a much better fit for us than Hayward, and I think we'll have a good shot at him with a series loss.
Position wise absolutely. However Im weary of giving Blake a 5yr max when he has already had 3 knee surgeries and has noticeably lost some of his explosiveness.
Only resigning with your current team lets you sign a 5 year deal. We would be signing him for 4
While completely true, I'd be similarly worried about giving a 4-year max deal to someone who's missed at least a month in each of the last three seasons.
And now Griffen has a bruised toe. IF he was more healthy, I'd be fine taking him, but he's on AB's level of durability, we'd end up having two guys who miss a big chunk of the season.
Hayward looks smooth. I have a feeling he's going to stay, but I don't know how much better the Jazz can get, too good for picks, not good enough to really compete. Not sure they can get a FA to come, and don't know what they can give up for a second star.
Should be an interesting off season.
