On this week’s Saturday Show, Andy Larsen and Austin Horton discuss what each player needs to do between now and the start of training camp on October 1st. The Jazz have many young players who still could improve on their games, what realistic points of improvement could they have? Derrick Favors, Enes Kanter, Trey Burke, Jeremy Evans, Gordon Hayward, Marvin Williams, and Alec Burks are all addressed. We’re only 1 month away from training camps!

This week’s Saturday Show features Austin Horton, producer of 1280′s The Big Show; Dan Clayton, writer for Salt City Hoops and Spanish voice of the Utah Jazz; and myself (Andy Larsen) talking about the Jazz’s overall strategy this season. Sure, the Jazz players and coaching staff would like to win as much as possible, but would Dennis Lindsey prefer a 25 win season or a 35 win season? We discuss. Then, we take a look at Ty Corbin. What are the pros and cons of Corbin as coach, and do the Jazz keep him long-term? Should they? Finally, a look at what we’re looking forward to most for the next season. Who are we most excited to buy tickets for? All that, plus a bit of ribbing about Andy’s choice to wear a soccer jersey to the basketball radio show’s studio. It’s the Salt City Hoops Saturday Show!
In this special mid-week edition of the Salt City Hoops Show, Laura Thompson moderates Dan Clayton (of Salt City Hoops) and Peter Novak (of SLCDunk), as they debate whether or not Derrick Favors and Gordon Hayward will get extensions this summer from the Utah Jazz. The topic is one of the most important in Jazzland: how long can the Jazz keep their two best players around? If they can keep them, how much will it cost them? What are the agents for Favors and Hayward thinking, and what is their move this summer? Does Larry Sanders’ extension set the market for Favors, or his he incomparable? All that and more on this special mid-week podcast!
Wow, this one was fun. Austin Horton and Ben Gaines join Andy this week, and things get heated quickly. Who does this team belong to next season? Can Gordon Hayward be a good leader, or is he too nice? Is Derrick Favors too quiet? Can Trey Burke be the leader, even as a rookie? All of us significantly disagree on this issue. We raise our voices. It’s great. Then, we take a look at next year’s rotation. Should Burks or Rush start at the SG spot to begin the year? Should Biedrins get any minutes at all? How many minutes should Gobert get in his rookie season? Finally, we throw out some fun facts about this year’s schedule. Which team flies the most miles, and where do the Jazz rank? All that and more in this week’s show!
On this week’s episode of the Salt City Hoops Saturday show, The Big Show producer Austin Horton and Andy Larsen sit down and talk about intangibles: should sports teams look at character when making personnel decisions, or is it all just a bunch of hogwash? We also take a look at Dan Clayton’s post from this week: what pace will the Jazz play at next season? Does it make sense for this young team to get out and run, or should they slow it down? Finally, the team does a quick free-agent roundup. With only a few free agents left remaining, which ones will get a contract for next season? Austin asks Andy for his rapid-fire impressions on all of the players left remaining.
All that, plus a few RSL shenanigans, on this week’s show!
On this week’s edition of the SCH Saturday Show, Austin Horton, Dan Clayton, and Andy Larsen talk about the fan reaction to the Jazz’s new rebuilding plan. Austin says that opinions on the plan are split roughly 50/50… do Dan and Andy agree? Is this the right move for the franchise, and will fans support the team during the tough road ahead in the 2013-14 season. Also, the team talks about Karl Malone’s 50th birthday, and his role with the organization. That, plus steroids talk. Before the Biogenesis report, are steroids a real worry in the NBA? All that on this week’s episode!
On this week’s Salt City Hoops Saturday Show, Andy Larsen, Dan Clayton and 1280 AM “The Big Show” producer Austin Horton take a deeper look into Dennis Lindsey’s 20 minute interview on Friday. We parse his comments: what did Lindsey really mean when talking about John Lucas’ signing? Is he a good fit with the Jazz? Why is Raul Neto staying in Spain, and what’s his future with the Utah Jazz? Kanter, Hayward, and Favors are all working out with the team in different ways this summer… why are they different, and what do each of their plans say about their upcoming season’s? We take a statistical look at Favors, Hayward, and Jeremy Evans. Finally, we talk about the next step: Lindsey indicated that the Jazz likely aren’t done this summer… what’s the next move? All that and more on this week’s show!
This week Andy talks to Clark Schmutz of SLCDunk.com, reprising the popular Clark and Andy show again. There’s been much to talk about this summer for the Jazz, and we talk about the new direction of the franchise. Does the Jazz’s current plan make sense, and given that, was the Golden State trade a good one? Did the Jazz overpay for the picks, as Zach Lowe suggested on Grantland?
After the trade, it’s looking like next season the Jazz will struggle. How good will Utah be overall, and are we likely to receive one of the coveted top 5 picks in the 2014 draft? Finally, we ask the important question: are the Jazz tanking? All of this and more on this week’s Clark and Andy Show!
On this week’s show, Andy Larsen and Ben Gaines analyze the big trade with the Golden State Warriors, in which the Warriors sent Biedrins, Jefferson, Rush, two first rounders, and two second rounders to the Jazz in exchange for Kevin Murphy. There were significant financial costs to the deal, but was it worth it?
Then, we invited Nate Parham of Golden State of Mind onto the show to learn a little bit more about the players received in the deal. Can Biedrins and Jefferson help the Jazz at all this season, or are they a lost cause? How does Brandon Rush fit into the roster? How about the personalities of these guys, and in particular, Andris Biedrins. Can we learn anything about them? (Hint: Sidney Lowe is no longer the only Jazzman with an iffy history with the tax man!) All that, plus a Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson retrospective, on this week’s show!
In this week’s episode of the Salt City Hoops Saturday Show, we bring together 5 different bloggers from Jazzland: Andy Larsen, Dan Clayton, Laura Thompson, Clark Schmutz, and Peter Novak, and have them give their version of what they would do if they were in Dennis Lindsey’s shoes for the rest of the offseason. How would they fill out the roster? Which of the Jazz’ current free agents would they bring back, and who would they go out and sign from another team? Would they go out and push for any trades? Finally, we have our audience vote on the winner. Which blogger has the best plan in all of Jazzland? Tune in to this week’s podcast to find out!
