This is one area where criticism of Tyrone Corbin was, I think, generally valid. He often said in post-game comments that the team “got good shots, they just didn’t go in.” Those weren’t good shots, not for those players, even if they were sometimes open. I’m confident Quin Snyder will have a different definition of “good shot” than Corbin did, one far less rigid and more contextualized to individual player ability. This should help both Burke and Hayward so long as they run the offense.

Comment on Who is Brock Motum? by David J Smith http://saltcityhoops.com/who-is-brock-motum/#comment-94769 Fri, 01 Aug 2014 22:12:29 +0000 http://saltcityhoops.com/?p=12395#comment-94769 Coach Froling, Thank you so much for sharing your unique insights and thoughts. All you said was evident just in the brief summer league. I too think he would add a lot to the Utah Jazz and could be a player who could contribute off the bench and grow with this young core.

This kid will work his butt off for whoever he plays for, his original coach left Washington State when he signed and he honoured his agreement to stay there when he could have moved on. Ask them how happy they were to have him.He consistently represents his country and has cleaned up in National titles in Oz. As an Aussie who has had the honour to coach him I am thrilled to see him get this chance and you could not pick a better player person than this Utah and he will do whatever it takes.

Comment on Trevor Booker, Carrick Felix & More – Salt City Hoops Podcast by Andy Larsen http://saltcityhoops.com/trevor-booker-carrick-felix-more-salt-city-hoops-podcast/#comment-94766 Fri, 01 Aug 2014 20:16:15 +0000 http://saltcityhoops.com/?p=12400#comment-94766 This is good to know. I’m in charge of levelling, but only during the show itself, so I can’t edit it after it’s done. I made my mic a little louder than Ben’s about 10 min into the podcast, but it sounds like it wasn’t enough. We also move into the new studios next week, so hopefully that should make a difference. Thanks for the feedback, guys!

I didn’t hear the details to the Patrick Beverely trade, I don’t know if I missed it or if you didn’t fit it in.

I believe you are correct; I think the Spurs have done that a few times (invited a guy to camp only to cut him and have him play D-League ball with their affiliate).

I like this kid. He seemed to husstle and be in the right place at the right time. David do you know if they still have the rule or whatever if a player signs for fall camp and gets cut they have top priority to sign with that teams d-league team.. I think he will be somewhere in the NBA this year..

Comment on Can the Utah Jazz Escape the Hamster Wheel of Losing? by Mike http://saltcityhoops.com/can-the-utah-jazz-escape-the-hamster-wheel-of-losing/#comment-94760 Thu, 31 Jul 2014 22:21:14 +0000 http://saltcityhoops.com/?p=12283#comment-94760 I know the jazz are a different team than what they typically are… But, I really like the fact that we are only on this list once.
