It seems unlikely that OKC just pulled the trigger with Houston without looking around. My only other thought is that maybe the Jazz brass knew something or heard something that made them believe Harden wouldn’t sign with Utah…

Corbin has us playing the exact same ball that sloan would’ve played and its STILL not working. I’m not dogging on sloan, I’m dogging on Corbin. He needs to Get his own system or get with the times. Fouling doesn’t work anymore and let’s stop pretending that just because foye and Williams can hit a three that we should be shooting them all freakin day long. We’re an inside team first and we should be sticking to that.
Further, if we’re going to sit around and throw away a season by losing where we obviously can’t win… Don’t you think we should be giving the young guys the time and not Tinsley and Ma Williams. Here’s the thing, they’re decent players, but they’re not the future and the longer we wait to give our kids the time they need the more we stifle their growth and possible progression. I don’t care who goes, but we need to make a trade similar to this harden deal and start planning for the future. Trying to win now is fine and dandy but when your obvious efforts to win now aren’t doing you any good, you should ave the man balls to admit the mistake and hand the reins to the kids… If the jazz think they can continue to play like this and be relevant at the same time, they’re kidding themselves. Somebody needs to see this and stir the pot or this season will be gone before we know it with absolutely nothing to show.

It would seem ridiculous to me that OKC would not at least look around at the other teams with picks/young talent, of which there are probably only 6-8, but maybe they didn’t! We’ll probably never know.

Seeing all of the options laid out convinces me we really missed an opportunity. Getting Harden would have taken a lot of pressure off of the Jazz to draft the point guard of the future in the next couple of years, drafts that look pretty weak in promising PGs.

The suggested lineups would have been insanely exciting to watch.
