    Andy, Locke talked this morning about Kanter’s improved defensive numbers (which you understand more than I do) over the last 15-25 games. Even better than Gobert’s. To what do you attribute this? Lineups, matchups, increased effort, a combination of these and other factors? Thanks for your insights.

  2. Alex says:

    Isaiah Thomas, should we get him on the Jazz, Clark?

  3. Dart Vade says:

    frak this trade. Utah picks Kanter 3rd overall and trades him away for a player to be cut to save cap money? Am I the only Jazz fan that realizes NO ONE wants to play in Utah or live there? I have seen it enough over 20 years, never, not one big time free agent even came close to signing or even considered it. They want night life, 5 star restaurants, women (not the right place for that at all with the religion) and endorsements and doing things that aren’t skiing. They can only win with a young team that come together and gels and then maybe bc of the friendships and winning (assuming that happens) might stay. Its just a bad trade that makes zero sense.

    Thanks for all the coverage. Given the situation, this was a great trade. They made this bed when they let Ty Corbin ruin the development of their young guys over the past couple years. I’d have to say they made the best of a bad situation. I would be completely unsurprised if trading him in the division comes back to bite us, though.

  5. Steve says:

    Love the trade! Move gets way more assets and increased cap flexibility. To be honest, I really think some team was going to way over pay Kanter this summer and the Jazz couldn’t have matched it. Overall, great move to help acquire a more tools to convert into a very good player later on.
