On this week’s episode of the Salt City Hoops Podcast, Andy Larsen is again joined by Clint Johnson as we break down the Utah Jazz’s performance in the Las Vegas Summer League. In particular, we talk about Dante Exum’s up-and-down performance, and what to make of Trey Burke, Rodney Hood, and Rudy Gobert through their summer league performances.

We also invite Dean Demakis, of,┬áto give his input on what he’s seen of the Jazz’s prospects. Has Dante Exum impressed or disappointed thus far? What about Jabari Parker? Finally, he gives us some names with rising stocks and some with falling stocks from their summer league showings.

Finally, we have a Crazy Trade Idea of the Week, involving Enes Kanter and the Cleveland Cavaliers. As advertised, it is slightly crazy.


All that and more on this week’s Salt City Hoops Podcast!

    Thanks for a nice podcast. Would say you have to take summer league with a grain of salt. You have players trying to get a spot on a roster and different things just don’t mesh. Would also agree that development is the key.
    On the trade idea I at first said no way but in thinking about who Is Kanter may not be answered at least by the time he could be extended. Instead of a four to five year contract for these players I think a two year would be better. That way they could comfortably take a better look. Because he is a big his next contract will be either a bargain or a bust. Maybe Bennett under a far better coach would be a steal.. But I would take the protection off the pick. I think with Kanter and LBJ in the same front court it would be like playing the Cleveland Browns instead of the Cavs..And with Kanter out of the way Burks could get a better contract and I think he is indeed a keeper..
