A few names are being connected to the Utah Jazz in terms of actual interviews. Read more on Salt City Hoops […]

He’s my number one, honestly.

http://www.deseretnews.com/article/865604203/Sources-Quin-Snyder-emerging-as-a-lead-candidate-for-Utah-Jazz-coaching-job.html

But… Conspiracy Theory: The Des News has a stake in the Jazz coaching position. They caught wind of Snyder, they don’t like it, they posted the WORST photo of him they could find. The “public will do what the public do” and not look any further into who Snyder is. The bad photo will deem him a bad man among ignorant, vocal fans. The Jazz won’t want the (artificial) PR nightmare, so Snyder will get cut from the list. The Jazz will promote Utah-native, Des News-friendly, Alex Jensen. The Lakers will hire Snyder. Snyder will win a championship next year with the newly-signed, LeBron and Kevin Love.

(Man…this job is easy.)

But I don’t think it’s the splash DL wants to make. I’d pursue it only if the previously mentioned coaches (Blatt, Messina, Griffin, etc.) don’t work out. It wouldn’t be a disaster, and would still be, in my opinion, an upgrade from Corbin.

I think it depends on who they get in the Draft. With Hayward, Burks, Evans–they can do some running. I am a big proponent of early offense–getting good shots early in the shot clock (but not bad ones just for the sake of shooting early).
