Utah Jazz  - 
Yeah, the Warriors are an undeniable superteam, and the Jazz haven't made the playoffs since 2012. But if any team can disrupt the Dubs in 2016-17, it might be the Jazz.

Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with the Tercel, but if it's all you've ever driven......man those Carollas are nice.

Utah Jazz  - 
They were still the mostly young, unproven Jazz at the end of last season despite what some birth certificates said, a fact no one needed to point out to the front office that regarded lack of experience as the biggest concern heading into 2016-17 and possibly the difference between the playoffs and another letdown.

+Parker Richey I think it makes the NBA more enjoyable.

Those examples were not identical, just analogous. this is obviously different, but people said the same things about lebron and the heat, and those were pretty awesome seasons with compelling story lines.

The Warriors aren't the only team in the West you should keep your eye on. A few other sleeper teams should be on your radar too.

+Derek Weitzel Well the thing is the one season that he let himself get out of shape he was on a Eastern team that won about 20 or fewer games, I think anyone is more likely to let themselves go on that team compared to a championship winning Spurs team or a team that has a chance to be really good in the West in the Jazz.

Could you imagine the Jazz pulling off some kind of trade for Gay? That would cap off a wicked off season.

+James Clawson I agree that he's not the passer Diaw is (who is?), and he's not prime JJ in terms of scoring. But, Gay is a much better defender at this stage of his career than either of those two. Plus, he's only 29.

I agree the chemistry fit could be tricky, but I don't think Rodney would make a fuss about coming off the bench (just as I don't think Dante will make a fuss this year). Rodney would get his minutes either way.

Its not gonna happen, but I do think the Jazz would have benefited from Gay on the roster, especially defensively. JJ and Diaw are both question marks on defense...

Trade Grades for Trey Burke to Washington Wizards from Utah Jazz - NBA
by Kevin Pelton on 2016-07-15 06:01:00 UTC (original: http://espn.go.com/nba/insider/story/_/id/16732576/trade-grades-trey-burke-washington-wizards-utah-jazz-nba)


The Deal
Wizards get: Guard Trey Burke
Jazz get: 2021 second-round pick
Washington Wizards: B
So far in free agency, backup point guards like D.J. Augustin (four years, $29 million from the Orlando Magic) and Ish Smith (three years, $18 million from the Detroit Pistons) have been commanding multi-year deals at around the value of the mid-level exception.
Compared to those kind of deals, I'd much rather have Burke on his: $3.4 million in the final year of his rookie contract, after which the Wizards can either try to re-sign Burke as a restricted free agent or walk away.
The risk, of course, is that Burke isn't good enough to back up John Wall. He couldn't hold on to a reserve role in Utah after the Jazz added Shelvin Mack at last year's trade deadline, playing behind Mack and Raul Neto.

But Burke did make strides last year, improving his efficiency (a career-high .507 true shooting percentage) and increasing his usage rate (to 25.3 percent, also a career high). We'd expect Burke to continue improving next season at age 24.
Burke doesn't have to be particularly efficient to help a Washington offense that had little hope of scoring with Wall on the bench last season. According to NBA.com/Stats, the Wizards' offensive rating without Wall was 100.4 points per 100 possessions, which would have ranked 26th in the league.
Utah Jazz: B-
After acquiring George Hill last week, the Jazz had five point guards on the roster, leaving Burke as the odd man out. Utah was also dealing with a roster crunch with 13 players on guaranteed contracts once Joe Johnson is signed, plus three more with non-guaranteed deals and three second-round picks. So moving Burke was a priority.
The only question you could raise here is whether the Jazz might have gotten a second-round pick sooner than 2021 by waiting out free agency and seeing if someone got desperate for a backup point guard. But I understand if Utah didn't want to risk getting stuck with Burke if nobody was interested at that point.

For The Lost Sciell: Book 3 of The Merging Worlds series, I'm doing things a little different. I usually give a peak at how the cover was created. ( I might still do that.) Instead, you'll decide which cover will be the one. Comment or use the form at the bottom of the post to vote.
