Jazz CEO drops hint that they signed Al Jefferson

8 posts in this topic

With reports pointing to the Jazz being leading contenders to acquire Al Jefferson from the Wolves, Jazz CEO Greg Miller released a cryptic twitter message claiming to have approved a roster move.

"I just approved a Jazz roster move that I'm very excited about," said Miller. "Planning to share details tomorrow." Nothing is final but we doubt Miller would be going to this much trouble to announce they matched Wesley Matthews' offer sheet from Portland. Jefferson's arrival in Utah would not only hurt Mehmet Okur's stock, but Paul Millsap's as well.

So with Jefferson apparently going to the Jazz, what do the Bobcats do to address the center position.

Makes a ton of sense for the Jazz, they probably sent Boozer's trade exception to Minny to get it done. As for what we do to get a starting center, I have this feeling that they're going to do something big. Not quite sure what it will be, but MJ is going to get us a quality starting center.

Suck next season, like they deserve to.

The only other "TRUE CENTERS" out there are scrubs. I'm sick of back ups or 'tweeners like Brad Miller.

This is most likely while Jordan has cold feet about Chandler and may be sending Ajinca instead. Even though Chandler has his issues, a core of Nazr/Diop isn't that good, as Nazr has his share of injuries too.

does anyone else think this could be why the trade for calderon is supposedly dead? maybe they were discussing with utah to trade an exception but now that jefferson isn't available they're backing out.

pure speculation

True, great move by them. Jefferson will be a great replacement for Boozer.

I'd put money on that if its not because Jefferson is getting traded to the Jazz, that its because of a similar situation.

    • Depends on what the play calling looks like this year. I try to avoid judging individuals on the success of a group, unless it's the HC. If Shula's play calling looks like hot garbage like it has so far and Cam & co. are just making up for it like in 2015, then yes I'll continue to hate him. If the playbook (and situational playcalling) is indeed better then I'll be glad and start warming up to Shula. 
    • Nice work on the weight loss!...thought you were gone???
    • I still think he's most valuable in a pass rushing specialist role and hopefully with the addition of Peppers and Hall we can largely keep him in that role. When he's fresh he's really hard for an OT to stay in front of. I expect him to play a bigger role thos season, but he played 434 snaps last year. Ideally, I don't want that number much over 500. For reference, CJ played 543 snaps and Ealy 623. Ajudted for snap count, Addison was by far our most productive DE.
