Oh, and the losers of this offseason?

*drumroll*

The Utah Jazz... Man, have they undergone a roster overhaul!

But they still have Kanter and Favors which is a really talented frontcourt plus a ton of cap room next year.

Yeah that's all I could figure, is that they're okay with letting Al And Milsap go because they're handing the keys over to the young guys. But, they took on Biedrins AND Richard Jefferson on top of that. Getting Trey Burke was a nice move but, I just don't think letting both your starters at the 4 and 5 is a good idea. From the times I've seen Kanter and Favors play, I didn't see anything special... I know they're both still really young but, still...

They picked up $20 mil in expiring contracts, 2 first round picks, and they'll have Marvin Williams coming off the books next year.  They're in a great place to start a rebuilding process around Kanter/Favors/Hayward/Burke and they should have enough cap space to make a splash in free agency if they want to.

 

Calderon to the Mavs is a good deal for them.  Jose is a really underrated PG.  I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't do much else this off season and try to make a splash next year.

Exactly. But some people wanna believe stats.

Stats don't lie but it is deceiving. It don't tells everything. Hendo is worth no more than 6 mil.

Stats may be similar, but Mayo played with talented players throughout his career. Hendo been on the bobcats. Anything, you could argue that Hendo should have had better numbers.

I'm not sure. The Jazz is still a pretty good team. They could end up being like a Portland team last season where most people thought was going to be a bad team and surprised some of how good they actually were.

They have a very good core: Trey, Hayward, Favors, and Kanter. I think we'll still have a hard time playing them. Favors is a very underrated PF playing behind Al and Paul. Kanter has showed some promising game last season. Remember his 22 boards vs. us?

They're bad but not Sixers bad.

I think about 10 teams are  playing just to lose for a top pick, I wouldn't be surprised now if the Cats make the playoffs with a terrible record.
