My wife, while at CFB in Richmond, hired Will Hardy’s (Utah Jazz’s new head coach) mom. When acquired by Wachovia, they left and formed their own consulting agency. Will is a fine young man. Learned a lot from Popavich.The Jazz just raped the Wolves. Gobert is a great defensive player that can’t play offense in a league that’s won with offense.

The TWolves’ chance of winning a title was zero before and remains zero.Vegas disagrees:
Minnesota's odds to win the NBA title moved from 80-1 to 50-1 at Caesars Sportsbook after the trade. Utah's odds moved from 50-1 to 100-1.
Longer term who knows? The picks are unlikely to be in the lottery but both Beverly and Beasley are on expiring contracts, so it would seem this is the second step in the Jazz trying to assemble a compelling package for a notable trade (Royce O’Neal trade being the first). Success or failure boils down to what the Jazz make out of their side of the deal. That said, TWolves just got markedly better by improving their interior defense which was a sieve. It seems like a reasonably balanced trade given where each team is at currently.

Golbert could have been a really good player on a great NBA team 10, 20, 30 years ago. He’s a lot better than Luke Longley. The NBA has changed. His game does not work in the current NBA offensive schemes.
They call me Mr. KnowitallThe professional Oddsmakers give them a decent shot, I’ll go with them on this and you if I need to be anesthetized. Gobert is no maestro on the offensive end, but he is serviceable…..Twolves have KAT anyway, he is a walking bucket and will be relieved of being the primary big on D. Rudy can defend all five spots, protect the rim and board, he is made for this era defensively, but if you don’t like him, you don’t like him. I still hold it was a balanced trade, not quite how you described it so eloquently….
