I am not sure how many of you feel, but in my mind the NBA season is lost to me. Even if they come back, I probably will have very little interest in it. College sports along with the NFL has kept me distracted enough to not care about the lock out. Yet looking forward to 2012-2013 season has me very excited.
After last season: Fesenko, Elson, Kirilenko, Price and Watson all left the team. If the lock out holds out for the entire season, we lose the contracts of: Okur, Evans and Miles without paying their last year costs. So there would only be six (really 8) men on the roster:
We keep the core of our young team. There is still the 2012 NBA Draft (which has mock drafts already) and the one name I see coming up a lot for our team is Austin Rivers from Duke. Personally I rather take a point guard but if we dealt Bell's contract and rights to another team, it might not be a bad deal.
Or do we trade away some picks and a player for cash and go out after the draft and pick up and established point guard?
That website shows the free agents after each year. Personally I say we get another established veteran back up to backup Harris such as a Barbosa or Miller that we can get for cheap for a year or two at max. Then the following year, when we lose Harris contract we make a big splash for an established superstar point guard. That year is packed full from names ranging from Baron Davis, Manu Ginobili, Jameer Nelson, Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook, and Deron Williams.
What is your thoughts? If this year is totally lost and the deal is put in place after the season, what moves should the Jazz be making?
