Where To Go From Here

With the Jazz not in the playoffs, I find myself finding a hard time watching the playoffs. I usually watch playoffs if the Jazz are in, and by the time they are eliminated I am still somewhat into it. To keep my basketball mind busy, I have focused on what the Jazz need to do in the offseason.

Under Contract To Come Back Next Year
Al Jefferson
Mehmet Okur
Devin Harris
Paul Millsap
Derrick Favors
Raja Bell
Gordon Hayward
Jeremy Evans
CJ Miles (Team Option)

From the list of what we have coming back, you have a starting PG in Harris, SG in Hayward, SF in Millsap, PF in Favors, and C in Jefferson. Personally, I feel that is what the starting lineup needs to be. Bell is coming to the end of his career and is perfect to come off the bench. CJ seems to play better coming off the bench when we need a sixth man. Towards the end of the season, Hayward looked a lot more comfortable playing the 2 instead of the 3.

With the draft coming up, I feel that we should trade away our first pick ONLY if we receive the number one pick. Call me crazy, but there is nobody in this draft that has stood out to me. Irving hasn't proven himself on the college level and nobody is an easy fit for us with that high of a pick. I would offer to possibly trade down and get us a talented big man to back up Jefferson, maybe a Andrew Bynum.

With the next pick, I would personally look at Jimmer Fredette. I know Jimmer isn't that popular due to lack of defense and not being able to be a floor general but he reminds me of a CJ Miles. If you was to bring in Jimmer and CJ as your sixth men, they could potentially kick start the team.

So now I leave it to you, look at who we have left and the draft coming up, who would you pick? Would you trade away? Would you go out and splash big on the free agency market?
