  Too bad this doesn't happen,

Just spent a WILD night following John Stockton around Pennsylvania Dutch Country, about to write it up for ESPN.comless than a minute ago via web

 

It wouldn't get much better than that.

  Looks like Harp landed a broadcasting gig for this season after showcasing last season for the Jazz,

Being a basketball broadcaster is about to become a full-time gig for the ex-Jazz small forward, who is currently hosting his ninth-annual camp at The Park Place rec center.

"That's what I want to do," Harpring said.

He admitted that part. He even admitted to having a job lined up.

But he wouldn't admit which team (one of his old clubs, like the Jazz, Oklahoma City or Georgia Tech?) or which network (he lives near TNT's studio in Atlanta) will soon become his new employer.

"I can't tell you," he said.

I'm guessing he's doing something for TNT or NBA TV.  I'm not sure why he can't say yet.  I'm guessing it's somewhere close to him home in Atlanta because he talks later about not going into coaching because of his young family and traveling.  Although, with 3 kids under 4 years old, he'd fit right in in Utah.

  Getting you ready for this weekend's HOF festivities, (more videos here)

   It looks like Utah Flash assistant Kevin Young will get promoted to the head-coaching job down south.   He'll take over the fired Brad Jones.  It's an interesting case because he hasn't had any head-coaching experience until now.

So how much time, if any, will Gordon Hayward see in Orem this season?  He'll have AK and CJ ahead of him in the rotation but I could see him getting minutes.  We're not deep at the wing right now. 

Steve Luhm asks what sets they'll run now given that Jones is gone.  He ran the same thing as the Jazz do.  With owner Brandt Andersen wanting to emulate the Jazz as much as possible, I don't think they would venture far from what they're running now.

The most likely candidate to be in Orem though is Jeremy Evans should he get signed.  He might be kept around until Memo is back all the way, but once that happens, he's not going to get any PT.

  Open poll,

What's your go-to HORSE shot?
