Amar put out a great guide for Jazz fans, of games to watch during the upcoming FIBA World Cup. The next Team USA game is tomorrow afternoon against Slovenia. This is the final exhibition before the tournament starts on Saturday. Do you like this squad's chances in the tournament? Who will be their biggest challenge?
Grading things is a fun thing to do. I scoured back through DB's for the last few weeks to make sure this wasn't mentioned, and I hope I didn't miss it posted somewhere else, but here is SI's grade for the Jazz's offseason:
Best move: Drafting Dante Exum with the No. 5 overall pick.
Worst move: Signing Gordon Hayward to a four-year, $63 million extension with a player option in the final season and a trade kicker.
A few weeks ago we mentioned Dennis Lindsey's son receiving multiple basketball scholarship offers, including University of Utah. It looks like Jake has made a choice:

Congratulations to Jake, from all of us at SLC Dunk.
