The big question is how much he will play and whose minutes will he take? The Jazz have a few players that could stand to have some minutes given to Gay. Joe Ingles has struggled this year and, before a recent uptick in efficiency, Jordan Clarkson had struggled as well. With the way Quin Snyder locks in his rotations we’ll most likely see Eric Paschall take a backseet to Rudy Gay.
Whatever happens, it will be good to see the Jazz add another talented player to their rotation. Utah has been in a bit of a malaise lately and this is likely something that will inject some energy into their rotation. If it doesn’t go well, things might get interesting because a lot of Jazz fans, and the Jazz front office, have invested a lot of their hopes that Rudy Gay is the answer to all the Jazz’s issues from last year.
