Utah Jazz Draft Workout Recap, 5/11

May 12, 2013
tags: , ,

No one posted any audio or video from the workout (as far as I know), and Jazz personnel either wouldn’t speak to the media or were asked not to speak to the media:

media tweets

Luckily for y’all though, my sources came through.


P.S. Dennis Lindsey was asked on Friday whether he prefers to draft the best player available, or to fill a need. His response:

I’m a, I subscribe to best player available. And then you get the buts, and here’s mine. You know, if you get two players that you project at the same level, not necessarily how they play but the level of contribution, and you know, we have a pretty defined scale that we’re putting in place.

If you have, you know, two players that you think are generally the same level, you may go with need or sometimes you may go with health. That may be the winning vote. Sometimes you may go with character or intelligence, but you know, there’s a lot of, you know, contingencies you like to build in.

But I just think in the draft, guys, you need to take who you think, from a career standpoint, is going to be best. And you know, that’s difficult, you know? We, you always look back on drafts where you pass on a guy, even if you took a good player, a player behind him’s a little bit better. That happens to us all.

But generally speaking, to answer you question, best player. (1280)

    Brilliant, Moni. Especially how RR likes everything … even his own comment.

    On a more serious note, Jazz Front Office: fan discontent did NOT erupt because you gave too much info to media.

    OUT. STANDING. Question…. were RR’s comments brought to us by Les Olson Company?

      You know it bro! Les Olsen is listed under “Family” on RR’s Facebook!

    This made my week, and it’s only Monday. Thank you again Moni.
    Will there be any ice cream left in the truck? I liked DL’s comments, as if he was speaking out loud and transcribing himself. Brilliant.

      Thanks Kabar! Maybe we will find out the answer to the ice cream question during his next 1280 interview!
