  • A good night for Trey Lyles getting the start for Utah. 17 and 9. Now that was against the lakers so with the conversion it may be like 14 and 5 but still good.

    Also getting love from the Utah press

      Nik Stauskas is looking like a big project though....
      More than just a project, he looks like Andy Rautins 2.0 out there.

      All the stuff he was good at in college, it's like he's simply not capable of doing it at NBA speed.

      People are saying that Redick figured it out so Stauskas will too, but idk if it's the same. Redick was always able to shoot at the NBA level, Stauskas can't even do that right now.

      EDIT: Yes I know I'm replying to a post from over a month ago.

      • I think going to Sacramento really really hurt Stauskas...And fixing bad habits is only going to take time. People are quick to label "bust", and not willing to wait for potential

          I think he's just not good. Was relatively high on him on draft night but I haven't seen anything from him to indicate he's going to be a good player in the NBA.

          There are plenty of players who start in bad situations but still figure things out and look respectable. Lakers are a terrible situation but you still see Randle, Clarkson, Russell playing decent basketball.

              It doesn't matter where the games are this team is too talented to not make the Olympics and it will be a massive failure if they don't qualify.

                They already failed going the easy route. I wonder if another year of experience for the young guys will be enough to tough it out in the more difficult upcoming tournament.

                  I would love to see our boys play against desperate Serbian team in Belgrade. That arena would be an absolute hell. Too bad they qualified. .

                    I think adding Jamal Murray to the team makes all the difference. He was our best player at the PanAm's but couldn't play in the FIBA America's because of school. There is also that Tristan Thompson guy who is pretty damn good, but didn't play in the FIBA America's due to contract negotiations. We were missing 2 starters on that squad, so just adding them makes us a ton better.

                        Murray will play SG on team Canada, and in the NBA. He played way better than Stauskas. Bring Stauskas off the bench.

                        PG: CoJo, Ennis
                        SG: Murray, Stauskas
                        SF: Wiggins, Ejim
                        PF: Thompson, Nicholson, Bennett (can also play some C)
                        C: Olynyk, Powell

                        Also have young up and coming guys in Lyles, Wiltjer, and Rathan-Mayes.

                          I forgot about Lyles..he is Dwight Powell good, but doesn't mind to operate like a Patrick Patterson. I keep forgetting about Saskatooners

                            What do you guys think this teams 82 game record would be if it was an nba team?
                            It's Klaw Season. Time to hunt.

                              Not good even with the best coach any of them have in Brad Stevens.

                                Probably similar to the Celtics. It looks roughly as talented as that team. Maybe I'm being a bit optimistic there, but I think it'd be close to a .500 team. That is assuming Murray is a boss in the NBA like he has been for Team Canada and Kentucky.
