Community Shootaround: Utah Jazz

The Jazz acquired then waived Kendall Marshall on Friday in a cap saving move that presumably allow the team to renegotiate and extend Derrick Favors‘ contract. Favors will make $11.05MM this upcoming season and $12MM during the 2017/18 campaign. Favors would likely want to complete an extension this summer given how team-friendly his current deal, as Dana Gauruder of Hoops Rumors explained in his Extension Candidate piece.

Utah will also look to lock up Rudy Gobert long-term and the center is likely to garner a max contract or extension, as Gauruder writes in a separate piece. If the team is able to come to terms with both players, it will have its starting frontcourt set for years to come.

However, in the modern day NBA, it’s fair to wonder whether having two traditional big men as the foundation of a team is the best way to build a championship roster. So that leads us to tonight’s topic: How far can the Jazz go as a franchise with Favors and Gobert as their starting frontcourt? They have played well together, but can the duo overcome their limitations to elevate the Jazz to contenders in the near future?

Take to the comments section below to share your thoughts and opinions on the topic. We look forward to what you have to say.

    Utah has Trey Lyles ready to explode to be a borderline all-star, so in the future they can split frontcourt minutes 32-32-32 between Favors Gobert and Lyles.

    • But can that work in the long run or turn into the big lineup Detroit had with Drummond jsmith and Monroe with no spacing between 2 of the 3

      • lakersfan27

        Tray has range out to the three, but idk see them playing all three together.

  2. I think they’ll be a playoff team, but won’t ever become contenders with this core. It’s a superstars league and you just can’t win it all without a superstar. Think about the names that we had in the last two finals: LeBron, Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Kyrie Irving, Draymond Green. Although Hayward, Gobert, Favors and Lyles all could be future all stars, none of them will ever elevate to the superstar level.

    Their defense is amazing with them both on the court. The offense Sturges with spacing but excels in offensive rebounds which helps the total offensive numbers. I believe their offense is better when they are both on the court. Rudy is a Hella good pick setter and a good passers-by while D Faves might ne the best roll man in the league.
