He said the Games have also given him a chance to meet the newest member of the Jazz — Boris Diaw, the former Spurs veteran who plays for France. “I’ve talked to Boris in the (athlete’s) village,” he said. “He’s a really nice guy. (Leandro) Barbosa played with him in Phoenix, and he say only good things about him. I think we have a great team, some nice guys joined our team, and we expect (to) do better (this) season.”
Storyline: Olympic Games
Utah only has 1-3 roster spots open — depending on if it picks up contracts for Shelvin Mack, Jeff Withey and Chris Johnson — although that figures to change with the team’s need to thin out that packed point guard platoon. The most likely scenario would seem to be trading away Trey Burke, Shelvin Mack and/or Raul Neto. Utah has plenty of money to use for a free-agent shopping spree, depending on what level of player it goes after. With Hill, the team’s guaranteed salary for next year is $64.6 million. Throw in an additional $4.5 million with the contracts of Mack, Withey and Johnson, and the Jazz are still well below 2016-17’s projected salary floor of $84.6 million and far below the $94 million salary cap and $113 million tax level.

Neto, like Rose, finished with 14 points, a career-high, only he accomplished that total on 6-of-8 shooting from the field. Whenever a play broke down, Neto was able to use his dribble creatively, and wreak havoc on Chicago’s defense. In response, Rose often forced shots. “I tried to fight every time on defense, and on offense I tried to be aggressive and find my shot,” Neto said. “Derrick is a great player, I’ve been watching him play since he was an MVP. I just came out there not afraid and be aggressive on defense, and try to make him make mistakes. I thought my teammates did a great job of helping me. Any time I got beat, Rudy Gobert was there to make him take a tough shot. It was great team defense.”
