So the Kings signed veteran Zach Randolph in the offseason and are bringing Labissiere along slowly. It’s not uncommon to see Labissiere staying after practice to work on post moves, honing his physicality. Randolph said Labissiere’s “upside is through the roof” and that he needs to remain patient and work hard. “I tell him, ‘Just keep playing,’” Randolph said. “He played good (Saturday). The kid works hard and that’s all you can do, keep working and that’s what Skal does every day. He puts his time in and he works.”

Think about it. It’s fair to wonder if the Jazz even wanted to win. Put yourself in Dennis Lindsey’s shoes. The Jazz GM has a solid team, a frontline center and an exciting rookie to build around. But he needs another star. The top of the draft looks chock full of them. So maybe, with your team stinking up the joint in January, you sit Gobert a few more weeks and join the race to the bottom. Earlier this week, I asked Jazz coach Quin Snyder if he ever had those conversations. “Never,” Snyder said. “That’s just not how we do things. There was never any kind of suggestion of that. In the larger picture, we’re finding out who we are. This experience right now, having to compete for a spot, there is value in that. Things might happen — you can’t take anything for granted. The result ultimately isn’t the only reflection of where you are. The goal for me is to continue to improve. Not X wins, or how many in a row, but how can we keep getting better. It’s how we started the beginning of the year. It’s how we are now. We aren’t overthinking it.”
