Dennis Lindsey Rumors
Rudy Gobert: [When Gordon Hayward announced he was going to the Boston Celtics], I know it was hard for [Jazz general manager] Dennis Lindsey, because when he announced it, the biggest free agents were already gone. I know Danilo Gallinari signed the day before in LA, so it was frustrating… So we just said okay. We were here because of defense, so let’s try and become an even better defensive team.
Neither Exum nor Lindsey would speculate about a timeline for his return, although they hinted it could be for most of the season. “Right now, we’re not looking at that, just focusing the rehab and see where that takes us,” Exum said. “I’m not really putting a timeline on it at the moment.
Jody Genessy: I think Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey nailed it on the head when he spoke about protests and the current state of the union:
Dennis Lindsey said in early July that the Jazz’s new floor general compares favorably to Jason Kidd. For his part, the 6-foot-4, 190-pound Rubio shied away from that comparison Wednesday but appreciates Lindsey’s belief in him. “Having the GM talk that good about me, it’s great,” he said. “The confidence that they showed in me from the beginning, it’s awesome, and now I have to answer that confidence with good games. I have confidence in me, and I’ve worked hard this summer. I think I can bring a lot to that team.”
