Jazz GM Dennis Lindsey thinks those who claim a Favors/Kanter pairing can't work made a "premature opinion." DL: "Frankly, that's nonsense."
Dennis Lindsey laughed when asked about young players getting big minutes but not starting together until late. "I heard that’s a topic."
Anyone want to transcribe four hours of interviews in exchange for a cold pastrami burger and onion rings?
Dennis Lindsey said Jazz management and Ty Corbin will take a short while to "decompress" before any decisions are made about future coach.
The Locker Cleanout Crown Burger tradition lives on. http://t.co/iqOGSYNXYV
Dennis Lindsey : I love guys who can pass the basketball
Lindsey did not hint about the future of Tyrone Corbin but said after time to "decompress" a decision will be made in "short order."
Lindsey on the team's picks/salary structure: "We have a chance to get it right for the Utah Jazz."
Jazz GM Dennis Lindsey on Gordon Hayward: "I think he needs to have more fun."
Dennis Lindsey on Gordon Hayward: "I think he needs to have more fun."
Dennis Lindsey: the concern on Derek Favors and Enes Kanter playing together is non-sense
John Stockton will help scout talent for the Utah Jazz at the Portsmouth Invitational while there to watch his son David work out.
After putting me on the spot — and I truthfully said he's an All-NBA defender — Enes Kanter smiled. "I’m just playing, man."
Asked Enes Kanter if defensive improvement would be summer focus. His response: "I’m not good at it you think?" I was asking for a friend.
To sum up media day: Jazz hated losing but felt they learned, some players wish they would've played more, hard work ahead, pizza's gone.
Trey Burke: "We're a young team, but at some point we've got to stop saying that."
Trey Burke wants to be in playoffs next year. "That's the goal."
Enes Kanter on pairing with Derrick Favors: Some people think we cannot play together. I think it's crazy.
Asked if he will work with Karl Malone again this summer, Derrick Favors said, "We'll see."
Derrick Favors on whether 20-10 is his goal: "20-10? 25-15."
Hayward says hasn't thought about contract ;) during season but it's coming up. "That's why you have an agent."
Free agent to be Marvin Williams: "I can't imagine being anywhere else."
Source: Decision on Tyrone Corbin's future with the Jazz could come as soon as this weekend.
Jabari Parker is entering the draft, according to reports.
Asked about criticism of him all season, Ty Corbin delivered a shot: "Misery loves company. There are a lot of miserable people out there."

No Tip Off planned for tomorrow - today's was a little extra long to carry you through. Thanks for season long commitment
Trey Burke, Rudy Gobert, Ian Clark, Malcolm Thomas and Erik Murphy all expect to play with Jazz summer league. Diante Garrett will if asked.
A drawing to determine drafting order between 4-5 Jazz and Celtics (in case they don't win lottery) will take place Friday, according to SI.
Of local interest, I put Burke No. 2 for ROY (helped team win more than Oladipo), Hornacek No. 2 COY and Lillard/Big Al third-team All-NBA.
Voting for NBA awards was tough. My winners — Coach: Popovich; Rookie: MCW; Sixth: Crawford; Improved: Dragic; Defensive: Noah; MVP: Durant.
As much as I may get mad at mom dukes for some of the things she tweets she my biggest supporter lover her to death
Lots of chat about Kanter and Gobert. If either improves their weakness (Rudy's O, Enes' D), they both have potential to be top-notch bigs.
Jazz players keep tweeting about Vegas tomorrow. Hope they realize they have one last incredible interview opportunity before they're done.
Then back to the city Friday #614
Vegas tmrw for a lil vaca!
Quick mention of Jeremy Evans 18 points, 11 rebounds, 3 steals and 3 blocks
Diddy worth 700 m's now
Been a bizarre few months since, but I really appreciate y'all putting up with me along the way.
Trey Burke clutch free throw shooting 16 of 17 5th best in the NBA - Korver (100% on 19 attempts)
We made it (Soulja boy's voice)
Thanks for your support Jazz fans. You're the best. Looking forward to a bright future.
Jazz's Gordon Hayward finishes averaging 16.2 points, 5.1 rebounds and 5.2 assists in 77 games.
Biggest downfall from winning is that the Jazz will fall out of the top five if they lose tiebreaker with C's and another team moves up.
Tonight wraps my 5th year as radio voice of the Jazz and 34th year as a Jazz fan. Loved them all. Honored to be part of Jazz Nation
Strange league: Corbin getting killed for winning. Nothing about Mark Jackson/Warriors shamelessly losing finale to preserve pick in '12.
If I'm reading correctly, Jazz win tonight cost them 15/16 ping-ping balls in the lottery: 119 for 4th-worst record, 103/104 now.
If Corbin were more dastardly, he could've really derailed Jazz's future by just missing out on playoffs and finishing 14th in the lottery.
By my unofficial count, the Jazz trailed for a total of 67 seconds in double-OT win at Minnesota.
Jazz win in 2OT to finish season 25-57 and avoid tying 24-win 1979-80 squad as worst in Utah history.
Finally. The rebuilding season is over for the Jazz. NBA Finals campaign begins in six-and-a-half months.
Ty: practice off tomorrow!
Crowd: an outrage!
Trey Burke knocks down the 3. Jazz up 5. This is it, right?
The Jazz and T-Wolves will keep playing until Jabari Parker declares himself eligible for the NBA draft.
Jeremy Evans finishes his break through season wiith 18 points and 11 rebounds
Jazz just advanced to the second round of the postseason. Try to contain yourselves.
Richard Jefferson. Grand finale!
Jazz have trailed once in this game, 56-55. It's still going to overtime. Season in a nutshell, no?
This overtime is the Jazz's postseason.
I love when the Jazz go into the postseason.
What is dead may never die.
