HoopsHype Utah Jazz twitter
Snyder saw Booker in the East last year. "He competes. That's the main thing you can say about him. He competes and ... that’s essential."
Quin Snyder credited new Jazz PF Trevor Booker’s “motor” and likes his physicality. “There’s a toughness about him. He just plays hard.”
Second straight good performance by the Jazz...they defeat the Nuggets 87-69, will go into tournament mode with a 2-1 record
Covington for three again.....playing very well in extended minutes
this has turned into YOLO basketball
Jazz lead this 74-55 with 5:39 remaining
Nick Covington with the corner three...his first summer league points
Would Exum be finished for this game?
Trey Burke has 11 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists
up 20 now, 60-40
jazz blowing this open in the third for the second straight game
Jazz lead Denver 51-35 with 5 remaining in the third
Thomas is too quick and athletic for Denver's bigs in this game
Jazz ball movement in the last two games has been very very good
Exum had four of Utah's nine turnovers
Malcolm Thomas has 12 and 7 rebs...Burke has nine points
for all of Dante Exum's struggles in that second Q, he has 6 pts, 3 rebs, 3 assists...
Jazz lead the Nuggets 44-31 at halftime....offense looked great in the second quarter, defense got better
Dante Exum has just committed three consecutive turnovers. Two of them on hard pick and roll traps.
Dante Exum atoned for a really bad pass by skying to reject a Denver layup attempt.
Trey Burke reading what is needed each game from his game very well
Trey Burke has nine points in 11 min
Jazz starting to create turnovers and get into transition....up 30-26 over the Nuggets with 7 remaining in the first half
Jazz take their first lead on Exum dunk
Clark hits another three...really shooting well
Jazz center Rudy Gobert is sitting out this game with left shoulder soreness.
That was a bad read by Clark there....
Jazz trail Nuggets 24-21 at the end of the first quarter
Without Gobert, Jazz getting eaten alive in the paint. Quite the difference with him on the bench
This spread-out Jazz offense resembles a baseball team passing around the horn sometimes. Five perimeter passes led to an inside bucket.
Did Jazz make some these same terrible defensive plays and we didn't notice because of Gobert the last 2 games?
Rodney Hood passes on an open 3-pointer, drives and dishes to Malcolm Thomas for a layup. Nice play.
Ian Clark has played well this week off the bench
Jazz are a different team defensively without Gobert on the floor
Jazz and Nuggets tied at 6-6 early
Best move of the week for Erik Murphy
Erik Murphy got the start for Gobert
Rodney Hood and Quincy Miller is a good matchup....Exum and Gary Harris another good matchup
tip off coming up right now for the Jazz
Just not quite ready to make this leap. http://t.co/EgvXv5ODis
Rest of the week for the Jazz is TBA. Playoff pairings will come out tonight. Will update when I know
Not sure who will start in Gobert's absence tonight, but my guess is either Brock Motum, or Greg Somogyi
Moreover, if 2nd year of Trevor Booker is not fully guarnteed then the 1st year number is a non issue, Jazz had to spend
Jazz center Rudy Gobert will not play tonight against the Denver Nuggets. He will rest a sore shoulder
We all loved this draft but who is this drafts Anthony Randolph or Derrick Williams. They exist
Omer Asik defensive rebounding % was 30.1 last year. Only DeMarcus Cousins was better
Derrick Favors once hurt his pinkie but told me he'd play on. Why? "I'm a man." That man turns 23 today. Cue birthday singers Exum & Hood...
behind Hayward and Burks. They think he's ready to contribute now. Hood, that is
If the Jazz make another signing, I expect it to be minor. Maybe another wing, but Jazz are counting on Rodney Hood for minutes
Jazz now about $55.2M with 11 guarantee deals, bringing them right below salary floor of $55.8M. Salary cap is $63M. Tax level's at $76.8M.
Jazz loved Booker during FA process. Mature. Has a fiancé and family. soft spoken and humble
Pretty clear majority of mins for Jazz will be Burke, Exum, Hayward, Burks, Hood, Kanter, Favors and Gobert. 8 young players
Booker is a "toughness" signing, source says. Jazz love his ability to finish in the paint
League source also confirms the terms of the deal as first reported....2 years $10 million
League source confirms Trevor Booker signing to the Salt Lake Tribune. Bulk of deal done in last few days
Booker started 26 of the final 30 for Washington last year and shot 56% over that period
Booker allows Jazz to stay big or go spread with Novak off bench when Kanter goes out. Plus Booker can start if injuries
With 4 years at Clemson and now 4 years at Washington (some tumultous years in DC) Booker could be a good locker-room influence on youngs
I would like to thank my teammates and the fans of DC for four great years in Washington. Thank you again for your support, I'll def miss u
Brine shrimp, or maybe Country Time lemonade reservoir. http://t.co/AbfDjmguEz
Booker signing rounds out Jazz front line. Think Favors and Gobert are the centers. Kanter is the PF with Novak or Booker off bench
I still think the Jazz will look to get one more veteran guard/wing player in free agency.
So Kanter is going to have to play well.
Booker also puts significant pressure on Enes Kanter. He's a guy who has the ability to challenge him for minutes at pf,
Booker is a good signing for the Jazz. Undersized. Can shoot it. Is athletic. Most importantly, is a bit nasty down there, which jazz need
New Jazz power forward Trevor Booker's deal is worth $10 over two years, Yahoo reported.
Not sure terms of Trevor Booker's deal, but his reported impending signing will likely give Jazz 11 players on guaranteed deals for 2014-15.
The Jazz will sign free agent Trevor Booker, per Yahoo. The 6-8 power forward has averaged 6.4 points and 5.1 rebounds in four NBA seasons.

Rodney Hood's 5 assists might be a bigger deal than his 29 points
All of a sudden, I think the Jazz have 8 pretty solid basketball players. How will that work in the west, though?
Jazz coach Quin Snyder on Rodney Hood's 29-point night: "I thought the best thing about him is he didn’t hunt his shot."
