Quin Snyder Rumors
Eric Walden: Quin Snyder, on Derrick Favors’ effort: “He’s just looking for different ways to impact the game. If he can’t do one, he’s not shutting down and saying, ‘Well, this isn’t going’ — he’s finding something else he can do to help the team.” pic.twitter.com/UyPbuPX4NL
Eric Walden: Quin Snyder, on Dante Exum’s injury: “You just feel awful, for him first and foremost. … My discussion with him has been similar to other times he’s had those setbacks, and figure out a way to use it, and we’ll see what happens going forward. … But it’s a blow for the kid.”
Lindsey’s final text of his sleepless Thursday night was sent to Jazz coach Quin Snyder at 4:53 a.m. ET. Lindsey didn’t fall asleep until 6. He was up a few hours later, communicating with Jazz president Steve Starks and vice president of player personnel Walt Perrin. He had ACC Tournament games to scout later in the day. “I’m very confident in our community,” Lindsey said. “Our community has a good heart. I’m very confident in our organization. And we hope to lead from the front moving forward.”

Quin Snyder recently said that you’re the most impactful offensive player on the team. Do you feel like your offensive abilities get overlooked because everyone knows you for your dominant defense? Rudy Gobert: In the game of basketball, there are a lot of things that you don’t see in the stats. On both ends of the floor, on offense and defense, there are times where you make a big impact for your team, but it’s not going to show on the stat sheet. For the people who don’t watch the games, they’ll just see who looked good based on the box score, you know? Even I do it at times. When I’m looking at the other games that were played, I just look over the box score and think, “Oh, this guy was good,” and, “That guy played really well.” But I didn’t see all the things each guy did that doesn’t show up in the stats. That’s how it’s always going to be. I just have to focus on getting wins. My [contributions] will always go underappreciated because they don’t all show up in the stats. But at the end of the day, if you have your team winning, that’s what is more important.
Quin Snyder isn’t afraid of a good idea, no matter where it might come from. Even if it’s from the Domino’s Pizza delivery guy. “When I was coaching in college, I ordered a pizza after the game one night, and the delivery guy was generous enough to offer me a lob play on the back of the Domino’s box,” Snyder said. “It was a good play.”
