Quin Snyder Rumors

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.
