Utah Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey is keeping all of his options open for Thursday’s NBA Draft. In an exclusive interview with Spence Checkets and Gordon Monsen on 97.5 FM, Lindsey made it clear the choices for the Utah Jazz are not cut-and-dried.
“When you order the players, that’s when you get violent disagreement (amongst basketball professionals). We (Jazz front office) are in the middle of lots of deliberations and conversations.”
A signature of R.C. Buford and Gregg Popovich’s front office in San Antonio is open discussion and strong, opinionated discussion. Lindsey has brought the same to the Utah Jazz.
If the Jazz hold tight at the #5 position, they are looking at the likes of Noah Vonleh, Dante Exum, Aaron Gordon, Marcus Smart and Julius Randle. When the players being discussed are ranging in age from 18 (until December) to 20, there’s a lot of room for opinions, because nothing is set in stone for these players.
