Roy, Milsap and Lee


How can you offer Hedo a "5" year deal for $50 million and turn around and only want to give a "4" year deal to Roy - just doesn't make sense.

 It's a lot of money to offer Roy, or anyone for that matter, but if they are going to being offering players this kind of money, how can you split hairs over one year - I'd sign him to 7 if I could. I kind of doubt Pritchard is in favor of the offer for four, and is having to put a good spin on the situation when he speaks to the press. It is frustrating to the fan base though, when a player like Roy isn't being locked up - that doesn't breed a healthy culture.

Milsap - should Utah match the Blazers offer, it will likely mean they will try to make a deal for Boozer or pay a great deal in luxary tax. While they may not always be happy with Boozer, having him dealt will likely mean the Jazz won't be as effective of a team on the court.  

Lee: If the Jazz matches the Blazers offer for Milsap, Lee could receive the next offer. I don't mind seeing this linger a bit, as there is a better chance the cost could go down. I like Lee's energy and ability to play some at the 5 in addition to the 4 - could give the team more flexibility when looking at roster moves later down the road.

If no one is signed, I think the team has the opportunity to get a better feel for how Bayless plays at the point, how or if Martell comes back from injury, how Oden develops and Batum develops, and what pieces may still be missing before going into the trade deadline.
