The Grass Is Always (Danny) Green-er: The Downbeat #1667

Do the Jazz like Danny Green? Also: Tibor Pleiss, FanPosts, the renamed Rocky Mountain Revue, and a musical farewell. It's your Tuesday Downbeat. Tomorrow -- well, tonight at midnight Eastern time, to be specific -- is the opening of the NBA free agent season. And we've heard a few rumors about who the Jazz will contact, including former Jazzman Paul Millsap...although that's less likely to happen now that Derrick Favors wasn't used in a trade during the draft. (I don't really think a Millsap-for-Favors deal makes sense for the Jazz, and I doubt one were ever on the cards, but that's...

Atlanta Hawks focused on keeping DeMarre Carroll, Paul Millsap

Mike Budenholzer told the media on Monday that the Hawks are focused on retaining the services of free agent forwards DeMarre Carroll and Paul Millsap. The Atlanta Hawks will enter free agency on Wednesday focused on keeping their core intact. Both DeMarre Carroll and Paul Millsap figure to be major pieces on the free agent market, but Mike Budenholzer told reporters on Monday that keeping both is what is most important for the Hawks going forward. "Our most important thing is keeping our team together, so the more time I have to spend time with Paul and DeMarre and our players, I...

NBA Draft 2015: Utah Jazz final mock draft round up, who will they pick at #12, #42, and #54?

Who will the Jazz take? I don't know . . . but if you read this you may have a leg up on what happens tonight! The NBA Draft is only hours away, and the Utah Jazz are involved in a whole bunch of rumors right now. Will they trade up? Will they trade down? Is Trey Burke being shopped? Is Derrick Favors being sent away to make room for Paul Millsap 's return? At this time of the year, unless it happens, I'm not going to put a lot of stock into any rumors that come out. I sat behind Woj at last year's draft and that guy knows what's up. After all, he's been bombing actual real trades for the...

Jonas Jerebko: the once and future King stopper

With LeBron James likely to be at the top of the mountain of the Eastern Conference for the foreseeable future, is it possible that Boston has found it's LeBron stopper* in the Swedish Larry Bird? *I understand that nobody can stop LeBron.  The Celtics couldn't in a four game sweep against Cleveland.  Jimmy Butler and the Bulls put up a good fight in the second round and lost.  Even the cream of the Eastern Conference Hawks couldn't thwart James with versatile defenders Paul Millsap and DeMarre Carroll. However, you can slow him down.  The Golden State Warriors didn't exactly stop James...

A closer look at DeMarre Carroll's free agency options

A look into what we can expect to surround Paul Millsap's decision this upcoming Free Agency period. DeMarre Carroll has been an integral piece for the Atlanta Hawks from 2013--15. Even though he was the lone non-All-Star for the 2014--15 starting lineup, he was undoubtedly the best defender and top hustle guy. Over his two seasons in Atlanta, he averaged 11.8 ppg, 5.4 rpg, 1.0 spg, and 1.8 apg for the Hawks. He will command a higher salary than the $2,442,455 he was paid this past season. To reiterate DeMarre's free agent status, I remind everyone that DeMarre's value to the Hawks from a...

A closer look at Paul Millsap's free agency options

A look into what we can expect to surround Paul Millsap's decision this upcoming Free Agency period. Paul Millsap had an incredible 2014--2015 season. He earned an All-Star Appearance, averaged 16.7 ppg, 7.8 rpg, 1.8 spg, 3.1 apg, and more importantly helped lead the Hawks to the Eastern Conference Finals. That is a mighty fine season that merits a substantial pay raise from his $9,500,000 salary this past season. That said, we shall take a look at the channels that Paul Millsap, or more accurately his agent, can pursue in receiving a raise as well as how this impacts the Atlanta Hawks. As...

Paul Millsap profile: Could he be Dirk's replacement?

Paul Millsap could be a potential replacement for Dirk Nowitzki. However, it will be difficult to lure him away from resigning with the Hawks. Paul Millsap is coming off one of the best seasons in his career. The nine-year veteran averaged 16.7 points, 7.8 rebounds, and 3.1 assists per game. These numbers were good enough for him to be selected to his second consecutive All-Star Game. Further, he was a key starter on a surprise Atlanta Hawks team that made it to the Eastern Conference Finals. However, Millsap's numbers and contribution shouldn't be surprising. Since joining the Hawks two...
