Monson: Lessons learned about the Jazz

Youngsters need to work hard, shooters need to practice, and GM needs to keep dealing.

It’s fantasy, but think about how great Favors and Hayward would be if they had a set-up guy like Tony Parker or Steve Nash. Wow. What if they had half that guy? Devin Harris is not that half-guy.

O’Connor must make changes.

The Jazz will grow internally as young players improve, but that’s far from enough. The front line has already been discussed, as has the lack of perimeter shooting and problems at the point, but the Jazz also are short a scoring wing player. Whether O’Connor, who has some flexible options, fills those holes by making a move to get in the high draft or via trade, we’ve learned this much: He can’t sit tight and compete against the best teams in the West.
