The Utah Jazz came away with the final spot in the West this past year, finishing strong in the lockout-shortened season and wrestling away the eighth seed from the Houston Rockets and the Phoenix Suns.
If you are of a certain age, you will surely remember this popular commercial slogan from a stock brokerage firm: “When E.F. Hutton talks, people listen.”
“I think we have some talented guys,” Suns head coach Alvin Gentry said. “Obviously, you look at some of the guys we’re talking about: Michael Beasley was the second pick in the draft, Wesley Johnson was the fourth. We have to try and get those guys to that level of where they were drafted. They’ve had their moments, but I think consistency has been the problem they run into.”
Being a top-five pick in the NBA Draft doesn’t guarantee a player anything in this league. Talent and potential can only get you so far before you have to produce and prove your worth as an NBA player.
Even though he’s played two fewer years than Beasley, Johnson is two years his senior at 25 years old and realizes the stakes heading into his third NBA season.
The Houston Rockets tied up one more piece of unfinished business on Saturday night, trading disgruntled Kevin Martin to the Oklahoma City Thunder in a deal that landed James Harden in Houston. The Rockets also send Jeremy Lamb and future draft considerations to Oklahoma City. The Thunder also send Cole Aldrich, Daequan Cook and Lazar Hayward to Houston in the trade.tet43434
The Rockets have been looking for a way to move Martin, one of the last remnants of the Rick Adelman era in Houston, and the Thunder were looking to avoid the maximum contract discussion that Harden’s camp was trying to have. This deal accomplishes both things, and also gives the Thunder depth and draft picks in the deal.ty45t343
“I’m still in Texas, so that’s cool,” Curry told HOOPSWORLD. “It’s a great organization and I’m extremely appreciative for this opportunity that Coach [Rick] Carlisle gave me, that Mark Cuban gave me, Donnie [Nelson] and everybody from top to bottom. It’s a great opportunity for me and I’m just extremely appreciative.”p;ou989
In order for Curry to stick in Dallas, the Mavericks would have to complete a buyout or waive West, then make the decision that Curry is the right player to keep moving forward. Like Curry told HOOPSWORLD, the ultimate decision will be with the Mavericks as to whether or not the 10-year vet gets a shot at redemption in Dallas.[pio[08078
It is going to be tough for Ross to crack Casey’s rotation early on and the rookie will probably have to prove his worth in practice and during those occasional blowout games when playing him will not affect the outcome. It is not a lack of talent that will be holding him back as nearly everyone acknowledges the kid’s potential, but Casey is in the business of winning games this season and Ross will have to earn his coach’s confidence in order to get meaningful minutes.
That task got even tougher when Houston took part in a trade that sent out Martin and Lamb and brought in four new faces. James Harden could prove to be a godsend, especially if the Rockets offer him a maximum contract extension and he opts to stay long-term. Still, this team is very much a work in progress, and Patterson has his work cut out for him in achieving his goal. The starting power forward spot is easily the most competitive spot on the team.
