Utah Jazz Randy Foye One Year Contract Not Enough

My first article previewing Randy Foye came to this conclusion:

The 29 year old Foye brings his six years of experience to the Jazz, and most importantly he brings a mixture of great outside shooting and tough defense. Though it may be tricky at times to figure out what rotation the Jazz will be using, I expect that Coach Corbin will bring Foye off the bench to both spark a scoring run with 11 points per game, and/or keep great defensive pressure. The Jazz have dramatically improved their three point shooting with three players in the top 40, and players to fill the gaps in the defense. Personally I think Randy Foye will be the leading edge of a very versatile and dangerous Utah Jazz bench.

My original assessment of Randy Foye during the Trade series of articles:

Point/Shooting Guard Randy Foye 6ft 4in – Foye was one of the guys brought in to improve both the perimeter shooting and defense. The Jazz were fortunate to pick up the player who had made the most three pointers in the league last season. His 1 year $2,575,000.00 salary would normally make him more of a trade asset, but considering why the Jazz brought him in, it is doubtful he would be traded. His trade value – C, value as a player for the Jazz – A, likely hood of being traded – D

Due to a mixture of injuries, and Utah Jazz Head Coach Corbin looking for the best lineup to Foye has found himself with more starts and minutes that first estimated. However as estimated Randy Foye has brought a needed spark to the offence mostly from the outside. The nine year veteran has made 93 three pointers this year, averaging .437. Also he has made 156 shots, averaging .416 in field goal percentage. These stats are the best he has put up since his 07-08 season. Randy Foye is able to flourish under the Utah Jazz play calling. Randy Foye’s current contract is set to expire at the end of this season. I think he has proven his worth enough to warrant offering him another contract.
