George Karl and the Nuggets are reportedly going their separate ways. Karl, who won coach of the year this past year was fired after asking for an extension on his contract. His contract is due up at the end of next year and apparently management doesn’t have him in their future plans.
That being said the Jazz need to go after him. ASAP!!! After a game this past year when the Nuggets blew out the Jazz on their home floor he stated that the bench should be the starters and the starters come off the bench for the Jazz. Players like Favors, Hayward, Carroll and Kanter needed more minutes cause they brought more energy and kept the Jazz in games. The Jazz need someone that knows the team and which players are best to put on the court to give you a chance to win. (something Ty just can’t seem to grasp)
The Jazz hiring Karl and firing Corbin is a long shot but if he was interested the Jazz should offer him whatever they can to get him. Teams like the Clippers and Nets I’m sure are lobbying for him right now but that doesn’t mean a team that already has a coach can’t go out and bring him in.
Karl could change everything for an organization like the Jazz in a good way. He knows what he’s doing and I wish him the best wherever he ends up.
