The leader of this team is Gordon Hayward and this will be his team at least for this next year.  Similar to Andrei Kirilenko, Hayward will lead the Jazz in his first year after key players have left.  With scoring however this was not easy to decide on as I think it will be a 3 person race for the Jazz scoring title between Hayward, Kanter and Burke (yes the rookie).  I really think Kanter will push Hayward for around 17-20 a game and every night the Jazz could be lead by a different player.

    Richard Jefferson is very good three point shooter, and you mentioned Trey over him? Also, Kanter and Favors is not a “huge upgrade” over two guys who were averaging 9 and 7 RPG. They’ll probably put up very similar rebound totals.

    • Josh Haslam

      If Kanter and Favors average 10 a game that to me is a big upgrade solely because 4 rebounds a game more usually equates to a few extra wins in close games. Kanter and Favors rebound at a much higher rate than Al or Sap which even for a 9 and 7 rebounder from a starting PF and Center is considerably low compared to league average. As for not mentioning RJ I don’t think he’ll play very much to even be considered in the discussion but yes true he is a good three point shooter when given the minutes.
