Millsap expected to draw lots of interest
This summer, Paul Millsap will generate considerable interest around the league as a free agent. Said Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin: "He does so many different things. On defense he does a good job of getting his hands on the ball, playing his man. Offensively, he scores in different ways running the floor, on the block, popping out."
Korver sees 'bright future' for Jazz youth
Atlanta's Kyle Korver likes the Jazz's young core of players. "They are really making a mark in the NBA," he said. "People know they are good kids who work hard and play the game the right way. They're obviously well-coached. They've learned how to be pros, which a lot of these kids don't get to do. … They have a bright future."
Hayward's got 'a lot of game'
Asked specifically about Utah's Gordon Hayward, Korver said, "He's got a really high ceiling, for sure. Coming in, people labeled him as just a shooter, probably because he's white. But he's got a lot of game. He can put the ball on the floor. He defends well. Just a solid all-around player. … A really tough guy to guard."
