Camp Invitations

The Jazz have invited two players to fall camp. Paul Harris from Syracuse and Wesley Matthews from Marquette are the invitees. Both seem capable of making the team, especially since Matt Harpring's decision to retire looms large, potentially opening up an extra spot on the roster for either guy. Harris offers tremendous athleticism, defense and rebounding (8.1 rpg). However, he's undersized for the offguard position (6-4) and doesn't shoot the ball particularly well from the perimeter. He possesses strong similarities to Shannon Brown of the Lakers. Wesley Matthews is a better overall scorer and shooter from the perimeter, but may not possess Harris' intangibles and athleticism. Matthews averaged 18.3 ppg and 5.7 rpg at Marquette.

Let's take Harris. Sounds like he combines Korver's size with CJ's shot. . . a perfect third option at that spot.

dupree sounds like a better guy to pick up than me.
