Jazz won't make hasty decisions

Jazz officials are trying to deal with the fact that their streak of 19 straight playoff appearances is in serious jeopardy.

It isn't the Jazz fault that Juwan Howard made $20.6 million last season after his team won only 17 games.

And you can't blame them if Vin Baker made $12.3 million after scoring 5.2 points per game during the regular season while Dikembe Mutombo made $16.1 million for scoring 1.8 points per game in the playoffs.

So stop pointing your finger at Larry H. Miller for not paying Brad Miller $68 million over the next seven years after the Jazz lost out on Elton Brand, Andre Miller and Corey Maggette this offseason.
