One of the things that I appreciate about Sundiata Gaines is his attitude. Guy doesn't quit, complain, or showboat. Just works hard.
I think the Utah Jazz and Coach Jerry Sloan feel the same way, too. Asked to work harder in practice, Gaines has responded and he's in the mix of competition to make the roster.
I tell you, if the Jazz cut him, there are plenty of teams who would love to have a pass-first guard, tough defender, team guy, and all for the minimum contract.
I hope he somehow ends up playing for the Atlanta Hawks. That would be perfect.
