Should the Utah Jazz pursue Jrue Holiday?

The Utah Jazz have two quality, young point guards in Dante Exum and Trey Burke. Exum still has a world of potential to realize, and if he ever does, could be one of the best point guards in the league. While Burke doesn't have Exum's potential, he showed the ability to be one of the best back up points in the NBA, which is no small thing by any measure. Yet, neither of these guards...

As a result...

The Utah Jazz should stay the course

Patience. That one word has been the constant message coming from the Utah Jazz front office for the past two seasons. At the beginning of the 2014-15 NBA Season, it appeared that Jazz fans were in for another rough year. At one point before the mid-way point of the season, the Jazz were a dismal 16 games below .500.
