Kyrylo Fesenko continues to want more than one-year deal. It's not happening.

Fesenko hasn’t signed it, and nothing is imminent according to the Salt Lake Tribune.

Other teams may have some interest in Fesenko, but he’s not going to get much more than the qualifying offer. So, basically, any offer that he would get the Jazz would just match. Which means no team has made any offers.

The only offer Fesenko has is the Jazz offer. He is trying to wait out a better one, but at some point close to camp he is going to end up signing it and playing this season for the Jazz. Then, after the lockout he can decide what to do next year. (Or, he can jump to Europe where there likely would be interest in him.)

    Well, no.
    If I understand the arrangements correctly, Fesenko has one additional option:
    He could jump to Europe this season.
    If he did so, Utah would retain his rights. But he’s not under contract in the NBA for next season until he signs the contract, so he could jump to Europe right now, if he wants to, no?

    Please, he stinks. Send him packing and give the 1M to Iverson. Sloan loves the same jerks. This is not the military, get some players with ability and a personality. I would also dump Okur, who will play even more cripled than ever before. Put a team on the court that earns their shots, 7 foot guys are needed to block shots and rebound. Give Harrington some help with the dirty work or he will burnout and always be in foul trouble. Amundson would have helped, he is a killer when it comes to winning and hustle. Jerry Stackhouse is also available, who on our team can shoot better than him????

    I think he should go to Denver, we need a serious big, and he has young blood and this kid is as raw as they come. I think in 2-3 years, he could be a power house at center, similar to Lakers Andrew Bynum. With some hard work, this kid will come out on-top mark my words. I just hope denver has enough money to afford him this or next year…
