Landry Fields had a solid rookie campaign during the 2010-2011 NBA season. After earning a starting role on the New York Knicks, he was also selected to the NBA All-Rookie First Team. He wasn't nearly as successful this past year, and his numbers took a hit.
The reason for that? Carmelo Anthony being traded to the Knicks. With Carmelo controlling the ball, there were less touches to go around. The addition of Tyson Chandler and the emergence of Jeremy Lin didn't help the matter either.
Signing Fields to a contract would give the Jazz a solid, hustle player. He can be successful without needing the ball every possession. This would also give him a new environment and a better opportunity to reach his potential. A win-win situation.
Plus, he seems like a fun guy! Even if there aren't any Modell's in Utah.
