Lets look at the Jazz in a couple yrs.
Its easy to see that the gaps we have are at the PG and SF. Looking at the trades that are out there, and potential partners, are there any real players or possible trades that we could want? We have trade pieces, but does anyone have young pieces that can grow with our young core? Lets face it, our face will change again next season, its time to build, but whats really out there?
I know many would like to see Sap and or Al stay, but is it realistic? Our core will be looking for a raise pretty soon, so wouldnt more young guys be helpful? How about draft picks, could we swap out our trade pieces for worth while draft picks?
A few interesting prospects filling our needs would be Muhammad Shabazz SF predicted top 4, Otto Porter SF predicted 6th to 18th, Michael Carter Williams PG predicted 7th – 10th, Trey Burke PG predicted 8th – 21st, and Myck Kabongo PG predicted late first round.
Utah Jazz draft picks are currently 17th and 24th so that leaves most of them out.
Current possible trade and current draft picks that could be available; Orlando 4th, New Orleans 5th, Detroit 9th, Minnisotta 10th, Dallas 11th, Charlott 14th, Boston 15th, Atlanta 16th.
Doesnt look all that encouraging, does it. Its probably why we stand pat through the trade deadline. Thoughts?
