Who will be traded?…I think I like scenario 2 better.
Scenario 1- We trade Mo Williams (8.5 M) + Al Jefferson (15 M) for Bargani (10 M) and Calderon (10.5 M)?
That would lock Bargani up for 3 years, and we would likely be able to sign Calderon at a discount next season if he plays well for us season. Calderon is a 9 apg guy, and could be one of the few guys in the league that would make the best use of the Jazz’s offensive system.. Toronto could throw in a 2nd round pick or a benchwarmer to make the numbers match up better.
Or…Scenario 2- Trade Milsap ( 8 M ) Jefferson ( 15 M ) and Foye (2.5 M) for Bargani (10 M), Calderon (10.5 M) and Ed Davis (3 M) .
Ed Davis was the 13th overall pick of the draft 2 years ago, and has averaged 7 ppg, 7 rbg, and 1 bpg in 24 minutes of play over 2 seasons . So we loose Jefferson and Milsap, but get back a brilliant stretch 4 in Bargani, and a solid defensive player/ rebounder up and comer showing alot of potential so far in Ed Davis. We also get to see how Calderon plays in a contract year for the Jazz. Mo Williams will have to play backup pg/sg as a sixth man for the jazz, but with Milsap gone, who better to step up as 6th man … for the year. . .
I like the idea of a frontline of Bargani, Favors, Kanter, and Ed Davis, assuming of course that Kanter and Ed Davis develop. They both show alot of promise shooting over 67 % from the free throw line last year. Ed is a Career 55 % shooter as well. We still keep Mo Williams and upgrade at PG while opening up the frontcourt a little bit to let the guys play into their potential. . .
Starters : Calderon, Hayward, Marv Williams, Favors, Bargani ( 4 guys who can bomb 3’s at a high percentage defensive stoppers in hayward williams and Favors.)
Bench: Mo Williams(can really bomb 3’s), Burks, and Ed Davis/Kanter splitting time as 8th/9th men getting 20 min each to start the season. Hayward would rotate to the three for half of his minutes giving burks and mo mo’ time to play at the one and two.
I think it’s worth a shot. After all we are going to loose Jefferson anyways next year and is it really worth it to pay Milsap 11 Milion a year for 4 years? I think this lineup would mesh better than the current team we have. . . but then again it is a bit of a risk.
