In my opinion there are plenty of moves that could possibly take place between now and next season. I’ll list a few of the moves I think could improve the team.
1. If the Jazz take Kanter with the third pick it is going to create a logjam in the frontcourt. Lets face it.. Millsap is a very undersized 4 and quite frankly is horrible on defense. Not because he doesnt try, but he just cant match up with the Pau Gasols of the NBA. I think the Jazz should make a trade for a wing player if this scenario comes up.
Andre Iguodala and Jodie Meeks
Paul Millsap and CJ Miles (After picking up option of course)
This gives the dad a legitimate starting 3, granted he isnt a star or anything but it gives the Jazz a balanced starting lineup. Jodie Meeks is someone who can come off the bench behind Hayward and score the ball.
2. Brandon Knight could cause some shake ups at the point guard spot if drafted. Keep in mind i dont think Devin Harris should be traded before this season starts. If Knight pans out though, Harris is gonna need to be traded while he still has value. I wanted to know what you guys think we could get for Harris on this one?
3. Its been reported by Chad Ford that the Knicks really want to move up and get Jimmer. The only assets they can use to move up there are Tony Douglas and Landry Fields. We could package the 12th pick and say.. Raja Bell or someone like that and get Landry Fields who is a great young player with the toughness to play here.
4. Some free agents that the Jazz could go after are Aaron Afflalo, Jeff Green, Delonte West, Caron Butler, Wilson Chandler, Tayshaun Prince, Mike Dunleavy, Shannon Brown, Marc Gasol, Shane Battier, Michael Redd, Jason Richardson, Thaddeus Young, Greg Oden, Marcus Thornton, Leandro Barbosa, Nick Young and Josh Howard.
Just throwin names out there and wanted to get some opinions. Thanks for reading and you can follow me on twitter @brandonwhitley9 if ya’ll want
