There were trade rumors yesterday of a Jazz making a deal with the Hornets for the #10 pick. The trade rumor was this:
And yes, I have heard the Milsap/Burks/47 for Ariza and #10 rumor and I LOVE IT! Or, swap Hayward for Milsap #EitherOr
First: the Jazz never leak their deals and I imagine they stress that strongly to whatever team they are talking to about a deal.
Secondly: the Jazz get fleeced in that deal, taken to the cleaners, wow. Why on earth would the Jazz give up a proven player in Millsap, a young talent in Burks and a 2nd rounder for an unproven commodity in the 10th pick in the draft and a mediocre player like Ariza.
Chad Ford also mentioned in his chat yesterday that Millsap is one of the names being thrown around for the 10th or 11th pick in the draft.
How much is Millsap worth to you? Would you be willing to give him up just for a 1oth or 11th pick?
Millsap represents everything that is right with the Jazz. He has proven himself over and over again in the NBA. Millsap works hard and every year has improved a different aspect of his game.
The Jazz do have to decide if they feel they can keep Millsap when his contract is up next season. Will a different team throw an offer at him that Millsap can’t refuse, does Millsap even feel loyalty to the Jazz to offer that hometown discount or is it strictly business?
Does Millsap even want to reconsider resigning with the Jazz knowing that Favors is the future? Millsap has stated he is a starter and does not want to come off of the bench. If Millsap’s best role with the team is coming off the bench and doesn’t want to, does that change on whether we trade him or not?
Our questions about Millsap will be answered in the next year. But for now let the rumors fly!
It will be an interesting off-season or it will be a boring one, you never can tell with the Jazz .
