The question is would YOU prefer Pau, instead of Big Al and Paul on the Jazz?
Because of Pau’s knees, contract ($19m x 2 years) and age (32), it would be doubtful if the Jazz would have any interest. The Lakers probably wouldn’t want the extra salary ($15m + $7.2m) despite both contracts expiring, extra luxury tax (WOW!) and they’d have to waive, and pay, one of their other players to make room for the extra player.
Looking at it from the Jazz standpoint, it would relieve the front court roadblock for Kanter and Favors. Pau is a much better passer and commands more double teams, thus they would have better ball movement.
I can’t see this trade ever happening, but…
