There are so many posts about jazz trades on this blog site – possible trades, impossible ones, outrageously impossible ones… this is not one of them.
It seems that at least one of our four big men must eventually be moved, via trade, sign and trade, trade exception, just plain leaving for nothing etc … Its not that every team wouldn’t love four good big men, just that its expensive, and playing time could become an issue … I expect all four of our big men to sign for a lot of money when the time comes … but the Jazz can’t pay all four, and realistically only two will get huge contracts (from the Jazz).
Of course, so much will happen between now and the time that Jefferson and Millsap go into negotiations for their next contracts. By then we may not even have the same holes in our roster …who knows what could happen with Burks and Hayward … or really even how good Favors and Kanter will be at that time, good enough to replace Millsap or Jefferson? …never can tell.
I am a fan of the Jazz style, its what has gotten us here, its always been sound. When the time is right, I am confident that KOC will make the right move at the right time. Slow and steady has always been our style, I’m glad we aren’t the Knicks. Nobody can say what the right move is going to be – it could be moving up in the draft, it could be a huge trade, a free agent, nothing, and it might be simpler than that.
I for one am completely enjoying the team we have right now. If the right trade came along for the Jazz, they would have to do take it, but why rush anything? We are winning, the team looks to have good chemistry and energy. Players are developing, all of our young players are look at least as good as expected – no busts, and Jefferson, Millsap, and CJ are still pretty young in NBA terms …and real life.
I know KOC isn’t sitting at his computer doing espn trade machine right now … He is loving that we have four really good cards … and he knows when to hold ‘em better than most. I guess we’ll see what happens with the draft, and the trade exception, I’m not even thinking about it though, I’m thinking about a great season and a playoff run.
