I was watching NBA Coast to Coast pregame tonight with Michael Wilbon, Jalen Rose, and the infamous Bill Simmons. They were talking about possible trades they would like to see and to my surprise they brought up the Jazz. First Rose said he would like to see Bargnani and Calderon sent to Utah for Jefferson and Millsap. His reasoning is he believes the Jazz would be better with a better setup guy in Calderon. I like Calderon, but he’s 31 and defense isn’t exactly his strong suit. Bargnani would add some outside shooting but his defense and rebounding are below average. Personally I would pass on this one.The second trade they talked about was a three team trade that sent Millsap and Favors to Portland, Aldridge to the Wolves, and Kevin Love to the Jazz. Mainly because it is becoming more apparent that Love isn’t happy with the Wolves and Aldridge is no longer untouchable.Personally I love the idea of Kevin Love in Utah. Though I wouldn’t send Favors. I would send Burks and Kanter instead. Love and Favors would be amazing together especially with Love’s ability to shoot. And I actually think it is a trade that makes sense for everyone. Minnesota replaces an unhappy all-star with an all-star. Portland gets an all-star caliber player in Millsap that we all know they love along with two young pieces to help what may be the worst bench in basketball. The Jazz get their star and solve their logjam. And he’s only 24 so he can grow with our group.Anyway, just something to think about.
