    Question Jefferson/Millsap: Expirings or Trade Chips?

    Should the Jazz trade Big Al and Sapman for better fitting pieces or let them come off the books and just pocket the savings?
    Way I see it, with Kanter and Favors, Big Al and Sap are luxuries, not necessities.
    I think the jazz should trade them for more help in the back court.

    what do you guys think

    I have always predicted we'd just allow Al to expire. Sap I figured we'd trade at some point .. rather than overpay.

    Not sure if i should say welcome back or if I should be worried.
    Cy is a Baker, he doesn't work fast food. Don't make that mistake, he doesn't like it.

    hmmmm interesting, any reason why the different thoughts on both of them?

    fyi for everyone, salary amount left on their contracts:
    big al: $15,000,000
    sapman: $8,603,633

    For one thing, there's no way Big Al demands that kind of pay check if he continues to play the way he's been playing.... and that goes for Millsap as well.
    I say we let them continue to play, and see if they can pull their heads out of their asses. But at the same time, neither of them should be receiving more than 25 minutes a game.
    It's to early to start talking a trade, unless the FO has already put feelers out there for both players.
    The only players that should be off the table is Hayward, Favors, and Kanter IMO.

    Because I have never felt anyone would give us much for Al .. and we'd likely be able to do no more than swap bad contracts.
    I always felt Paul would be a decent trade chip.

    We should've offered Al for Iguodala or Danny Granger years ago. Obviously Granger is hurt now though.

    Years? 2 years ago (the minimum for "years"), the Jazz were 5-3, and had a big man rotation of Al-Sap-Elson-Fesenko-Evans(-AK). Were you really buying on Elson/Fesenko holding down the fort at the 5 at that point?
