KLove is teh #7 cuz he dominations teh playoffs.
This trade makes me wanna vomit.
(first update) Offseason to-do list:
1. Let Mo, Foyeeee3, Al (s&t?), Watson, and Tinsley go.
2. Re-sign Carroll
3. Draft McCollum, Schroeder, and Giannis (leave the latter two in Europe for a year [maybe two years for Giannis]).
4. Sign Tony Allen
5. Try to keep Millsap. If that doesn't work, explore s&t options.
6. Remove Corbin. Hire Brad Stevens or SVG.
7. Sign Calderon to a one-year (2 max) deal, or see if the cash-strapped Lakers will let us absorb Nash's last year.
No to any deal that has Jefferson staying.
When one door closes, another doesn't open....instead, I find myself being locked in a room with padded walls and no windows.
I say no to the trade. I don't like Love that much. He is a fantastic rebounder and a good offensive player but plays NO defense. Love and Jefferson both have 2 assists per game. Al has 1 TO, Love has 2 TO. Love is averaging 35% fg this year, 20% from 3. He is whining and complaining about being in Minnesota. He plays no defense. He plays no defense. He plays no defense.
I have just lived through the Boozer and Jefferson era (hopefully). I have two young bigs who play defense and have potential that can equal/surpass Love. And I know we love to over-rate our players, but Kanter and Favors could be the real deal, unlike so many of the players we have hoped for (Alec Burks). Why would you give that up?
We all whine about wanting top picks, but are ready to throw away one that we actually do have for a very, very good player, but a player that has never led, never won, never done what we want a player to do. Love is a Boozer-type player.
Priority #1 for the Jazz: Get a new coach.
Priority #2: Make sure Al is gone.
After that, the sky is the limit.
Hell I'd probably trade Millsap and Jefferson for Love. But Favors feels like a throw in on that trade. He is worth more than a throw in and so is Kanter.
Please FO, Please do the right thing and FIRE CORBIN. Then let all of Millsap, Mo, Tinsley, Watson, and Jefferson walk. Re-sign Carrolle and get a real freaking PG.
I'd rather have Favors than Kevin Love. Not a fan of Kevin Love.

Swap in Kanter for Favors and I'd consider it, begrudgingly. I see no reason for Minnesota to do this, they would need more incentive.
I'd rather have Kanter and his potential than Love and his contract. Love has never won anything or led his team anywhere. Plus Al often outplays him when they're matched up.
However, there is some grumbling around Philadelphia about lining up a trade for a center.

Short list at #21: Steven Adams, Giannis Adetokunbo, Sergey Karasev, Nate Wolters
