    Didn't expect to see this thread until March.

    BN Backseat GM would try to trade Sap for Calderon or Sessions and extend Al as cheap and frontloaded as possible with the mutual understanding that he is not guaranteed to start.

    I think everyone in the league, outside of Jazzfanz, thinks Al is more valuable than Millsap.

    We need to find a team that's desperate to compete and make their star player happy. That's the kind of team we'd trade Al Jefferson to. Kind of like Portland sending Gerald Wallace to Brooklyn for the lotto pick that became Damian Lillard.

    Find a team in the lottery who has a big-name player about to become a free agent who might leave if that team doesn't improve--Dallas, Lakers, etc.

    Also find a team that could lose a big-name free agent--Philadelphia (Bynum), Atlanta (Josh Smith), etc.

    Or, send Al Jefferson to Toronto for a bad contract (Bargnani) and their lottery pick this year. I'd trade Al Jefferson and the GSW pick for Calderon and a Toronto's lotto pick.

    Maybe we do a 3-way trade that sends Al to Boston, sends Rondo somewhere, and gives the Jazz a lotto pick and a player from that third team.

    jazzfanz are in the league?

    If you mean fans, that's almost definitely not true. Past threads on realgm come out easily in favor of Millsap fwiw.

    Jefferson's our best player by a mile. How anyone wouldn't want to retain him is beyond me.

    He plays one end of the court and is going to get a big contract. I would still argue that Favors is better. He plays one end of the court and is at least respectable on the other end.
    Welcome aboard Snyder, Exum and Hood. Here is to hoping this season is more entertaining than the last 3.

    I, HeavenHarris, hereby pledge to my fellow JFC'rs that I will no longer give out neg-reps. All it does is cause negative things, like fights, drama, bitching, ill will, bad feelings, etc.
    Love, not hate, is the answer bros and moes.

    I think I am ready to cast off all Mr. Dutch opinions, on account of his Al-fandom
