    Al third most likely player traded before deadline

    According to ESPN insider- Would love to share, but these mods on my ****. Nothing really compelling though. Just said word around the league is that the Jazz really like Paul and Al is the odd man out. They also said that Bledsoe is likely traded at the dealine regardless of what we hear. I think he was 7th. Love to work that one out.

    what do you mean easier? al jefferson is easier to trade because he is the better player. its tougher for the jazz to trade him for the same reason.

    i guess we desagree on that point. paul will fit into basically any teams offense that he is traded to, jefferson has to have an offense built to fit him. paul is addaptable, jefferlog not so much.

    What gives you that indication? That the Jazz haven't shown the slightest bit of interest in extending him?

    I don't quite know how Gortat would fit in here unless both Paul and Al are gone, but I've always liked him. I can only imagine the Suns trade him to get something nice because he's been a very good player, on a good deal, and the Suns aren't strung out financially.

    You can't extend Jefferson and pay him less that 90% of what he currently makes. Even the Jazz FO doesn't think he's worth that.

    That doesn't sound like a FO that's "in love with" an immensely flawed player.

    Here's the problem with trading Al.
    You can't just expect Al- a post heavy player- to go into a pick and roll or a fast offense and make things work. I'm not sure how trades are looked at, but this should be one of the things you look at if you're an opposing team is if you're going to get Al, is he going to fit with your future offense/players?
    IE- Houston/Lakers don't want Al.

    I'm a broken record that won't get turned off. I'll try harder.

    The front office never offered the level of money that Jefferson makes to Millsap, either, despite frequently proclaiming their love for Millsap. Why would you think the two (money and words of appreciation) are connected?
