I'm really not picky about the return here.
I'd be happy to do something like Big Al and the GS pick for a young player and a TPE.
I was hoping for a Danish but might settle for a cake donut.
I'm afraid the Jazz would have to contribute the donute in this scenario, as payment for Orlando taking Al.
Banberry Cross (sp?) Maple with Bacon Sprinkles ought to get those Floridians moving.
Sean Elliott spent most of Spurs-Jazz talking about Gobert as if he were Godzilla. And he wasn't really wrong.
The Return of Mo....... to The Bucks Trade
The Jazz do it: Get a young PG with potential and a young SF with potential. Toliver is in there to balance the budget.
The Bucks do it: Get a veteran PG who can be relied on more than Jennings/Ellis and will fit in better with their new found focus on big men. Which leads me to Josh Smith. Would a Smith/Sanders front-court work? I don't know. Would they be fun to watch and rack up a ton of highlight-real blocked shots? Definitely.
The Hawks do it: I think they are ready to part ways with Smith, might as well gets something in return. Ellis will give them instant offense, which is something they lack. The combination of Ellis on a strong defensive team may be a good combination. Dalembert gives them an upgrade at backup center, or could even be played as a starter with Horford at PF. Although it would hurt their help defense, it would improve their ability to protect the rim in the painted area.
GSW pick to the Bucks.
It violates Numb's rule (good rule) in that players on rookie contracts don't get traded unless they suck, but I guess Smith could be considered a "star".
I don't know how the Hawks feel about their future with Smith, I thought I read somewhere they aren't really interested in re-signing him though.
Basically, 3 mediocre teams are swapping their mediocre "key players" in hopes of finding a better fit.
But c'mon, the idea of a Sanders/Smith front-court is pretty cool to think about, right?
The fact that there are no strong rumors of trades concerning the Jazz, is this a good sign, or bad sign?
