We're not trading Hayward, but I'd think about these trades:
Dudley has a nice contract, fills a need at SF and can shoot 3's consistently. I really like Dragic. Let Millsap walk next year and we still have a rotation of Favors/Gortat/Kanter which is awesome.
Maybe get the suns to give up a first rounder either this year or the next or swap with ours
Would you trade hayward for their unprotected pick? I think I may. Especially if Jazz brass decides that Burks is the guy at the 2. Hayward is not a three so we really have a log jam with two of our young four. If we could parlay Jefferson and Hayward into that unprotected pick Id do it and hope Bazz' is there when we go.
hate is. hayward is probably my favorite player on utah right now.. i dont think the ungarenteed turnaround of a draft pick would be worth hayward.

I just don't see us giving up Hayward unless it was for a good lotto pick plus a nice player.
Dudley and Gorat are decent, but nothing special. Nothing to trade Hay, and our leading scorer for.

I think the Suns have asked about Gordon Hayward, I don't think the Jazz would deal him unless it's for a top 20 player in the league. Unless their lottery pick is in the mix, I think Gordon is off the table. I could see the Suns sending Gortat & Dudley to Utah for Jefferson and one of our picks. I think that's pretty fair for both sides. I really hope the Jazz don't pull off a trade like that. I would love to have Gortat on the Jazz, but not at the expense of Favors & Kanter. Gortat would just perpetuate the problem that we are dealing with now.
I would do Al and Hayward for Gortat, Dudley, Marshall and their UNPROTECTED pick. We would have 3 picks and including a top 10. If we could turn those into a star we would be set...
Unless we moved Say Milsap and both our picks for Bledsoe. Turning Jefferson, Milsap and 2 middling picks for Gortat (thrid Big), Dudley ( 3 point shooter with better all around game than Foye) and our PG of the future being Bledsoe would turn this team around in a hurry. Reality is we trade two first round picks forthis package as I dont believe either player are in our future plans.
