    Eric Gordon?

    Now if he doesn't want to play in New Orleans I really doubt he would be happy about coming to Utah. But I think he could be a could fit for our PG needs. The other issue is he is injury prone. But when we plays he is amazing. He also has a fat contract. Im not sold on him but something to think about.

    Trade Al Jefferson, 2 1st round picks for Eric Gordon.

    Future lineup:

    Eric Gordon
    Alec Burks
    Gordon Hayward
    Derrick Favors
    Enes Kanter


    From position 1-3 we would have great play makers and passers so it could work. Gordon is not a traditional PG but in this type of lineup its feasible. Something to consider.

    Would people rather have Gordon or Bledsoe?

    Then put Burks as a PG, either way Gordon is still a good playmaker.

    I'd take Bledsoe between the two. No injuries, better contract, younger, higher ceiling, he's a two-way player, exciting player, fills a hole, great dunker. I really want Bledsoe on the jazz

    The key is "play", and he doesn't. Why would we want an expensive player who is hurt all the time? Move on!

    I guess.... Although realistically I we take on a contract like that we will be in a similar situation to okc with Perkins. Being like okc is better than anything we have had since 1999 though.....

    I dream having Bledsoe as PG and Eric as SG. Sending Foye and Mo away. Jazz would win the league.

    Until Eric Gordon has a season where he can play at least 75 games, I'll pass on him. Huge contract and barely makes it onto the court. Sounds like Boozer all over again or worse he could end up being the second-coming of Agent Zero (minus the gun charges).

    Agree. Bledsoe has great potential and we'd still get the benefit of a rookie contract for another year.

    Obviously I think everyone would choose Bledsoe. He just fits the Jazz too perfectly.

    But if we can't get him Gordon would still be very good. He could be our Stephen Curry.

    Screw it. Lets get both of them. Millsap to clippers for Bledsoe and odom. Jefferson to Nola for a pelican and Eric Gordon. But they need to throw in that dude who doesn't know what eyebrows look like either. He looked like a good backup to d fave.
