Also the lack of a 3 shot doesn't mean a guy can't do well as a pg. It's an ignorant statement to say he won't fit in with out a 3 shot on the jazz. NC was a much better team with then without him. Why would he fit in in NC, and not the Jazz.

Phoenix plays Sebastian Telfair in front of Marshall, I don't think they are all that attached to him.
I wouldn't do this trade, but I don't see why Phoenix wouldn't. Millsap is better than any player they have and this would give them a better chance to re-sign him when the time comes. They will be within the top 10 for this draft, so they aren't losing a pick or anything in the immediate future.

If it was F'Al and we knew Frye would be healthy at some point, I'd strongly consider doing it. We'd get a big back who demands less playing time than F'Al (about 25 minutes a game) and would be insurance as a potential 3rd big if God forbid Millsap walked this summer. We'd also possibly get the point guard of our future which we've been craving. We'd possibly get another 1st round pick this coming draft which would possibly give us three. And most importantly, we'd be rid of the sieve known as F'Al.
Give Foye to PHX too and its a deal.

Just to clarify, the "UK" in my username stands for United Kingdom rather than U of Kentucky.
FWIW, I sent this idea to Locke and twitter and he shot me down pretty quick. In his opinion, both teams say no. He said the deal breaker for Pheonix would be the draft pick. From the Jazz's perspective, he said that the Jazz say no because of Frye's injury. I think it was more his opinion rather than anything he heard from the organization, but he said that Marshall will not be a starting level point guard in the league.
Although this specific deal may not work, I think that trading for a serviceable backup big, a good point guard and/or draft picks is what they Jazz would look for in a deal for Paul Millsap.
I agree to a degree, but wouldn't this fly in the face of all the hullabaloo about improving our outside shooting? Seems to run counter to our fundamental and expressed talent strategy......
