    I agree they trade jefferson. His defense is actually a liability. He is perhaps the very worst interior defender in the leagีe. He makes up for it with rebounding, but he's not only a bad defender, he's undersized (barely 6 10....and really its 6 9 and change). IF Kanter were further along the decision would be easy.

    But the ripples are felt through the roster. Hayward is really a three, who is adapting to the two. Truth is, stats wise, Hayward can be a number one option,. He has scored well when given that chance (small sample though). But moving Jeff frees up Hayward to play the three and gets alec burks off the bench. HE's a first round pick who looked great in summer league. He should be getting minutes. Corbin isnt my favorite coach however.......which should be noted. He really needs to limit Jeff some and play Favors already in a front line with Hayward and Milsap. Small ball, Karl does it all the time, among many others. Because Jeff sucks so bad defensively, this wouldnt be bad. Favors can rebound plenty well, as can milsap.
    A New Hope....

    If Lindsey is truly allowed to do his job and uses the metrics I think he uses, Jefferson will either be traded or walk away at season's end.

    things would be better with only kanter and favors leading the team as bigman. millsap and jefferson look too talented compared to them on offense, but game experience will cover it up. especially for kanter. the problem with kanter and favors on the floor is, they usually bump into each other on rebounds. kanter can't jump high as favors, so usually he is the one who gets the ball. but they have to learn to play together, learn their spots, areas etc.

    I'm still sticking to my two-year old prediction. They'd rather have the space than take on a bad contract in order to trade him.
    Fortune and glory, kid. Fortune and glory.

    I feel like just about every NBA analyst so far has written about our 'working, yet not working' logjam.
