    I'm thinking we could still score enough after this trade, especially given the ball movement that has been on display lately. Of course, this only works if Favors is ready to play. I'm thinking Milwaukee owes a first to CLE and SAC. I'm flexible with the Jazz sending out the GST pick if that's what it takes. Would be nice to get a 2nd (like 31-35) from CLE or SAC though if that's the case.

    That is a crazy trade. While I like Cousins and Robinson's talent I don't think it makes sense to trade Millsap and Jefferson. Also Sacramento doesn't really need another gunner guard in Monta Ellis to go with Brooks, Jimmer, Thornton and Tyreke. So that is really creative but I don't think Sacramento is gonig to send out Cousins without an very good young big coming back.

    With a lot of talk about the Kings being sold, I thought that this trade really clears their books for a future owner. Ellis would likely opt-out. Sac gets a young C, a 1st and lots of cap space. They still have Hayes and some other longer term contracts, but nothing terrible.

    I thought Robinson would be a cheap, long term replacement to Millsap, although I wouldn't move him if we couldn't get Cousins. I would also be open to the Jazz taking on another longer (2-3 year) contract at 4-7/year if it meant a trade that nets them young bigs like Cousins/Robinson.

    That trade would have to break some kind of record. Sac would need plenty of picks from all parties and would want to be rid of all bad contracts since this would begin a total reboot.

    Tell me how many times Slow Al has done that. You count them using the fingers of one hand.
    You're funny. That's why he averages more than double the assists of Enes and Favors per 36, right?

    In his defense, the post you quoted never said anything about enes or favors being great passers so whats is your point?

    Big AL is a crappy passer but he is better than 2 guys under 20 years old who are more known for defense and rebounding who have never averaged more than 25 pts per game? Hooray!

    He's claiming that the Jazz offense flows better without Al. We are replacing Al with Favors/Kanter. Neither pass as much as he does.

    It gets stagnant when the wings give up and refuse to cut. Not because Al has the ball in the post. 2 assists per game for a C is pretty damn good. Boozer hit in at 3, which was top of the league when he was here. Malone was insane at 4, that is part of the reason he was a ONE OF A KIND player, so you can't expect Jefferson or anyone else ti hit that mark.

    But replacing al with favors/kanter means we throw the ball into the post less.... so while kanter/favors dont pass better than big al or get more assists than big al, the rest of the team passes the ball around more and get more touches, assists and shots when al is out.

    Because corbin believes in big al so much, he just pounds the ball to al all game long..... when kanter was in for big al, corbin doesn't have the same faith in kanter to dominate the paint offensively so the offensive becomes less post up dominant.

    There is no way a trade with that many moving parts would be approved by any of those GMs. Why would every one of these teams blow up 5 or 6 components?

    I don't think I've ever seen a trade with that many players in the NBA.

    From Utah's perspective, why would we trade our 2 best players for a hard to work with/bad character guy (these things matter for Utah's front office) in Cousins, two bad player Garcia/Walton, and 1 unproven rookie (thomas)? This would be very hard for the organization to spin. Also, why would Milwaukee give up 4 rotation players when the team is playing well? I can see why Cleveland does this trade. But I don't know why Sacramento, Utah, or Milwaukee do this trade.

    The Jazz need/should keep 1 Millsap or 1 Jefferson (personally, I'd rather keep Jefferson). They are not going to ship both of them off this season, they may unload 1 and then resign the other, but no way a trade like this goes down. And particularly not for what accounts to a bust (cousins), 2 bad players (luke walton) and a player Sacramento would be giving up on too soon.
