    So hold on to your butts and don't make new trade threads with the dream you had the night before about who the jazz should trade for....
    The dream I had last night about making a trade is not something I can include in this forum. Let's just say it was completely one-sided on my part, but boy was SHE worth it!

    Let us say that a deal comes along for Millsap of Jefferson. It is not a bad deal but it is less then you would otherwise get if they were not FAs next year.

    Do you take it or let them go to free agency and get nothing in return?

    If the Jazz let Millsap or Jefferson walk, they are getting something in return...cap space and leverage. By retaining the rights for both, neither can hold the Jazz hostage in salary negotiations because there's a good chance the Jazz would say, ok Paul, we're just going to make the same offer to Al. If he signs before you get back to us, then you'll have to go elsewhere for fewer years and less overall guaranteed money.

    Or the Jazz could decide they want neither player back. In that case, why accept players with longer-term contracts that take up cap space and may restrict Utah from going after good FA's? Even if Marvin exercises his option, the Jazz should have some cash to go after a starter. One good starter is better than a couple of mid-level back-ups.

    The only trade I'd make is giving up Al or Paul + perhaps one of our picks to get a starter (or terrific 6th man). Jazz are lacking a "go-to" player, but have plenty of players who are decent backups.

    If the deal didnt involve marshon brooks i dont want it....even though i barely want anything the nets have as it is lol. keep in mind the magic wanted him once in the offseason. i expect him there or houston.
    If we wanted Marshon Brooks, we could have just drafted him over Burks. I'm not sold on Brooks.

    I was at Fanzz last night buying some presents for my kids and nephew and both the Millsap and Jefferson jerseys were slashed. I asked if that means they are trading Millsap and Jefferson. The clerk said "we're trying".
    Funny. They ought to sell those jerseys while they can.

    And the Jazz are not sold on Burks.
    Cy is a Baker, he doesn't work fast food. Don't make that mistake, he doesn't like it.

    Brooks is terrible (chucker) & won't get off the bench cause he can't play D.

    Paul/Raja for Humphries works but I don't see a need for him (2yr/24M) unless we can spin him to say CLE for 1 of their multiple 1st rounders in '13...
    i may quote myself from other treads... sue me!

    Millsap in Houston next to Asik makes a lot of sense. Most teams could use Millsap. I guess we could take a contract back from Orlando and some draft picks. They got a bunch in the Dwight trade.
    HOU is still under this cap THIS year so Paul for either Patterson/Morris/Jones/Aldrich/Montiejunas works.

    or we can also swap Mo/Lin in a bigger package, but Lin would only be effective if we ran more P&R.
