Remind me if I'm wrong, but I don't think the Jazz even worked Derrick Williams out for the 3rd pick in the 2011 draft. I'm pretty sure they don't like him. He's doesn't really fit with the Jazz system.

A potential draft pick will never workout for a team who a selection lower than his projection. Williams was projected #2, so his camp advised him to only work out for teams with the #1 and #2 pick. Standard procedure.

Yea this would put me over the edge. I think getting rid of Burks at this point would be dumb. I have actually liked how he has played recently. The kid is still only 20 years old.

Al Jefferson for a bag of peanuts. Even an empty bag.

Take this for what it's worth - Right before the lottery when the jazz had not yet gotten the third pick i heard the following (third hand) - that the jazz loved Williams and were going to do whatever they could to get him. Obviously it did not work, but the jazz did really want him at one point. This was said by Randy Rigby to one of the big time corporate big cats who has been seen at away games with jazz higher ups and is good friends with Rigby. This guy then relayed it to my best friend.

I would love to trade for Jason Thompson. He would be the perfect fit for Utah. He's under contract for the next 4 years after this year. He could start at pf till Kanter is ready to take over the starter role at C, then becomes the 3rd big off the bench. Where as Millsap would not want to come off the bench. Dude is 6-11 can defend, score a little in the paint and score from 18 feet out.
With the Kings in a life time rebuild, I wonder if we could get him for Marvin? This would open up minutes for Robinson. They spent a high draft pick to get him, and may feel pressure to play him more. Could you guys see this happening for just Marvin.
Another option would be trade Al for him, but then we'd have to take back someone like Salmons who has three years over 8million a year. In this senario let's hope the Kings are fed up with Cousins, if not they probably would have no interest in Al.
