    I can't believe Billy is down on Hayward. The guy has a lot of skills. The shot is getting deadly, he can create, he can pass, he can drive, and is good finishing on the break. The guy is amazing at video games. I'm sure he's even great in bed at this point. What's not to love?
    I'm not down on Hayward. But my opinion is both Burks and Bledsoe will be better players than he is if they're not already. It's that simple.

    FYI no one decides to stand pat the day before the deadline that is called POSTURING
    Agreed. The idea that minor concerns over throw ins could derail this is unlikely. I still like our chances.

    Hayward's a good glue guy. His touches would go down, but he's a good piece to have.

    Millsap is one of the best finishers in the league. He's really good at filling the lane. Him running out with Griffin has got to be tempting. Plus, Millsap's floor game is dramatically better than Lamar Odom's right now.

    Are luxury tax issues an impediment to the Jazz and Clippers making a trade? If so it says something about the deal

    Grantland's Zack Lowe, who does great work, has tweeted out that luxury tax issues are causing the Clippers and Jazz to have a tough time making a deal - likely the rumored deal with Millsap and Bledsoe.

    The Clippers are only 440,000 below the tax and the Jazz are 3.5 million below the tax threshold.

    However, if the deal were simply Millsap for Bledsoe and Butler or Bledsoe and Burks there would be no tax implications. Because the Jazz either 1.3 or 1.1 million more in either deal. Therefore, this would be a non issue.

    However, if the Clippers are insisting that the Jazz include Alec Burks in the deal then the Clippers would be taking back 1 million more than the Jazz and would push the Clippers over the tax threshold.

    If the Clippers add another player in the deal such as Ryan Hollins then the money gets straightened out but the Jazz would have to cut Raja Bell because it would put 16 players on the roster. Moreover, Ryan Hollins has been playing 15 minutes a night recently and the Clippers may not want to move him.

    This leaves the possibility of the Jazz putting a 1st round pick into the deal instead of Burks and I need to investigate how that impact luxury tax
    Read this post from Locke as well. I sometimes wonder about the intelligence or lack there of from GMs around the NBA. We have no way of knowing if the Jazz and Clippers have mutual interest in swapping Millsap for Bledsoe, but if they do, it's not that difficult. Bledsoe + Butler OR Odom for Millsap + Tinsley + GSW pick works financially, keeps the Clippers out of the luxury tax, allows the Jazz to keep Burks, and keeps Greg Miller from having to buyout Raja Bell. It really isn't that difficult. There are tons of scenarios that are viable for both teams if they really want to make it work.

    If that's really the issue, they could solve it by getting a 3rd team involved, or swapping scrubs.

    Like previously said, it makes you think it's probably posturing. If the Clips decide to pull the trigger, I'm sure it will get done.

    Curious. But not really helpful, all considered.
