    Over the holiday, I was at a Jazz game (Clips) and looked around the Fanz store at the ESA. I noticed that all Jefferson merchandise was 50% off, all Millsap merchandise was 25% off, and every other player was regular price regardless of popularity and playing time. Don't they have the same ownership as the team? Maybe that is the hint that Jefferson is the first option that they are trying to trade and Millsap is the second. We keep hearing from the media that they are likely to trade one of them, but maybe this is a hint and what the ownership thinks. Once a player is traded their merchandise is much harder to sell.

    Yes, same ownership. Also, this has been brought up before.

    I must have missed that, sorry. It still makes me wonder though.

    Lol, I was at the same game and noticed the same thing in the store. Same is true of the Fanzz store at the gateway mall.

    Okay Jefferson Jersey one liners:

    Jefferson's jersey's are moving slow

    Even the discounted price didn't create any jump in sales.

    Customers were confused because the price was posted so far from the product

    Jefferson's jerseys were underperforming Kanter and Favors, but a call from Ty kept Jefferson's in the store.

    If the Jazz don't sale Jefferson jerseys, what Jerseys are going to sale in the 4th quarter?

    Shirley we beat this one to death.

    We ought to put it to bed.

    Does anyone know why here in northern California there are Fanzz stores? Seems kinda odd the Millers put them here.

    Why is that odd? It's not all about Utah sports it's about making money. If you're saying it's odd they want to expand their business to make more money then okay.

    Why not? They've got stores all over the place. I'm sure they just feature whatever teams sell well in every market they are in. It's not a Utah Jazz exclusive store or anything.

    There's a thread like this every year and no trades ever happen. I hope this year is different, but just sayin'.

    My brother worked at the Fanzz office at one time. Said that Fanzz knew about the Deron trade hours before it happened and when the Devin Harris trade happened, his jersey was put on discount and they knew about it beforehand as well.
    There is some credence to this rumor is what he thinks.

    Hey a word of caution to you all. I bought me one of those Milsap jerseys, it was priced really good, but when I got home and put it on it was a little bit too small. I'm going to have to leave it on the hanger and wear my Favors jersey. I guess if the Favors jersey ever gets spilled on or needs to be washed I can have the Milsap Jersey as a back-up.

    all it means is that fans have stopped buying jefferson jerseys as much so now they're sitting on extra inventory they need to burn. they probably never had that many jeremy evans jerseys to begin with, so they don't have to do crazy markdowns to get rid of them.

    i guarantee you that the guys in the fanzz sales department have no idea what is on the horizon for trades.

    I see your point, but I think your comment of "crazy markdowns" is a bit of an exaggeration.

    I heard the Fanzz store had Al Jefferson capes on sale. You can buy one and yell ole like Al does when he plays defense.
