Favors to OKC in works (Update: Traded)

Tristian Thompson + 2 future 2nd round picks just traded to Atlanta for Kris Dunn who was looking for a backup C while Okongwu recovers from shoulder surgery.

Favors is the same age, a better defender, on the same contract, and is actually from Atlanta. We could've done him a solid by sending him home to a good team while giving up less draft capital and acquiring a solid veteran PG in Dunn. The move would've also saved us $4M and filled a major need as Dunn is one of the best defensive PG in the NBA.

Another move that highlights the incompetence of our front office.
Tristan only has one year on his deal and is less broken than Favs. Kris still makes 5M this year and not sure he's healthy. On the surface it looks bad for us... its not as bad as you think though.

Yep, Mason Plumlee averaged 10+9 on 8mil last year then got tossed to Charlotte along with #37 pick for pick #57.

Favors averaged 5+5 on 9mil... It tells you the state of market for backup centers nowadays. Anything beyond a vet min is basically an overpay.

Yet DL invested like 5 draft picks with 2 of those being first rounders + well over 40mil in cash and salary just for that position.

Damnit... Kangs traded Wright to get Thompson in the Atlanta Boston trade. They completed my fake trade where I sent Favs to Kangs for Wright... damn.

I think some of us get tired of the incessant negativity at times here.

Sure, he rebuilt the Jazz and helped lead us to the team's best record in more than two decades. But none of that matters, apparently, since he's an "abject failure" for striking out several times (as if striking out isn't part of the nature of the business).
Ya defensive player of the year, 3 all stars, 6 man of the year, best record in the league, and a historically great shooting team in the history of the nba. Abject failure lol.
Perfect? no. We didn't win the championship. But the roster we had last year also didn't exactly suck.
iirc (and i could be wrong) but DL was the runner up for GM of the year as well.

I probably should’ve worded it better. Of course he’s not an “abject failure” by putting together an incredibly successful roster for pretty much the entire time he was here.

I would consider his asset management philosophy and setting the stage to lose Hayward (without adequately replacing him) to be failures. Jingles, Bogie and Royce are all solid wings, but none is dynamic enough to be that 3rd star. The Jazz have needed a dynamic wing for years, and DL failed to really go after one - even though it’s been the team’s top need for years.
Now thats a good post. I take back my previous posts after reading this.

2024 first round draft pick to Oklahoma City Utah's 1st round pick to Oklahoma City protected for selections 1-10 in 2024 (conveyable if Utah conveys a 1st round pick to Memphis in 2022), 1-10 in 2025 (conveyable if Utah has conveyed a 1st round pick to Memphis by 2023) and 1-8 in 2026; if Utah has not conveyed a 1st round pick to Oklahoma City by 2026, then Utah will instead convey its 2028 2nd round pick to Oklahoma City [Oklahoma City-Utah, 7/30/2021]

Full details on that 2024 pick.

At least we are in control of our own destiny with those protections in case DM does demand a trade and we go into a full rebuild by 2024.
