    I think Portland could be interested. They could play Favs at B/U C behind Nurkic and that would give them solid C minutes all game long. If the Jazz took back long term salary then I'm sure they would get a late first back.

    Would anyone stealth tank and trade Rubio to Denver for their 2017 1st and Faried? Rubio doesn't play winning ball and that could end up being a lottery pick.

    Then, also try to trade Favors, Hood and Burks. We may be able to get a late 1st for Faves from someone looking to make a run. In the off-season, sign a steady backup point in case Exum struggles. Otherwise, give him the ****ing keys.

    Exum--steady vet
    Mitchell
    Ingles-Sefalosha-Our 1st-Denver 1st
    Our 1st/Denver 1st-Jerebko-Faried
    Gobert-Udoh-Bradley

    Further into the season, at say 18-20, they'll realize they can't just get by on what they have, and pull the trigger.

    I think they wanted to dump faried in the deal instead of expirings.

    Someone mentioned they would do a first and faired.

    I'd try to move AB with favors... I don't think we are getting a first for him

    I think we are stuck with Ricky... he's just not a great fit.

    Donovan is and will always be our #1 option, for the next 15 years.

    I think there might be more of a market for Rubio than for Favors. Denver doesn't seem like a bad fit as already mentioned, but there's also the Pacers. Maybe the Bulls? Maybe the Pistons with Bullock (ehh)?

    If we are trading with Denver I want....what am I saying? Denver fans would skin the GM if he trades with Utah again. Gobert and Mitchell is a hard memory.

    They are 3rd in the West and Jamal Murray just scored 32 points in their last game...

    More or less. They aren't a team who wants a traditional point, from what I can tell.

    Agree.

    Injury to Gobert may be the best thing to happen to Jazz this season.

    1. They were going to lose a lot come December (brutal schedule). Shouldn't affect the outcomes much - only the point spreads.
    2. Well under .500 at year-end means trades are more likely and DL won't have to worry about appeasing fans who want to see Jazz try to get the 8th seed.
    3. Favors will have ample opportunity to make the most of his contract year - and increase his trade value.
    4. Floor spacing may be better with a 5 who is a threat offensively.
    -a. Better looks for Hood (who also increases his trade value)
    -b. More natural offense for Rubio
    5. Increased playing time for Sefolosha, who might play himself into being a trading chip.
    6. Better chance for Jazz to be in the top-10 of the lottery.

    In a way this is a huge blessing in disguise.
    This is the best chance Favors has to show everyone that he is a legit two-way number 5.

    This could get really interesting....

    I wish Favors was better than Gobert.

    My dark side kinda thinks he is ...
