    Watching the Blazers/Rockets game. Listening to Reggie Miller, who is lightyears beyond more entertaining than Harpring, talk about how this is a track meet. And both teams are defensively challenged.

    I can agree with that.

    But how do we play that to our advantage??

    At the end of the season, assuming we draft someone to play 4/stretch 4, we trade them an offensive powerhouse(Kanter) and filler(JL3) for Wesley Matthews(even Deron bowed to his defensive prowess). Helps both teams in two ways

    Portland:
    1. When McCollum gets goin, they'll have a problem with minutes and shot diffusion. (read; end logjam)
    2. Lopez isn't that good. Kanter would be an upgrade(on O and [arguably] D)
    3. .. Lucas is a trade piece?

    Utah:
    1. Fewer huge contracts to give out(Kanter's gonna want a lot)
    2. Gets rid of Lucas, that awful joke of an NBA player
    3. Obtain very solid starting 2(Hayward to 3) that defends like his momma's diabetes supplies depended on it
    4. Minutes for Gobert.


    Trade seems to work.

    no.

    I'm invested in Kanter.

    Mathews is good, but we have Hayward, Burks and Rush at the 2. Rush might return to being the 3&D that he was. We also still don't know what we have with Clark.

    Kanter has touch, can probably extend his game to the 3 and be a stretch 4 when needed to be.

    Our team's need is a legit 3.

    Also the argument of "Kanter's going to want a lot of money" is premature. Let's see what happens this offseason (he is still in his 3rd year), and then see how he plays in his 4th year. If we end up trading him, it would be stupid to do it now when we have until the trade deadline (or 2015 off season) next year to see what he's actually worth. Kanter is a and always has been a potential prospect, and is still showing what his game may become.

    Last but not least, the Jazz are situated to be able to pay their players what they are worth. We're not in danger of losing any of our young guys just yet. Let things play out and the market dictate their worth, and then decide if we can't keep them all, what assets we want.

    We have this and next year with Kanter and Burks, The rest of the season with Hayward, and 4 years with Trey and Rudy before their big boy salaries kick in.

    Part of not skipping steps is not trading away your players before you know who they are, and when you don't have to. Financially we are solid for the foreseeable future.

    Wes is good. Kanter is good and young. You NEVER trade a big for a small. Kanter is worth a top 5 pick THIS year. Big guys who have coordination are actually pretty rare.

    Matthews is having a career year - more importantly his production relative to his contract is one of the best in The NBA (stings, doesn't it?). Why in the world would Portland trade him?

    I'm not sure he is. And if he is will he ever be given the chance to really, REALLY show it behind Hayward, Burks, Burke, favors, and the superstar we end up with in the draft? Especially with Corbins love of the stretch 4?

    Don't kid yourself. Corbin is with this team for 4 more years at least.

    Lets run with getting more...what more can we squeeze out of Portland? Or a third team?

    This though....i tried to ignore it, but i just can't. If he's that good, he would be forcing any coach to start him, Crayolacorbin included.

    I think Kanter will be an All-Star. I don't think Kanter fits in too well with Burke and Favors, BUT that could be Corbin's fault as well. I don't move Kanter this year. I wait until I see where my draft pick is. If it somewhere I'm not happy with (4-7) then I try to trade Kanter and my pick up for a top 3 pick. If it is where I want it (top 3), then I see what the new coach can do with Kanter. If Kanter is still a defensive liability, then I move him next trade deadline. If not, I pat myself on the back for drafting an awesome player, sticking with him, and bringing in the correct coach.

    Remember that this is after the draft this year, not before.
