Short of the Knicks straight up bailing us out of Conley’s last year, it would require significant sacrifice (some combination of essentially extending Conley at a sufficiently reduced number for next year, losing Clarkson, using picks to jettison TB/Ed), would require the Jazz to field an offer competitive to Detroit’s (and they have a huge cap advantage), and he’d have to want to come here. But if he cares about winning and the Jazz can field a competitive financial offer then I think the Jazz would have the edge.
It’s a lot of moving parts and if I was the Jazz I would throw the kitchen sink at it. Athletic, switchable 4/5s that can protect the rim and hit 3s are uncommon, even those that aren’t as productive/efficient (23 PER, .66 TS%, great WS rate and on/off splits) as Wood has been for two years now. And we could use some Rudy insurance to boot.
It’s worth the sacrifice and the dice-roll.
Philly could also bail us out. We either take Horford or find a third team. This seems like the mostly likely Conley trade to me.
