    Jazz trade "Rudy the great" for AD a (2 year rental) Huge I mean Huge risk! he might end up hating all of us and taking on the whole miller family

    Jazz package trade of favs and others to get Conely.

    do these trades move the needle? I think they do. does a winning season for AD make him stay?

    Pels do it to have a Defensive minded guy to hide zions lack of D + gobert is a leader something pels have needed for way too long

    Grizz want to move on from the gasol, conely, randolf era ( clean slate) we give them what they need to do that. expiring contracts...

    Copy of trade... its ugly, but effective.

    I think it would move the needle. But then AD leaves for LA and the Jazz traded Gobert for a 1 year rental and our core is now Mitchell and a 32 year old Conley.

    It’s way to risky imo. If the Jazz were able to land FAs like LA or Boston I might be more inclined.

    Moves the needle, but way too risky. Personally, I don't trade a top 20 player under contract for a few more years for a one year rental on a top 10 that hasn't played a full season. If that injury comes on the tail of the season or playoffs, we're boned.

    I did a little more research, we would get davis for 2 years. that makes it a little less risky. I also think pels seriously consider the offer.

    the conely offer you have to go into it like you are the buyer and that the grizz have something they really want to get rid of.

    idk, its a long lonely, sad off season. I really hope Jazz FO do SOMETHING this year.

    20/21 is a PO for him. It'd very likely be a one year rental.

    if Davis is younger than Gob', that trade could be a win win win win., (assuming Daivs doen't set out, but if he does , screw him, sue him, and tank.) The Conley trade is irrelevant.

    What has AD ever done to think he moves the needle.

    AD is a snivelling ***** who crawls into a ball when the going gets tough Quit on his teammates with 2 years of a contract remaining. He's a no heart quitter who isn't anywhere near worth the trouble

    There is no way Utah trades Gobert away. Simply erase it from your minds.
    He makes his teammates better offensively and defensively and is as loyal/competitive/consistent as it gets. Thanks to him Utah is a perennial playoff team even when they have 6th most cap space.

    If we could swing favors and filler for AD, then to it. Otherwise, nah.

    I lost a ton of respect for AD through all this. We get it, you want out. Ok that's fine. Do like any other employed person does and give your notice and do your job until you leave. But ****ing laying down on it all, saying essentially **** you to the other players, the organization, and the fans is such a bitch move it is nearly unforgivable. I would absolutely still take him on the team due to his sheer talent but I'll never be fan the same as I was before. Your true colors shine when things get tough, and his true color is baby-**** yellow.

    Gobert is a better player. No way in hell I do this trade, even if I thought Davis would stay for his career.

    If right trade comes along Utah should trade Rudy and would be stupid not too. Gobert is great but not a superstar leading you to a championship. If a superstar becomes available you take a risk and trade him ( see what Toronto did). Although Davis is not at Kawhi level in my opinion.

    I saw JIngles tweet about wishing Brock Motum good luck in the Euro League Final 4. There are some players participating in that tourney that have passed through SLC. Tibor Pleiss is on Brock's team with Shane Larkin as the PG, Bolomboy is playing for CSKA Moscow with Jeff Withey and Nate Wolters in the tourney. The point of this is the Jazz can let Favors, Bricky and virtually everyone else walk if they get the third star piece whoever that may be. There is enough talent walking the planet to make the Jazz uber competitive with three stars. Need point guards they are there. Need bigs they are there. Need wings they are there.

    We would need Conley, Mitchell, Ingles, AD, and Favors to be our starting lineup to have any chance at winning a championship. But would even that be enough to beat a Warriors team that keeps everyone? Unlikely.
