It depends on the pieces going back but I would prefer getting the 28 pick and evening out our pick allocation a bit. It also makes the 27 swap so much more valuable... because we could swap it with 1 of 3 picks.

I'm also comfortable just going back to Phoenix and getting a 24 pick from them for Bogey and selling off the other pieces if LA is digging in. They have so much more riding on this than us.
If they can get a '24 unprotected from Phoenix they need to bite on that. Piecing out the rest from that point would be messier but fine.

We can include Azubuike/Bolmaro in the deal and make it a 3 for 2. Then all we’d have to do is send Johnson into a TPE for a 2nd.

From Tony Jones in a newly published Athletic piece, aggregated to RealGM:
After trading Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell, the Utah Jazz are exploring the trade market for the remaining veterans on their roster. Utah has talked trades with rival teams involving Bojan Bogdanovic, Mike Conley, Jordan Clarkson, Rudy Gay and Malik Beasley.

In particular, the Jazz have held ongoing talks with the Los Angeles Lakers surrounding Bojan Bogdanovic. The veteran forward averaged 18.1 points on 45/39/86 shooting splits a season ago.

Utah and Los Angeles have already linked up for one deal this offseason. The Lakers sent Talen Horton-Tucker and Stanley Johnson to the Jazz in exchange for Patrick Beverley. Landing Bogdanovic would go a long way towards adding depth to the Lakers rotation.

The challenge is Los Angeles may find it difficult to match salary in a trade for Bogdanovic. In part, that may be why Utah isn't close to trading Bogdanovic at this time.
Hmm. I wonder where the Lakers could find matching salary... hmmm.....

Not too messy. There are plenty of TPEs coming due and the Jazz have some players in that range that could be valuable. Don't think it'd hard to trade them w/o taking a player back.

who are the Lakers going to get when Lebron retires? That organization is just stupid to hold onto 27 and 29 picks lol. They need to get rid of that crap for Bogey, Clarkson, and Conley..... like yesterday

If I were the Lakers I'd be asking for Bojan, Beasley, and Clarkson.
+1. That's make them a contender immediatly. Waiting another year or two when you have old player ( LE Bron) and old and injured prone one ( AD) + westbrick is insane for me....
