Obvious Moves the Jazz Should Make this Offseason

If it were me, I'd trade Gobert while some teams in the league still value old-school bigs. I'd unload Conley, Bogdanovic and Gay to the highest bidders.

I'd give Quin the one year remaining on his contract to show how he can coach a retooled roster, and I'd give Donovan another year to improve and commit to the direction of the program. At the end of the year, I'd re-evaluate Quin and Donovan's situation.

All the people in the replace Rudy Gobert camp need to come to grips with the fact that the only reason we were even in the playoffs this year was Rudy Gobert. He represents the floor of this team, and in some ways the ceiling. Without what Rudy provides, as presently constituted, this team would be late lottery at best. Any proposed trades need to take into account the fact that 1) NO ONE ELSE plays any semblance of defense on this team and 2) NO ONE ELSE rebounds for **** on this team. These 2 things need to be replaced at a minimum to even begin to start starting about beginning to think about replacing Rudy.

I wouldn’t really call it a trade Rudy camp nor like a what’s next for the jazz camp. I side with Rudy over Don but the Jazz clearly do not and thus mine and most of Jazz nations opinion do not matter. If there is an all star traded out this offseason 5-1 says it’s Rudy.

It won't be easy for sure. Any Rudy trade idea needs to address these 2 important questions.

Can we replace Rudy and:

#1 Be as good in the 2022-23 OR 2023-24 regular season as we were in 2021-22 (in other words be a non-playin playoff team)?

#2 Be built better for the playoffs by having stronger depth, youthful athleticism and positional flexibility?

If a trade answers these questions with a yes, and I believe we can find that trade, then we should do it.

I honestly think no matter what the trade is we are going to take a step back if we trade Gobert. I think we can retool around Mitchell and be back to a competitive playoff team in a couple years if Mitchell decides to stick around. I just don’t think he wants to be here.

Which to me is why you just blow this **** up and do it now. Rudy being our best player has a ceiling. More teams are able to gameplan against him now... he gets really spendy going forward... its just time.

Building around a player with flaws like Donovan has is going to have a ceiling too... and a much lower potential floor. But I'd say do it anyway if I thought we had a 3-5 year runway. Currently we have maybe 1-1.5 years and with the amount of change that needs to happen its destined to fail about as badly as the new re-brand has. Donovan, Royce, JC will all be at Ross in 12 months when we could have gotten a department store price for them (maybe semi-annual discount but still better than Ross).

I don’t mind your Gobert trade scenario listed below even if it does give a -17 projection, but then I’m higher on Dok’s potential than anybody on this board. But Bogey is untouchable in my book (you’ll see) and Conley is not worth trading for pennies on the dollar. Yeah Gay probably has to go.
