Trade Rumors Involving the Jazz


New Orleans makes a lot of sense as a Beasley landing spot.

We can take back Devonte Graham plus salary filler. Graham’s salary isn’t as bad as I thought. It is 11.5M this year, 12.1M next year and only 2.85M guaranteed in 2024-25.

They have their own first in 2024 and the option to take the Lakers first in 2024 or 2025.

I would be targeting picks in 2024 since it is likely we may not have one since OKC owns our pick and it is only top-10 protected.

Final deal would be something like:

Beasley for Graham, Marshall and the 2024/2025 Lakers first

I really like Marshall... I'm fine with Graham but he makes more sense if we moved Mike too. They won't give the Lakers pick. I could see them giving up the worse of their pick or the Lakers pick in 2024 or 2025... the wording would be tricky. Maybe they'd do the Bucks pick they own.
 
That trade is really rough.
maybe, but the idea that they can get more for Vander and NAW seems unrealistic. I think something like this could work for Ainge, even though its pretty much just rolling the dice on 1 good guard that is very similar to Young Bull and taking a flier on a couple unprovens that are buried on a contenders roster. I like the odds Nnaji is a rotation big here day one. The 3rd man is just a overpicked G league project, but has some interesting potential defensively but is nowhere near as far along as Vander despite being of the same mold.
 
I like the idea. It fits our timeline better as you said. However it also largely depends on our draft position and who we get.
I would definitely gamble on Bones being better than 99% of the prospects in the 26-30 range of this draft in 5 years.
If the deal was done without protection on the pick I might be a little less interested.
Overall its just a meh nothing shocking trade, but the kind of value swap that could happen is all

Man if those two pelican overtime games had flipped the standings look so much different for our picks right now.

They would never give up that Lakers pick for this, would they? That could very easily be pure gold.

They are going to be in a salary cap crunch very shortly. I don’t think they would but I would take their first as well instead.

I haven't really watched Marshall much, but his stats look fairly good. Graham is a negative asset, and their pick will very likely be really late. I guess I'd consider it, but not sure. Would definitely do it for the Lakers pick.
 
I wouldn't be all that crestfallen if no trade actually happens. Trader Dan has acquired enough loot to make the Jazz big players in tradeapalooza on draft day. But maybe he finds some panicked sucker and does a Gobert like heist on Feb 9th.
 
DraftKings has Conley at +130 to be traded and Clarkson at +160 to be traded. Those both seem like WAY higher odds than I would guess.
