the thing with trade ideas is that you have to consider why the other team wants to do the trade. i don't think you did that hereBeen reading a lot of these trade rumors that are posted up by these barf sites. I entertain myself with them even though I find most of them to be one sided and comical. They do however often use the players that are on the trade market.
I’ve also been reading a lot in the last couple of days that makes it seem to me the jazz may want to bring back both of their stars next year.
I’ve seen trades in the rumor mill involving NO and the jazz sending us graham, Nance, and a pick for Mike. Also saw another with Mike and a 1st to Indy for Brogdon. Then I thought about the deadline and the potential Igor and a 1st to Detroit who is rebuilding and wants picks for Grant.
My idea takes these ideas with a couple tweaks.
Utah Out: Clarkson
Utah In: Graham (necessary to get pick)/1st rnd
Utah Out: Conley/UT ‘26 1st
Utah In: Brogdon
Utah Out: Hernangomez/NAW (Package Joe)/Royce/NO 1st
Utah In: Grant
This gives New Orleans an upgrade for a 1st rnd pick, it gives Indy a 1st rnd pick and a shorter contract, it gives Detroit a young player, an expiring contract and a 1st rnd pick.
This gives the jazz the size at point guard that they have needed and the elusive defensive wing we sorely have needed.
