Trade Rumors Involving the Jazz

I think even if we had kept Don and Rudy we would have struggled in the first two months mightily due to the schedule. Other than some weeks of development, there isn't much downside waiting on the offer we want. I think there are offers on the table right now for Bogey. We likely take one before camp.

The hardest thing is the balance between rehabbing value and stealing minutes from developing players.

Off the bench for 23+ minutes is ok but starting him would just be dumb imo.
I disagree, I would start Conley, but limit his minutes/games until the trade deadline. I think the priority for the first half of the season is asset accumulation. It's kind of weird, but the starter designation is somehow really important in the league. A starter will have a higher value than a bench player. I think some of our young guards minutes (mainly Butler) might suffer, but having Conley around should be beneficial for our young players in general.

The only tradeoff I would consider is if Conley is making too much of a positive impact. If our own draft pick is at risk at risk of losing value for the sake of Conley gaining value, then you have to probably sit him more.

If LAL would give us the two picks, I’d do Conley for Vuc straight up. Having that extra cap space next offseason by getting off Conley’s guarantee would be worth it, and if it gets us the extra pick from the Lakers, it’s a no brainer.

Really not a fan of the "all in Tank". Once you get too used to losing, you tend to still be good at it. We are the Jazz, if we have the worst record in the league will still be pulling 4/5 as that would hurt the most...well not as bad as getting #1 pick, grabbing the tall french guy (can't spell his name so won't take the time to look it up and copy/paste) and then he continues his injury issues and is a waste. Getting other folk's assets (which we've been doing) and using them for trade or move up in draft will be more successful than only winning 15 games next year.

Anyway, I'll let you all get back to your dreams of sucking...enjoy

We need more posts like this to balance out the enthusiasm around here!

Nay, they'll wait until he is a free agent.
Obviously anything can happen but I wouldn't be shocked if they traded for Don in 2+ years especially if some big market teams are forecasted to have capspace. By 2025 teams like Lakers, Clips, Heat could have money available for FA's. Despite all the NY talk, for whatever reason I could see Don ultimately end up in LA or Miami at the end of his contract. Just a hunch though. Seems like alot of these players use NY for leverage and then end up somewhere else.
