Even with us trading Lyles for Mitchell I'm still bitter about taking Lyles over Booker. Everyone wanted to draft Booker except the damn jazz front office. I really believe drafting Booker changes the entire trajectory of our franchise because I don't think Hayward leaves if Booker is around. The Booker, Hayward, Gobert trio had legit championship potential. The summer that Hayward left you looked at that team and it was okay but there wasn't much upside which is why he bounced. Obviously if we already had Mitchell established as well then I doubt he leaves then either. Too bad we weren't proactive in giving him a 4 year deal with no player option to begin with.

Jazz let Lauri yesterday go to Arizona for the alumni day there, as there is nothing spesific Jazz needs from Markkanen at the moment, and he is just expected to be with the team in Toronto tomorrow. Kinda weird timing, if you ask me, what with the team seemingly working their butts off in front of their new coach.

Also, the last Jazz tweet mentioning Lauri is from September 27th (when he met JV and most of the team for the first time). All other 18 Jazz team members seem to have been mentioned in Jazz tweets since then.

I have a hunch Lauri Markkanen will be included in a trade on November 8th (the earliest date he can be traded unless exactly one for one, which certainly isn't what Jazz is looking for), and Jazz is atm trying to avoid building any kind of hype around him.

Why would Jazz want to trade Markkanen?
Jazz finally have a 7 ft stretch 4 who can also play C or SF at times
I don't know, I have absolutely no clue why. But I find it odd Jazz seemingly has no interest in him being with the team now when chemistry is built up and the coach is deciding who plays what role in the team.
