Trade Rumors Involving the Jazz

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.


I think you are reading way too much into this.

Lauri just played in the Euro qualifiers all summer. Jazz still have two weeks before the season starts. They can give him a day off.
Maybe so. That however does defy the accepted logic of building up group chemistry and team bonding of a bunch of new guys. Somebody being away during that initial bonding phase isn't exactly helping (I don't know if any of you guys have joined a team or group a bit later than the others, but it ain't easy to mix in when the others seemingly have their inside jokes etc (I have personal experience of this both joining a team nine days after the others, and joining an amateur theater group eight days after the others -> I eventually left both of those, as I felt like an outsider all the time)). I just don't feel cool that Lauri went away from the team for a couple days, and apparently isn't even on the same plane to Edomonton as the others.

Apparently Jason Terry (current Jazz assistant coach and fellow U. of Ariz. graduate) was also attending the Univ. of Arizona event with Markkanen. It's not like they were missing all of the early part of training camp. They probably just missed one practice and will be at the game tomorrow.

Hopefully they saved Lauri one of those Doritos snack packs. That will go a long way towards team building.

Meh. Anything is possible but now that he's in Utah this is the first time he's played close to Arizona. What's the big deal in missing a travel day to go back and get little love from his alma mater. He's not going to miss the preseason game.

FWIW I believe Conley mentioned Lauri as one of the guys that was rebounding and bringing the ball up in practice this week.

If the rumor is true that Bolmaro improved his shot then that changes the bench depth and the team could get more wins. I love this lineup as a second unit. Three defenders and lots of offense.

Bolmaro
Clarkson
Agjabi
Markannen
Vanderbilt

Only Conley, Kelly O, and Bolmaro (he has sucked at shooting in past so he has developed passing) have an aptitude to passing on the team so I would try to maximize their minutes.

And yes, I would make Bolmaro the third PG on this team behind Conley and Sexton. (if the Jazz is going develop a player then do it for Bolmaro at the backup point; it may lead to more losses or we can get a wonderful surprise - I think he could be a Lonzo like PG.). I would cut Butler and Lee and Gay. And I would load up Star players who can play point in case Bolmaro flops.

The starting lineup would be:
Conley
Sexton
Beasley
Kelly O
Kessler

Are you some kind of drama queen? You quit twice because you were late to something? These are men making Millions. I think he’ll be fine, idiot Markkanen’s no quitter
