What could we trade Bogie for ?

He needs to be sat until he's recovered. He didn't just forget how to be good at basketball all of a sudden, so there is no way that the wrist isn't a lingering issue.

If that issue prevents him from being effective at his strengths to the point that is creates problems for the Jazz, then use this as an opportunity to develop the depth. I personally think Morgan has earned the chance to see the floor.
 
This thread is such a LOL. Utah has one of the best, if not THE BEST team in the world right now. Bogdanović started out the season slow (as expected) then had a run of couple of weeks where he played great and now has had couple of bad games. Which Utah won. People who honestly think he should be traded for Gordon or anybody, honestly, dont know **** about basketball. And you dont deserve the team you have right now. By the same logic, next time Bogdanović hits 7 or 8 threes in a game (which will happen for sure, since there are so many games in the NBA) he should get a max contract? That makes no sense at all right?
Lets say you trade him for Lavine. What kind of a player Lavine is? Similar to Mitchell, right? Young, athletic talented guy that can score. That sounds great. But problem is that both Mitchell and Lavine are volume scorers that need to take 20-30 shots each game to get to their stats. So instead of a great team basketball thats all about passing and making the right play, you get two shot chuckers. So you would have KD and RW during OKC time, two guys switching playing 1 on 5.
Bogdanović is a smarter player, when he has it going he can give you 25-30 easily, but when his shot isnt falling, he is not gonna force it just to get to his numbers. Hes already proven himself as a valuable player in the best legaue in the world. He has been a starter for IND (which was a playoff team) for 2 years and has earned a massive contract and a position as a starter for one of the best teams in the league, UTA. He has nothing left to prove on a personal level, he doesnt care about his own stats and percentages (he has been snubbed 3 years in a row for a 3 point contest), all he cares about is his team winning .
Guys like Mitchell and Lavine are still too young, they dont think like that. They have the whole world ahead of them, they are thinking about becoming allstars, superstars, their own numbers and their own game. But in the end, none of that **** matters, its all about who wins it at the end
Bogdanović deserves one or two playoff runs with this team, people underestimate him and seriously have no idea how good he is in important games. During his first season in IND they matched up against Lebron and Cavs in the first round of playoffs. So that IND team, with Oladipo (who was allstar once or twice) and Bogdanović (who was never an allstar) as their two first offensive weapons pushed that Cavs team to 7 games with Bojan being a primary defender on Lebron(seriously, watch those games and defense they play on Lebron). That same Cavs team destroyed TOR in the second round in 4 games (and this is a team with Lowry and Derozan, both multiple Allstars) and made it to the finals in the end.
So yeah, you might wanna give this Jazz team one or two playoff runs when everybody is healthy before you decide to trade everybody away, you might just get a championship out of it

I'll agree with babobombarder you don't want to upset the chemistry. Quin tries to turn him into a playmaker like Ingles too much, just not a strength of his.

I expect Bogie will be fine long term but we pulled away tonight when he came off the floor. Lots of TOVs with him on the floor. Lack of rebounding. Poor paint defense. And missed open shots made him look like 2019Niang.

Bogie will need to play well for us to compete for a championship so give him rest. I have no doubt he is on the team the rest of the season but we can and should expect more from him.

Y'all forget Bogey and Clarkson barely played together last year and Mike wasn't very good individually last year. He's basically taken a back seat as a 4th option. He's going to have hot and cold games. His place on the team is a mismatch option who can shoot lights out. He isn't always going to have a great matchup based on what type of D the team plays.

Bogie is just another of a long list of Jazz players who are throw under the bus when they have a few bad games. Bogie will be fine and he is very important for the Jazz during the playoffs.
He hasn't had a few bad games though. Contextualize why all you want, but it's been a problem. Thankfully, every other member of the team has played better.

This. And really, thankfully the team has played as a TEAM, which covers up a lot of individual flaws and failings. Hell the team has bailed out Mitchell on more than a few highly inefficient outings. Our play as a team is what makes us so so dangerous.

FEAR THE HYDRA!!
