What's new

Woj: Don to the Cavs for Markkanen, Agbaji, Sexton, three unprotected 1sts, two swaps, and a partridge in a pear tree.

It's hard to believe Sexton is still only 23. The wins and losses won't matter so much this season. I'd throw him out there and see what he can do as a playmaker before boxing him in as purely a Jalen Brunson type that relies on a big playmaker and/or as a Clarkson archetype microwave scorer.

I'd throw THT out there and see if he has any playmaking chops too.

Get Ben Simmons.

Who and what would you give to get him? That would be interesting though.

This is actually interesting. Simmons has three years left on his deal and his value is at the absolute lowest it could be. The more years you take off that contract, the more his value goes up for a team that thinks they can rehab him on a short deal. I'd be curious about looking in to a Westbrook / Simmons swap. It could backfire if Simmons continues being Simmons, but if you suck down a year of that contract and he actually plays, you could certain get a return on him in a year when he's only got two years left on the deal and you can parlay that into more assets.

How much they ask for is meaningless. You think the Jazz are just going to give them more picks because the counterpart asks for them?
No. In which case, a deal isn’t made.

I’m simply saying teams are gonna demand more from the Jazz than other teams with less. We literally just watched the Jazz do this with the Knicks and Boston was on the wrong side of that around 2017.

So teams are going to dream impossible dreams that never come true. That has no impact on the Jazz whatsoever.

You'd only get him if he becomes toxic to the Nets and they mostly want a salary dump. Then you bet on Will Hardy as a "high EQ" coach to help Ben through a mental health rehab project. My comment was tongue in cheek but it does make you think.

There are more and more teams running their offenses through "nonprototypical point guards" (Jokic, LeBron, Luka) who can have both better "altitude vision" and extraordinary passing skills. (flashback Magic). Ironically, this could create a niche for a "small scoring guard who is not a great facilitator/ passer"

Of course you need to address the defensive side of the ball. Like 2021 utah, cleveland has two small guards, but unlike utah they have two excellent defenders to compensate.

I mean the jazz wanted 3 unprotected and a couple of decent players. All of the extraneous New York picks didn't matter. We were more interested in the Knicks because they historically suck not because they had an extra 3 or 4 garbage picks.

I think the idea is to put Sexton and Agbaji together and although it may not happemn right away, it will be the best backcourt

Maybe, but far from foregone conclusion. They would need a facilitator at the 3 or 4 for this to have a remote chance of working

Don't forget Bolmaro.
