    Get Conley... put Dante in the deal... sign Niko or Rudy Gay to be the stretch 4... win titles!

    We can make a free agent addition and get Conley... just gotta ship out Dante.

    Conley would be amazing with Donovan and in general, IMO.

    Conley and Jabari or Love and Beverley. Those are the two deals.

    The differences are we can trade for someone whether they want to come to the Jazz or not, whereas FAs aren’t that interested in coming.

    It sounds like it may be the other way around. If the Jazz pursue Russell or Harris it may be because they determine that they can't get Conley.

    I was hoping for something a little less simple, but thanks for paying attention to me.

    Yes. At this point teams are getting some idea of who is a realistic target.

    The difference is that if we make a trade, we have the MLE. If we go the FA route, all you have is the room exception. So that’s your team.

    Conley would be good , contract and age is a concern .

    I really like Dragic , I like his mentality , I think he would be a great fit here , just opted in ...

    Jazz were after him before trade deadline

    I think it's probably more that the Jazz have more certainty getting Conley. Waiting on Russell/Harris is too uncertain.

    Could be (esp. if you're factoring the decision on Favors into it), though I'm not sure there's any more certainty in getting a trade done. It may be more about the timing.

    If the timing made no difference, who do you think the Jazz prioritize? I'd probably go Conley, Harris, Russell, with Conley over Harris primarily because I think it may be easier to get adequate players to fill in around the rest of the team at PF/C than at PG.

    I opened a box of basketball cards today. I announced that the first hit I pulled would be a card of the player the Jazz will acquire this summer. I pulled... are ya ready?... @LoPo cover your eyes and ears... a patch/auto Mike Conley. Can't be coincidence can it? Tis the will of the basketball gods. They have spoken.

    Do another one for the secondary player we’ll acquire.

    So what would it take to re-acquire Jazz Legend Derrick Rose?

    New owners and front office. Jazz want nothing to do with him.

    @infection tell you what. **** Love. But if DL can trade for Conley and Love this off season and not involve the primary players (Mitchell, Gobert, Ingles) I’m in. Other than that, STOP.

    Valanciunas declined his team option today. Maybe Favors has slightly more value to Memphis?
