    If you go over the cap then you don’t have the MLE but the room exception, which is like $3.9, which can get you Caruso.

    I thought it was if you are over the cap but under the luxury tax cap? Jazz aren't going over the luxury tax level in any situation that I have seen. But I could definitely be wrong on this.

    You're thinking of the tax-payer MLE. If you go over the cap, meaning using your cap space, you have a smaller exception to exceed the cap. Looks like it's actually a shade under $5M.

    So basically the Jazz don't believe any of their free agent targets are going to sign here so they know they need to upgrade the roster through a trade. With our lack of assets Conley is by far the best player we can hope to acquire in a trade so if we can't get him I think we're in trouble.

    We are getting a little dramatic here. Yes, Conley might be the best player we can trade for. However, we can still trade for one of the following guys who would help us out too:

    - DeMar DeRozan
    - Goran Dragic
    - Andrew Wiggins
    And a bunch of lower level guys who can help us out (Joe Harris, Josh Jackson, Ilyasova, etc.).

    Yes, Conley would make us better but some of you have to be prepared for other options. If Conley to Utah was a done deal, it would probably be done by now. Have you ever seen our FO so publicly talked about in a trade scenario and that scenario actually ended up happening?

    So if D'Lo isn't linked to the Suns, and Indy is wanting to sign Ricky, and Brooklyn is renouncing D'Lo... who else is competition to sign him? Dallas? I guess if the Conley trade goes through we will see what the FO values more. Conley is certainly better than D'Lo right now, but it is another stopgap short term solution at PG. I think if we trade for Conley there's more wiggle room as to who we can keep on the roster. Sure seems like this trade is going to happen. Way too much smoke not to...

    That's what we thought at the trade deadline...

    I think the Grizz getting the 2 pick changes a lot. I'm still going back and forth if I want this to happen or not. I think Conley is better than D'Lo and a better fit and leader. But I think waiting it out and signing a free agent like D'Lo or Harris could really change the perception of the franchise. And as a fan it would just be exciting to see. Either way I think we're going to come out with a really good player.

    Over the years I've continued to insist that we repeat this desert mirage phenomena indefinitely, cycling through the draft, free agency, and the trade deadline. We have some asset that we tell ourselves will be more valuable at ____ point, and then when that comes and goes, we simply insert whichever deadline is next and rationalize how we'll have that much more flexibility and purchasing power when we get there. Then that comes and goes and we say "FOR SURE" this time we'll make a move at the next deadline. I'm waiting for the "oh, Favors is going to be such a valuable expiring chip at the deadline" discussion.

    Memphis could just be leaking this again to try and get the Jazz to overpay. You're right, where's the competition for D-Lo? Seems like the Jazz are a pretty damn good fit for him at this point.

    Of course he's pissed, Harden almost burned down his house then denied EVERYTHING! I'd want out too.

    Honestly though, if DLo is SERIOUSLY considering the Suns, I think that is enough warning bells that I likely want no part of him on a Max. That is a dude looking for the most amount of money with the least amount of accountability. I'm not sure how much detail there is in that "story" other than "He's buds with Booker and liked an instagram post soooooo. . ." which is the state of NBA punditry today.

    Bruh... DeRozan will cost as much or more than Conley in a trade... those other players aren’t on conleys level... not even on the level below conleys.

    Would Houston include picks to get off Paul? If so, how many? Also, how many would it take for people here to say yes?

    There’s nothing they could give that would make me want Chris Paul. Their picks will be trash and he’s ALREADY starting to slow down. That contract is going to be an anchor wherever he’s at.
