    Horford .. if Jazz can get him cheap. But this may mean Jazz cut ties with Favors which I don't want to despite all the good reasons.

    Why would we want Horford? He can't guard 4's and wouldn't be a good fit next to Gobert.

    Kevin Love is a Center now. He doesnt really work well at PF.

    There is a way to get Horford, Conley and keep Favors. Imagine what this team could do with Conley, Donovan, Mitchell and a front court trio of Gobert, Favors and Horford. We would be instant contenders.

    Yeah. There are 96 minutes in each game so there`s enough to eat for all three guys to be happy.

    Me too. I like saric and Covington quite a bit and even like teague a little (would rather have teague than Rubio) and the 11th pick would be nice

    I'm fine with Teague. Decent player. Averaged 8+ assists per game last year. Can score the ball too.

    Teague, Saric and Covington combine to make $33. It's possible we do other wheeling and dealing to try to keep Favors too. If we traded Korver, Bradley, renounce Neto and Niang, we could have $10+.

    I don't think Favors is for sure coming back... I think the Jazz will probably be aggressive during the first few days of FA to see if they can upgrade at the position.

    Favors is 50/50 coming back. The Conley news I'm sure has made a few free agents reconsider some things.

    Here is what I think happens... we can shop the contract during the draft... see if anything turns up... can kick the tires on some stretch 4 or wing options with 17M... Rudy Gay, Niko, Jamychal Green... If you can nab one at a decent value you waive Favs and then use the leftover space and room exception for center and backup guard.

    If you come up empty you just keep him and swear that was the plan all along.

    My guess is we are more likely than not to keep him... but there are some interesting possibilities.

    Say Sacramento wants him as a one year starter... move him for Bjelica... then they can save some additional space... we get a cheap stretch option and have 10m left to work with.

    Boston may want some certainty and has some extra picks... I doubt they’d give up 22 but stranger things have happened on draft night.

    Charlotte may want to impress Kemba... maybe Williams and their second for Favs.

    I hope we kick all the tires but my guess is it will be very superficial and then we’ll just keep Favs.

    Locke's talked about him... so for that reason alone I could see it. I think he makes the Jazz significantly better.

    50/50 seems waaay ambitious. I’d bet it’s more like 90/10 that Fav is back. Unless we have a godfather offer during the draft or both Ariza and Danny Green are beating down the door to sign with the Jazz, I just don’t see the scenario where it happens.

    More than likely he comes back. I do think the Jazz make some discrete inquiries to see where the value is and, if something is there, get it done. Utah needs some depth in a general sense, so we'll see where it goes. But Conley solves a lot of issues I saw with the team. As Favors continues to extend his range, all the better.

    Still need a shooters and general depth though, but nothing outright glaring. Our starting five runs with anyone at this point.

    Trade Favors and Exum for Otto Porter and Valentine.

    We might need a 3rd team to take Favors but that seems easy enough.


    Or the dream is sign and trade those two for Tobias who demands he wants to be here.

    I like that Otto Porter trade. Short of some creative trade, I really like the idea of kicking the tires on guys like Danny Green and Trevor Ariza. Luc Mbah a Moute on a vet minimum has some appeal to me too. Danuel House on the Rockets impressed some. If he becomes unrestricted, that’s another value guy that could help us a bit.
