Rockets/Jazz Trade Idea
Straight up, Kevin Martin for Al Jefferson.
Both players are expiring, and the contracts are near equal. Utah's system would be great balance for his scoring ability, and they would get rid of one of their million cogs, allowing for Kanter to get more time and for Favors to get a chance to start. Favors' defense is terrific and he's a terrific shot-blocker, taller, a better fit than Jefferson.
Houston has a center in Asik, allowing Jefferson to finally play his best position at PF. Asik is a great defender and has nothing to do with offense, allowing Jefferson all the room to play the post and giving him a great defender to play alongside of. I imagine that McHale would be a huge fan of Jefferson's game.
