Adam Buys: Trade possibility on ESPN: Jrue/Cole from Pelicans, Burke/Burks/2nd rd pick from Jazz. Jrue could play w/ Exum. – Tony Jones: Alec Burks isn’t on the block, from what I can tell.

Not sure if I like that or not because of Jrue's injury history. Not ready to call Alec injury prone. Last year's surgery was from college injury. If they can do it without Alec or the rest of the core I'm in. Don't need Cole either.

I like the 2nd one with the late firsts and Trey. I'd probably do that.

The Utah Jazz have had multiple discussions with teams about a trade involving guard Trey Burke ahead of Thursday’s NBA trade deadline, The Salt Lake Tribune has learned from league sources.

Quote:
Dante Exum, the starter from last season at point guard, has missed all of the 2015-2016 season so far, and will miss the remainder of the 2015-2016 season as well.


Can someone point me to where anyone with the Jazz has said he will miss the whole year? They've never said it.


Quote:
There are four bench players who have played over 500 minutes off the bench this season -- Trey Burke, Trevor Booker, Joe Ingles, and Alec Burks. These players are the 1st point guard off the bench, the 1st big off the bench, and the 3rd and 4th wings on the team. These four guys are your best bench players and they have played the four most minutes.

Debatable as to if they are the best or not. Ingles has been in and out of the rotation

Quote:
Furthermore, the team seems to do WELL with some guys on the floor, who just aren't playing. It's hard to overlook Jeff Withey here, as he actually leads the team in +/- and at least with the bigmen, he's more efficient than the guy getting minutes ahead of him. I don't know why this is, but we can guess in the comments section.

You really don't know why? It seems obvious to me that development comes before winning. I think the front office would rather be in the lottery. No other reason that their 3rd or 4th best big doesn't play unless they are forced to because of injuries. How many games has Lyles playing over Withey cost them this year?

Quote:
Burke as a bench scorer works at an average level. He's not great or good yet.

Last I heard he was like 3rd leading bench scorer in the league. How is that average?

Quote:
Trey does impress. Let's start with the fact that he's shooting 4.3 three pointers a game and making 34.7% of them.

That isn't very good.

Quote:
Trey is better than Jameer this year because of better stats, including a better three point percentage and attempts) for the point guards, I'll do so here, and place Booker in the 11th to 20th ranking for PF / Bigs. This tells me that the Jazz could upgrade this position easier than point guard. But that's just how I feel. Booker's role with the team, and his minutes, have been one of few constants this season. He has done amazing things. But I feel as though his on court performance has been lesser than the role he has been given.

He'd look a lot better if Withey was playing instead of Lyles. Hard to really compare Booker by using stats. His energy has been the difference in many games this year.

Quote:
Joe is a Jack of all trades, he can help with shooting, defending, play making. But some of the top playoff teams have a fourth wing who is a specialist, not a generalist.


I'd say he's a specialist. He helps handle the ball and run the offense, spots up for 3's and tries to defend. I wouldn't call him a jack of all trades.


Quote:
(Of course, the x-factor here is "Will Raul Neto be a better bench point guard than Trey Burke?" and in that case we speculate that he will. Burke isn't competing against Neto right now, but he will next season if he's still on the team.)

Will Exum be a better starter than Neto? Neto is better now than Exum was last year.

Quote:
The Jazz may have the future specialist 3rd big in the wings with Trey Lyles. He turned 20 during the season and already does a number of things better than Booker.


As does Withey. Lyles should be in the D-league.


Quote:
But some of the answers may already be on the team already. Jeff Withey and Trey Lyles should eat into Booker's minutes.

This guy is really under appreciating what Booker brings. Not surprising. I get the feeling like he doesn't even watch games but just crunches numbers.

Quote:
Having Alec back will give the bench a shot in the arm that they've been missing for so long. And having him back means that someone like Ingles is the 4th wing, and not the 3rd wing anymore.


Ingles/Johnson depending on match-ups

Front load his contract for next year when they will have a lot of cash.

Figured they'd keep him. They must be talking trade.

Andy Larsen: Last Thurs, I estimated Jazz had a 65% chance of making a trade this week. Sources I’ve talked to since say that was a reasonable guess.

Quote:
Rudy Gobert leads the team in TS%. It doesn’t mean that Rudy is the Jazz’s best offensive player, because you can’t draw up a play for Rudy to dunk every possession. Context does matter. But I would argue that Rudy’s incredible efficiency does make up for a lot of his offensive deficiencies. It’s super valuable to have a big man who can dunk anything within 8 feet of the hoop. It puts tremendous pressure on a defense. I wouldn’t argue that Rudy is the Jazz’s best offensive player, but he might be their best offensive weapon.

Not to mention his passing, screens and offensive boards. And most people think he sucks on offense!

Quote:
If the Jazz replaced Trevor Booker with a player like Ed Davis, they would take a big leap.

Not sure it's that simple. It's hard to quantify what Booker brings to the table with his relentless energy. Only reason I'd be looking to trade him is because he's probably gone in the off-season though I hope he'll be back as the 5th or 6th big. I do like Ed Davis though!

Quote:
Almost all of the trade chatter around the Jazz is whether they will address that need. Jeff Teague, George Hill, Jrue Holiday, Darren Collison, Patrick Beverly, and soon to be Ricky Rubio, are some of the names that get tossed around the most in regards to the Jazz.

Could have signed Beverly in the off-season and didn't.

Quote:
Jared Dudley – To me, Dudley is still the perfect mix of price, ability, leadership, etc. If the Jazz don’t swing a trade for him, he should be high on their free agency list this offseason.
My guess is his age keeps him off their radar. He'd be their oldest guy. They seem to want to get even younger if anything.
  1. Quote:
    Omri Casspi – I still love Casspi’s ability to be an under the radar acquisition that gets hot enough every few Jazz games to make close battles into blowouts. Great shooting season and adequate defense.
Be a nice pick-up. Not sure they can get him from a team they are battling for a playoff spot with and at what cost?


Quote:
Darren Collison – Collison is not a point guard in the traditional sense. He would be a super efficient version of what Trey Burke brings off the bench. I would still start Neto, but Collison would lift the bench to much greater heights. If I were the Jazz, I would rather offer the Kings Trey Burke, Alec Burks, and a future first round pick for Collison and Casspi, than any of the above mentioned point guards. I do understand the opposite view though.
Might be a bit on the old side too though he's close to the age of their oldest guys. He's a proven starter. Seems like he could be had. Be hard to see Alec go but it looks like a pretty good deal.
Quote:
Channing Frye – Frye is getting out of the age range, but he would cost very little to acquire (other than his remaining 3 years on his contract). Trey Lyles is ready to get consistent minutes, but he’s not ready to give a consistent impact on the game yet. Frye, Lyles, Gobert and Favors, would be a balance of position, know-how, and offensive spacing.
Too old. Someday I imagine they'll look at some older vets but right now Withey is too old at 25 to play over Lyles at 19 despite being the better player. The 3 years isn't ideal either but probably doable. Also a weak rebounder.

Quote:
Future 2nd Round Pick – This would come along with some salary from New York, Miami, or Chicago. Probably the least exciting, but also most likely of all Jazz deadline-day acquisitions. But 2nd round picks can be beneficial for the Jazz, even if they just turn into cash one day.

Most likely scenario. They opened up a roster spot too so I imagine they are looking at salary dumps if nothing else.

Quote:
The merits of this dunk have been widely contested on Twitter. Is it a dunk if he throws the ball into the hoop? Regardless of where you stand on the issue, this play speaks to Burks’ freakish athleticism. Bonus points for doing this anywhere in the vicinity of DeAndre Jordan.

It was right after this he tried to do it again and got hurt. I got the feeling he was trying to prove something and maybe throw it down so there was no question on rather it was a dunk or not. He had been happy making acrobatic shots.

Quote:
in terms of players, the Jazz don't have much to offer, if they want to make a deal.

Disagree. Withey is a 2nd tier rim protector and the rest of his game is nice too and he could definitely help someone possibly even start. I think the rest of their team could too and all have favorable contracts not to mention one of the best players not in the league in Tomic. Look at what Charlotte just gave up for Lee. Jazz could have easily made a better offer than that if Memphis wanted to help them and the Jazz wanted to make a move which I'm not sure they do!

Quote:
The Jazz currently have two roster spots open and a little over $7 million to play with, which means they can potentially absorb a contract as well.

They have one spot but they could cut Withey and Johnson for not much money. Non-guaranteed next year. Booker also a FA after the year if they had to cut him it's only a couple months salary though a bit more than the other two.

Quote:
Reports had the Jazz pursuing Atlanta Hawks point guard Jeff Teague. But league sources inform the Tribune the Jazz are no longer looking in that direction.

Too expensive for their taste I imagine.

Alex Kennedy: “The two guys I’ve heard the Kings are looking to move, or at least are open to moving, is Rudy Gay and Darren Collison. I’ve been told those guys want out. Rudy Gay especifically I think he wants out, that’s what I’ve heard. So don’t be surprised if Rudy Gay gets traded before the deadline. I think he’s upset, I think he’s open to being traded and he’s pushing for that.”

He's available. I'd guess the Jazz would have to have a much superior offer to get him from a conference rival though.

Something I've been doing with Jazz games recently is watching specifically Gobert instead of the ball, and it is incredible the spacing he gives on both offense and defense, he's got the overall spacing game down.

Quote:

I just can't see the Jazz making any sort of moves right now. They just had a 7 game win streak and they're almost 100% healthy, I just think they'll be too protective of anyone not named Trey Burke, but I doubt he alone could get us anything that good
