Don't really see a trade with either of those teams unless they want Fessenko too. Bird supposedly like Almond as well but now that they have Rush I doubt they'd want him. Jazz would probably like to open up a roster spot more than get the defensive center they need.

Wow. Almond has a rep for being a system learner. I thought we'd trade CJ before him.

Well...here's to getting a defensive big!

He's learned the system. He's one dimensional. He's the last swing man on the bench. Even if Korver and Price leave he's still behind 4 guys. Could get time when AK and Harpring go down. They'll likely carry 13 guys next year so it makes more sense to save around a million with a minimum wage rookie. They'll need every penny. Now they have options. His expiring contract could be easier to trade.

Why? CJ is younger and better.

More likely to open up a roster space. Spurs have a couple guys on partial guarantees I think. Who needs a big with Jaron around?

Sean Williams from the Nets is supposedly available. He's a pretty good shotblocker. Almond + Fes for Williams works money wise.

Williams was labeled a headcase coming out of college no way the Jazz touch him and he wouldn't play anyway. They need a vet.

Eh, Fes and Almond don't play either.

Still, i'm not expecting Almond to be traded, he'll probably walk for nothing.

Exactly. Need someone that will contribute.

Probably but who knows. Expiring contract. Young guy with scoring potential. Maybe after some teams cut guys before their contracts become guaranteed for the year.
