Re: Anybody Think Rip or Tay Will Be Traded In The Next Two Days?
Sounds liek tay stays, but I'm praying for a deal. Trade Rip and maybe STuckey if necessary. I'd love to get a Fesenko/Jefferson package from Utah now that they have Favors next o Milsap and Okur(back soon if not already). They'd love to dump Jefferson's deal I bet and they aren't fans of Fesenko.
Rip's deal is just as much as Jefferson's or close, but Jefferson and Milsap don't fit that well together and they need to play Favors a lot of minutes to find out about him. Rip would be a good fit at SG for Utah with Miles backing up Rip and Hayward off the bench. I think if we gave them Rip,Summers and our 1st we could seal the deal.
Our frontcourt would be much better all of a sudden. Fesenko is underrated. The Jazz have a HUGE plus/minus differential when he's on the court. Put him next to Jefferson and you have a big frontcourt that can clog the lane a big and also of coruse give you post scoring. Fesenko is very unskilled on both ends, but his size alone makes him an imposing defensive presence. He's also very physical. Put those 2 thumpers with Monroe and CHarlie and you have a nice mix. Clear Rip out of the perimeter rotation and you are looking even better. Jefferson has Prince,Gordon and Daye to free up space for him down low.
I think Prince will be extended for about MLE money
