I just don't think Knight over Kanter is at all comparable. I think its pretty even so need starts to factor in.
And the Jazz need skilled 270 + pounders. PG's are a lot easier to come by these days.
I think Jefferson will keep getting better a la Zach Randolph.
Maybe? His best numbers are years behind him already and he won't have Deron feeding him the ball anymore. Millsap is the same age and is the one that continues to improve
He needs a defensive C next to him though
Agreed on a different team. Made no sense whatsoever to acquire him in the first place when they had Milsap. The experiment has failed. Get rid of his contract.
ideally an athletic type like Favors
Is Favors a center? Again the question to me would be can they see the 20 year old Favors and the 19 year old Kanter on the floor together someday not what the overpriced and underachieving Jefferson might do someday other than cashing huge checks.
he needs to not play C himself
That might work in a different situation the way the NBA is right now but it doesn't work next to Millsap.
Knight can be on Deron's level IMO, so its a great way to rebuild. Knight,Favors,Harris for Williams will be a steal in 2 yers.
Won't ever be a steal. They got robbed anyway you look at it by taking the 2nd offer on the table instead of shopping for the best offer.
Knight/Burks would be a nice backcourt rebuild. Both have good size,scoring,athleticism and should develop as defenders.
I know an ESPN article said they were believed to have promised Jimmer at 12 or something along those lines. So maybe they are targeting a big like Kanter or Valanciunas. The latter seems to be moving up and seems like a better fit. Not sure if they would take Knight and Jimmer both or not.
Edit- I like the idea of moving up to 2 if it can be done for a reasonable price. Favors and 12 for Darko and 2?

The Jazz are working out Paul Carter (Illinois-Chicago), Jordan Hamilton (Texas), Tobias Harris (Tennessee), Tyler Honeycutt (UCLA), Marcus Morris (Kansas) and Chris Singleton (Florida State) on Sunday.
Brian T. Smith
The Utah Jazz will give another group of players a chance to make one lasting impression prior to Thursday's NBA Draft.
In what could be the Jazz's final pre-draft workout, the team on Monday morning will audition lottery potential shooting guards Alec Burks (Colorado) and Klay Thompson (Washington State).
They will be joined by Ole Miss guard Zach Graham, Boston swingman John Holland, Arkansas forward Delvon Johnson and St. Louis forward Willie Reed.
This follows the Jazz's Sunday morning workout, which included intriguing prospects such as Florida State forward Chris Singleton, Kansas forward Marcus Morris, Tennessee forward Tobias Harris, UCLA forward Tyler Honeycutt, Texas forward Jordan Hamilton and Illinois-Chicago forward Paul Carter (his second Jazz workout).
Former San Diego State forward Kawhi Leonard was originally scheduled to work out Sunday for the Jazz. But Leonard's session fell through, and he was not listed by the team for Monday's session, which is expected to be the final workout the Jazz will hold before the 2011 NBA Draft on Thursday in Newark, N.J.
Leonard was initially expected to selected during the first 10 picks, but his stock is reportedly falling as selection day approaches.
Leonard's decision not to work out with the Jazz appears to be a classic case of a player honing in on a few teams they believe will draft them, rather than working out for all franchises that are interested.
Messages left for Leonard's agent, Brian Elfus, have not been returned.
The 6-foot-7, 225-pound Leonard averaged 15.5 points and 10.6 rebounds last season while carrying the Aztecs to the Mountain West Conference tournament title. Highly athletic and possessing a larger than normal wingspan, Leonard has reportedly drawn interest from Sacramento (No. 7) and Charlotte (9).
