Jefferson? Harris? Raja?

They need upgrades. A couple roster spots open. Cap space. Picks. Players. They have options.

Brian T. Smith: Jazz recieved numerous offers for Okur during past year. Held out for a deal they wanted. Lopez injury pushed it through.

7 million a year? Too much for AK. I think that's their plan since they got rid of Okur's contract though.

He's worth it more than Jefferson, Harris and Raja are worth what they get paid. He would make them better.

The only guy that even has the potential to give them what AK did defensively is Evans and he hasn't shown the ball handling and unselfish passing skills of AK(which are really needed with Harris at the 1) or rather he can do it consistently in a real game.

We still have no idea what AK will actually take to come back. He's supposedly asking for 9. Think he makes 5 in Russia some of which he has already made. He says he wants to be in Utah and in the NBA. They said they wanted him back. 7 or 8 is about right I'd say. Might be able to get him for considerably less? His market is drying up by the day to. NJ. Sacremento signed Hayes and Outlaw. Do they have anymore interest? Anyone else?

David Locke: For that reason if the Jazz sign a player for a 2 year deal it will have limited impact on their flexibility

Clarification if the Jazz still have the exception in the off-season they can't use both cap space and the exception - exception is bigger

Recently, the Dallas Mavericks acquired Lamar Odom from the Los Angeles Lakers using a similar trade exception.

Too bad the timing wasn't better. Would have loved Odom too! I'm sure the Lakers would have rather sent him to the Jazz as well.

Larry Coon, an NBA salary cap expert and ESPN.com contributor, said the exception Utah acquired via Okur’s trade will initially count toward the team’s 2011-12 cap level. The Tribune reported last week the Jazz are expected to enter the season with a team payroll of about $64 million to $66 million, placing the franchise above the $58 million cap but below the $70 million luxury tax. The Jazz recently used part of their mid-level exception to sign Howard, adding depth at small forward.

Anyone know what this means? Initially? When doesn't it count? They have 4 to 6 mill before they pay tax? I'm sure we won't ever see them paying tax again under the new rules.

"We're going to continue to look. We'll have some opportunities," O'Connor said. "You're never completely satisfied.

Looking at the roster and the past two games and end of last season I sure hope they aren't satisfied.

Remember how the Thunder used their cap space to steal Eric Maynor when the Jazz were desperate to shed Matt

Ouch! Tried to forget about that one. He'd sure be nice to have around now. Actually the Thunder will probably have to get rid of him now that they are over the cap and still have Westbrook, Ibaka and Harden to take care of in the not too distant future. He could be someone to get too.

Paul Millsap's injury — or whatever he's calling his right quadriceps tendinitis — is improving.

He shot around before practice Thursday, and hopes to rejoin the Jazz soon — and definitely in time for Tuesday's season-opener against the Lakers.

"No doubt," Millsap said. "I'll be able to play."

As expected.

Devin Harris has been a member of the Jazz for 10 months.

He still hasn’t found his comfort zone.

Limited to just 17 regular season and two preseason contests due to everything from the NBA lockout to nagging injuries, the seven-year veteran continues to search for a groove in Salt Lake City.

The lack of rhythm isn’t intentional. Harris joined the Jazz on Feb. 23 with high expectations, saying “playoffs” immediately came to mind after being rescued from New Jersey via the Deron Williams trade.

Tinsley already more comfortable running the offense.

David Locke: Jazz could have both the 10.8 million dollar trade exception and 5 to 6 million in cap space in the off-season -- depending on cap holds
