You'd have to hope so. Mark Jackson promised playoffs this year, so I doubt ownership would be happy with another sucky year, and Jackson's job could be on the line over it. And at the very least it's still an asset they could use in another trade down the line.

I'd consider trading it now if they can get into the draft and get someone they want.

Yea, makes sense if you see a player you really want. I'm not sure who'd be willing to give up a 1st now for a 1st later though.

Marshall. Their own pick next year won't be that good if they get the right players this year.

Royce Young: Eric Maynor is on the practice floor doing some pretty aggressive shooting drills. Great to see. Twitter

How'd he look running the Jazz offense? I think I only saw him once.

He could probably be had though coming off injury he might have to sign for a lot less money and OKC might be able to afford him now.

Over the next few weeks, don’t be surprised if a large number of teams outside of the lottery try to trade their first-round pick. Multiple sources have told HOOPSWORLD that a lot of teams are trying to get rid their pick, which could make for an interesting draft night. “Almost everyone wants to get out of their pick in this draft,” said one Western Conference executive. “For some teams, it’s hard to take on money for multiple years in this economic climate, especially if the player would not make an impact and help the team win immediately.” HoopsWorld

Sounds like plenty of opportunities if they want in.

O’Connor and other members of the Jazz staff travel to Chicago this week for the pre-draft camp as they begin their search for the next Millsap or Williams.

When they return home, the Jazz will invite a handful of players to Utah for workouts during a 10-day period prior to the draft.

As always, O’Connor said, the goal is to find and draft "the best player available."

If the best player available isn't a pg or at least a combo guard or someone they can leave stash overseas they should trade or sell the pick.

Word has it Nash and the Suns have agreed that if Nash is leaving Phoenix that the franchise would help facilitate a sign and trade deal to insure Steve gets the maximum dollars for his services and the Suns get something in return for him. Meaning all bets are off on where Nash lands, as cap space and exception money won’t be a huge factor. HoopsWorld

The Suns have made it clear they would do a multi-year deal for Nash in the $10 million per year range to insure Nash stays in Phoenix. HoopsWorld

Nash’s connection with the support and medical staff in Phoenix is a real trump card, as Nash does have spondylolisthesis in his back, and that will factor into his decision. Nash has remained fairly healthy in Phoenix and has played far longer than most thought he would as a result. Nash routinely credits the Phoenix training staff as a key reason why. HoopsWorld

TPE/expiring contracts/future picks might get it done?

Rusty Simmons: Two things overheard in the NBA pre-draft combine lobby that might interest Warriors fans: 1. Chicago is not expected to pick up the $3.7 million option on point guard C.J. Watson; 2. Swingman Josh Howard would love to play for the Warriors. Sulia

They don't have big money to spend so we should be able to keep Josh away from them if we want. Watson might be someone for the Jazz to look at too.

Shaun Powell: Hornets will entertain offers for 10th pick if someone also agrees to take Ariza or Okafor contracts. Twitter

Looks like Ariza/Jack(and Vasquez) works for Devin, Earl and Raja. Throw in whatever picks to make it work. Ariza has 2 more years on his deal. While not the great shooter they need and a bit overpaid he could be a good fit and they could afford him even though he cuts into what could be big cap space next year. Jack could start or ideally come off the bench as a combo guard and again not the great shooter they need but a good fit especially off the bench and coming off a career year. Also an expiring contract at a bit less than half of the 3 guys the Jazz give up. The 10th pick they could probably get Marshall or Lilliard. Vasquez looks like a pretty good fit too though not a great shooter either if you want him thrown in on the deal as well. With his size he could play next to Jack.

Veteran point guard Jose Calderon (who possesses an expiring contract in 2012-13) and young big man Ed Davis are among the players that the Raptors would conceivably be willing to put into a trade package. ESPN.com

Sounds like they want a veteran small forward though.

Marc Stein: Draft buzz: Hearing that teams calling Hornets being told that it'll take more to get No. 10 pick than taking on Ariza or Okafor contract Twitter

How much more? Expiring contracts/TPE/GS protected pick/future Jazz picks could be quite a lot with or without Jack and/or Vasquez in the deal. They want Jefferson next to Davis? They'd actually be a good pair.

You're in luck. Introducing Devin Harris!

Wonder if they Jazz talked to him just in case?

If drafted, Hummel likely will be a late second-round selection. He has a workout coming up with the Bulls as well as ones with the Cavaliers, Jazz and Pacers. There are about a dozen workouts planned in total before draft night. "A lot of teams are interested," Hummel said. "It helps that doubt has been eliminated with my knees. As long as I keep that going in the right direction, I'm confident I'll be taken." Chicago Tribune

Looks like their kind of player but they don't need him.
