Utah has no first-round picks and had been attempting to land one in order to select Weber State point guard Damian Lillard, according to sources, but it's not known if Jazz general manager Kevin O'Connor has made any progress. Milwaukee (No. 12) has considered trading back, and would take a long look at Barton if it did. SI.com
The Blazers, Warriors, Raptors and Hornets are also looking at various options with their picks. I think the Blazers at No. 6 or No. 11 are the likeliest of that bunch to make a trade. They have interest in Jazz forward Paul Millsap and Rockets guard Kyle Lowry. ESPN.com
Warriors could make a lot of sense. Just let them keep their pick in the future. Who wants Jefferson and Harris though?
The #UtahJazz haven't lost interest in moving up in the NBA draft and have continued to talk to teams today. However, after spending the past two weeks eyeing several big-name prospects, Utah doesn't have much "hope" of securing a favorable draft-day deal with about 24 hours remaining before the No. 1 overall selection is made.

Fear not, Jazz fans. GM Kevin O'Connor is exploring ways to move up in the draft. They have the Warriors' pick in 2013 (top-six-protected) and veterans like Paul Millsap, Al Jefferson and Devin Harris, and they might even be willing to add another young player (as long as you don't ask for Derrick Favors or Enes Kanter).

The question is, how high can they go? Their presumed target is Weber State's Lillard. They need a point guard and know him better than any team in the league. But if they could get higher and get an even better prospect, they would. They like Beal and Kidd-Gilchrist a lot, too. ESPN.com
I really can't see trading Hayward or Millsap unless you don't think you can get him signed for a fair price. Burks maybe.
