It is sad that it has come to this. You know a team is not doing so hot when all the bloggers start making up trades and analyzing them. I have especially enjoyed watching other teams bloggers make deals robbing the Jazz. They make for very good entertainment. If you think I am going to present a trade deal I have come up with, think again. Instead I am going to show you a few I have seen. Let me know which ones you like, if any.
Either way, I must give credit to the front office of the Jazz. They are probably one of the tightest lipped offices in the NBA. We will truly not know about any trade until it happens. Thus, why sports writers and bloggers alike are out to create their own trades and see what happens.
Trade #1:via SLCDunk.com:
Celtics receive: Al Jefferson, Mo Williams, Enes Kanter
Jazz Receive: Rajon Rondo, Courtney Lee, Fab Melo, Jeff Green, and best 1st Round Pick in 2013
My Take: This trade to me is lukewarm which probably means it is about right. When it comes to trading, you should be able to say you know your team is better. However, a trade is now even if you make the deal and then go to your room to do a victory dance. It would pain me to see Kanter go as I believe he has an amazing amount of untapped talent. But to get a PG like Rondo and the rest of these pieces would be fantastic.
Trade #2: via Brad Doolittle (ESPN Insider):
Celtics Receive: Mo Williams and Al Jefferson
Jazz Receive: Rajon Rondo, Brandon Bass, and Courtney Lee
My Take: Done, Done , and Done. How could the Jazz even consider passing up on this trade. A PG to replace Mo which is an upgrade in everything except 3 point shooting. Bradon Bass can fill in for the young guys when they are in early foul trouble. Oh, and Courtney Lee…
Trade #3: via Tom Haberstroh (ESPN Insider):
Lakers Receive: Paul Millsap, Mo Williams, DeSagana Diop, and Raja Bell
Jazz Receive: Pau Gasol, Kemba Walker, Ben Gordon, and Earl Clark
Bobcats Receive: Al Jefferson, Enes Kanter, Chris Duhon, Darius Johnson-Odom
My Take: Hell No! This trade sacrifices all the Jazz big man depth for a big man rotation of Gasol, Favors, and Evans. Say what!? No way this deal gets done. Jazz should just go direct to the Bobcats. How about a trade ending with Kemba in a Jazz uniform?
