@SpursG I guess Nothing is a loaded word...I guess I mean we would be giving up a potential (probable) All-Star Talent and focal point of an offense for a few good role players...We have a few good role players...from your point of view I would probably do this deal as like you said...you have a bunch of awesome role players and losing 3 wouldn't seem like it would effect the Spurs much...they always just find more good role players to plug holes...I think Jefferson would be a good fit with the Spurs, though the conflict of space with Duncan is a bit confusing, but understandably the Spurs want some one to take more of the load off of Duncan. I am hoping this rumor is dead...I like the DeAndre Jordan and Eric Bledsoe deal possibly for Jefferson that I have heard...I doubt anything will happen...The Jazz are ok, the young guys will get their time probably next year and either we trade for some missing parts, or have money to throw at someone.
10 months ago on Al Jefferson panic button engaged!
@CraigThomas I like our shooters, definitely a lot better there, the Log Jam at center is due more to too many players in the Post and not enough minutes for the young guys...I think the spacing and outside shooting are actually really good. Hayward could be the guy that I am thinking of, someone who can create his own shot and and be a facilitator...but he is still quite inconsistent, which hopefully continues to change.
I just see Al, as a near All-Star, and probably could have been an All-Star caliber of player and our go to guy, so to give him up for a bunch of role players scares me, to clear out the logjam for minutes we need either a playmaking point guard Dragic, Bledsoe...are a couple guys off the top of my head, and or a slasher/athletic shooting guard Derozan, I like Marshown Brooks potential as well. Splitter would just clog up the big man situation again, and is not as skilled as Big Al, Mills is a good shooter, but we have that in Foye, and Jackson just doesn't seem like a good Jazz fit, though he does have huge talent...his inconsistency and somewhat erratic behavior at times would drive Jazz fans crazy. No, in the long run if we can't address needs now, might as well see what happens in free agency and if Al leaves, use the money to address needs.
As a Jazz fan, I don't like this deal...nobody mentioned in this trade really tips the scales for me. The Jazz need a playmaker, and/or someone that could create their own shot. There is no reasonto give up big Al for nothing...might as well get something that u need. I understand creating room but rather get something of value back or if you end up leaving at the end of his contract, we will have money to spend in free agency.
