Devin Harris has been here before, but for how much longer will he be in Utah no one knows.
Over the last week – and even dating back as far as last June’s NBA Draft – Harris’ name has floated about in trade reports with the latest update coming early Friday morning that the Jazz are shopping the starting point guard they acquired last February from the New Jersey Nets in a package deal for Deron Williams.
Now it appears Harris could be on the move again with March 15th’s NBA trade deadline creeping up.
ESPN's Marc Stein reported Utah has been shopping Harris since the D-League showcase two weeks ago, a reminder that dates back to the 2011 draft when the Jazz used Harris as a bartering chip to no avail.
So why move a young point guard who could help anchor and develop an offense that includes Al Jefferson, Josh Howard, Paul Millsap and the rookie combination of Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter?

A major blunder by the Utah Jazz has left some of its fans angry. According to the Deseret News, all fans who entered a mobile app drawing for free tickets to the Jazz-Mavericks game last Thursday received a notification telling them they had won.

Apparently a technical malfunction...

Matched up against Kevin Love, Millsap shot 6 of 7 in the final period on a variety of fallaway jumpers and shots at the rim to help the Jazz win for the ninth time in 11 games.

Here’s Utah Jazz guard C.J. Miles (You can see the very sexy model CJ Miles here) absolutely destroying most everyone who had a Dallas Mavericks jersey on.
Last night the Dallas Mavericks were 2.5 point favorites against the Utah Jazz, meaning that if you bet on Dallas you needed them to win by at least 3, and if you bet on Utah lose by no more than 2. Well as I am watching the end of the end of this game, Utah is down 6 with 16.9 seconds left and no realistic shot at winning or covering. After a scramble…Utah hits a 3 with 1.7 seconds...
