A few months ago, ESPN's Chad Ford speculated that the Utah Jazz were more likely to trade Al Jefferson than Paul Millsap. Now ESPN's Marc Stein reports that Millsap could be the one to go.  Or not. "I will say, though, that there's been more chatter recently to back the notion that Jefferson is staying put for the rest of the season," Stein reported, "Which is another way of saying that the Jazz, based on the latest forecasts on the personnel grapevine, intend to either trade Millsap or stand pat until the offseason." The Jazz have a glut of young bigs with Derrick Favors and "The Undertaker" Enes Kanter, so it's plausible that the team would move a veteran big man, especially with Jefferson and Millsap both becoming free agents at the end of the season.
