The Utah Jazz are stuck int he middle of the Western Conference and have a big decision to make. Al Jefferson is going to be a free agent this summer and the team is itching to develop younger players stuck behind him in the rotation like Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter. And there definitely seems to be a desire to try and feature Paul Millsap more. It would make sense then the Jazz would think about trading Al Jefferson. And if they do, the rumor, according to Chris Sheridan of Sheridan Hoops reports, is the Spurs will be there to catch the burly post player, one of the best in the game. And this brings an interesting dilemma for both the Jazz and the Spurs moving forward. From the Jazz's point of view, they get some value for a successful player that they do not appear willing to resign and is preventing younger players from playing. Jefferson is indeed one of the best post players in the game, averaging 17.1 points per game and 9.6 rebounds per game. He is a pretty sur...

Utah Jazz: Trade Proposals For Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson

  The Utah Jazz have a very bright future, headlined by their ridiculously talented young frontcourt duo, made up by Enes Kanter and Derrick Favors, the 3rd picks in the 2011 and 2010 drafts respectively. They also have two very talented young wings in recent lottery picks,  Gordon Hayward and Alec Burks, the former, is already their best perimeter scorer. That is a lot of young...

Al Jefferson panic button engaged!

In case you missed it yesterday, Chris Sheridan did something that usually isn't done in the middle of the season.  He reported a rumor about the San Antonio Spurs.  That trade involved the Utah Jazz and center Al Jefferson.  Sheridan didn't have anything concrete, but he did say any trade would likely involve both Stephen Jackson and Tiago Splitter.  Here's a couple...

Al Jefferson trade rumors: San Antonio Spurs are the "frontrunners"

The Utah Jazz's trade situation with Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap remains fluid. A few months ago, ESPN's Chad Ford speculated that the Jazz were more likely to trade Jefferson than Millsap. Then ESPN's Marc Stein reported that Millsap could be the one to go. And now comes today's report from Chris Sheridan: "The San Antonio Spurs are the front-runners...

Mo Williams upset with Bill Simmons for saying Jazz need a point guard

Beware, media members: If you question Mo Williams’ abilities, he may be listening, and he will be ready to fire back. ESPN’s Bill Simmons analyzed the Utah Jazz before the Miami Heat-Los Angeles Clippers game aired on ESPN Friday, and one of his comments was that Utah needed a new point guard. Williams, who plays point guard for the Jazz, heard Simmons’ comment and didn...

Luke Ridnour on the trade block, could be dealt to the Utah Jazz

Luke Ridnour's name has been floated on the trade block, and one potential destination for the Minnesota Timberwolves' point guard is the Utah Jazz. NBA reporter Chris Sheridan reported that Ridnour is on the block due to Ricky Rubio rounding back into form and the Wolves' glut of guards (J.J. Barea). The Utah Jazz are interested, but a swap of Ridnour for Alec...

Bulls-Jazz Preview

The Chicago Bulls' six-game road trip hasn't gone as well as they'd hoped, and ending it on a positive note won't come easy against a Utah Jazz team playing extremely well at home. Utah seeks an 11th victory in its last 12 tries at EnergySolutions Arena while trying to send Chicago to a season worst-tying third straight defeat Friday night. The Jazz (28-22) haven...

Jazz-Kings Preview

The second meeting this week between the Utah Jazz and Sacramento Kings could be the last one ever. In search of a bounce-back performance Saturday night, the Jazz are looking to again capitalize on the lowly Kings, who now seem more likely to move north on a map than in the standings. Utah (28-23) has taken two of three season meetings versus Sacramento (17-33), including Monday...
