The Jazz took a gamble with their two unrestricted big men, and well they lost. Both Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap have decided to take their talents elsewhere.
Al Jefferson decided that he was better off served in Charlotte with the Bobcats. Jefferson will sign a three-year deal worth $40.5 million. Jefferson averaged 17.8 points and 9.2 rebounds last season.
As for Paul Millsap, the Jazz just lost him to the Atlanta Hawks. It’s being reported that Millsap will take a two-year deal with the Hawks for $19million.
Millsap averaged 14.6 points, 7.1 rebounds and 2.6 assists last season for the Hawks.
Losing these two players means that the Jazz will be without a combined 32.4 points and 16.3 rebounds per game, something I’m not sure a single player could produce on that team.
