Certainly from the standpoint of his defense and passing, I give my vote of confidence, for whatever it's worth, in Ronnie Brewer. I hope Fesenko gets well soon and gets back into the swing of things, and in the meantime that Kosta Koufos sees some minutes in the meantime and beyond. And I hope D-Will gets the coaches' vote for All-Star.

Peace out from the Jazz Oracle!

Not a salary dump but trading Ronnie to a contender with us for playoff spot for draft picks, that O Connor will waste anyway makes 0 SENSE

Chuck Nunn

Yeah, that's why I don't think it'll happen. The Wizards are looking for equal value for Antawn Jamison, so IF there's a trade, it ought to be Boozer for Jamison, but I'm not aching to see Boozer go, especially if we can get our young big guys in to help bolster the defense. But if a trade HAS to happen, that's the one I'd like to see.

This team has seemed to find it's groove lately. Hopefully, they continue the solid play of late. I really think they should wait until after the season to make any changes. It's so hard to find chemistry again once you make a trade or two. Boozer is playing at an all-star level right now. I say just finish this thing out with the players you've got. Unless, of course, a team offers one of those "Pau Gasol for a few scrubs and a box of popcorn" deals.

I like Jamison idea. Even with ugly shots he is stud guy.

Brewer is just another average player on a team loaded with very little NBA quality ballplayers. We need shooters and agressive big men. Brewer needs a team that plays a running style; Phoenix and Golden State. He cannot dribble or pass, but can run.

Without Brewer the Jazz have weaker defense and all for a draft pick, and cash. They are loosing Brewer because they gave a contract to Miles, who belongs in the d-league. Trade Miles and keep Brewer. This is not good news for a team with an already soft defensive. The Jazz staff loves Miles, I don't get it. Help me understand, please!

Ronnie Brewer

Is the kind of player a fan can root for. He plays hard and brings it every night. He doesn't get into trouble and seems to be a class young man. I hope the Jazz hold on to him for a long time!

Why wouldn't the Jazz want a 1st round draft pick...they might be able to get over the Western Conference middle of the pack hump. They certainly won't do it with the team they have now. Ship Brewer FedEx First Overnight to Memphis.

Re: j

Yeah you want the jazz to ship off brewer and you can watch the jazz draft another waste of a first round draft pick i know ronnie brewer isnt the best defender or the best shooter but he is a hardworker and you can't find to many guys that will do that.

Re: j

So you want to send one of our better defenders for a pick that is going to be 17+ this year? (Either the Lakers pick, the Denver pick or Memphis's own?) Don't think the draft is THAT deep this year.

Hey j

Grizz do not want to give up there 2010 pick so that probably means the pick would be the following year. So the Jazz get two this year and two in next years draft. That does not make any sense from the standpoint that we pay four rookies to play in the D-league for two years then ride the bench for a year and out. Sloan is clueless on getting rookies game time on the floor or developing them. So getting draft pick for players is not a good decision until Sloan leaves. Not only that doing that means they are wanting to rebuild again which is not smart. Jazz need some veteran leadership on this team and a new coach.

I`m a Ronnie B fan,good hard worker who has an all-around game,just like AK when he gets minutes,keep Ronnie here,he`s a real Jazzman,get rid of miles, the dead weight,Go Jazz

Re : E

I don`t think the Jazz staff loves miles,I think they`re stuck with him,he has no value,hopefully they are trying to showcase him to garner some interest,problem is that he is worthless/useless,who would would want him, especially at 4.7 million year

laughable

i bet the jazz were laughing at this offer. i mean come on. brewer for a non-lottery draft pick? a proven lottery pick that plays pretty decent defense and can score and rebound and steal, for a draft pick we dont even know yet. all to save 3 million. i think even KOC is smarter than that. here's a better idea. trade miles to them for a draft pick and save even more money. then THEY can continue on developing the now 4 year project. THAT's who's wasting the team's money. with the savings on that we can extend brewer's contract in the off season and have an open spot for someone else.

REE.J

Besides the reasons that already got sent back to you, Tell me one first round pick the jazz have made since Brewer that plays any amount of time? THERE IS NOT ANY, in fact the only first rounder on the jazz since Brewer is Koufus and how much does he help the Jazz?

jazz fans

keep ronni dont be dumb

CL

Re Houdini ; You like to rile Miles don't you.
I don't think the Jazz will trade Brewer. I don't think KO will make a trade unless it helps the team.

badidea

Don't trade Brewer!!! The Jazz need his hustle.

Brewer

I refuel on chocolate milk don't trade me!
