San Antonio fans think that this trade works to their advantage. Not a good sign for Utah fans.

We need to keep Milsap to match up with stretch fours. We don't want favors sitting on the perimeter al game.

If the Jazz trade Jefferson for Mills and Splitter I will never watch another Jazz game. Out of Millsap and Jefferson the jazz should keep Jefferson. He is better offensively and the jazz need scorers. They have no defense with or without Millsap.

Both of those "rumored" trades seem like an absolute joke.

As a season ticket holder for 28 years I will not renew if Jefferson is with the Jazz next year. The Jazz will never be much more then a 500 team with Jefferson and Milsap starting. We can make up Jefferson's offence. He scores because everything runs through him. And he makes no effort on defence.

Only trade if it makes sense long term. Don't mess up the flexibility we will have with all the salary coming off the books next year. Teams like the Celtics are stuck with all their contracts. The Jazz are in a way better spot than many franchises.

To all those whining while the Jazz are rebuilding.... At least the Jazz are competitive. How many awful years have the Bulls had since MJ left? Until the last 3-4 years they were really bad. How long did the Knicks suffer after Ewing and Starks? The Rockets, Magic, Kings..... the list goes on and on.

why would it make a trade tantilizing because the gm came from there? before i made either one of those trades i would do nothing and let al's money come off the book dont know why they would trade millsap to brooklin for humpheries and morrow. humpheries makes 12 mil millsap 7 mil. humpheries will cost about as much as millsap"s yearly contract for the rest of this year plus however much morrowis making. WHAT A DEAL. for brooklin. they will save about 10 mill for half a year and get millsap. only way i would make that deal is if it was bledso.

i would trade jefferson in a heartbeat...yeah...he has a lot of impressive low post moves...but he hinders the development of 4 young guys...and that's not good for the team...we all would want to see Favors Kanter Burks and Hayward develop...if Jefferson and Millsap is around...the offense wont be a smooth passing display...it would be..dump to either bigs and wait around till one kicks out...we should be playing smart basketball on both sides of the court big al only does one...so i'd rather send him out...but...i wont take splitter and patty mills for him...i would get a legit player out of him....i'd say...Vasquez from New Orleans and some more quality players...a three team deal...with NO...Big Al to spurs...NO gets Splitter and mills...we get NO first round picks (no condition) Vasquez and Aminu and Nando de colo from San antonio
