This team is stuck in a quandry. They need Jeffersons offense because there is
nobody else that can consistently provide as much but they don't need
another season of his doormat defense. We learned in the playoffs however that
his offense is not good enough to carry this team anywhere that matters so why
not cut our losses and move on?Personally I would rather seem the
Jazz unload Jefferson at the deadline and find a way to keep Millsap. Millsap
is a bit short but I think Favors ability to guard the rim would allow for it
and then you get the benefit of all the other things that Millsap does so
well.Favors has to take minutes from someone and get on the floor.
Hopefully we can play Millsap at the three in enough situations until the trade
deadline and get something done. I suspect though that Millsap sees the reality
facing him that Favors is going to take a chunk of his minuts and thus he did
not want to extend until something is resolved or determined to guarantee more
of a full time role for him.
