Mirotic cannot play defense. He would be an asset to the Jazz with Rudy on the
floor, but playing without a defensive five he would be a liability. Having him
and Hood on the floor together would really facilitate a porous defense. That
being said, his ability to shoot would help the team as Quinn is currently
trying to build it. Beating teams 138 to 135. I think AB and a draft pick would
be enough. Favors and AB is a little steep and leaves the Jazz extremely
vulnerable if Rudy is hurt.
So this guy is shooting 48%, 46% from 3, grabbing 7 boards, 17 pts per game in
25min, and has an adjusted FG% of 60%. He is a big 6'10 that can shoot.
He spreads the floor and should drastically improve spacing, something the Jazz
need to open lanes for Mitchell, while open up shots for Hood and Ingles. I love Favors and his commitment to Utah but this feels like a no
brainer. I'd be willing to free up both Favors and AB. I'd miss them
both and give standing applause each time they returned but we need a shooting
big man to pair with Gobert and open the driving lanes. Do it. Do it now!
Jazz need a proven big. ( See Anthony Davis and Cousins ) This guy can
score AND rebound.Losing AB doesn't give meany trauma nor anxiety at
all. Favors is playing well because it is a contract year. Give him
another fat contract and he will just go back to sleep for a few seasons.
Would LOVE to get this guy! He's exactly what our team needs. Please,
Jazz, PLEASE make it happen!
I fail to see a negative to trading one of our currently lame duck players.
Wow, another good shooting big man, sounds like something we need!
Gobert and Mitchell are the only players that aren't available for trade.
Favors is the most likely because he is injury prone, has an expiring contract
and undoubtedly will want more and we will get less for the money. Plus he and
Rudy have proven they can't play together. Burkes just doesn't fit in
with the way the Jazz play, Rubio can't throw it in the ocean, Exum has yet
to show he can do anything but get injured, etc, etc, etc.
Pull the trigger. Jazz are desperate for some offense.
