Let the crazy trade talks begin!

So I wanted to be the first person to make a knee jerk reaction to our only preseason game and start suggesting that we blow up our roster. In all seriousness, I'm totally kidding, I dont think we actually NEED to make any changes right now. It seems that the overall feeling I get from both Jazz fans and actual NBA experts is that we have a plethora of big man and that we will need to trade at least one of them to free up some time for our young guys. If that's the case, Jefferson, Milsap, and Okur would be the ones who are in danger of being traded. Milsap would be the likeliest to draw interest due to the fact that he's young, cheap, and still improving as a player. Until Okur shows that he's healthy, his biggest draw would be his expiring contract. Jefferson can still be a solid contributor on an NBA team, but it would take the perfect situation for a team to take a chance on him, especially with his contract. (Rockets maybe?)

At this point, I think the Jazz would also be open to trading Harris, Miles, and Raja as well, or including them in some sort of larger deal is it helped salaries match up.

In my personal opinion, I would love to be able to package Jefferson and Harris for a young pass first point guard. Honestly, Rondo is the first PG that comes to mind when I think of guys who are probably available, but I dont think any mixture of who we have available would get him. Rondo is a great defender, an excellent passer, and crafty enough to score a couple points each game despite his terrible shooting deficiencies. Sadly, I don't even think a Harris, Jefferson, and Memos expiring contract would make the Celtics think twice. We would have to throw in a pick and possibly one of our young guys to make it work. I cant imagine them having any interest in Milsap considering they just picked up Bass. So, this deal would probably never work.

So lets hear it Jazz Nation, who would you like to trade for and how would you do it?
