I think it is a concensus among Jazz fans that our biggest needs are outside shooting and finding a young PG. It seems like there is a lot of momentum behind the Iggy for Big Al idea. However, I've been secretly coveting Jrue Holiday for a while. He shoots 38% from three, can pass and is a peremeter defensive menace. At 21 years old, he'll continue to improve. To me, Holiday is the answer to our search for a PG.
It seems like Philly really wants to unload Brands bad contract. Well, to do that, they'll need to give up an asset...like Holiday. Brand + Holiday = roughly 18 million in salary. We could offer them Harris (decent PG) and Millsap which gets within 1 million in salaries. I know that trading Millsap is heresy, but I think getting Holiday in return is worth giving up Millsap and taking on Brands contract. A starting linup of:
Holiday, Hayward, Carrol/FA, Favors, Big Al with Brand off the bench is pretty good.
Anyways, maybe I'm overvaluing the Millsap and Harris. Anyways, thoughts?
