Trade Al Jefferson for a Young Big

It seems with the Foye signing, we are effectively deep at every position. The weakest spots are maybe PG if Foye is used as a SG or SF if Foye is used as a PG making Burks, Hayward, and Williams the main wings. This is why committing to up to two years of Iguodala may change our cluster and limit Burks and Hayward to open up space for Favors.

So then, we need to trade Al for less talented players. I recommend that we take on a less talented player even if it is a multiyear contract if it nets us a future draft pick BUT BETTER THAN THAT let's trade him for a young prospect that comes off the bench.

Trade 1:

Raps need a SF, Iggy fits the bill, and they have reportedly had interest in him. Ed Davis backs up starters Millsap and Favors. The Landry Fields signing may cut into the cap space to make this work.

Trade 2:

Ekpe Udoh isn't ready to start but has shown promise. Bucks need a replacement after losing Bogut and Sammy D likely won't cut it.

Trade 3:

Houston acquires Al Jefferson if they are not able to land Dwight Howard

Utah receives Patrick Patterson + salary filler

This trade will require Houston to waive S. Livingston and others for cap space

Trade 4:

Cavs acquire Al Jefferson

Jazz receive Tyler Zeller after August when he can be traded

Trade 5:

Jazz get Bismack

Bobcats get Al

It would be good for the Jazz but too rude to Jefferson for me to stomach.

Thoughts on these trades or do you have an idea to open up minutes for our core ?
