Hello SLC Dunk! I am VoodooMagic and I am a Wolves fan and regular Canis Hoopus poster. I have kind of a bit over there for proposing a bunch of trade ideas the Wolves should look into and often the response is "why would team x do this?"
So I am running a little experiment to see what the opposing team's fans think about a deal involving the Wolves! This is not meant to be disrespectful to any Jazz player or this isn't me thinking Jazz management or fans are idiots (let's be real, David Kahn is my GM....I can't make fun of anyone for having questionable management)
I am going to attach a poll. Even if you think the trade is so stupid you can't believe it, I would certainly appreciate some statistics to use.
So I will propose a trade. Would the Jazz do this? Would you as a fan do this? I'm going to give you a reason why I think the Jazz would benefit from this, tell me if I am wrong
Wolves: Hayward, Favors, Marvin Williams
Jazz: Pekovic, Kirilenko, Ridnour
Why the Wolves do this: because I probably think Favors has as much potential as you do. Pekovic is a crazy good center but he is also going to get paid like a crazy good center and the rumors are Wolves management aren't willing to give Pek what he is worth.
Why I think the Jazz do this: They get the two best players in the deal in Pek and Kirilenko and a really solid point guard in Ridnour. I think it keeps them in the playoffs this year and it also opens up a Jefferson/Milsap deals.
the big plus in this is Pek is an RFA, meaning if the Jazz or Wolves are willing to pay him he is their's as opposed to Milsap and Jefferson being UFA's.
so what do you say to this trade? Are Hayward and Favors considered off-limits/are they just too much of a decent young core to move when the 5th-7th seed is all that it will get you?
Also I think you should make this deal (but the voting isn't about this deal it's about the one with the Wolves)
Bucks: Milsap, Burks, the worse of the two Jazz picks
Jazz: Illyasova and Brandon Jennings
Thank you in advanced for reading and voting/commenting! Even though we are rivals I always hope for the best for every team (occasionally with the exception of the Lakers)
