Jabari Parker is available and the Ringer is reporting the Jazz have interest

NBA: Milwaukee Bucks at Utah Jazz Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

According to the Ringer, the Utah Jazz are reported to have interest in Jabari Parker.

Like it says in the article, Derrick Favors can’t be traded until January 15th and so it’s not something that can happen soon even if the Jazz want to trade him.

As is always the case with these types of reports, having interest does not mean the Jazz plan to actually make a move. The Ringer is obviously speculating on Favors being a possible trade piece, but personally I’d be surprised to see the Jazz move Favors for Parker.

Considering that Parker isn’t even in the rotation, and if the Jazz wanted him, they could go after him in free agency after this season if the Bulls don’t pick up his second year option.

Either way, January 15th is looking like a very interesting day for the Utah Jazz.
