IT’S OFFICIAL: Utah Jazz lose out on Nikola Mirotic

New, comments

The stretch big man is headed to New Orleans

NBA: Utah Jazz at Chicago Bulls Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

Now the Utah Jazz can say they lost out on the services for the Chicago Bulls’ Nikola Mirotic. The stretch big man is headed to New Orleans according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN for Omer Asik, Tony Allen, and a first round draft pick with minimal protections. New Orleans is also signing Greg Monroe in a move that make you go “huh?”

Sigh ...

The Utah Jazz will now have to find a different route if they are going to find a stretch four who could be paired with Rudy Gobert. This might make Utah’s trade deadline plans turn more long-term focused rather than #playoffpush focused.
