The Utah Jazz made another move that show they are planning to try and re-sign Jordan Clarkson, this time in the form of sending Ed Davis and two future draft picks to the New York Knicks.
The Jazz save $5M in salary for 2020-2021. Utah is working to re-sign Jordan Clarkson and extensions are on the horizon for Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert. Knicks get the two 2023 second-round picks to take on the salary. https://t.co/pZTs4OmRE0— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) November 19, 2020
The Jazz did not have hardly any wiggle room at all on the roster this upcoming season, and this helps free some of that to try and keep Clarkson around, as well as being able to extend Mitchell (already agreed) and Gobert later on.
We’re seeing the Walt Perrin connection in New York already, with the draft pick swap last night, and this trade news today. It’s only a matter of time before the Jazz send Donovan Mitchell to the big apple. (so so so so kidding omg can you even imagine).
