One of the reasons we likely wonít see the Jazz make any moves around the deadline is because they are somewhat limited in the moves they can make based on the contractual situations of the players on the current roster.

many expiring deals.

Quote:
Another reason that itís not likely we see a trade of large or semi-large magnitude taking place in Salt Lake City at the deadline is the salary breakdown and longevity the players on Utah currently hold. Other than Ricky Rubio, Thabo Sefolosha, Ekpe Udoh and Isaiah Cousins, every Jazz playerís contract is guaranteed through the 2019-20 season.

Cousins? Favors has team option. and Neto will be unrestricted. I think Niang and O'Neale are non guaranteed.

Quote:
Would Utah make a deal for a player who can help them win both right now and in the future with a lengthy contract with all of those multi-year deals still on the table? I donít think itís likely.

It's not likely because they don't like change

3. Donovan Mitchellís efficiency is trending upwards

that's a reason to trade

Quote:
2. Derrick Favors is too important to the team

Makes too much and plays too little and doesn't fit with Rudy.

Quote:
Put simply, Derrick Favorsí is this teamís starting power forward and its backup center. No other Jazz player can match Favorsí size and ability to soak up minutes at the 5 to give Rudy Gobert a rest.

Udoh is better defensively and makes a lot less money. Bradley needs a shot eventually. 18 million can be spent more wisely

Quote:
Favors is the most obvious candidate to be used for salary-matching purposes in any potential trade the Jazz could explore, but they need more production from their bench and Favors is one of the primary reasons Utahís bench isnít worse than it is.

But they are so deep!

Quote:
Thereís a new rookie this year, but the remainder of the Jazz roster has been a part of the organization for at least a couple of years. Thatís not common in todayís NBA. The Jazz just may be the team to break the mold, and itís the biggest reason they should avoid a move at the trade deadline.

keeping the same roster led them to being mediocre
