Here's some perspective on Dante Exum: he's 11 million dollars per year of dead weight, stopping us from being title contenders during the two year window of Gobert's prime and Mitchell's rookie deal.
You got it my man. Any deal the jazz want to do and send out salary... it literally has to be dante. Which is an obvious reason to see dante is the most likely jazz man to move if anything further goes down.
So what asset are you guys willing to give up to move Dante, and who are we bringing in, in return that is a difference maker, and what else do we have to give up to get that difference maker?
Wondering who is on your guys mind and what cost you're willing to pay to move him.
We would have had a lot more flexibility if we just included him as ballast in the Conley trade.
By not moving him, we lost our shot at the full MLE, and a bigger cap space opening. I'd move a first if I had to to get that done. I know how everybody loves their draft picks and wails if we move one, but I think they're overrated. I mean, sometimes they turn into Dante Exum.
