Blowing it up at least gives fans false hope...because if you suck you can dream about better days. FWIW....blowing it up does not mean you have to trade Mitchell to be a bad team. He's not what makes the Jazz good. We are already tanking level team if Gobert has an off game. You have to trade Mitchell at some point because he will, but I would not trade him now. This draft is horrible.
Gobert is 2nd in FG% with .698. Are we going to find another player at his position who is available to trade and scores at his percentage, and also is good at defense? Probably not. If you want that player, just keep Gobert. But Adams is 13th in FG% with .594, which is still very good. Obviously we can't trade one player and get a complete clone of that player back--there will be variations, but .594 FG% is still very good. Or maybe do a trade of Gobert for Jonas Valančiūnas+assets? Maybe that's more palatable? We're obviously not getting a player as good as Gobert back, especially at the C position.
Regarding us being bad with DM and without Gobert--I agree. As I said, we suck without him. But as long as we can keep DM for the length of his next contract, we'll have some time to put together a team around him with a combination of assets from the Gobert trade (hopefully) and a few years in the lottery. Also, whoever we trade, we don't have to ask for picks in this draft.
