Hm... I wonder how much we can get for Bojan and Ingles. For Favors we will need to attach a 1st probably.
I think the right team will find value in Favs.
I just don't see it. A team may value what Favors has to offer, but not enough to trade something of real value to bring him in. Guys like Favors get signed to 1 year deals between every 4-6 million every off-season. Some team would have to be really enamored with him.
I really have a hard time trying to figure out what kind of value Bogey & or Ingles has in the trade market. They certainly would have interest, but who could we get back that would actually make the Jazz better based on they lose from trading them?
I've thrown it out there before, and am warming up to the idea even more myself since then- Bogey and #30 for Kuzma, McKennie and #22.
Kuzma was on the rise before AD came along, and he has better defense and athletism and size than Bogey. You'll probably lose some shooting, but hopefully the defense will offset and perhaps Kuzma could surprise on offense too. Bogey is also getting old.
With McKinnie, you either build depth or have the flexibility of unloading Oni or Thomas. Since all of them are NG, you could theoretically dump them all and I believe be under the luxury tax (until Conley is resigned) and have some flexiblity to sign other free agents in the BAE to MLE level.
#30 is going to be a decent pick this year, #22 gets you into a typical late lottery selection most years, IMO.
Lakers get the outside shooting they need and someone on the timeline of their win now mode.
Not sure that Ingles gets you more than he costs the Jazz. I would keep him, nice to have his skills.
