Jazz fans have spoken.
In less than 24 hours, 14 of them would kick this idea to the curb... while a mere 4 would take it. But don't take my word for it. Have some quotes:

In all seriousness, I wouldn't do this deal if I owned the Jazz. But I would also not keep AK around if I was going to keep Sloan (which I wouldn't).
Also, Foyle sucks, but not as badly as Collins.

If (note: not advocating an AK trade in anyway) AK is ever traded it better be to the east.

AK has had a terrible year, that doesn't mean we are ready to send him off somewhere. For one thing, he's our only front court player who plays defense, and he's the teams only shot blocker. We wouldn't move him for anything less than Jason Richardson and a 1st round pick. Now you can laugh us out of the building.

Foyle's contract is horrible and the Jazz wouldn't want to replace one bad contract with another. AK would be fantastic on the Warriors and the Jazz will want more back than Pietrius and a worthless pick (the Jazz are incredibly deep so late first rounders aren't valuable).
I'm not a big fan of J-Rich personally and I don't think he would do well in our system which stifles creative scoring 2 guards. I actually do like Pietrius but if the Jazz are going to give up their only shot-blocker then they would have to get Biedrins back. Also they would want cap relief because this trade doesn't help from a financial standpoint.

Back when he was in France, he could hardly enonciate two correct French sentences in a row, so what are we gonna do about him when Sloan explains the "system" in English ?? I have nothing against him as a player, but as a human being he's an idiot. If you must choose a french player, go with Diawara (Denver), Petro (Seattle) or Gelabale (Seattle), but not him, please. Pleaaaaaaaaaaase !!!
Yep. They sound THRILLED with the idea.
