This one makes a little bit of sense and isn't to far fetched:

Utah gets Kwame Brown, Dorell Wright, Ish Smith, our second draft pick from NJ
We get Al Jefferson.

We get a legit Center and another scoring threat.
They get more cap space ( small market teams don't like to spend on teams not making playoffs). They clear space in front court for Kanter and Favors who are their future players. They get a backup PG, and A decent backup SF.

Their Lineup:
PG - Harris, Ish
SG - Burks, Bell
SF - Gordon, Wright
PF - Milsap, Favors
C - Kanter, Brown

Also they have our first round pick as long as we are not a bottom 7 team.
So they have a vested interest in us doing better.

Our lineup:

PG: Curry, Robinson
SG: Ellis, Rush
SF: Klay, McGuire
PF: Lee, Udoh
C: Jefferson, Beans

Then we have Jenkins, Tyler, and Wright who can be developed for next year.

Again this is probably just a pipe dream. I think they would want a first round pick to make something like this work.

To add on to this, Utah's Harris and Josh Howard just got hurt, so they need some back court help.

Oh and 1 more thing. If they make they playoffs they lose their 1st round pick. So if they do good and we do bad then they don't get any picks in what is suppose to be a very talented draft year. As a GM, if I were them, I would almost want to tank while making sure GSW isn't a bottom 7 so they can have 2 picks.
They could get some nice talent in the draft since they are already in rebuild mode.

I'm all for it. Too bad nobody asks us.

Ish is in a doghouse for some reason, I can;t stand watching Dorell play this year (if you can call that playing). So, the only player that has some value now is Kwame. And I would gladly send him away if we are to get Big Al. We would finally have some post up player on the roster.

Now you got me thinking happy thoughts, and most likely we will continue to suck when it comes to trades.

I am sure the Jazz won't go for this. It takes away their top scorer and rebounder. And they are 5-3, and in a shorter season, that means there is hope for a playoff spot if they stay this way. If they get under .500, maybe, but no way as long as there is a playoff chance.
