Looks like chandler could also be going to the raptors. Calderon and Evans could be going to the cats.

Looks like Al Jefferson is headed to Utah.

From RealGM

The Jazz have taken the lead in their pursuit of trading for Al Jefferson.

Sources told ESPN.com that the Jazz and Timberwolves are engaged in serious discussions on a deal that would slot Jefferson's contract into the $14 million trade exception.

Minnesota wants multiple first round picks and no additional salary in exchange for Jefferson.

The Dallas Mavericks were widely believed to be the most serious suitor for Jefferson in recent days, but the sides have been unable to agree on the terms of a deal.

Unless they plan to get rid of Okur, I don't get it. They already have Millsap there, they don't need Al... although he's a good fit for their style, and would be an improvement over Okur for sure...

btw, don't know if it's been posted, but the Heat got one of their key role players back by signing Udonis Haslem to a 5 years, $20 million contract. Big move for the Heat franchise in order to surround their big three with some help...

I'm guessing this would move Okur to the bench ... he's a bum anyways ...

PG Williams
SG Wes Matthews
SF Gordon Hayward
PF Millsap
C Jefferson


Not a bad lineup

With that said... if they trade for Al and add all that salary, I don't see them matching Wes Matthews offer sheet from the Blazers.

I also think it's strange they want AJeff with Okur still there. They really should trade Okur for some salary relief or more of a defender and rebounder to come off the bench. They will really just have a logjam at the PF/C spots again as they've had the last four years

Don't even say such thing. I don't even want to imagine Okur in royal blue and gold.

They're beating themselves over the head because they lost Boozer and gave up Brewer for money. That upset Deron Williams. So they're basically trying to make him happy.

* The Jefferson deal is done. Jazz get him for two future first rounders, using a TE to absorb his contract.

* After Haslem and Mike Miller, the Heat have added another name to their roster... Ilgauskas. Or, in the words of Herb Rudoy, they have "agreed to agree" to a two year deal.

Matt Steinmetz wrote:A trade exception is basically a salary slot for a player who does not exist. In short, it’s a tool that adds some flexibility to potential trades. The Warriors will have one year to use it before it expires, but they are not likely to use it immediately.

It’s more likely that if they use it, they’ll use it in February, near the trade deadline, or during next year’s NBA draft.
