Jul 3 - The Deseret Morning News reports if the Utah Jazz can't find shooting help via free-agency, they may have an alternate route to fill their glaring need. According to the newspaper it's believed Utah has spoken with Golden State about trading for veteran guard Derek Fisher, and a proposal may be on the table.

Anybody know if there's any truth to this rumor...? ( [-o< Please, God, not Boozer...)

That they want Fish?, probably true. I just don't know what they might offer. Maybe in a three team trade...

Or maybe we should do another proposal. Fisher and Murphy for Sloan. :wink:

I checked jazzfanz.com and it seems almost everyone there are adamant about not taking on Fishers contract. I can't see why anyone would really. He'll be okay value for his money next year and maybe the second after that but after that it'll be horrible...

Can't really believe this rumor.

Harpring is a free agent. And I don't want any player they may have not named Kirilenko, Deron Williams or Brewer. So... we'd be better off not trading him, unless they give us their first rounders for the next decade.

Brewer and next year's first rounder... you wouldn't be interested in that?

They won't trade us Brewer alone. Much less with a pick.

And if they were willing, ... I would still ask for Sloan. Seriously.

Looks like its Fisher for Devin Brown, Keith McLeod, and Andre Owens.

We get more of a pass-first backup PG and a couple athletic defensive minded wings (I think that's what they are). I'm hoping that this trade leads up to dumping a long-term contract in Fisher to give us flexibility to trade for a large contract player (Harrington, Chandler?)

I have watched the Jazz play ever since they moved to Utah. This past season, my 3 least favorite Jazz players were Milt Palacio, Devin Brown, and Keith McLeod, in roughly that order. Brown and McLeod couldn't shoot to save their lives, Brown committed defensive gaffe after defensive gaffe, and neither of them did anything to help the Jazz win. Brown seemed to flash a fair amount of potential when he played for the Spurs, so there may be something there, but I grew weary of watching him last season. Thanks for taking both in one trade -- though I have to admit that the length and pricetag of Fisher's contract worries me. The only good thing about Brown, McLeod, and Owens is that they can be dumped at any time.

Owens, by the way, played with a lot of energy, but he shot-puts his jumper and, more often than not, he looked overmatched -- a bit like most NBDL or CBA players under a 10-day contract.

This trade makes no sense even though it's a salary dump or eventually trading for someone like Harrington or resigning space-cadet Pietrus next year.

The W's just lost their best 3pt shooter and free throw shooter and one of their toughest defenders!.

Even though this allows more time for Ellis to get more PT. I just don't know what the hell Mullie has in plan. Should've tried to pry Brewer from the Jazz!.
