EVERY TRADE WE WILL SEE THIS SEASON: TRADE 8 (TRADE DEADLINE)
BROOKLYN NETS GET: Alec Burks, 2019 Utah Jazz Second Round Draft Pick and 2020 Utah Jazz Second Round Draft Pick
UTAH JAZZ GET: DeMarre Carroll
The Brooklyn Nets are rebuilding so taking on an expiring contract of a player worse than the one they send out and getting some picks to do so is a good idea. DeMarre Carroll provides a skill set that most teams crave, but given that the Nets won’t take on long-term salary, this likely maximizes his return
The Utah Jazz do not seem to value second round picks that highly. They have would prefer a quality veteran like Carroll right now than two second round picks later. Carroll would be a good fit on their team and be a solid contributor in their quest to compete atop the Western Conference.
