This week, Austin Horton and Andy Larsen talk about the Richard Jefferson for Andrew Bynum discussions, as reported by ESPN’s Marc Stein. Why does the move make sense for both sides? Would the Jazz be losing anything on the court by losing Jefferson? Why would the Cavs do this deal? What would this proposed trade say about the relationship between the coaching staff and the front office? Finally, should either team demand sweetener in the deal? Then, we congratulate Trey Burke on his Rookie of the Month award, the first Jazzman since Karl Malone to be so honored. How should Jazz fans weigh that award compared to his 39% shooting? Finally, we talk a little bit about Ty Corbin. Does he have the best interests of the Jazz long term in mind, or is he coaching for his next contract? All that and more on this week’s Saturday Show!

    I am all for the deal to bring in Bynum, but why should we wave him? Why not re-trade him to a team whom they can wave him? Say Jefferson for Bynum/2nd rounder. Then trade Bynum to Denver for Miller/NY 1st rounder? Denver wants to get rid of him, can dump salary this year, and be off the hook for Millers 2014/15 salary, Jazz can get an actually good backup PG (sorry JL3 & Diante) with experience who will be there next year too (when they make the playoff…maybe), at a reasonable salary, then they have Cav’s 2nd rounder, and NY’s 1st rounder.

      LOL no team is giving up anything for Bynum let a alone a 1st round pick. He has publicly said he doesnt even like playing basketball.

    This also opens up time for Rush, Evans, Burkes, and Williams to get more playing time for possible deadline deals. Say, Burkes to Atlanta for Brooklyn’s 1st rounder?
