Report: Spurs Leaders To Trade For Al Jefferson
The word on the street has been that the Utah Jazz definitely will trade either Al Jefferson or Paul Millsap before the trade deadline.
Both players are in the final year of their deals, and neither may return at the end of the season. Pro Basketball Talk via Chris Sheridan is reporting that San Antonio Spurs, hell-bent on making a championship run, are the frontrunners to land Jefferson.
The San Antonio Spurs are the front-runners to land Al Jefferson in a trade with the Utah Jazz – and they are frontrunners like Secretariat was in the 1973 Belmont Stakes….
“Those teams are practically incestuous, they are on such good terms internally,” one NBA source told me Wednesday.
With young bigs like Enes Kanter and Derrick Favors on the roster the Jazz can afford the move.
