What do you guys think about Marvin Williams? He's a good defender and he shoots the ball well enough to space the floor. I would guess that the Jazz would be willing to trade him for a SG because they can slide Hayward to the three and they seem to have soured on Alec Burks.

Why would we want Vasquez or Rivers? Vasquez has looked pretty good for 8 games. I would want to see way more than that before giving up Reke, who at the very least gives us good defense. And Rivers has bust written all over him. I hated him as a player in college, and hate him even more for the NBA. I wouldn't trade anybody we have for him other than Honeycutt.

SAN ANTONIO — Veteran forward Wilson Chandler is working diligently to get back to being Wilson Chandler.
But just 6½ months since his hip surgery, with muscle soreness resurfacing, the Nuggets will likely keep Chandler out of game action until the end of the month.
The 6-foot-8 reserve, a talented defender, had averaged just 6.5 points and 5.0 rebounds for Denver in four games this season (averaging 17.5 minutes).
Chandler will continue to maximize practice time with the Nuggets and work with team trainers and strength coaches to prepare for a return. It's understood a surgery like his usually takes about eight months to fully heal.
The Nuggets' third point guard, Julyan Stone, had hip surgery later in the summer. He likely won't be able to play until January.
Chandler has career averages of 13.7 points and 5.2 rebounds.
I see what you mean about Vasquez. His offensive numbers may fall a little, but his assists won't. I'm sure half or more assists are to Anthony Davis and that kid is ballin' right now.
The question is, can he run the offense here like he is in NOLA??
I don't think New Orleans would make a Vasquez for Evans trade. Vasquez has this season and 2 more seasons at a cheap salary and Evans will probably be making 8+ million next year. I would love to trade Evans for Vasquez. Vasquez has everything I like in a PG and this season he is starting to get the minutes.
Here's an article from Sports Illustrated about the Jazz are going to have trouble keeping all of their big men, because Jefferson and Millsap are both free agents this summer. Here is the passage that caught my eye:
"Here's one man's guess for how this plays out: They trade Jefferson at the deadline only if they receive an explosive perimeter scorer (which is a need) or a dynamic young point guard in return. But the Jazz won't have to make a deal, because their frontcourt depth enables them to survive Jefferson's departure as a free agent while using the cap space created to address needs elsewhere."
I don't think that Jefferson would necessarily be a great fit on Sacramento and I think that we would have problems trying to re-sign him. However, Jefferson does have value around the league. The Jazz would probably be willing to trade Jefferson for Thornton and one of our PGs, which could open up the possibility of a three team trade. A trade like that could definitely net us either a starting PG or SF.
Sounds like trading Isaiah and Tyreke would make sense.

"Vontae Davis looks like Bumgarner of the San Francisco Giants. He's throwing a no hitter out there tonight" - Jon Gruden
I think trading for Jefferson is too dangerous. Other teams know that we will not retain Jefferson for next season, the closer we get too the trade deadline the more other teams will know we are desperate to make a move.
Putting Jefferson next to Boogie would awesome. Move Boogie to PF.
