View Full Version : Spurs eye Al Jefferson

I've read on several websites that the Spurs really like Al Jefferson and that they would love to pair him with Duncan, just like they once paired Duncan with Robinson.

The Jazz will face some decisions soon with all their bigs (Al Jeff, Millsap, Favors, Kanter) and they probably can't afford to keep all 4.

This would be such a typical Spurs move if it happened.

I haven't seen anything about this from any credible sources. Might make sense, and cause the Jazz could use shooters which we have.

But I don't know there's any "real" truth to this. However, I could be wrong. Spurs seem to make deals that no one hears about till it goes down.

Read this about the celtics too. Al said Boston is his number 2 choice behind staying with the Jazz. Would take a lot though, Avery Bradley, Bass, 2 first...just to start, might have to part with Sullinger as well, and hes been great.

Would be a fantastic pick up for the Spurs, they always get the most out of their players.

It wouldn't take anything as Jefferson is a free agent at season's end.

Jazz can get more than Green, a bad player, and a late draft pick.

It would have to be something like Jackson + 1 of Neal/Joepsh + Blair/Bonner + 1rst. for it to work cap wise and im not even sure Jazz would do that.

If I was Utah I would be willing to trade Al Jefferson for Blair, Pop, and SA's scouting team and GM. ;-)

'Parting,' 'possibly'? You make it sound as if this would be a good deal for Utah. The Jazz would be idiots to accept this. They can get so much more elsewhere.

11-19-2012, 02:04 PM
It will have to be through a trade. The jazz will have the most cap room this summer so if they really like him, they can keep him easily and trade him later. I don't see why the spurs would want him because he can't defend the pick and roll at all. His offense has really gone down this season also.

futureman
11-19-2012, 02:07 PM
Green would be a sweetener because Dennis Lindsey who is now the Jazz GM, was the guy who discovered Green and convinced Buford to sign him.

The spurs can think whatever they want of Leonard. To get an Allstar caliber big man in his prime will cost them a guy like a Leonard who has nice upside but really is nothing more than Danny Granger 2.0. Spurs have absolutely nothing else to offer short of maybe Tony Parker.

Leonard has the potential to be a superstar. The Spurs wont make a deal involving Manu,Leonard,Parker, or Duncan. so if the Jazz ask for them they would likely wait and make a run at Jefferson/Bynum/Millsap during FA.

Spurs would more likely have to add splitter than blair

splitter + joseph + green + 1st rounders

even that is not really enough but jazz needs to make a deal rather than lose him for nothing in FA

If they kept their core 4 and Al Jeff I would take the Spurs pretty seriously

Leonard will and should never be more than the #3 scoring option on a playoff team.

Right now? Probably. But they have high hopes for him, and he's going to surprise a lot of people if he hasn't already.

Who can the Spurs offer at other positions? Their biggest need is SF and the Spurs would have to get rid of Kawhi for that.

Yea like I said I haven't seen any reports other than forum chatter suggesting a deal between the 2 made sense.

I could see Jefferson coming the off-season just cause he's got great admiration of the Spurs and TD, that I could see him wanting to pair up with him.

Other than that, as far as I've seen there's no serious indications that this is something the Spurs want to do now.

kobe4thewinbang
11-19-2012, 03:51 PM
I don't think this will happen. Jefferson has said he wants to play in Boston, which means he might not resign in SA. Also, Spurs don't really have a lot to give up. Their nature is to be a cohesive unit. They have their Leonards, Greens, Jacksons, Splitters, along with their big 3. Unless Jazz just want SOMETHING (De Colo, Patty Mills, draft picks, idk?) back since Jefferson is going to walk next summer, I don't see this deal happening without disrupting SA's well oiled machine.

I'm not so sure about that. What do you think they could get, referring to "so much more"? I could be wrong, but I don't think Al will command all that much attention.

I made an association in 2k with the Spurs like 3 weeks ago and traded Manu, Blair and 2 firsts for Al.

Don't think it would happen. Jazz would probably want Leonard or no deal and I can't see the Spurs trading Leonard for anything but an elite or near elite talent.

They better not give up Kawhi. He is going to be a star with DPOY candidate every year written on him.

Splitter, Green, Mills/Neal and picks would be the offer if I had to guess.

Most spurs fan want another big next to Duncan and Splitter is what he is a good/great back up C.

Jefferson and Raja Bell for say Ginobili, Neal, and Green . The spurs need to trade someone with some money on their deal, and that seems like Jackson- which is not a Jazz type player, or Ginobili. I think the Jazz could really use Ginobili right now.

I dunno how great he will be, but Pop already came out and said Leonard is his future all star. Hes essentially Pop's project/kid.

there are no links. just someone who wants to give weight to their opinions by alluding to some mysterious link in la-la land.

i hope the jazz don't trade with SA, unless SA gets raped. they're too good to allow that to happen, so the jazz should look elsewhere to trade big al, even if kawhi is included.

ManRam
11-19-2012, 07:34 PM
Why are you all proposing low ball trades. Utah probably needs to move someone, and Al is the most likely, but they aren't gonna give him away for nothing.

Blair and Green are just role players, and their first round pick has very little value.

If Leonard is off the table, I don't see how they come up with an offer worth the Jazz's time of day. Adding more and more role players to the equation doesn't make a deal better either.

11-19-2012, 08:03 PM

I say neal, mills & first and second round remember if they are gonna lose him . they get cheap contracts plus something instead letting him walk. You wouldn't want Jackson heavy contract or if there was another exspiring contract. Pop definetly get the best out of players look at Danny Green who would ever thought? Tim Duncan needs some help plus he can play know his game !

Jazz would get better offers than that, though. Neal and Mills aren't great players and the picks wouldn't be that terrific.

Splitter IS a good player. Nothing special just a good player.

And Pop is playing with what he has. BTW, a lot of teams are playing small ball except a handful of teams. It's what the league is coming to. (Miami just won it all playing small ball.)

Most Spurs fans know we need a defensive minded big when TD goes to the bench as numbers indicate. I trust the FO to figure something out this yr.

11-19-2012, 08:38 PM
I think I expected too much of Splitter. He's a very solid player but not star material. But he does his job.

11-19-2012, 09:17 PM
i don't get this. the only reason any of you have said the jazz 'need' to trade al is because 4 bigs supposedly can't co-exist. to remedy this, some of you are suggesting sending splitter in return? really? what has the jazz done to make you hate us so? damn... how the hell will the jazz get better by replacing jefferson with splitter? it's not like kanter is threatening al's job security and favors is lacking offensively. what do the jazz have to gain by trading their most reliable offensive player with a bevvy of role players? even the leonard suggestion smells bad. a 2nd year player, streak shooter at best, on a team full of streak shooters...

take these weak trade ideas to the bobcats. mj will eat them all up.

Spurs might try now that S-Jackson is injured (or can you not trade an injured player?), but I honestly think Utah could get a better deal than anything SA could offer, even though teams might not leap because of Jefferson's remarks to join Boston in the off-season. Who wants a player that's just going to leave? It's not the same as Dwight Howard, because LA has a whole season with him first.

They can trade him to 28 other teams. And I'm sure somebody has a better deal to offer for a very good 27 year old big.
