In response to hedleylamarr's comment:
Any trade to upgrade this team, IMO, will have to include Bradley. I do not want to trade Sully, although Melo I'd be okay with. Sully to CLE is very intriguing, but I don't want to do it.
How about Green, Bradley and Lee for Millsap and Marvin Williams?
Green and Lee could start for Utah..........we start Millsap ( a good rebounder) and have Williams sub for Pierce...................maybe move Bass in a separate deal?
Its a pretty big shake-up and I think throwing in Bradley is too much to give in my opinion.
Millsap is a FA and if he leaves that lets them extend Jefferson and go with the frontcourt of Jefferson, Kanter and Favors so I can see them parting with him.
Green is the same age and remarkably similar talent as Williams so it is a lateral move there for both teams, although Green still has slightly more upside as he's spent less years in the league, has been given less of a shotto show his stuff at SF and has the body to be a better defender.
The Jazz have a hard time keeping players in Utah b/c of the cold and the country club moron atmosphere. Green and Lee's contracts could appeal to them b/c those guys are not only still just entering their prime, but they are signed at reasonable money for 3 more years after this. Williams is just 1 more year and Millsap, as said, a FA.
Well, I like the trade for a couple of reasons. First, our expectations for Jeff Green appear to be through the roof. (some of us, anyway) We would NOT have the same expectations for Marvin Williams. He would be PP's backup, period! Similarly with Millsap, he is a very good rebounder, who would help KG, and who would know his role. As you say, it's a lot of lateral stuff, but adding Bradley to the mix would solidify the bench of Barbosa, Terry, Williams, Millsap and Wilcox. Or Sully off the bench and start Milsap is goo, too!
