What are the trades people are most interested in seeing happen?
I think the head coach needs to be picked first before you worry about trades. There's speculation that Terry Stotts would be strongly considered. I'm not sure that's a good hire, similar to Snyder. He hasn't shown much for playoff winning. That being said, there's a lot of coaches that aren't known for playoff winning.
Stotts had Damian Lillard, maybe there's a play for him in the works, but I doubt that. Lillard is pretty happy in Portland.
Jazz have 3 main weaknesses. Not easily solved, but solveable with a type of player, not necessarily a certain player. The roster, as constructed, was not very versitile. People had roles that were picked specifically for the design. Trouble is, people figued them out pretty easily and the roster couldn't handle the adjustments. I'm not so sure that Quinn wasn't willing to try to react to the adjustments, but he was alsom limited in his ability to adjust because of the roster construction.
Weakness #1- Defense unable to stop the drive on defense. Royce was undersized to guard a 3/4 combo wing guard, Donovan I wonder if he was unwilling or unable, Connoly was too small and slow. Ingles was slow, but he could at least annoy a wingman a bit. Bogey was admirable and actually did a decent job on Luca, but Brunson torched the Jazz at will. A strong wing/combo guard would be a huge help and addition. Bullock from the Mavs would be a good fit.
Weakness #2- Very close to weakness #1. A larger point guard/enforcer. The Jazz absolutely couldn't handle a physical defense that switched, trapped, and bodied up to muck up a game. The team was built for beautiful blender ball, which is beautiful when executed. But when taken away, was dreadful. Jazzmen were wimpy against tougher guards like Brunson (he isn't particularly tall, but he was tough), Dillon Brooks (dude is a chump, but a player like him is much needed). Jazz don't have an enforcer. Ingles was the enforcer. Jazz need an enforcer badly. Draymond Green is a great enforcer.
Weakness #3- A capable small #5. Rudy Gay wasn't it. Paschall might
be it, but not sure. A solid center is still very important in the league, but the ability and versatility is important and the Jazz didn't have that. But refer to #1 and #2 for the biggest issues. Rudy's liability was exposed because of the porous perimiter defense which put him out of position trying to guard multiple positions, which he did admirably. Clippers exposed the Jazz, Mavs exploied the exposure. The corner 3 was available because of terrible perimeter defense.
What I don't know is if the team had it in them, but the chemistry was so off that the team wasn't playing for each other, or they simply couldn't do it. Luca is a generational talent, and a tough assignment. But Dallas beat the Jazz without him because of guard play. It felt like the Jazz weren't willing to into the trenches and play hard nosed ball.
