Pistons trade

Pistons trade potential 7th pick to the Utah Jazz for there lottery pick and second first Round pick.

This allows the Jazz to potentially get Trey Burke, and then te Pisons could go after high risk high reward guys like Gainis and Rudy Gobert/Steven Adams/Tim Hardaway JR/and maybe Dennis Sherouder(for those of you want them to draft a point gaurd)

This brings some more depth to the pistons with talent, and give the jazz the point gaurd they are looking for. What do you guys think?

Did this actually happen or are you just thinking aloud?

In the NBA, quality beats

In the NBA, quality beats quantity. The Pistons should draft Burke if he is available for them. The Pistons really could use help at every position on the perimeter, so they should just choose the best available perimeter player with their pick. The trade you proposed was one-sided for the Jazz. And I think Burke goes top 5, so the Pistons will need to get a little lucky in the lottery to get him.

Burke to the Pistons would

Burke to the Pistons would just make too much sense.

There is going to be a pretty

There is going to be a pretty quality player there at 7. Bennett, Burke, Oladipo, Bazz, Noel, Porter, McElmore, Len, Zeller are my top 9. AT LEAST three of those guys are going to be there at 7 and that's if nobody else moves up. I don't think the #21 is worth going from 7->14.

If I was the Pistons, I'd

If I was the Pistons, I'd consider this if the Jazz add somebody like Gordon Hayward in that deal. Hayward would fill in nicely and at 14, there is still some solid players available.

I can tell you aren't a Jazz fan.

Ask any jazz fan what their opinion of Hayward is and you will get the same general response the dude to us is an untouchable. If your GM called and asked our GM for Hayward and the 14th pick for the 7th pick he would be laughed at and then hung up on. In fact they would put him on speaker phone so everyone could get a good laugh. Besides we have Burks who can play PG if necessary

Untouchable is the wrong way

Untouchable is the wrong way to describe Hayward. Untouchable is Lebron James, Kevin Durant or Kobe Bryant. If we were to trade him it would have to be for the right price, certainly not a terrible trade like that.

Auto correct

And I was thinking out loud, I didn't realize that I didn't make it clear. And I am not as high on Burke as everyone else just for defensive purposes. I would hate the Pistons drafting Burke. A I don't think anybody that they will need or want be there when they pick. Zeller, Bennett , Burke are players that can be as good or worse than the people I mentioned. It's that kind of draft and the pistons need some future depth more than an average guy. IMO. Especially when next year there will be way more to choose from in the lottery.

As a Jazz fan i would love

As a Jazz fan i would love that trade not including hayward of course. Especially if it happened before the draft lottery and the Jazz had a better chance to move up.
