    This makes a lot of sense actually. Clear Ariza, Brewer off the payroll for Gay. Kick the tires on him on the team for a playoff run. Throw a max at Gordon if he doesn't take it resign Gay.

    The only reason I'd want Gay is if you want to tank the season, miss the playoffs and get high pick.

    Losing Ariza+ getting Gay = losing season.

    I feel like we overvalue ariza and the kings over value rudy gay but I think rudy gay would be a great get mind as well do this trade and see how it goes than just try to give up ariza for a 2nd round draft during the summer trying to get cap space if a star sees james can play with rudy amd make him better they might be even more intrigued but that's alot of ifs

    Not sure the Jazz make the playoffs... but assuming they do, why would he go to Houston? Because Harden & Hayward >>> Hayward. I don't think it is any guarantee he leaves the Jazz, but there are other teams he would help make better than the Jazz.

    Please... Morey doesnt even have the sense to get MDA to stop playing Brewer who shouldnt still be here int he first. I lost all confidence in Morey I dont think he can get the job done anymore.

    It's a sure upgrade, getting him at his peek, but not quite enough to move the needle. Has he made the all star team yet? He's kinda like a nice 3rd wheel, like Schempf or Hornacek, but not quite a second wheel.

    This is 'meh' to me. I actually really like Hayward's game, but to me he's a more polished Parsons with better scoring ability (better D too). Now that's not a bad thing at all, because Parsons was great with us and Hayward would make this team a lot better, but he's no 2nd star either.

    Still, it would be a very very solid team.

    Hayward would be a huge score and would absolutely turn this team into a juggernaut.

    Still, seems farfetched to pry him away from the Jizz.

    It's a win if we sign Hayward, keep Ariza, and lose Brewer. you can't say we don't improve. literally replacing brew with Hayward. It may not be Paul George or whatever, but it's anot improvement and I'll always take improvements.

    Really? I'm thinking this team might be two Haywards away from being a juggernaut.

    Definitely a solid piece you can't pass on, but I don't think we're set to contend with

    Capela
    Anderson
    Hayward/Ariza
    Gordon/Beverley
    Harden

    Not true contenders certainly, but we could surprise people.

    Now If you add Gordon Hayward and Demarcus Cousins, now we are talking contender.

    Gordon Haywood is a pretty good #2

    On the Jazz he's overmatched as a #1, but in the right role here he would be fantastic.

    So what would be the plan? Play Dekker primarily at the four, Hayward would start at three with Ariza off the bench? , Bev-KJ-Ariza-Dekker-Nene. If they're hitting shots it could work...

    Another option would be to trade for him in season. Would only happen if they suffer a significant injury and are concerned about losing him in the offseason. With Ariza's contract, we may be uniquely positioned to close a deal.

    I agree that we shouldn't dismiss that he's already tried to leave Utah once. It may have been business related and things may have changed since then, but it's possible he wanted out.
