Quote:
The Utah Jazz have agreed to trade guard Dante Exum and two second-round picks to the Cleveland Cavaliers for guard Jordan Clarkson, league sources told ESPN.

The Jazz are hoping Clarkson can deliver a boost to their bench scoring.


Imo this is a real good trade for the Jazz. Offense is their weakness. It won't put them over the top, but it will make the Western Conference seeding race a little more interesting.

It is good to see JC rebuild his value over the last year...and Exum probably needed some new scenery as well.

What’s worse, being traded to Cleveland or being traded to Utah?

yeah, but my guess this is 6 month stop for JC unless he kills it and they try to keep him. JC's lifestyle probably a better fit in Cleveland. Utah better for career, because he should be back in the playoffs again this year.

Just think that Laker fans were hoping that either of them would be the future of our team.....

Can't believe it took the Jazz this long to realize Dante Exum was never going to pan out.

Realize some of it is injuries, but I still remember the year we got Julius, the entire board was full of "Sexum Exum", as the next Laker great.

Injuries will do that to players. Some of these kids are done before they even get the chance. ESPN did a good article about the injury epidemic in the youth (for once): https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/27125793/these-kids-ticking-bombs-threat-youth-basketball

I think Utah is a good fit for JC, though he'll have his work cut out since they are defense oriented.
