dead horse...or not

Strange as this may sound, I wonder if Devin Harris to the Blazers could happen.

Utah has two picks in this draft, and the mocks that I have seen show them picking a pg-type at either spot (3 or 12).

If they aren't sold on Harris, and are willing to make room for the new guy, perhaps a Andre Miller/filler type trade could work.  Andre can hold down the fort this year (or get a short extension) while the new guy grows up.  Andre played his college ball in Utah and his salary/production might look good to the Jazz.

Now Harris is interesting but probably not perfect.  He can be a more efficient scorer than Miller, but he is probably not or never will be the pure floor general.  Harris is a better 3-ball shooter than Dre...but not by much.  He is younger than Dre but rarely plays even 70 games a season due to injury.  He can be a better defender, but only if he really tries.

Maybe a slight upgrade or an even split, the team shouldn't break the bank, Miller and AJohnson or Babbitt is about all I would want to see moved, maybe throw in a draft pick.  Heck, maybe the Jazz would want nothing to do with Portland after the last few years of RFA deals between the two teams.

 

Just a thought
