Like many teams, the Utah Jazz are contemplating ways to improve their squad as the March 15 NBA trade deadline approaches, and Devin Harris could be their center piece for a trade. 

The Jazz were in 11th place in the Western Conference during the All-Star break, but only two and a half games out of eighth place. 

Reaching the postseason is a possibility, and landing a talented player before the deadline could give them that strong push toward achieving their goal.

Brian Smith of The Salt Lake Tribune claims,

"The Jazz are open to making a move before the March 15 trade deadline to improve the team, The Salt Lake Tribune has learned, but a deal isn't imminent."

The uncertainty surrounding Harris remains and it's clear that while the Jazz aren't ruling out the possibility of moving him, we could see the trade deadline come and go without a deal coming to fruition.

According to Brian T. Smith of the Salt Lake Tribune, the Jazz are open to dealing Harris, although nothing is set in stone just yet. 

The Jazz remain open to moving starting point guard Devin Harris, league sources said, and reserve small forward C.J. Miles could be made available in the right situation.

But Utah continues to take a long-term approach in building its team after the Deron Williams trade last February, and the Jazz won't make a move simply to pull the trigger.

Harris currently averages nine points and four assists on the season. He's a young point guard, and that is what makes him so enticing. 

Several teams are in need of better depth as they make a run toward the postseason, so don't be surprised if rumors and other reports soon pop up regarding Harris.
