One of the bigger headlines concerning the Utah Jazz this season was their potential trade options for Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson, who both have expiring contracts at the end of this season.
With Millsap rejecting a contract extension before the season started, and Jefferson potentially garnering a large contract in the offseason, it's unlikely that the Jazz want to keep them if the price is too high.
They are both borderline All-Star-caliber players, but they haven't proved that they could lead a team into the playoffs. Since Deron Williams was jettisoned from Utah, the two big men have led the team to only one playoff appearance, where they got swept by the San Antonio Spurs in four lopsided contests.
The fact that the Jazz opted to hold on to Millsap and Jefferson past the trade deadline indicated that they still had faith in their current team, even though it didn't work out for them at the end. Both of those players will be valuable assets on other teams who need to fill a void at the power forward or center positions, and it's difficult imagining them remaining in Salt Lake City if a better offer is available.
