    Getting Rondo would be huge, particularly because he is developing his outside shot more (though he is still has limited range, only 3 of 15 from deep this season).

    The main issue with sending Harris and a Jazz big (other than a young player, who I really hope stay on the team for the long run) is money. Rondo's contract is near equal that of Harris', but there is not way Boston would trade 1 for 1 and understandably so. Throwing in someone like Big Al (it would be weird seeing him go back to Boston) causes a problem because his contract is so big that it then becomes very hard to match.

    Here is a possible scenario (http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=6vsdumq) involving Rondo, Alle, and O'Neal from Boston and Jefferson, Harris, and Bell from Utah. This is definitely Jazz-focused though and I doubt Boston would be interested.

    To give someone else credit where it is due, Ross Lambert posted an interesting four team trade after this article I wrote (http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1059925-utah-jazz-add-forward-demarre-carroll-sign-of-a-trade-on-the-horizon) involving the Jazz, Lakers, Rockets, and 76ers. It is also favorable for the Jazz, but much more evenly distributed and a possibility.

    The Jazz definitely need a different PG and another player with range, if it happens to be the same person that is just a bonus (like Augustine, 37% career three point shooter). Other than Augustine there really isn't anyone else on the Bobcats that I think the Jazz would be terribly interested in. I hate to say the Jazz need to wait for the draft, but that may be the only route if no team wants to take Harris alone.
