4 Jazz Players Rumored to Be Traded Before Season Opener

What'll the Utah Jazz do with these players who've been linked

Utah Jazz fans finally got some answers on the Donovan Mitchell front, but this doesn’t mean executive Danny Ainge is done dealing before the season opener.

Currently, Utah has 17 rostered players and will need to trim down to 15 before the season starts. What current Jazz vets are most likely to be packing their bags, and who’s staying? 

There have been four Jazz-men linked to different trade rumors. Let’s take a closer look at who could be staying and going. 

Utah Jazz forward Bojan Bogdanovic (44) dunks on a break away in the fourth quarter against the New York Knicks at Vivint Arena.
Utah Jazz guard Mike Conley (11) celebrates in the second half against the Memphis Grizzlies at Vivint Arena.
Utah Jazz forward Rudy Gay (8) shoots over Sacramento Kings guard Davion Mitchell (15) in the third quarter at Vivint Arena.
Utah Jazz guard Jordan Clarkson (00) shoots over Los Angeles Clippers forward Robert Covington (23) in the first half of the game at Crypto.com Arena.

Here’s a player that could go either way.

Jordan Clarkson’s name has been mentioned numerous times as a potential trade piece, but the Jazz might be able to get more for the former sixth man of the year if they wait until the trade deadline. 

Clarkson may start the year in Salt Lake City, but a contender looking to add depth for a playoff run during the season makes a lot of sense. I see Clarkson being on the opening-day Jazz roster.
