Report: Utah Jazz willing to trade Devin Harris

No real surprise here, but keep your eye on Devin Harris as a guy who could get traded.

Harris is struggling and while he still the starting point guard for the Jazz he is not the future and it’s no shock the Jazz would be willing to move the point guard they got back from New Jersey in the Deron Williams trade. Marc Stein of ESPN tweeted this:

Been hearing reliable rumblings since trip to Reno for D-League Showcase that Jazz have made it known Devin Harris is available via trade

Not exactly leaping onto a limb to suggest Harris’ TNT performance against his old friends from Dallas won’t have phones buzzing in the SLC…. Yet I’m told Jazz will keep shopping him and they’ll eventually find taker for Devin. PG is only 28 and has just one year left at $8.5M

Harris is not cheap — he is making $9.3 million this year plus he has the additional year. He is averaging 8.1 points per game on 35 percent shooting. His game has fallen a long way from the guy who had people thinking the Nets got the best end of the Jason Kidd deal with Dallas.

But he can be yours, and you know some GM thinks a change of scenery will do him good.

    Lakers could use a defensive point guard like harris, not sure what they would have to give up for him but if it’s basically nothing then I’d like them to go for it. They saved about $7 million this year by replacing odom with mcroberts, it would be nice if they could actually improve their team with the saved money.

      Agreed…the Lakers could definitely use him if the price isn’t too steep, player-wise.

    To the Knicks for Toney Douglas. Change of scenery for both players.

    I think that in the right offense Devin can still perform. The inside-out style of the Jazz has never really been Devin’s strength.

    he is a chance for the lakers to get a decent PG he dosent fit in the low post offense of the jazz or the knicks or the heat but the lakers have the best chance just Walton,blake and 2nd round picks
