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.
The 29-year old Harris, whom the Jazz acquired along with Derrick Favors in the Deron Williams trade last season, has struggled this season, averaging just 9.1 points and 4.5 assists per game. It’s hard to imagine that there will be many suitors at the deadline for Harris, considering that his large contract doesn’t expire until the end of next season and that his athleticism was one of the main keys to his success as a young player in Dallas, but you never know what can happen at the deadline. Still, I’d be fairly surprised if Harris doesn’t finish this season in Utah.
