This intriguing trade idea would send Jazz star Rudy Gobert to the Celtics

The Utah Jazz will soon be headed for a time that will require no shortage of important decisions to be made. Both Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert will soon need a contract extension and the Boston Celtics are positioned well to capitalize.

Something to consider, Gobert will be eligible for a supermax extension that would pay him $247.3 million over five-years. ESPN’s Tim Bontemps reported there is ‘potential uncertainty’ regarding a possible deal.

Bontemps also made it clear that if an extension does not get done, it’s possible the 7-footer becomes available for trade talks.

“If Gobert and the Jazz are unable to agree to an extension, several people said they could see Gobert becoming available in trade talks.”

During a recent article Greg Swartz of Bleacher Report suggested a hypothetical trade involving Gobert that would send him to the Celtics. Boston would send the Jazz a 2020 first-round pick along with Marcus Smart, Robert Williams III, Daniel Theis, and Romeo Langford.

The trade package is centered around the notion that the Jazz would be looking to trade Gobert after failing to agree to a contract extension. That’s important to consider since it impacts the type of compensation Utah likely can command in a trade.

Let’s take a look at the rationale for both the Celtics and Jazz with this particular trade idea.
