This Jazz-Raptors Trade Features Rudy Gobert To Toronto

Rudy Gobert, Utah Jazz, Toronto Raptors, NBA Trade Rumors
NBA Analysis Network

The Utah Jazz is limping toward the postseason. With just four games left in the NBA regular season, Utah has lost six of its last seven games and sits at 46-32. This recent slide and an early exit in the playoffs could lead to some big changes within the organization.

The relationship between Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert has always been rocky. This could be the offseason that sees one of the two stars be traded. If the front office decides to pull the trigger, it is likely that Gobert is out.

The NBA is a guard-driven league and while Gobert is highly valued, it is hard to find guards like Mitchell. Gobert is a three-time Defensive Player of the Year who could be in line for his fourth honor this season. He has three years and $123 million left on his contract.

The market for Gobert will be hot if he is made available this offseason and the Toronto Raptors are early suitors for the big man. The Raptors have struggled defensively on the inside and this is the main attraction for Gobert.

Gobert has plenty of money left on his contract and a third team could eventually get involved in the deal. If it is a two-team deal, here is what it might look like between the Raptors and Jazz.
