SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Jazz offseason has already been one of drastic change with Quin Snyder stepping down and now there are trade rumors regarding Rudy Gobert.

The most prominent team involved is reportedly the Atlanta Hawks which could include some combination of Clint Capela, John Collins, Kevin Huerter, and the No. 16 pick in the upcoming NBA Draft in exchange for the defensive specialist.

It seems clear that the Jazz are planning on keeping Donovan Mitchell – unless a major offer is sent their way – while listening to deals for Gobert.

Other teams of note that have been linked to Gobert are the Chicago Bulls and the Toronto Raptors who are the betting favorite to land the big Frenchman.

The production is there for Gobert as he is now a multi-year All-Star and is averaging well over a double-double and two blocks per game. Yet, there are still some questions about Gobert and his place on the team.

“The reality is this is a guy who averages 15 and 15. That’s what you get out of them,” Kirry said. “He is an insane defender under the hoop and three defensive player of the year awards is nothing to sneeze at.”

“But am I over it too as a fan? Because I think the league has kind of gotten over Rudy Gobert winning the defensive player of the year and the impact doesn’t feel like a defensive player of the year impact when you get exposed and I think Rudy takes too much of the blame when it comes to being exposed on that perimeter defense.”
