But that isn’t the case and they are still very open to the idea of trading away even more of their roster.
However, they won’t do it cheaply.
REPORT: The Jazz feel that Bojan Bogdanovic, Jordan Clarkson and Malik Beasley are each worth a 1st-round pick.

That’s a huge asking price for these players and it’s unlikely they will be able to receive such a haul for each individual athlete.
Then again, the Jazz have been really good at making these deals happen.
The Jazz have been playing hardball all summer and it’s been working out for the team.
They have received a slew of players and draft picks for the talent they sent away.
Obviously, they will not stop demanding a lot now.
Will this result in even more draft picks coming to Salt Lake City?
Teams like the Los Angeles Lakers have draft picks but they are very hesitant to part with them.
In fact, the latest reporting says that the Jazz and Lakers have in fact discussed a deal that involved those picks but the two sides couldn’t come together.
The Lakers would love to claim one of the mentioned stars but, right now, they’re not giving up their picks.
However, as the offseason runs out, their tune may soon change.
The regular season is starting in just a few weeks and teams are eager to get their rosters together, even if it means giving away the coveted picks they wanted to retain.
