What is Patrick Beverley’s future with the Utah Jazz?
Patrick Beverley is one of the most polarizing players in the entire NBA today, and when he was traded to the Utah Jazz as part of the Rudy Gobert deal, many expected him to play a important role for this team in the future around Donovan Mitchell. . Last day reports, however, showed the Jazz might be interested in trading custody of the superstar, and that left Beverley in a unique spot with the franchise in Salt Lake City.
If the Jazz wanted to reorganize this roster around Mitchell and run against the top tough dogs in the Western Conference, then Beverley, with his intense defensive attitude and playmaking abilities, would be a big help in that regard, but lately, it looks like Danny Ainge might be planning to burn it all down and start all over again. It doesn’t benefit Beverley in any way, and that’s exactly where the following quote comes from:
At this point in his career, it’s understandable that Beverley doesn’t want to be part of a lengthy rebuild, which the Jazz seem to be heading towards, but if Utah can somehow move Mike Conley’s salary, then the Point guard rotation at Salt Lake City could be a combination of Beverley and Jordan Clarkson. Whatever happens with Donovan Mitchell, it’s safe to say it’s going to rock the entire NBA, but given Beverley’s age and ability to help a competitor, it’s likely that if Mitchell is moved, someone like Pat Bev will also be moved or bought out. .
In recent days there would have been Lakers and Heat interest for the outspoken defensive stud of a point guard, and with it unclear whether the Lakers will land Kyrie Irving or move on to secondary targets yet, the Jazz seem to be in a perpetual waiting game at this point to decide of their future.
So what do you think? Should the Jazz use Beverley as part of a re-tool around Donovan Mitchell? Should the team move him for a draft pick or a promising young player? Who or what team are you thinking of? As always, let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
