Jordan Clarkson trade analysis: Jazz give up on Dante Exum dream to get offensive spark

first_imgCleveland, meanwhile, gets a 2014 lottery pick in Exum, as well as much-needed draft ammunition. This could be the first of several midseason moves for the rebuilding team.MORE: SN’s NBA Athlete of the Decade#Cavs are getting a 2022 second from San Antonio and a 2023 second from Golden State in this Utah deal for Jordan Clarkson, sources say.— Chris Fedor (@ChrisFedor) December 24, 2019It’s only December, but NBA trade season is now officially underway. Here’s an in-depth look at how the Clarkson-for-Exum swap could shake up the Jazz and Cavaliers, as well as other teams in the league.Why did the Jazz want Jordan Clarkson?With Conley injured and no indication of when he will be 100 percent, Utah has reinserted Joe Ingles into its starting lineup. While Ingles is thriving in a distributor role alongside Donovan Mitchell, his previous duties as the team’s most assured bench weapon have been vacated. Enter Clarkson, a combo guard used to handling the ball and leading second units in scoring (14.7 career points per game).Clarkson is not a complete player, and Utah won’t ask him to be one. He is notoriously wobbly on defense and streaky on the perimeter. But the Jazz have a strong group of defenders they’ll deploy in an attempt hide Clarkson from difficult matchups (or at least provide help). His lone objective is to get buckets, something he’s been able to do throughout his six years in the NBA.Rather than wait until next month to add a bench option, the Jazz capitalized on the chance to bring in a known commodity without giving up much 2019-20 value.How might Dante Exum fit into Cleveland’s rebuild?There is a chance that Exum, the oft-injured No. 5 overall pick in the 2014 draft, will not be in Cleveland very long.Around this time last year, the Jazz dealt another prospect, Alec Burks, to the Cavaliers in exchange for Kyle Korver and two second-round picks. Burks, who also struggled to stay healthy in Utah, used his time on the Cavaliers as an audition for playoff contenders, and was subsequently dealt to Sacramento later in the campaign. Should Exum perform well in his new home before the trade deadline, a fringe contender needing a backup point guard may look to buy low on him. He is signed through next season.Cleveland, of course, would love to see Exum develop into its lead guard of the future rather than mere trade bait. Collin Sexton and Darius Garland have not yet proven they are long-term backcourt answers for the Cavaliers, and Exum will get the playing time necessary to try and translate his long frame and basket-attacking instincts into consistent NBA production. The Jazz traded 24-year-old guard Dante Exum and a pair of second-round draft picks to the Cavaliers for veteran bench scorer Jordan Clarkson on Monday, bolstering their depth ahead of a grueling fight for Western Conference playoff seeding.The move comes amid a five-game winning streak that has pushed Utah within a game of the Mavericks for the No. 5 seed. Clarkson should give coach Quin Snyder’s stretched rotation some added life with point guard Mike Conley on the shelf due to a hamstring injury. But similar to Burks, who has carved out a niche as a solid role player for Golden State this year, Exum may no longer possess the ceiling that once made him a high first-round draft pick. The Australia native has not played in more than 42 games since the 2016-17 season, and he averaged just 2.2 points in 11 games for the Jazz this year.Does this mean the Cavaliers will trade Kevin Love soon?While the Cavaliers are reportedly listening to trade offers for Kevin Love, moving Clarkson likely does not impact the decision-making process on their star forward. They have no need to rush what will probably go down as the most important transaction of their rebuild, one that must bring back either lottery draft picks or significant young talent.Still, we can expect Love rumors to grow more intense as the Feb. 6 deadline draws nearer.last_img read more

Report Reply +7 Vote up Vote down Thirsty · 211 weeks ago I really don’t see the type of actions coming out of Wellington like they do where I live in Wichita. Wellington is a community where Wichita is a large city. I live close to Hillside and Grove and there are thousands of African Americans many of whom never received the type of education that students get in a community like Wellington. If peace can be achieved up here I would say Wellington has absolutely nothing to worry about. Not that the police shouldn’t always prepare for the unexpected but the probability of something like that happening down there is exponentially lower than up here.

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments by James Jordan, Sumner Newscow — Mass shootings across the nation, and accusations of police shooting innocent people, makes police officers nervous even in Wellington. There are advantages to small town living, and perhaps the lack of major violence is one of those advantages as shootings and mass demonstrations have not made their way to the city.Tracy HeathPolice Chief Tracy Heath said he believes the police in Wellington have a good relationship with the community, but they are still keeping their eyes open.“You never know,” Heath said. “I hope we never experience anything like that, but it does cause me to evaluate our training, review our equipment, and to remind our officers to always be alert and pay attention to their surroundings.”He believes a lot of misinformation is spread by social media, and feels that is the driving force behind a lot of violence across the nation.He said people are relying on unsubstantiated information that is spread on social media, and they are spreading it themselves, adding to the confusion and misinformation that is out there.Heath said he feels for the people in Minnesota, relatives of the people who were shot, as well as other places. He wishes people would let the justice system work.“People should let these things run through the courts and believe that the right thing will be done. I feel confident in that,” he added.But people are quick to rush to judgment, and if what they see on social media agrees with their ideas, it will encourage them and they will pass that along whether it is true or  not.Heath said Wellington is fortunate. There have been very few protests and certainly no major ones. Heath also said he does not believe there has been an officer shot, or a case where a policeman shot a citizen, in Wellington over his 28 year career with the police department.Anything can happen though, and Heath is quick to say there are no guarantees.“But I love the Wellington community. We have great citizens, and I think we have a good police department. We get along great with the community,” he said.There have been shootings in Wellington’s history. It was once part of the wild west, but it has been a long time.“I hope we never have to deal with that in Wellington,” Heath said. “But society has changed and I think technology has a lot to do with that.”With social media things can spread quickly across the world, and that has had a great influence.He believes people are more willing to challenge police officers than they were several years ago. He added though that in his experience there has not been a lot of problems with that in the city. There are people who don’t agree with what police officers are doing, and they may let that be known, but he said there are few cases of it getting out of hand.“You do occasionally have a citizen who is not respectful, or does not agree with our side in a situation, but that is understandable. There may be some folks who are not pro law enforcement, but I still think we have a good relationship,” he said.Heath said he also believes relations are good with minorities. A small town helps there because there are not as many people to start with. That makes it easier for police to be part of the community and to know more of the community. More people also know police officers individually in a small town, and that helps with relations too.Heath said he wants to have an open door to the community. He welcomes anyone with concerns, or thoughts, about the police to visit him and talk about the issues they have.Follow us on Facebook.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
