The Utah Jazz have plenty of intriguing trade targets for the Philadelphia 76ers.

In case you haven’t heard, the Utah Jazz are approaching an impasse as a franchise moving forward; they can either move forward with their current collection of players, using the assets they procured from the Rudy Gobert trade to further fortify their roster and take a run at the Western Conference with a brand new, first-year head coach or… they can blow it all up and start over.

Are the prospects of trading away fan favorites to undergo a ground-up rebuild a risky endeavor? You bet, but hey, sometimes you just have to trust your evaluations, trust your ability to pick good players, and trust the process as it plays out.

Sidebar: Goodness, does that make Gobert the Jazz’s version of Jrue Holiday?

So naturally, if the Jazz do decide to blow things up, the obvious next domino to fall has to be Donovan Mitchell, the team’s three-time All-Star guard, right? I mean, he has the most trade value, plays a position of need across the NBA, and, with five years of experience as the face of a franchise, should be able to sell a few jerseys in his new home too.

Whoa, whoa, whoa, hold on, pal; yes, the Jazz will likely flip Mitchell somewhere else this offseason, but that doesn’t mean he’s the only player on the roster who could be on the move. While Mitchell likely isn’t a worthy trade target for the Philadelphia 76ers – read more about that here – these three players very much do fit the bill and likely fall into Daryl Morey’s price range too.
