Utah Jazz trade Lucas, Thomas and Murphy to Cleveland

The Cleveland Cavaliers have been angling to add star forward Kevin Love alongside LeBron James. And the Utah Jazz may have just helped it happen. Utah on Tuesday shipped John Lucas III, Erik Murphy and Malcolm Thomas — a trio of players with non-guaranteed contracts — to Cleveland in exchange for guard Carrick Felix, a draft pick and cash, according to a league source. Yahoo! Sports was first to report the trade. Felix, a second-round pick out of Arizona State in 2013, saw limited action last y...

The Downbeat #1397 - The Steve Novak Trade, young guards, and who will be rookie of the year

The Utah Jazz made a trade on a holiday, such an amazing stealth move. The other team they traded with isn't even in the country. Talk about maintaining a low key profile. The deal sends over Diante Garrett (who will be waived) for Steve Novak and a future 2nd rounder.

But late last night I actually tried...
