Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune confirmed that the Jazz and Rockets are talking about a Ty Lawson trade.
Other Jazz reporters have weighed in saying that the Jazz passed on Lawson this past summer and that something else would need to be included, and also noted that the salaries don’t match up so the Jazz would have to actually add a player or more. The report is getting reported both locally and nationally so there is substance to it, but we’re not running to go grab Lawson or anything. He’d have to fit in there vs. getting the type of run he got under George Karl’s point guard friendly system when he was a good fantasy asset.
