Best & Worst Trade Destinations For Jazz Star Rudy Gobert

The Utah Jazz season has ended in NBA postseason disaster once again. After a 98-96 Game 6 loss, the Jazz once again suffer a first-round exit, calling their roster into question. Is it time for Utah to make a drastic move to escape their annual postseason rut?

Defensive anchor Rudy Gobert has received a lot of criticism in each of the Utah Jazz’s playoff collapses.

Typically, teams eliminate Utah by going small, forcing Gobert to try to be two places at once to guard the perimeter and the rim. As a result, Utah seems to concede dumbfounding amounts of open three-pointers every playoffs.

Many are calling for an end to the Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell era in Utah. Whether the franchise takes action in trading one or both of their stars remains to be seen.

Both players are extremely talented and would generate interest from teams all over the league. Rudy Gobert is practically a defense to himself and can thrive in a limited offensive role.

Let’s take a look at which teams would be the best and worst trade destinations for Utah Jazz Star Rudy Gobert.
