The Ripple Effect of Rudy Gobert Business

It’s been four weeks since the Utah Jazz signed a deal that would send Rudy Gobert to the Minnesota Timberwolves and the effects of that trade are still reverberating throughout the NBA.

It was this move that signaled the intentions of jazz to move in an entirely different direction, possibly a rebuilding, to pave the way for movement in the Western Conference and lead to trade talks involving Donovan Mitchell. But it’s not just jazz that has been changed or influenced by the Gobert deal.

Gobert (Patrick Beverly, Malik Beasley, Jared Vanderbilt, Leandro Bolmaroo, this year’s No. 22 overall pick Walker Kessler, in exchange for four future first-round picks in 2023, 2025 and 2027, saw the Jazz get a top-notch race. Five protected picks in 2029 and pick-swaps with Minnesota in 2026) have stalled leaguewide trade discussions.

The Jazz Front Office deserves a lot of credit for the generosity given to them by the Wolves. But because of the size of the returns for Gobert, the market has set and now the Jazz are demanding a return of similar quality to Mitchell. So the burden of being willing to give up a lot is on the teams hoping to engage in those business discussions.

Still, it’s not just about jazz. It’s been more than four weeks since Kevin Durant requested a trade from the Brooklyn Nets and while it has nothing to do with jazz, Durant’s market value is clearly believed to be higher than Gobert, so it has discovered A team that has a difficult time with proper handling of assets.

These things eventually work themselves out and teams find ways to make things work if they want a player bad enough, whether that means giving up the future to bet on a star player now, or a Involving multiple teams to put together an acceptable package.

But, Mitchell and Durant are high-end, team-changing players, and the movement in the NBA this summer has been quiet as the rest of the league waits to find out where these top names are going to end up. Until those moves are made, the league is in a holding pattern.

How to pass the time in the off season

Now that the jazz season is over, it means I have some time to catch up on the things I love but don’t have enough time for during the NBA season. Here I suggest my latest way to pass the out of season time and take your suggestions too.

Jigsaw puzzles aren’t the only fun activity I took up during the COVID-19 isolation. I’ve been putting together puzzles from before I can remember. My mom and I started doing puzzles together when I was a kid and we always plan some time to sit around a puzzle when I visit her in California.

It’s not just about the activity though. Some of the best conversations I had with my mother happened while we were solving the pieces of the puzzle. Sometimes we’ll listen to an audiobook while we do puzzles, sometimes we’ll listen to a podcast and sometimes we’ll put on one of our favorite movies to play in the background. I also enjoy doing puzzles when I am alone. I find the sorting and sorting cathartic and relaxing.

I have all kinds of opinions on the proper way of puzzles and how things should be sorted and what types of puzzles are better than others (I prefer random cut over ribbon cut, Springbok and Cobble Hill are my favorite brands) but really the right way to puzzle is what makes you happy.

I love to do puzzles and I think you should try it, be it with your kids, with your friends, with your siblings, with your parents or even with yourself Too. And, if you really get into it, search Facebook or other social media platforms for puzzle swap groups in your area, because then the puzzles can be endless.
