Jazz Willing To Take Step Back Next Season For Better 2014 NBA Draft Pick

The Utah Jazz remain in the playoff picture and were engaged in trade talks involving Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap, but multiple sources say that general manager Dennis Lindsey expressed a willingness to take a step back next season to get a better pick in the strong 2014 NBA Draft.

The Jazz casually discussed a Millsap for Eric Bledsoe trade, but are comfortable letting both he and Jefferson depart via free agency without compensation.

The Jazz could have dealt Millsap for a high first round pick in 2012, but would have been required to take back a bad contract.
