NBA Rumors: Jazz to acquire John Wall, Markieff Morris from Wizards in exchange for Derrick Favors, George Hill

By on

John Wall and Markieff Morris play for the Washington Wizards, while Derrick Favors and George Hill are with the Utah Jazz. If these two franchises are unable to have a good start next season, then they might look into trading of two of their key players on their team based on this suggested NBA rumors report.

According to Andrew Lynch of Fox Sports, the Wizards and Jazz might view this formulated trade from ESPN’s NBA trade machine to improve their lineups next season. Lynch reported that Utah could have two more wins than their projected one if Wall and Morris will be traded to them next season.

Andrew added that having Wall and Morris in the stacked lineup of Jazz with Gordon Hayward, Rudy Gobert and Rodney Hood might give the Golden State Warriors a scare when they face each other next season.

It is also worth noting that Wall recently admitted a rift with his Wizards’ teammate, Bradley Beal. If John does not want to be with Bradley anymore, then finding himself to the Jazz might be a good scenario for him.

Meanwhile, the Wizards might be the loser in the trade since they got four losses from their projected wins next season based on Lynch’s result. This is a surprise since Derrick Favors and George Hill are in their lineup already.

Derrick Favors is a huge upgrade over Markieff Morris. Though Hill might not be the best replacement for Wall, he is still capable of being the starting point guard for any NBA team.

This NBA rumors report is just an idea and would not guarantee successful seasons for both teams. But their lineups would actually be good on paper if this deal could be executed.
