Utah is making financial moves
Utah is trying to stay within their financial means and stay competitive at the same time. They traded Ronnie Brewer to Memphis for a future pick. They have depth at that position and can absorb the loss. Brewer is a restricted free agent and Utah may not be able to match any offers. So, they gain a pick for him now. Not bad I guess.
Memphis is trying to make the playoffs now and giving up a future pick for something now makes sense. Brewer will improve them and I think he was worth the first round pick. I don’t know that he gets them there, but he will be better than what they could have drafted for.
