Heading into year two of the rebuild, nearly everything is on the table for the Utah Jazz as the offseason approaches. And one of the biggest questions for the Jazz revolves around what approach they will take entering the summer.

With cap space, a myriad of future picks, and both young and veteran assets on their roster, the Jazz will have the utmost flexibility. Will they continue the slow burn when it comes to a rebuild? Will they trust the draft and lean on the three first-round picks they have in the 2023 NBA Draft? Will they try to lure a big-name free agent or trade for a big star to try and skip a few steps in the rebuild?

Anything and everything is on the table for the Jazz this summer.

Will the Utah Jazz look to improve the roster via trade this offseason?

If the team is ultimately interested in making a trade to improve the roster, I believe there is one type of player to target. It’s the low-risk, high-reward trade target that could end up being of most value to the Jazz right now.

With that in mind, let’s explore seven low-risk, high-reward trade targets that would make the most sense for the Jazz.

Johnny Davis, Washington Wizards

I’m not sure if the Washington Wizards would be open to trading Johnny Davis, and that could very well be determined by who they end up selecting with their top 10 pick, but perhaps he’s a player that the Jazz could view as a reclamation project.

Davis struggled mightily during his rookie season with the Jazz and has already been tabbed by many as a draft bust. It’s premature, but perhaps the Jazz could take advantage of that and pay a low asking price to try to get him a new start in his career.

Davis is talented. If he wasn’t, he wouldn’t have been a top-10 draft pick. Maybe Utah is a better fit for Davis than Washington is/was.
