Chris Paul

At 39 years old, Chris Paul's age may not be ideal, but if you look at his efficiency from 2022-2023 to 2023-2024, you can see that Paul still has what it takes to start in the NBA. He's not going to play 70 games anymore, but Paul can still average a double-double a night on the right team.

He can still hit 37% of his three-point shots, and can still average seven assists while sharing the court with Steph Curry, and Draymond Green. When you think about that how could Paul not be the perfect compliment for a team like the Jazz? If they're able to land a complementary player or two for Lauri Markkanen, then Paul would be the perfect player to come in and help balance out the team.

Especially when you realize that the Jazz would have to likely trade Keyonte George to land a major All-Star, then Paul becomes all the more necessary. If, in the unlikely situation where George doesn't get traded, then you give George a great veteran point guard to learn from.

Heck, even if the Jazz trade George but get back another point guard like Trae Young or DeJounte Murray, Paul can still play 25+ minutes as your sixth man. So any way you slice it, Paul has value for the Utah Jazz.
