The Utah Jazz have made their first move of the season, sending Simone Fontecchio away in a trade that netted them mostly just a second-round pick and some contracts. It was an unimpressive trade, but one that may have given the Jazz the draft capital necessary to pursue upgrades to the bench and the overall defense.

So with that, we came up with a list of five names that would be perfect for the Utah Jazz to go and get to improve their team.

Point Guard - Malcolm Brogdon

The Utah Jazz need help at the point guard spot beyond Kris Dunn. He should absolutely be entrenched in the starting point guard role going forward, and given a new deal eventually, but the Jazz need help at the position beyond him. Keyonte George has flashes of brilliance but he's largely been inconsistent as a scorer while being atrocious as a defender.

Jordan Clarkson is all but unplayable and while he's had spurts of good play, he's largely someone who can't get the job done as needed on a team like the Jazz. Maybe on a team with slightly better talent top to bottom, he won't be as problematic but the Jazz need him to be better than he is and he simply can't be that.

Malcolm Brogdon on the other hand is an all-around good player. While he doesn't do any one thing better than anyone else, he's a good defender, a good scorer, and a good passer. He's not going to be great at any one thing but he'll be good enough that the Jazz will feel his impact from the first day of his arrival on the team. He's the perfect bench player for the squad.
