Moses Moody - Somewhat no-brainer

If you had told Golden State Warriors fans before the season that they would be behind the Jazz in the standings on trade deadline day, would any of them have believed you? The Dubs are struggling mightily, and some of their players might be available for less than they would be if Golden State were in the top five or six in the conference.

One player Utah might want to keep an eye out for is Moses Moody. A steady young guard, Moody does not have elite athleticism or elite shot-creating abilities, but he makes up for it with solid shooting prowess and good decision-making.

Those qualities could make him an attractive option for the Jazz. Should he be moved, Moody would bring with him legitimate championship experience, having been to the NBA pinnacle in his age 19 season and picking up the habits of championship players like Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green along the way.

With all that being said, there remain better options than Moses on the trade market. But if Utah were to seek him out in a potential trade deadline deal, all signs point to him becoming at the very least a solid role player in his NBA career.
