The Utah Jazz are looking for a star or two to add to the Utah Jazz this offseason. Danny Ainge went and said as much in his most recent presser, essentially saying they're on the lookout for star players to trade for. This is good news for the Jazz faithful who have had to deal with some not-so-great couple seasons of play from the organization as of late.

The Jazz is not a major free-agent destination but players who wind up here end up loving it here, and it makes sense that the Jazz would be willing to make some major trades to bolster the roster around guys like Lauri Markkanen.

One of the names that has popped up recently has been Trae Young, the point guard for the Atlanta Hawks. His Hawks are done and out of the Play-In Tournament already, and the odds that Young remains on the Hawks past this season aren't great. So much so that the entire NBA community seems to think that the Los Angeles Lakers are going to trade for him.

With what, who knows, but that's the rumor. That seems to be the idea, however, as the Lakers are the favorites to land the Hawks point guard. According to one outfit, the Lakers are the top team, while the Chicago Bulls, Dallas Mavericks, and San Antonio Spurs are the first through fourth most likely teams to land the former All-Star

The Utah Jazz, however, are fifth most likely if these odds are to be believed. This makes total sense, unlike the teams ahead of them, the Jazz have the assets, the money, and the foundation for an incoming Young to make this the best Jazz team possible. Everyone else either lacks cap space, draft capital, or veteran talent to make Young's transition worth it.

The only problem that the Jazz have to deal with is that Young just isn't worth it. He's not the dynamo everyone makes him out to be, with league-average shooting splits, and league-worst defensive capabilities.
