Jordan Clarkson's time on the Utah Jazz may be coming to an end, and we couldn't be more excited about that possibility. The guard has been with the Jazz for the last few seasons ever since the Cleveland Cavaliers blew up their playoff team and shipped a bunch of guys out after LeBron James left. Clarkson ended up in Utah, where he would go on to win the 6th Man of the Year award with the Jazz.

That was when Clarkson was in the right role, doing the things the team needed him to do, but as the years went on and guys like Donovan Mitchell left, the Jazz saw their use of Clarkson increase, until the start of the 2023-2024 season, where Clarkson became a starter. His inconsistent scoring became a nightly issue, as no one knew what to expect from the guard, and without better players being able to cover for him on the nights he was bad, his issues became further spotlighted.

Coupled with a defensive effort that's never truly been there, the Jazz were never able to get things going with him as the team's second-best option. He was playing above his talents, and it showed. Since Clarkson started dealing with injuries, the Jazz are 5-3 and look better on both sides of the court.

So it's not surprising at all to find out that the Jazz have put Clarkson on the trade block. Clarkson joins John Collins as guys on the trade block this season for the Utah Jazz, and with how well the Jazz have been playing without those two in the starting lineup, it's very likely that this becomes an addition-by-subtraction situation.

The Jazz may be able to run around their season without these players holding them back, but even if they don't, the assets they get back will help dull the pain of a lost season.
