O’Connor: Jazz ‘Aggressive’ in Trade Talks

With Thursday’s deadline approaching, Jazz general manager Kevin O’Connor admitted the team is “actively looking” at trade scenarios.
“In the job that I have, one of the responsibilities is to improve the team,” O’Connor said. “Now you can’t improve the team without looking to make trades, and that’s what we do. There’s 29 other guys that have the same responsibilities to their teams, and they do the same thing. There’s a lot of conversations.”
O’Connor noted that not much trading has gone on yet around the logjammed NBA. But he likes the Jazz’s “flexibility” approaching this deadline and in the offseason.
“We’re active. We’re listening,” O’Connor said. “We’re aggressive in trying to talk (about) things.”
“It would have to be something long term,” he said.
