Luhm says: "Jefferson is a small forward who can also play shooting guard, and the Jazz have plenty of swing-types right now. The only way Utah would make a straight-up Kirilenko for Jefferson deal is if A.K.'s unhappiness with coach Jerry Sloan again became an issue and it started to fracture the team.
"In that scenario, the Jazz would be more likely to trade Kirilenko and getting a player who duplicates the skills of several guys already on the Jazz's roster would not be a deal-breaker."
