With Utah owner Greg Miller tweeting that he has approved a roster move, and reports that the Jazz are closing in on a deal, Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports tweets that a deal between the Wolves and Jazz is close, and the Dallas Mavericks appear to be out of the discussion.
The Jazz are “close” to acquiring Al Jefferson from Wolves, a source told Yahoo! Sports. Another source said Mavs not in the running.
Information is beginning to leak, and it sounds as if the Wolves will receive a trade exception and a first-round draft pick previously owned by the Memphis Grizzlies. Whether or not the Wolves will receive any players or additional assets still isn’t clear.
