08:09 AM ET 08.28 | The Jazz and Spurs may be on the verge of an unconventional trade of sorts. And this particular one wouldn't include any players, draft picks or trade exceptions. Jazz assistant coach Scott Layden has accepted an invitation by Spurs management to interview for the organization's assistant general manager vacancy, according to a source. The meeting was scheduled for Monday night with general manager R.C. Buford and head coach Gregg Popovich in San Antonio, the source said. Spurs ownership will not be in attendance. This San Antonio position opened three weeks ago when the Jazz hired then-Spurs assistant GM Dennis Lindsey to replace Kevin O'Connor as Utah's general manager.

Not a swap. Layden is being considered along with other candidates. It just so happened the Jazz hired Lindsey.

Not that high on Layden. I think he was with the Knicks and let go in 2003 after a number of decisions did not turn out too well.

That's just San Antonio's attempt at dirty talk!

The headline is misleading. I got all excited because I thought that they had uncovered a wife swapping scandal in the NBA.

That typically stays within Utah's borders...

Somehow, I don't think so.
