08:26 AM ET 11.28 | Where have Paul Millsap's minutes gone? Asked how strange it felt to be on the bench during the fourth quarter of Monday night's dramatic 105-103 win over Denver, the veteran forward said, "It wasn't strange. It was the second time." Yes, it was. In the Jazz's last two close games -- a 104-102 win over Sacramento on Friday and their come-from-behind victory over the Nuggets -- Millsap has not played down the stretch. ... As the Jazz start a three-game road trip in New Orleans on Wednesday night, coach Tyrone Corbin doesn't seem worried about Millsap's reaction to the situation. "Paul has been a pro the whole time he's been here," he said. "He knows how to respond to it."

QUOTE(#2):

the only story is whether big Al (and milsap) will be moved by the deadline

I doubt it... they should've moved both of these guys last year but knowing both will be free agents at years end is enough to make GM's back away and wait till the offseason..

I don't know......I'd have to agree with jgb on this one.

There're teams out there that would LOVE to get either of those guys now (or soon) for a playoff run.

I can see Jefferson being traded for a young player and a couple of draft picks to a team like Indiana (for instance).

And then......Indiana would be in the better position (financially) to sign him than most other teams for 2013-14 and beyond......
