But in the last week, there haven’t been many more significant stories in the league than the massive trade market surrounding Utah Jazz star Lauri Markkanen. The outstanding seven-foot player has apparently received offers from other teams, even though the Jazz consider him to be their most valuable asset.

Markkanen is reportedly being pursued by a number of prominent teams, including the Miami Heat, Golden State Warriors, and Sacramento Kings.

However, a shocking new update on Lauri Markkanen’s trade situation crushed whatever expectations those teams and their supporters still harbored of pulling off a blockbuster trade for him.

The forward enjoys playing in Utah, according to Jones, and the team has no immediate plans to move him. Furthermore, Jones recently stated, “Markkanen might be more valuable to the Jazz than the rest of the league, even if the Jazz can extract a big offer and a ton of assets for him.”

According to reports, interested teams are not making players that would help the Jazz make a turnaround in exchange for the “pick heavy” offers that have been made thus far.
