Former Jazz point guard Blake Ahearn is an option for the club's Summer League team, tweets Brian T. Smith of The Salt Lake Tribune. As for the starting one-guard role, the Jazz know that they need a young floor general but are open to sticking with Devin Harris for another year. Utah fears that they will take a step back if they trade Harris because the 2012 draft is light on point guard prospects (via these Twitter links). Here's more on the Jazz and other items from around the Association as we await Game 4 tomorrow night..
- The Jazz have done their homework and are prepared to move up in the draft if there's a deal to be made, Smith tweets. Paul Millsap is one of the club's biggest assets as they face a big decision to make with a possible extension and his long-term future (Twitter link).
- A source told Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun (via Twitter) that the Raptors are far more likely to keep their No. 8 pick than trade it. Moving up also appears to be unlikely.
- Free agent guard Jason Kidd believes that Mavericks teammate Jason Terry deserves the three-year deal that he is seeking, writes Dwain Price of the Star-Telegram. Earlier today, Kidd made his case for joining the Nets while also saying that he would like to return to Dallas.
