Veteran point guard Patrick Beverly It was a great summer, engaging in a second casual trade today when he was Lakers got it from Jazzwhich he in turn added as part of his return package Rudy Gobert. Los Angeles Utah alternative sent Taleen Horton Tucker forward Stanley Johnson in exchange.
Beverley already has a total restriction clause in his contract, which states that it cannot be combined (combined) with another player’s contract before September 6 of this year, when the total restriction expires.
Bobby Marks from ESPN (Youtube video link) Explain why Beverley is not affected by the overall restrictions. “Beverly and salary were not combined…no other Utah Jazz player would come out on the deal,” Marks said. “If that’s the case, they’ll have to come out in the first week of September.”
Marks sees 6’4″ Horton Tucker, whom Marks considers primarily a junior striker than a shooting guard, and 6’6″ Johnson, who often played for the Los Angeles forward, as the best players in the bargain, and their athletic merits are worth the risk. Marks also points out that if he can stay healthy, Beverly will be better with L.A. than either Horton Tucker or Johnson has proven.

Rohan Nadkarni from Sports Illustrated He also weighed in with his commercial score column, giving both teams mediocre grades and success.
- Taleen Horton Tucker He’ll get plenty of opportunities to play with the ball in his hands in Utah, which could be the best use of his unique skill set and physical gifts, he sees Sam Vicini from The Athletic. Horton-Tucker was a decent fit in LA where he was three points below average who failed to consistently defend at a high level. As a sports innovator, Horton Tucker has shown flashes of intrigue through his drive-and-kicking style of play. The Jazz will be able to give him more time to develop and improve in his current areas of strength, away from the pressure of winning in Los Angeles.
