The Utah Jazz are coming off one of their best campaigns in franchise history. Yet, as it’s happened before, they fell short of the ultimate goal of winning an NBA championship. This has led to plenty of speculation, including Joe Ingles trade rumors.

Coach Quin Snyder did an outstanding job of making the most of his roster, with the team hanging on to the first-seed in the Western Conference even when Donovan Mitchell fell with an injury towards the final passage of the season.

Then again, and even though they have a strong duo locked in for the future in Mitchell and Rudy Gobert, and after re-signing Mike Conley, it feels like the Jazz could use a couple of new pieces to round up their roster and finally take a step forward.

Joe Ingles trade rumors

Given their salary cap situation after signing Rudy Gay and Hassan Whiteside, the only way they could bring in more help would be via trade, and that means parting ways with Joe Ingles, as much as they’d hate to see him go.

Ingles has been instrumental in the Jazz’s success over the past couple of years, but he’s on an expiring deal worth roughly $13 million, and his versatility and skill set could grant them some nice value in return before risking him walk away for free.


So, without further ado, let’s get into what the Jazz could get for Joe Ingles. These teams have all featured in Joe Ingles trade rumors.


The New York Knicks just made a huge splash by agreeing on terms with Kemba Walker, who’ll make roughly $8 million per year to play in the Madison Square Garden. But that doesn’t mean that they’re done making moves, and adding Joe Ingles would address their need for shooting.

To get this done, the Jazz and Knicks would need help from the Cleveland Cavaliers; who are reportedly shopping Collin Sexton. Sexton is due for a contract extension and the team isn’t sold on him in the backcourt next to Darius Garland, who they see as a franchise cornerstone going forward.

In this scenario proposed by The J Notes, the Knicks would send Kevin Knox, Frank Ntilikina, and a protected first-round pick to the Cavaliers to get Bojan Bogdanovic and Joe Ingles, while the Utah Jazz would get Sexton. The young scoring guard could come off the bench next to Jordan Clarkson and continue to develop his game while Mike Conley runs the show with the first unit. The Cavs would avoid paying Sexton, and the Knicks would get two great shooters.



The Charlotte Hornets have been looking for a starting big man for some time now. They added Mason Plumlee and Kai Jones to try and solve that liability, but they’d be way better off by getting Myles Turner. And wouldn’t it be even better if they could also get Joe Ingles?

8 points 9 seconds proposed this trade in which the Hornets would send PJ Washington to the Indiana Pacers and Gordon Hayward back to the Utah Jazz. The Jazz would also get Justin Holiday from the Pacers and a future second-round pick, while the Pacers would land Bojan Bogdanovic as well.

This way, the Hornets get their big man for the future in Turner and the Pacers finally get them off their books, as they’ve prioritized Domantas Sabonis over him. Hayward would come back home – hoping the fans forgive him – and the Jazz would get another scoring guard/forward in Holiday.


According to Marcus Thompson II of The Athletic, the Golden State Warriors would be interested in making a run at Ingles should he become available. So, even after signing Otto Porter Jr, we should keep an eye on them over the next couple of weeks.

Matching Ingles’ salary would be tricky for the Warriors, so the most likely scenario would involve a sign-and-trade with Kelly Oubre Jr. Oubre wanted to get around $20 million this season but his market isn’t shaping up like that, and now that he doesn’t want to come off the bench behind Klay Thompson, joining the Jazz would make some sense for him.

Ingles would be a perfect fit for Steve Kerr‘s system given his playmaking skills and sharpshooting abilities. Despite his age, he’d be an upgrade over Oubre Jr, while the Jazz would get a younger player that could still end up being a solid rotation piece going forward.
