Lauri Markkanen is performing at his highest level this season and destroying every opponent, demonstrating that they aren't just there to watch who wins. Teams from all around the league are now trying to snag the Finnish player away from Utah, indicating that he has apparently found his place in the globe. Jake Fischer of Yahoo Sports claims that the Jazz rejected an offer from the Atlanta Hawks to trade Lauri Markkanen for John Collins.
The Jazz are interested in Collins, which is intriguing, but they are unwilling to move Markkanen to make that happen. The group is prepared to keep becoming better, but they won't part with their key players. This year, Markkanen is displaying a new side and has established himself as a member of this team. Lauri might emerge as the team's star and the Jazz may surprise everyone by making the playoffs.
