Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is going nowhere

The 2022 offseason was relatively quiet and can be defined by what did not happen. Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving did not find a route out of Brooklyn. DeAndre Ayton’s max offer sheet was matched by Phoenix and he stayed with the Suns. Even Russell Westbrook, the player whose name has been tossed around in trade talks for the last two months has not gone anywhere.

The only notable deals that have occurred are related to the Jazz’s teardown. Rudy Gobert was sent to Minnesota for Malik Beasley, Walker Kessler and a hatful of draft picks. After a protracted saga involving the Knicks, Donovan Mitchell was eventually sent to Cleveland for a haul.
