Spurs rumors: San Antonio ‘frontrunners’ to land Al Jefferson

The San Antonio Spurs are significant “frontrunners” to land Al Jefferson in a trade with the Utah Jazz, according to Chris Sheridan.

Here is the latest they are telling me: The San Antonio Spurs are the front-runners to land Al Jefferson in a trade with the Utah Jazz – and they are frontrunners like Secretariat was in the 1973 Belmont Stakes.

Sheridan notes that the Spurs and Jazz are on “such good terms internally” that they appear to be a natural fit to make a trade.

Of course, Utah isn’t willing to give up Jefferson for nothing, but he is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. Meanwhile, No. 3 overall pick Enes Kanter appears ready to step into Jefferson’s role.

The Jazz also need a point guard and the Spurs have two behind veteran Tony Parker; Patty Mills and Nando de Colo. Sheridan notes that Utah could ask for Tiago Splitter back from San Antonio as a potential backup for Kanter.
