Timberwolves Trade Al Jefferson

by

Salt   Lake  City,   UT  (Sports  Network)  -  The  Utah  Jazz  have  acquired
center/forward  Al  Jefferson from the  Minnesota Timberwolves in exchange for
center  Kosta  Koufos, the Memphis  Grizzlies' protected 2011 first-round pick
(obtained  by the Jazz in a previous trade) and an additional future protected
first-round pick.

Jefferson,  who  averaged 17.1 points and  6.9 rebounds last season, fills the
void  created by  Carlos Boozer.  He left  via free  agency to  sign with  the
Chicago Bulls.

"We  are happy  to acquire a young  power player who has developed into one of
the best low post scorers in the league," Utah general manager Kevin  O'Connor
said.  "We  gave up  significant assets  to obtain  Al and  we look forward to
watching him progress with our team."

In  three  seasons with  the Timberwolves (2007-10),  Jefferson started in 208
games  and  averaged 20.1 points,  10.4 rebounds,  1.6 assists and 1.44 blocks
while leading the team in scoring each season.

Originally selected by the Boston Celtics in the first round (15th overall) of
the  2004  NBA Draft,  Jefferson has  averaged 15.3  points, 8.7 rebounds, 1.2
assists and 1.25 blocks in 407 career games (276 starts) over six seasons with
Boston and Minnesota.

Koufos,  originally selected  by the Jazz in the first round (23rd overall) of
the  2008  draft, owns  career averages of  3.3 points and  2.2 rebounds in 48
games (seven starts).
