Jazz move Davis to Knicks, look to re-sign Clarkson

The Utah Jazz have an agreement to trade Ed Davis to the New York Knicks, League Sources tell The Athletic.

Per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Utah is working to re-sign Jordan Clarkson and extensions are on the horizon for Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert. The Jazz save $5 million in salary for 2020-2021. The Knicks also get two 2023 second-round picks from Utah to take on the salary.

ANALYSIS: According to Jones, the Jazz moving Davis to New York is a move designed to free up flexibility for roster building going forward, confirming what Wojnarowski is reporting. The veteran big man appeared in just 28 games last year, playing a career-low 10.8 minutes per contest in a reserve role.
