2. Utah Jazz

Over the past couple of years, the Utah Jazz have made it a point to take on random, talented players and stockpile potential assets in hopes of putting a decent team on the floor.

They did it with John Collins, they did it with Collin Sexton, and now, they could have the chance to do it with Miles Bridges if they felt like competing for a postseason spot next year.

Utah could roll out a lineup that includes Keyonte George, Sexton, Lauri Markkanen, and Bridges. That’s not a bad place to start at for a rebuilding team.

Plus, if the Jazz can help him improve his value even more, then they could just end up trading him in the next couple of seasons.

3. Memphis Grizzlies

If the Memphis Grizzlies were to take Miles Bridges from the Charlotte Hornets, it would have to be a sign-and-trade, but there is a world where a deal like this could make sense.

Bridges could slot into their starting lineup next to Ja Morant, Desmond Bane, Jaren Jackson Jr, and perhaps rookie big man Zach Edey. That would be a nice five to roll out with.

At 26 years old, Bridges would fit in well with the timeline of their current core, and Memphis could send back some assets in the deal to make the money work.
