The Jazz are involved in trade talks with San Antonio and Minnesota involving Utah's Josh Howard, C.J. Miles and Jamaal Tinsley, according to HoopsWorld's Alex Kennedy.

The reported deal isn't imminent and is only in the exploratory stage.

In return for trading Howard, Miles and Tinsley, the Jazz would reportedly receive San Antonio's Danny Green (7.8 average points) and Minnesota's Wayne Ellington (5.3 points). Other players and draft picks would likely be included, according to Kennedy.

A source close to Howard told The Salt Lake Tribune on Tuesday they were unaware of the reported deal. Multiple sources informed The Tribune on Tuesday the Jazz were actively making and listening to calls, but no deal involving any Utah players was imminent. The NBA trade deadline is 1 p.m. MT Thursday.
