Tyrone Corbin has trust in front office at trade deadline

Tyrone Corbin is in communication every day with the Jazz front office, he said Wednesday, but when it comes to Thursday's trade deadline, he is happy to leave those decisions to Executive Vice President Kevin O'Connor and General Manager Dennis Lindsey.

"I trust our guys," Corbin said. "They do such a great job of understanding where we are, who we are, and getting better. I trust everything they are doing."

Whether that means being active at the deadline, as many observers expect the Jazz will be, or taking this group of players to the end of the season, Corbin is happy to be hands off. Asked how much input he has, Corbin said, "just enough."

The Jazz go into the trade deadline on a relative upswing, including a 115-101 trouncing of Golden State on Tuesday, which may have been the last time this Jazz team played together.

The Jazz have been linked to several deals that would ship out Al Jefferson or Paul Millsap, including speculation involving San Antonio, the Los Angeles Clippers and Phoenix. On Wednesday, ESPN's Chris Broussard reported that the Jazz had talked to Minnesota about a deal involving Millsap and Timberwolves forward Derrick Williams.

On Wednesday, however, Corbin took himself out of any role at the deadline, instead opting to give his full attention to the roster presently assembled.

"There is some thought of what may happen," he said, "but you can't control that. We have to make sure we just work with what we can work with and control what we can control. And working hard to get better every day."
