The Jazz had no intention of keeping Perkins so as they worked on a buyout reports are saying Perkins is still gonna come out of this situation pretty good as he will either sign with the Cavs or Clippers, both of which are legit contenders. Perkins will miss OKC and they will miss him too, but both sides are going to wind up just fine.
