Veteran scorer Joe Johnson is angling behind the scenes for a trade out of Utah, according to league sources. Will be interesting to see if he becomes a buyout candidate for contenders should no deal materialize before the Feb. 8 trade buzzer

The 36-year-old Johnson is averaging 7.3 points in 22 minutes per game. He signed a two-year deal worth $22 million with the Jazz back in July 2016.
Utah is tenth in the West with a 22-28 record.
