SALT LAKE CITY -- So what do Jazz fans think about the Deron Williams trade? Dan Jones and Associates conducted a flash poll for KSL and the Deseret News Wednesday night to find out.

The results show 70 percent of Utahns say the Jazz made the right choice in dealing Deron to the New Jersey Nets, while 17 percent say it wasn't the right choice.

Sixty-one percent say small markets like Utah can compete against larger market teams for star players; 33 percent say the Jazz can't keep star players from heading to brighter lights and bigger cities.

Sixty-four percent of those polled think the Williams trade was related to longtime coach Jerry Sloan's resignation, while 29 percent say it wasn't a factor.

KSL's Rod Zundel talked with Jerry Sloan Wednesday, who was at his farm in southern Illinois. His only comment was, "Go Jazz."
