Former Jazz’ star Joe Ingles replies to a mother’s tweet, is grateful for all the love he’s getting after being traded to the Blazers
The NBA is the world’s primer basketball league. However, at its core, it’s a big business. There are 30 franchises out there, competing with each other, year after year, to win the title and become the best. Recently, we saw an example at the same, with the trade deadline happening on 10th February.
We saw a lot of trades, including the much anticipated James Harden-Ben Simmons come to fruition. The Utah Jazz traded Joe Ingles to the Portland Trailblazers in a three-team trade.

Having played in Utah for 8 years, Joe was pretty sad about the same.
Today hurts… I knew it was a possibility but didn’t want to believe it, we have been lucky to call this place home for 8 years!
I got a lot more to say, but I’m going to have a beer & relax with some good friends..
Go get a win fellas! I’ll always be watching ❤️

“But Joe Ingles made us win!”: A Twitter user shares her kids’ reaction to the trade
The Joe Ingles trade hit a lot of Jazz fans hard. After his ACL injury, Joe was ruled out for the season. He was then subsequently traded to the Blazers, where he’d be there for the season. A mother shared her children reacting to the trade news.
The kids just got home from their dad’s house and I had to break the bad news about Joe. @Joeingles7 and @RenaeIngles, legit tears were cried. #takenote @utahjazz @JazzNationNews pic.twitter.com/IvQHlaQeHx

As it can be seen, the kids took it pretty hard. Joe saw the clip on Twitter and sent his love to the kids.
Appreciate the love… 😞❤️ https://t.co/IVXLFuw2g2

Ingles has a contract that expires in the upcoming offseason, where he becomes a free agent. It is assumed Joe would make his return to Utah in the summer, but nothing can be said for sure.
