D'Antoni has a hard on for Jeffries. He's going to use Jeffries as that defensive presence. I don't get why we didn't cut Balkman. He's terrible.

I'd rather keep him, personally. He's the perfect role player to have on a team. He has the ability to defend (still has a ways to go there, though), can shoot the three, is an excellent rebounder, and is a solid passer too. Unless we get another good scoring option we're going to need him in the future as that third player who can give some scoring if Stat or Melo falter in a game.
I like Fields too. But what if we need a Center so bad that we have to make a move? At this point, he's our only tradeable asset, so worst case scenario we move him for one.
But I would prefer to keep him if possible. I can see him being a 14/8/3 a night guy moving forward.
