After all, the Jazz do control his rights — and, because he opted in, he no longer has a say in the matter.
As for the Bulls, a three-team deal that would have sent Boozer to Chicago, brought forward Tyrus Thomas to Utah and moved guard Kirk Hinrich from Chicago to Portland broke down late last week.
But the Bulls, who remain interested in moving Hinrich, and Jazz continue to talk.
"Great organization, top-notch from top to bottom," Boozer, speaking to WMVP, said of the Bulls. "They do things very professionally there.
"At the same time, they have a very good group of talent there.
"If I was able to come there," he added, "I'd add a lot, especially in the low post and being a leader as well."
