"I'm opting out. No matter what, I'm going to get a raise regardless," Boozer
told ESPN.com. "I am going to opt out, I don't see why I wouldn't, I think it's
a very good business decision for me and my family, but I'd also like to see
what happens with the Jazz and stay here." As moronic as it sounded
at the, he sounds like an even bigger idiot now. Good luck on that raise,
Carlos! Hahahahahaha! In touch with reality much?Tyrus Thomas
would be interesting. He has athleticism and defensive ability Boozer, Millsap,
Koufos, and Okur do not have. He is not the offensive player Boozer is, but the
Jazz are a good offensive team already. They need help on the defensive end,
and Thomas would provide that.Hinrich would be interesting as well.
Could he play the Hornacek role alongside D Will at times? Similar skill set.
Maybe play Brewer more at the three?I can't imagine the Bulls would
let Thomas, Hinrich go after already losing Ben Gordon to Detroit. That would
not seem like a good offseason to me.
I know that Boozer's first option is to play for the heat so the only option is
to keep him or trade him to Miami. It could be a 3 way trade with Chicago or
Portland. I was on Boozer's bandwagon but it looks like he wants to leave so
lets get Kirk Heinrich and Tyrus Thomas. Let Chicago get Beasley and another
player from Miami. I don't know much about Udonis Haslem but he's only 6'-8"
and doubt he can make up for it like Milsap (with the wingspan). I wouldn't
make the trade unless we get some quality players in return because Boozer is
one of the top 5 power forwards out there; he's just had injury issues and has
said the wrong things.
David Lee might not be better than Millsap, so he is nowhere near Boozer.
Carrying a bad team? Why, that's not "carrying" at all. lolLopez was
impressive in the rookie campaign, agreed. Don't see em lettin him go,
David Lee may be better than Boozer and cheaper. Lee does not have an injury
history, is younger, has carried a bad team, put up good numbers before the run
and run and maybe will play defense. That last part about defense is actually a
question. Lee could be the Boozer replacement that is needed. Cost
is a big factor but this could be a smart move. The Jazz also should
look at Lopez of NJ. He is very young but he can play and has a year of
experience. He is tall. Okur could be moved to PF in necessary. Lopez would be
cheap. Boozer is not going to hurt the Jazz playing for NJ any time
sounds like one sided wishful thinking by Miami. I also do not see them getting
Odom but who knows. The Jazz would be doing Miami and Boozer a favor but
shafting themselves and the fans with this trade. This is Miami PR.
are almost 15 million in salary and I do not see that much production per minute
with either. Maybe they defend but they are not CHI best players.
