  • Boozer's Opt Out Quote
    July 18, 2009 1:42 p.m.

    "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.

  • Only Option: Boozer to Heat!

    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. lol

    Lopez was impressive in the rookie campaign, agreed. Don't see em lettin him go, unfortunately.

    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 soon.

  • Haslem for Boozer

    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.
