Rumor: David Lee to the Jazz for Boozer

The latest rumor is the Knicks sign and trade David Lee to the Jazz for Carlos Boozer. I think it would be a good deal for both sides. The Knicks get a PF that would fit in will D'Antoni and the Jazz get a hard working SF/PF. http://www.deseretnews.com/article/7...David-Lee.html

Jazz Starting Line-Up(if this trade happens)

PG Deron Williams
SG Ronnie Brewer
SF David Lee
PF Paul Millsap
C Mehmet Okur

or

PG Deron Williams
SG Ronnie Brewer
SF Paul Millsap
PF David Lee
C Mehmet Okur

Knicks Starting Line-Up(if this trade happens and assumming that they get Sessions)

PG Ramon Sessions
SG Larry Hughes
SF Wilson Chandler
PF Carlos Boozer
C Eddy Curry

or

PG Ramon Sessions
SG Larry Hughes
SF Wilson Chandler
PF Carlos Boozer
C Al Harrington

David Lee is no SF

I would be for this trade as a knick fan even though its a gamble with boozer's health. However i can't see the Jazz making moves with the knicks when they have their first round pick. How bad will it look if boozer stays healthy and helps the knicks make the playoffs.

Hope This isn't True

I hope this trade doesn't go through. It seems kind of pointless for Utah to pay all of this money to Lee and Milsapp since both guys are best at the 4 spot. If they want Boozer gone that badly they can do what Indiana did with Tinsley. I guarantee they could get rid of him by the trade deadline to a team making a playoff push.

Boozer is a great gamble for NY, especially if they don't have to give up much. They can see if he's what they want and no matter what he still helps them compete for this year. Worst case is that they lose him at the end of the year and have his money to spend. I guarantee he stays healthy this year and probably puts up big numbers because he wants to get paid.

My opinion of the guy is that if he's your 3rd option then you probably have a championship contending team.

Oh I forgot the Knicks got

Oh I forgot the Knicks got Milicic I was wondering why I had such a hard time finding a starting center on the Knicks. Sessions/Hughes/Chandler/Boozer/Milicic works for me too and Williams/Brewer/Korver/Lee/Okur 6th Man: Millsap works for me.

If the Jazz do that deal, I

If the Jazz do that deal, I would try to move Okur.

How about this?

Okur and AK47 for T-mac and Landry?

probably right

okur is a fan favorite in utah, i don't really see him getting traded unless it really helps utah.

Utah would love david lee,

Utah would love david lee, he isnt the most talented player, but he has a lot of heart and plays really hard. I know a lot of people give him a hard time for his defense but he played all season out of position trying to defend guys a lot bigger than him. I think him in his natural position he would be able to hold his own on defense. I really believe that he would quickly become a fan favorite in Utah like he did in New York, both places seem to really like hard working blue collar guys.

looks good

I do think portland would have to give up more than bayless. maybe outlaw or webster also. probably to utah because utah are giving up 3 former alstars.

i agree portland gives up

i agree portland gives up too little for what new york and utah are giving. If boozer for lee is a fair deal then wilson should get more than just bayless since wilson is more proven.
