What if Odom goes to Miami...

I was wonderin', What if Odom ended up returning to the Heat, would they be willing to give up Beasley for Booze. I don't see Booze going to Miami unless that happens. The Jazz may want salary cap relief, but they are not looking for just a bunch of expiring contracts, so that eliminates Haslem. (Otherwise this trade would have already happened) What do you guys think, would the Heat give up their young star in Beasley for a proven Boozer? Would it make the Heat a better team? Would it help in D-wade's decision to stay or go next year? If the trade did happen this would be the line up:
Chalmers
Wade
Odom
Boozer
Oneal
With Cook and Haslem coming off the bench.

If the team adds Boozer and

If the team adds Boozer and Odom it probably makes the Heat the 4th best team in the East behind; Boston, Cleveland, and Orlando.

Is that a good enough reason to give up Beasley? Honestly I think it all boils down to what Wade wants, if they think this is a good enough roster to keep him happy then yes I think they pull the trigger. However, I think they'd be best to keep Beasley for now.

That ain't gonna happen

That ain't gonna happen Kong47272, It's either Beasley or bust. The Heat don't have anybody else to offer Utah, that would be reasonable. Haslem is old, and isn't nearly what Booze is. The Jazz do not want to be a lottery team again, so Haslem is not going to the Jazz. And O'neal is even older than Haslem, about 2 or 3 years ago O'neal for Boozer would have been reasonable, but now it ain't worth it. Beasley is the only other option, and the last chance Miami has of getting Booze. I think Booze is an upgrade for Beasley, so I think it is well worth it.

Yeah I agree its not going

Yeah I agree its not going to happen without beasley, I was saying that if they did do the trade and gave up Beasley the only reason would be because Wade wanted them to make the trade.

Honestly I think Boozer is too much of an injury risk to sink that much money into.

Not injury risk but D

This year I doubt booze will get injured because it his contract year, so he will play his best ball so he can get more money next year. For him it is all about the money. Unfortunately his Defense never shows up. I'd much more worry about his lack of D, and heart, then the injury risk.

If odom goes to the heat

If odom goes to the heat then i see boozer getting traded for beasley..because the heat have 1 year to convince wade to stay beasly isnt going to do this in 1 year boozer is more of a force at power foward then mike is as of now esspically on the rebounding and boxing out hes stronger and wiser then mike..odom has proven to be effective at both pf and sf plus he has a history with wade and was a big part of a championship winning team.....but hey think of this if it wasnt for shaq and wade beening injured the heat would never have beasley so now wade is back n better then ever so beasly is expendable wade is the main guy ...wade will leave the heat if he sees a better team wanting him...wade will leave the heat if this back fires.... but most important wade a leave the heat if they dont do sumthin...so mike is expendable in keeping a proven franchise player who led his team to a champiosnhip already.... but the signs are pointing to wade wanting a good team he loves teh heat but he will leave if things arent going the way they should..so the heat are fighting to keep wade if they cant keep wade there going to rebuild..atleast they a have a cap room with boozer and wade leaving..and a trading vaule in odom.....so there goal is to keep wade not take the hit n miss rebuilding process{timberwolves}{clippers}{bobcats were building since the franchise started}
