any updated news on carlos boozer
last time i heard the heat was interest in him. but they havent made any offers really for him so as the bulls who so bad need a big man to bang down low. so i was wondering whats the latest on him and do you think he will be traded.
as a slc resident, the local sports reporter have really said nothing after that last heat rumor. A rumor floating around salt lake city is that deron williams is feed up with boozer, Williams lives in slc year round and said he can't belive boozer is going on all these radio stations in chicago and most recently in miami saying he would love to play on thier team. Boozer has dug a hole he will never be able to get out of with the jazz players, organization and fans.
That's interesting, and I don't blame everyone in Utah including hs teammates to be fed up with him. If they really don't get any decent trade offers, then they should just bring him off the bench behind Millsap and not call any plays for him. That would hurt his free agent value next year. I would be pissed at the dude for opting in to the contract because he knew he wasn't gonna get more elsewhere and then immediately looking to be traded.
Utah refused to make a deal with Miami unless Beasley was involved. Miami said they would only pull the trigger on a Beasley-Boozer swap if they managed to get Lamar Odom.
Utah is not interested in trading Boozer for expiring contracts as so many seem to believe. They forget that Booze himself is expiring and also an all-star talent.
Utah has made it clear that without an offer that makes the Jazz better than Boozer will be playing on the team next season. All season if need be. Boozer says he doesn't expect to play in Utah next season but it really isn't his choice. Kevin O'Conner is playing this brilliantly.
I think Boozer will have a ton of value once the trade deadline nears. They just have to keep him healthy. I would never want the guy on my team. He is talented, but I don't sense any sort of loyalty with him. He seems to just be chasing the money. I can understand why he bolted the Cavs for Utah (though it was shady), but him declaring during the season last year that he was going to opt out and then basically deciding he was going to stay because no one was going to pay him just makes me start to wonder about him even more. Now openly pitching himself after he re-signs. That's ridiculous. Utah fans deserve more than that.
Is at the start of the season who starts Milsap or boozer
Millsap has said publicly that he would mind coming off the bench for another season. Obviously the Jazz want to showcase him in his contract/expiring year. His trade value could get higher than Michael Beasley (Pun Intended). Besides this way there is less of a chemistry issue, the Jazz are still looking to win 50-55 wins this season.
