i fixed the link
We would not have problems scoring with that trade...
Stuckey / Bynum 6th man
More importantly, I would look forward for Boozer's contract to come off the books for Cap Space in 2010 which we would ultimately use to land a big time FA or through a trade.
I would much rather have Boozer in a contract year than have him just after signing a contract that he isn't completely thrilled about.
NBA Trade Rumor: Rip Hamilton for Carlos Boozer | Dime Magazine (www.dimemag.com) : Daily NBA News, NBA Trades, NBA Rumors, Basketball Videos, Sneakers
Hamilton is on his way out...This is why we signed Deron Washington
Hamilton is all the sudden the oldest player on the team...And the most paid..
This story is picking up a lot of steam. Isn't Boozer above average in pick and roll? The few games that I have seen when Utah was playing he seems to play this very well.
Deron Williams and Boozer make a great pick-and-roll combo....Seems like Boozer does well when he gets multiple isolations and pick-and-roll/pop opportunities
Next season would be a lot more exciting if this trade goes down ..
It would be great to get rid of Rip's contract for an all star big in his last year of contract, but we would still have no center except Kwame, i also don't think CV playing the 3 is a good idea, that's if he would not come of the bench and Tay would still be our staring SF.
Boozer and Ben Gordon would be a muderous combonation on the P&R.
And we get Capp Spayce back after the next season to boot.
Boozer is a very good pick and roll/pop player, in part because of his solid jump shot from the elbow. But do we have a guard capable of running pick and rolls with him? That is the question.
i hate to be negative, but what is the difference between paying ben/charlie and waiting to 2010 for a better crop of free agents and more money. Maybe Joe is foward thinking, but how forward is the question. Is this year suppose to be mediocre as well?
Ben Gordon. I mean seriously, would you give that dude an open look? Boozer, Dyess, CV or whoever is goingto get some nice looks playing P&R with that lil dude.
Very run-of-the-mill trade. Not a statement of aggression and he leaves anyway...proving what?
Better to have Arney check out Brand. With an nodding wink from him, we go after a major talent and the team solidifies around him. Back in the finals within 1-2 years.
This stops the dissolving JD mirage I currently see on exhibition.
There is probably not going to be as many as most think as most players do re-sign with their old teams in spite of all the grandstanding. Secondly who would want to come to a 20-30 win team which is what we would have been going into the season with what we had.
This trade actually works!!!!

3 way deal: Det, Hou, and Utah.
Houston trades Rip for Battier, straight up (Hayes is thrown in as filler and waived). Battier is a great role player and all, but Hou needs some scoring from the SG position something terrible, they're starting Ariza at the SG spot right now. They'll miss Hayes for 30 days, but they'll be aiight.
Utah gets Max (and waives Hayes), so that they can start Milsap at PF, Max would do much better playing under Jerry Sloan. This move will shave Utah $5.1M off their salary cap and save them $10.2M in cash, they are going to lose Booze anyway, might as well get something for him.
Det gets Boozer and Battier, look at this lineup.
PG: Stuckey / Bynum
SG: BenG / Prince
SF: Prince / Battier / Daye
PF: Boozer / Charlie V / Wilcox / JJ / Summers
C: Ben / Kwame / Wilcox.
If all parties were all in for it, would you make this move?
And I would use the season as a big fat audition to determine whether Booze would be re-signed next year.
Couldn't get the link to work, but oh yeah.
Sorry RealGM: Trade Checker
Assuming T-Mac ever gets healthy would have a decent lineup
Brooks(Lowry) / Rip(T-Mac) / T-Mac(Ariza) / Scola (Landry) / Hayes(Yao-eventually)
Right now Utah is about $15M over the lux cap, they need relief bad!!!! Their bankers must be thrilled about this season, next years profits should be enough to cover the interest on their line of credit.
