I think the main problem is that AK is a bad fit for us, since we need somebody who can defende 2s and 3s, not 3s and 4s.
I think the possibilty is there, obviously, for a Utah/Marion trade.
If Marion came at around 7.5 million per, it would instantly save them 9 million a season over the next couple. That alone could either bring back Boozer, or at the very least open up the possibilty of their own S&T with him for an upgrade at the 2.
