Oh my, hope it's not true. I lost all respect for Boozer when he tried spray-on hair.

him and andrea have a similar length in contract...2 years remaining after this season. AB's contract is slightly cheaper..around 5m. Boozer is 31..turning 32 this November. He averages 19ppg and 10rpg this January. It seems like BC really wants to get into the playoffs...or save his job. Boozer isn't known for defense...so low post threat and veteran presence is what he will bring...

Lowry
DD
Gay
Boozer
Amir

I thought I would never say this but NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Having watched Boozer for yrs he is a stat padder who never shows up in the crunch.Why take on more salary for this shlub. Al Jefferson would help the club.

There has to be better out there. Amnesty the Italian if nothing else pops...

just because he is from alaska, i would say go for it.
he is a 16/10 type of pf, not so bad for us. but his contract his big for waht he bring.
if it was Noah, i would say yes with great energy !

Im still on Paul Millsap club...but knowing BC he probably talked to Utah about him and big Al but they're asking for too much. Just look at what Spurs would need to give up to get Jefferson...emerging Tiago, Patty Mills and Sjax. We can't offer something like that...all we have is...Bargnani! Although apparently spurs backed down...

Al Jefferson trade rumors: Utah Jazz, San Antonio Spurs trade chatter continues - National Fantasy Basketball | Examiner.com

We are one piece away to being a playoff team...please make the right decision BC!

I rather Amare...Boozer has a low motor,Stoudemire just has poor chemistry with Carmelo Anthony. Since 2005 Amare has been all NBA 1st or 2nd team every year except 3(2006,2009,2012).

Noah is worth more than half of this team. legit all star center with elite D and some skills on offense. there's only a few of those.

Boozer is kind of yuck. But then you consider that his salary is about the same as Bargs+Fields. And he's been healthier and better than Bargs lately.

So if it's Bargs+Fields, yes please. It's just trading bad contracts for another bad contract but a better player.

PS: I guess this rumor is a good reality check amid all those Bargnani for Millsap or Granger or Josh Smith or Pekovic or Derrick Favors or Ilyasova trade ideas.

tbh, I say we give up on making the playoffs and let the young guys play, JV and Ross. The only trade we should do now is to shed AB's contract...get a couple of picks..a prospect...cash considerations...etc. Then explore our options in free agency...get a good PF/C...have a full training camp...get the chemistry going and go for playoffs next year!

Who should we get?...

Do you think Boozer is worth an expiring contract+ a couple picks? The Bulls were rumored that they want to amnesty him this year. Which makes me think that he's probably not worth that much. So, is Bargs?

Bargnani, Anderson, Lucas

for

Boozer, Hinrich


Lowry/Hinrich
Derozan/Ross
Gay/Fields/Kleiza
Boozer/Amir/Acy
Valanciunas/Amir/Gray


I don't think the salaries are even close to matching though

I'd rather have Josh Smith, hes been in a winning system for a long time... he knows how to win. Boozer has too but Smith is the better player... especially for our system. Hes a great defender and runs the floor well, him and Jonas at the front court would be good.
