Nets Carlos Boozer is telling confidants hes going to the Nets or Pistons

Quote:
Carlos Boozer is telling confidants hes going to the Nets or Pistons, Peter Vecsey reports. Boozer, a 6′10″ All-Star and Olympic Gold Medalist, visited New jersey with his agent on May 8. He has a year and $12.3 million left on his Jazz contract but can opt out by June 30 or work out an extension, making for an ideal sign-and-trade scenario. Boozer averaged 20.6 ppg and 13.2 rpg last year but missed 45 games.

If he goes to NJ without NJ giving much up(which they shouldnt given his situation), ORL better watch out for them next year. Harris VC Boozer and Lopez? Wow. And Rod Thorn as the man in charge to shore up the restof the holes? Yikes.

aren't "confidants" people you tell things because you trust they will keep it to themselves?

im pretty sure they would have to give up something considerable, and im pretty sure lopez would be someone the jazz would want back, i mean if there are reports of boozer for Bosh then its surely going to take something significant for new jersey to get him as other teams are also probably looking to get him too, im guessing yi, lopez, and somesome to make contracts match?

I just witnessed Utah committing highway robbery. The Jazz are a championship team if that trade goes down.

Theres 0 chance the Nets trade Lopez for anyone who isnt considered untradeable to their team. Why would Thorn trade a potentially great center for a power forward whos team knows they have to trade him at this point because they know he isnt coming back and thus his value is at an all time low?

Theres no way NJ would have to give up Harris or Lopez or even VC(if they dont want to) to get Boozer, and the Boozer for Bosh speculation is just trash. Theyre 2 completely opposite situations for the time being and their values arent even close. I think the nets would just have to offer something like Yi and a 1st rd pick or two and then even out the salaries with expiring deals. If they wanted to that is. I think they may just prefer the 2010 cap space+ Harris+Lopez, and why wouldnt they>?

Peter Vecsey is probably the most unreliable sports writer in the world when it comes to rumors, he basically makes shit up to get readership all the time. 75% of the dumb rumors that come out like "Bargnani being traded to Dallas???" are from him

Oh, oh, what about Bargnani being traded for Richard Jefferson? I think that one came out of the same toilet.

Yep. "Peter Vescey reports" is pretty much a punchline at this point.
