hold on...working out in my brain if I like this or not
Bargnani & Kleiza for Boozer would probably be the easiest way to do it... though I'm like thead in that I'm not sure how I feel about such a trade.
ESPN Trade Machine: http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=bqbnkv3
2012-13: Bargnani/Kleiza ($14.6M) / Boozer ($15M) = $400,000 additional salary for Toronto (pro-rated for 1/2 season)
2013-14: Bargnani/Kleiza ($15.35M) / Boozer ($15.3M) = $50,000 savings for Toronto
2014-15: Bargnani ($11.5M) / Boozer ($16.8M) = $5.3M additional salary for Toronto

makes 15 million next season 16 the year after that
good rebounder...legit low post threat, strong as an ox.
I officially like it.
it's cool, if the management is willing to go into luxury tax zone then it doesn't really matter (those few millions). And this is upgrade, so we should be happy.

Wow BC wants that 8th seed bad
if boozer stays healthy hes just the type of player we could use hes been having a solid season too...i dont mind it as long as the other pieces we part with are nothing major.. would help solve our post pressence issues on offense
It's a good a move. Way too many perimeter scorers. We're dealing from a position of strength. I'm all for it.
i like Boozer but this IS the same guy who broke his hand tripping over his own gym bag! Id rather take my chances with IF boozer can stay healthy rather then IF bargs can play half decent thats for sure..
maybe we can get Nate Robinson as a throw in.. id take him as a backup PG over JL3 everyday of the week!

Definitely a surprising twist for me, but after the initial reaction of "Oh God his contract is massive!", I actually think it could be a good move, basketball wise.
I kinda like it. But, other than a massive contract and age(31) any other things we should worry about Boozer? Havent really followed his career so i dont know?!
he's almost 32...no thanks. Lts try and build on a core that can contend in 3-5 years
I could poss. see them attaching both kleiza and Anderson with Bargs...I like the deal because as was the same as the Gay trade, we collect the best talent
don't want Booz. brutal contract. only good thing is his and gays contracts line up giving us a ton of money in 3 years while the team can also play at a relatively high level. much prefer ridnour / Williams trade.
Why this? Boozer is SO old he's going to lose it in a year or two, especially since he's on the 11th seed in the East.
I say we make a trade for Luke Ridnour and Derrick Williams for Andrea Bargnani, in my opinion that would be a huge steal for us.
Super super strong! His 18 footer is automatic! Throw it down to him and he can get you a bucket. I would like to know more about his contract. Any players or team option? The only problem I see is him coming from Chicago to Toronto would he still feel motivated?
Anyone think that Bargnani will play really well in Chicago with a coach like Thibs?
