Gray should be in this trade?
Are we really going to try and run boozer+amir+gray+jv?
I think this trade starts looking into next season. Lowry, Derozan, Gay, Boozer all under contract for next season, it's likely where things are happening.
The more and more these trades start happening, I wouldn't be unhappy with re-signing BC. He looks to have a plan, because once Gay and Boozer expire, that's A LOT of money opening up. By that time, we'll have had winning experience with Gay, Boozer leading the way for the young group.
With MLSE willing to spend, I don't put cap as an issue anymore. UNLESS, team is trying to get guys from free agency.
Boozer this season without Rose has been awesome. With no one really dominating the ball in Chicago, the ball is getting moved around, and that's where Boozer fits the best. Low post threat, rebounder, not a great defender, but definitely an upgrade to Bargnani in general.
O god noo noo nottt thiss guyyyy!!
we can pick him up from amnesty this offseason if anything :s
Boozer doesn't significantly upgrade this team defensively even if Andrea is the player going the other way. He might not blow rotations or be passive defensively but he's still an average to below average defender.
Bulls want to get rid of him because they don't want to pay that contract. And his contract IS large for a player of his productivity.
What's wrong with ending up like Memphis? Top 4-5 seed in the West no?
Most good teams (OKC, Miami, Memphis, SA) spend money on players that help them win, plain and simple. They don't overpay role players. Booozer is not going to impact winning that much on this Raps team.
I would agree with you that Boozer is better than Andrea but how good is he really and what will his impact be on the floor when it comes to w vs l's?
Most of Chicago's perimeter guys including Deng are volume shooters. Andrea, when motivated, can shoot and he might add another dimension to that team in a specific role. If Thibs can't make him do what is needed, I doubt any coach can.
I feel like Boozer is the sort of player who would complain and hate coming to Toronto... Just a vibe I get from his personality.
