Interesting article from Chris Broussard:
Having lost 13 straight games, the perimeter-heavy Detroit Pistons would like to get their hands on Carlos Boozer. A Boozer-for-Rip Hamilton trade works, but Utah doesn't want to take back the three years, $38 million remaining on Hamilton's contract, even though he'd made a sweet backcourt mate for Deron Williams.
Boozer for Tayshaun Prince also works financially, but Prince has one more season after this one at $11 million, and the Jazz aren't looking to add salary for next season.
Utah coach Jerry Sloan wants to keep Boozer, who will be a free agent next summer, for the rest of the season, and perhaps beyond. To that end, the Jazz are shopping Andrei Kirilenko with all their might. But good luck with that one. Kirilenko won't have any takers until next season when he's in the last year of his deal.
Not a big fan of the Booze-cruise, mainly because I know he's going to want a lot of money this offseason, and also as you can tell in my other posts, I'm in full tank mode and this would probably make us better.
I wonder if something like Tay/Rip for Boozer/Kirlenko, and get a third team to take on Rip or Tay and send Utah some expiring contracts might work.
