The only way j o comes cheaper is if he was cut outright by the pacers. I read a article on inside hoops stating that utah is afraid that the would loose boozer next year and get nothing for him. Why not give them something and hope like hell his family still stays in this area so he would be close to them and we get the homeboy hook up.

Admittedly I've pretty much switched over to all-out Astros baseball mode, especially the wonderful month they've had (Big Puma for NL MVP!!), so maybe I missed something, but are the Jazz shopping Boozer? I can't imagine why they'd do it if they are, but he'd be a phenomenal addition. Also, I'm not familiar with Brand's contract, but if he's not a FA, I'm sure Sterling would be okay with shipping him out for some cheap or expiring contracts and 2nd round draft picks.
I really don't favor one over the other as I think they're both represent our significant missing piece: a offensive post threat that can step out and hit a 12-8 foot jumper and rebound like hell. Actually, now that I think about it, Brand's the one: he's a great shot blocker, has massive wingspan and as "stoney" as Mek's hands are, Brand's are like a catcher's mit. Plus, I think he'd get along slightly better with LB than Boozer.
boozer. better interior scorer, and thats what we need, and he rebounds well. Weve got okafor as the defensive interior, now we need a scorer.
Could you imagine if the balls would have dropped for us, A lineup of
I'd go with Brand.
05-06 he averaged 24.7 and 10. He also had 2.5 blocks.
Brand can score, is a better defender, has more fire and leadership.
Boozer has had more past injury issues than Brand has, which last year was his first injury year.
Brand is a higher risk, but higher reward also.
Good question. Both of this year's picks plus JD? Nothing realistic, but I just don't want to have to suffer 'Crash withdrawal' anytime soon.
