When training camp opened Saturday, coach Jerry Sloan made it known he had not yet decided if incumbent Carlos Boozer or backup Paul Millsap will start the 2009-10 NBA season at power forward for the Jazz. It was news to Boozer. "I feel like I'm the starter," the two-time NBA All-Star said Sunday, before the Jazz open their second day of two-a-days. "I think I've earned that. That's the only role I've been in my whole career."
Anybody think that has any possibility or is it wishful thinking?
I would consider: http://games.espn.go.com/nba/tradeMa...radeId=y9q44so (assuming we got some sort of extension, if even for only another year or two so we have time to assess UPS' value and possible replacement-ability. And yes, I know how Boozer is with promises :facepalm:)

Both are wishful thinking. Booz is an expiring and Utah is hurting for capspace over the next year or two...so I doubt they take any salary back for him unless it's a no brainer.
