Default Trade idea: Boozer for Kaman

Now that Kaman is becoming more available, what do we think of the trade idea now?

I floated this idea back in July. I think it was deleted in the main forum though.

From the team forums:

If the Jazz don't see Boozer sticking around, and instead opting out at the end of the year to explore greener pastures, this doesn't sound that bad.

My only question is would Okur be able to run the pick-and-roll that is a staple of Sloan's system?

I don't think Utah will make any big changes to their roster as it works now as it is, but I like the trade idea.

Maybe. He will never be able to set a pick like Boozer. But his shot option is better. Not as good at it altogether though.

Isnt Boozer an expiring deal? From the Clipps standpoint, it would be like a 1-year rent. I dont think the Clipps would want to give up Kaman for essentially Boozer for a year. Doubtful Boozer re-signs with them

Depends on how much the Clippers would be willing to pay Boozer if he opted out at the end of the year. If they threw a max- or near-max deal at Boozer, I think he'd at least consider staying

If I knew he would re-sign, then I would probably do the deal bc Camby can fill in nicely at the C spot, but you dont know from Boozer, and you better believe there will be offers thrown at him

Back in the summer I suggested Kaman + Gordon for Boozer... and the Clippers homers told I was crazy, and that Kaman + potential of Gordon was waaay better than Boozer.

I guess we can see who was totally wrong. Now at this point there is no way Utah would trade for Kaman, even when D-Will comes back.

I wouldn't make the trade if I was Utah. If Boozer is going to walk, than just wait a year and try to sign Bosh. Williams and Bosh, not bad.
