On the heels of my morning train ride article, the Bulls are now rumored to be in talks with Utah about Carlos Boozer per rumorpress.net.
Look for the Chicago Bulls to make a strong push for Carlos Boozer. Reports have indicated the Bulls are interested in trading for the Utah Jazz power forward and there is a lot of truth to it. General Manager Gar Forman has already had discussions with the Jazz about sending Boozer to Chicago and talks could heat up even more in the coming weeks. The Bulls are looking to send Tyrus Thomas and most likely Jerome James to the Jazz for Boozer, the problem is the Jazz are talking to several other teams and may wait to find a better deal. Either way, the Bulls will at least make a strong effort at trying to get Boozer in Chicago.
Well if the deal comes down to Tyrus and James for Boozer it seems like it might be a win-win for both sides, assuming that James is medically insured. If not, then it's an awfully dicey move for Utah as they gain relatively little out of the trade unless they're just high on the future of Tyrus.
As stated in my editorial on the topic, Tyrus would be a pretty good fit for Utah paired with Okur. The move wouldn't inhibit the Bulls 2010 plans unless they choose to resign Boozer, and it wouldn't cost them anything significant in terms of assets moving forward as Tyrus doesn't seem to be in the future plans of the organization.
