Bulls looking at Boozer per rumorpress.net

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.

  • T9 first broke the Jalen Rose trade. He also 2 months before it happen said the Bulls were talking Hughes and Gooden for Wallace. Last July he said the Bulls and Kings were talking Miller and Noc and that deal happen 7 months later

    He also said the guy the Bulls were targeting to move up in the draft was James Johnson which Gar Foreman came out and said that was our target if we moved up

    People must understand that not all trade talks end up in a actual trade. Just because he says we're talking to a team does not mean it happens.

  • Didn't upset me at all, I'm just telling you all the things he reported.

    He also reported Kirk/Kaman talks that came out after he said it that the teams have talked.

    He's a credible guy and anyone that has been around RealGM for the past 4 years knows it.

    My reply is if you don't believe him just don't read his info, I'm just sick of people "NEWCOMERS" questioning him
