Sam Smith's latest blog backs up the yahoo twitter saying there is nothing to the Boozer to the Bulls rumor.
But before I get to that, I guess I have to deal with this trade story that was making the rounds in Chicago and the NBA Thursday of a three-way deal involving the Bulls, Trailblazers and Jazz with Carlos Boozer going to the Bulls, Kirk Hinrich to the Trailblazers and Tyrus Thomas to the Jazz.
Am I being too subtle here?
His view wouldn't surprise me. However, there's definitely been a lot of smoke surrounding the Boozer to the Bulls issue. It's hard for me to imagine that the talks haven't been raised somewhere. Though, it only takes Utah calling the Bulls and saying "Will you give us Tyrus for Boozer" and Chicago saying "No." for their to be talks.
He also discusses our rookies at great length praising them both. Gibson and Johnson are working out against summer league guys, so I'm glad they look good because if they looked bad that'd be awfully troubling. Johnson's conditioning was raised as an issue which is one of the key fears with him as he supposedly gained 12lbs of fat after his college season ended prior to the measurement process when he should be preparing as hard as he can for the most important interviews of his life.
We'll see how the rest of the summer goes, I'm not worried about Johnson's conditioning/weight yet, but it's clearly something to watch going forward.
