World Wide Wes pushing Chicago to bid on Anthony

Per Yahoo sports:

As trade discussions with the New Jersey Nets stall, the representatives for Carmelo Anthony(notes) are engaging the Chicago Bulls with hopes of pushing them into becoming a serious bidder for the Denver Nuggets star, a league source told Yahoo! Sports.

Anthony has long been enthusiastic about a possible trade to the
Bulls, but Denver and Chicago officials had been previously unable to
come to terms on a deal. Bulls executives John Paxson and Gar Forman
have investigated the possibility of acquiring Anthony, but thus far
haven't been willing to include the one player the Nuggets most covet:
center Joakim Noah(notes).

Nevertheless, William Wesley - Worldwide Wes - is expected to travel
to Chicago for Bulls games on Thursday and Saturday against the Dallas Mavericks and Cleveland Cavaliers, a source said. Wesley unsuccessfully pushed LeBron James(notes)
to sign with the Bulls as a free agent, and now has an interest in
Anthony ending up there. Wesley represents Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau for
CAA.

Despite that Leon Rose is certified as the agent of record for
Anthony, everyone in the NBA knows Wesley is responsible for delivering
the Nuggets star to CAA and is hands-on when trying to push teams into
deals for the agency's clients.

Chicago has wanted the Nuggets to take forward Luol Deng(notes)
as a cornerstone to the deal, but Denver hasn't been interested in
absorbing the three years and $40 million left on his contract after
this season. The Nuggets want an array of young players and picks the
Bulls will have a difficult time providing. Still, Chicago badly needs
another scoring option and Anthony is one of the NBA's elite offensive
players.

Fool me Adrian Wojnarowski...

I'm not buying anything World Wide Wes is selling, of course, I'd love the Bulls to get Anthony, but they don't have a package that comes close to matching what the Nets can do. 

However, the Nets have, reportedly, pulled out of the Carmelo Anthony talks.  I'm not really buying it.  If the Nuggets come back and say "hey wait, we want to get this done", they're going to pick up the phone again.

However, as the trade deadline gets closer, the Nuggets may become more and more desperate.   Desperate enough to take Deng, taj and some picks?   Probably not, but we'll see.

  • Anybody remember who said it would come down to Chicago and New York w/ CHI the favorite?

    NJ has just dropped out of the Melo-sweepstakes.

  • In reply to MrHappy:

    Oh please don't leave us in suspense, tell us who it was that said it!

  • In reply to MrHappy:

    Never mind being able to match the Nets deal, the Bulls can't match the Knicks deal unless they include Noah.

  • In reply to DontLetsStart:

    What are the Knicks presently offering?

  • In reply to MrHappy:

    It will come down to the two teams that he said he would sign the extension with, the Knicks his first choice and the Bulls. Denver will not lose Melo for nothing, should be interesting to see what happens if Denver dont want to deal with the Knicks.

  • In reply to MrHappy:

    1. If Melo comes to the Bulls, Boozer's work is very much reduced as he is not a stretch 4. Does he become more focussed on defense now?
    2. This is probably the agents trying to push the Bulls as soon as they got that text from Billy King that Nets are out of it.

    The only thing I am worried is this might drag on for a month knowing Denver's FO's greed and inexperience and impact the Bulls play.

  • In reply to MrHappy:

    Mr. Nostradamus...did Melo and WWW tell you something about JR Smith and Affalo? Enlighten us..

  • In reply to MrHappy:

    If we're going to talk pure fantasy, I'd try to send Boozer somewhere for Melo rather than Taj/Deng. I like a Melo/Deng/Taj 3/4 rotation a lot more than I like a Melo/Boozer/Scalabrine one.

    If we were actually to make a Melo deal I'd try for Boozer to Indiana, Paul George and Dunleavy's expiring to Denver and Melo to Chicago, with whatever picks. Not sure how interested Indiana is in using Dunleavy to get a player rather than just letting him expire, but they desperately need a decent PF.

  • In reply to DontLetsStart:

    Eh... I don't really like a Melo/Deng/Taj interior rotation at all for your 3/4 spots. I agree though that Boozer loses a lot of value if you have Melo

  • In reply to DougThonus:

    Does Melo then lose a lot of his value by playing with Boozer.

    They seem to be about as incompatible as any 2 forwards could be. The things that they are good at are mostly similar if not identical, they just do it from a different position.

    And their weaknesses are fairly similar also. But this is one of those situations where you take the talent and figure out how to make it work(or if it will work)afterwards.

  • In reply to DougThonus:

    Thats a great point by Shakes to include Boozer instead of Noah in a trade for Melo and include another team to make the deal work if needed!

    I like Boozer, but he is very soft on defense and like the other Chicago team...the Bears...they are both built on defense 1st!
    Deng would be a lot better if not played to death like Thib's likes to do so I see Melo starting at SF and Deng backing up Taj at PF and Melo at SF.
    Sure we pay Deng a ton, but if we can't trade him we should use him as a reserve of 2 positions (SF/PF).

    The corner stone for the Bulls winning and I hope what Reinsdorf is behind is keeping Rose and Noah Bulls for life, but we need a score like Melo so Rose isn't our sole scorer...if we trade Boozer away to get Melo.

    With all this said I'm ok with the team as is if Denver keeps crying for Noah! We see how bad we need Noah in there for his defense, up tempo game, playing with heart etc!
    Sure we paid a lot for Boozer but if we can get Melo and keep Taj and Noah, maybe Deng too then we'd obviously be a favorite to beat anyone!

    I know it's a pipe dream! :-)

  • In reply to MrHappy:

    You're wrong. Chicago is not the favorite. Melo only wants NY and that makes them the favorite.

  • In reply to MrHappy:

    If Melo is thinking Chicago, he's thinking championship.

    The Knicks and Nets will not contend if they acquire Melo, with all the assets they have to give up. I think it's possible the Bulls can have a team take Deng for expiring contracts and young talent. Deng's value is high because of his great play thus far.

    Melo should know that if he joins forces with Rose, Noah, and Boozer, the Heatles would be pissing in their pants.

  • In reply to MrHappy:

    Mr Happy, may all your dreams come true.

  • In reply to MrHappy:

    p.s. Melo to the Net's. Quote me.

  • In reply to MrHappy:

    I'll be glad when this carmelo drama is done..so we can go ahead and trade for the sg we need to add to an already good team. Forget melo. We just need a shooter that spaces the floor and keeps defenses honest and we're a certified contender. The bulls dont need any more superstar scoring with rose and boozer. The bulls just need to keep playing championship level defense and for noah to get back healthy.

  • In reply to logikal77:

    We have the floor spacer if KK was our starting SG and Bogans wasn't black mailing Thibs's about his hooker pictures! :-)

    I think in the end Melo will go to the Nets if not the Knicks.
    We can hopefully then trade with the Nuggets for their scraps...their bottleneck of SGs (Affalo, Morrow, Smith) :-)

  • Think outside the box.

    It doesn't have to be a two-team deal.

  • In reply to MrHappy:

    By box, you mean your head.

  • I would prefer the Bulls not to get another forward who is not defensive minded.....I'd like them to keep Luol and the rest of the team together and then next summer find a 2 guard or two....that wil be the best plan for the next few years.

  • In reply to drob:

    so find us 2 guard. Do think it's easy ?? bulls were purchasing smith, mayo and jackson but nothing happenned.

    The bulls will never have another great opportunity to seriously improve the team, carmelo is the last chance. Things gonna be hard against Heat the next years if bulls don't get Melo. He is not that bad in defense. He plays hard, that is enough for thibodeau to turn him into a good defender.
    C'mon, this is obvious, everybody here, knows that we need a strong offensive player other than boozer and rose. We defends very well but not attack enough good to beat celtics or Heat. this is a real occasion. don't waste it.

    look at deng, he scores 28pts monday then scores 10 with 2/10 against charlotte. We can't count on him, he is too irregular.

    If we can get Melo without loosing Noah then let's not hesitate.

  • In reply to deewaves:

    I think most people would not hesitate if you could get Melo without losing Noah. However, the odds of this happening are very small.

  • In reply to drob:

    Okay here it goes....I'm join the Mr. Happy camp. I said it. I think this deal can be done. Look at the facts:
    1.) Melo has incredible power to determine his destination.
    2.) Nuggets want a huge package for Melo.

    Myriad factors might change the outcome:
    1.) Nuggets lose their bargaining power.
    2.) Carmelo signs contract extension.
    3.) Carmelo goes to free agency.

    Now stick with me:
    Let's take New Jersey off the table. I believe, that above all, New Jersey would have to secure the extension to give up the pieces for Melo. He will not meet with them.
    That leaves us with just two likely destinations for Melo:
    New York
    Chicago

    If this goes to free agency, the Knicks will win. I will go on record now, however, and say the Bulls will have the advantage at making an in-season trade for Melo. As time goes on, the Nuggets will be forced to bring the asking price down. The GM of the Nuggets had made a grievous error in asking too much for Carmelo, because he will never again get an offer up to par with what Jersey offered. Will they let him go to free agency without even getting a 1st in compensation? I think not.

  • In reply to KingOfCrumbs:

    If the Nuggets dont' want Deng's contract and a 3rd team can't be found, then the deal is over for Chicago. There is a very real chance that Denver would rather have cap room than the Bulls trade package.

  • In reply to DougThonus:

    Despite my general disdain for Deng, The Bulls should be able to find a third team to swap Deng for assets that the Nuggets want,

    Contracts infinately worse than Deng's for less productive players have been moved time and time again.

    If they really want to make the deal happen, they just have to work their asses off to make it happen.

    I am not sure that the Bulls want it bad enough, and by bad enough, I don't mean giving up Noah.

  • In reply to KingOfCrumbs:

    I think that this is last summer all over again, especially with WWW showing up.

    Lets face it last summer the prinicipals themselves, Wade, Lebron and Bosh gave off plenty of signals that they were headed for Miami, we(and the media whores) just didn't want to believe them.

    Melo appears to have signaled his preference for NY, so that is where he will end up.

    The Bulls are either leverage, a smokescreen or a mirage, but we are about as likely to land Melo as we were to land Lebron and/or Wade, somewhere between Zero and not.

  • In reply to drob:

    Agreed. Sam Smith outlined ways they can get a solid SG next year. One name he mentioned as a possibility is the 20ppg Kevin Martin.

  • I have some BUSINESS to take care. Be back later.

  • In reply to MrHappy:

    Mental masturbation does not count.

  • In reply to KingOfCrumbs:

    I am sure that he is working the phones with all his conections to make sure that Melo is delivered to the Bulls.

  • In reply to MrHappy:

    Yesterday game is the proof that bulls need carmelo. If Rose wasn't there, the bulls would have shot at 25% !! damn !! we can't count on deng offensivly. brewer, bogans, watson are bad players.

  • In reply to deewaves:

    Take 2 of the best 3 players off any team and it probably sucks. I don't think yesterday is indicative of anything.

  • In reply to MrHappy:

    via JerseyChaser...

    The Knicks are universally rumored to be his top preference, though our sources have maintained it is the Bulls, but New York reportedly doesn

  • In reply to MrHappy:

    It's obvious that Melo is using Chicago to motivate NY. In fact, NY is busy right now trying to get enough assets so Denver will swallow the bitter pill and pull the trigger on a trade.

  • In reply to MrHappy:

    jerseychaser is where all the good breaking news is.

  • In reply to MrHappy:

    i check out various scenarios with a third team and y can be done like for example this one

    chicago gets melo.
    the cavaliers get deng,gibson
    denver gets verajao,,johnson,session and picks

  • In reply to Richy:

    Maybe this is better

    Bulls Get: Melo, Boobie Gibs, & Shelden
    Nuggets Get: Varejao, Asik, and Moon
    Cavs Get: Deng, CJ, & JJ

  • In reply to Richy:

    The Bulls don't need Melo &
    Melo does not want to come here

    So who cares?

    Also, if New Jersey is out, which they are not, because they don't want to lose to much, what does that even mean for the Bulls? They can't even put together a better package than the Knicks.

  • In reply to MrHappy:

    FYI: This isn't about LEVERAGE. It's about WINNING. Melo wants to win.

    TRUST ME on that.

    * Who was the 1st person who suggested Melo was going to want out of Denver? Mr.?

  • In reply to MrHappy:

    I have no idea who the first person to mention it was, probably someone on hoopsworld or ESPN? Given Melo trade rumors go at least as far back as the 2008 off-season when Denver were allegedly considering moving him instead of Iverson, and that pre-dates this blog, I hope you're not claiming credit.

  • In reply to DontLetsStart:

    He definitely is doing that. But his claims are as dubious as the one he claimed for Wade signing with the Bulls

  • In reply to DontLetsStart:

    Denver doesnt want to take on Deng now and wont in the future. The BIG question is, IF the Bulls can find a 3rd team to take Deng for an expiring contract (Dallas for Butler), would Denver accept Gibson, Butler and 2 1st rd picks (Including the Charlotte pick) OVER NY's offer of Gallinari, Fields and a pick? From the outside NY's offer looks better but Denver is FED UP with NY, would they accept less from the Bulls?

  • In reply to sukid09:

    Being fed up wont stop them from making the trade if it's the best offer. Look at how Cleveland and Toronto did S&Ts with Miami, Denver will swallow their pride and deal with NY if they have to.

  • In reply to DontLetsStart:

    I agree that it's likely they'll deal with the Knicks at the deadline, but I think losing Melo could cost them more money than the Knicks offer makes them so I don't think it's a lock.

  • In reply to DougThonus:

    This is what I would bet on to happen.

  • In reply to sukid09:

    Dallas does seem like a team that might be willing to take on Deng's contract for the player that he is. An expiring and a 1st, maybe.

    I would love to steal Dominique JOnes from them to start for us at 2 guard, the guy is an animal on both sides of the ball.

  • In reply to MrHappy:

    C'mon dude, really? Are you actually this much of a tool? Can your really be this full of yourself? Seriously, what do you gain from the absurd level of vanity and arrogance that you cram down the throats of posters on a freakin' sports blog? You have my pity.

  • In reply to MrHappy:

    You're wrong. Melo wants to go to NY first. Winning is second. Period.

  • In reply to MrHappy:

    You seem to have this irrational belief that you're the only one who thought of Melo to the Bulls and the only one who wants it to happen.

    In reality, most Bulls fans have been talking about it forever and want it to happen. I don't think you've proposed a Melo deal that I wouldn't do as a fan. I just think your proposals are ones Denver will reject.

  • In reply to DougThonus:

    Doug, we just have to trust him.

    Afterall, he has been so spot on with all his other take it to the bank predictions, we have to believe him when he gives us the old wink wink, hmmmmmm.

  • In reply to MrHappy:

    Statistics genius Nate Silver chimes in on Carmelo stats debate.

    Why Carmelo Anthony Is the Ultimate Team Player (and What

  • In reply to MrHappy:

    Uh-oh....not the "business" again. Mr. Happy's business has to do with a glossy 8X10 of Carmelo Anthony, some lotion and a box of kleenex.

    I remember your "business" in regards to D-Wade coming to Chicago last summer. I predict hairy palms and blindness in your future.

  • You think so? Deng is a horrible piece for a team in the #1 lottery position, he's paid a lot and is good enough to add a few wins but not good enough to build around. The Cavs are about the last team in the league who I'd expect to take on Deng.

    IMO the reason the Nuggets want Noah is because they believe a team with Billups/Lawson/Afflalo/Deng/Noah/Nene can remain a playoff team (ie keeps bums on seats), getting Varejao and no Deng just puts them on the hook for an expensive contract while sucking.

    I believe both the Cavs and the Nuggets laugh at this deal.

  • In reply to DontLetsStart:

    The Cavs want an exciting team or in other words ...7th or 8th seed and give a good series to Miami/Boston. That's what Gilbert wants now to show he is rebuilding on the fly and not tanking to get that 1st pick when there is no LeBron available in the draft. That's how he is going to sell seats....otherwise, if Cleveland tanks to get draft picks(hoping to get lucky),..their arena will be empty next year.

  • In reply to schaumburgfan:

    The best way for the Cavs to sell seats is to get a #1 pick. Deng doesn't sell tickets, and given the sorry state of their team, isn't getting them to the playoffs either.

  • In reply to schaumburgfan:

    What about this with some first round picks? Minnesota has enough cap space to take Deng straight up.
    http://games.espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=4779zf4

  • In reply to schaumburgfan:

    i like the fact that the Bulls have made their offer and is not moving. They had a plan going into this season and will not allow the rumors of melo screw with them like the kobe rumors. Melo or not they're on a road to be winners.

  • In reply to schaumburgfan:

    I totally think NJ is bluffing. I think they are putting pressure on Denver and Carmelo to make a move. It was even twitted that the NJ owner was going to dinner with 3 NBA writers. Do you not think he will use the media to really scare Denver and Melo into making a trade. Also Wild Wes is again using the Bulls as leverage, the same way he did when Lebron was a free agent, to put pressure on the Knicks to make something happen. If the Bulls can orchastrate a 3 way trade that lands them Melo, it would be huge. Anything can happen, hey Gasol did go to LA for basically potentially nothing. I say potentially because at least Marc Gasol turned out to be a legitimate NBA Centre. Back then he was a 2nd round pick.

  • In reply to argie2333:

    The Nuggets already want to make a trade and want to accept NJ's offer which is far and away the best they're going to do. Melo is the only hold up, and the Nets announcing they're giving up is because he doesn't want to go there. There's no bluff to it, the Nets tried hard to win Melo over but he doesn't even want to talk to them now there's nothing they can do.

  • In reply to schaumburgfan:

    i think the bulls have a good shut to land melo why? melo does not wanto to go too nj and the knicks dont have players to give so that leave the bulls alone thats why wesley y pushing to make a deal with chicago so like i said before it can be done. another scenario trade involving the nets

    chi- gets melo
    nets- gets deng and gibson
    denver- gets favors,outlaw and johnson plus picks

  • In reply to schaumburgfan:

    It's all up to Carmelo (and his wife LaLa Vazquez) and always has been. Whatever team Melo chooses to sign an extension with will get Melo and in the end Denver will be forced to suck up and accept whatever measly compensation they can get in a last minute S&T - just like with LeBron and Bosh.

    And the deadline is NOT the February trading deadline. Because Melo is not an expiring contract but rather has the option to opt out of his 2011-12 commitment, a Carmelo trade can be done as late as June because Melo remains under contract with Denver until he opts out. I don't know when is Melo's deadline to opt out but he hasn't yet.

    I believe Knicks will trade Anthony Randolph for a 1st round pick, and then buy another 1st round pick for $3 million cash. Then Melo refuses to sign with any team but the Knicks and Denver is forced to take the Knicks two draft picks as compensation in a last minute S&T. Just my opinion.

    As an aside, I can't imagine anyone in the Bulls organization even answering Worldwide Wesley's phone calls after he convinced Bulls to dump Hinrich and Salmons (and pay 3 draft picks to do so) with Wesley's assurance that LeBron and Bosh were coming to Chicago.

    But there is always the slim possibility of a Chicago 3-way deal as Denver won't take Luol Deng's contract and Bulls won't trade Noah.

  • In reply to schaumburgfan:

    For everyone

    We all hate luol deng and thinks he sucks and is overpaid, why would any team (specially a rebuilding one) take him on their team. This is all nonsense, Carmelo Anthony is not coming to the Bulls. He will end up on the Knicks one way or another because that-s wwhere he wabnts to play and is a free agent. Whatever money he loses on salary with the new CBA, people in NY will buy his shit like crazy and make him a ton of money

  • In reply to schaumburgfan:

    If there was any doubt before about the necessity of Noah to our current roster, it has become clear now...

    Is Noah irreplaceable? no.

    Is Noah necessary to keep this roster functional over the long run? yes.

  • In reply to DontLetsStart:

    Aint gonna happen. They arent giving up Noah and they shouldnt. I think its just as well anyway. Anthony just another stuck up little punk like LeBron who thinks the world revolves around him. Believe me, the Bulls dont need that!

  • In reply to DontLetsStart:

    I doubt Deng adds many wins to them this year, if any, and attracting FAs to Cleveland is impossible. It makes a lot of sense for them to take on a contract like Deng for that reason because they're unlikely to be able to capitalize on the cap room.

    I doubt they'd want to compromise their lotto position, but I doubt Deng really does that.

  • In reply to DougThonus:

    the problem with this scenario, is the Cleveland does not believe that they will be unable to attract free agents with their money. So they won't use cap space on Deng.

    Unfortunatley for us in this instance, but management is prone to the same wishful thinking that fans are.

  • How 'bout Noah to Cleveland? I hear his camp is pushing for it.

  • Agreed. The rumor to the Bulls is simply leverage. Melo, I think, is playing the trade game. It reminds me of Dwayne Wade over the summer. He had no intention of coming to Chicago, had ulterior motives, and was a tease. Melo is a tease, too.

  • In reply to zentastic:

    It would be Denver playing the leverage game if anyone is. They're the ones who need a second team involved to get the bidding up. If it's only New York (especially with them under the cap in the summer) then they have to take wahtever New York offers.

  • Shakes is right. The key for the Bulls is to trade Boozer not Gibson or Deng.
    With Melo they don't need Boozer's scoring. And Thibs loves Deng.
    Boozer is an All Star. In a smaller market he has a lot of marketing value.
    Plus Boozer really hasn't really assimilated with this team yet and may not ever be a great fit.
    His defense and pace of play don't match plus his offense clogs the lane.
    Melo is a better fit.

  • In reply to Waldock:

    I have suggested before that the Bulls should look to trade Boozer in a couple of years but if Denver would take him now along with the bulls first round picks that would be even better cause Taj to me is better defensively and can put up good numbers in scoring and rebounding. And if the Bulls can find a team to take on Deng's contract for maybe another pick or two that would benefit the deal as well.

  • In reply to Reese1:

    Denver aren't going to want to take Boozer, my suggestion was to find a third team (Indiana seems to make some sense from a contract and fit point of view).

    If you get Melo it makes zero sense to dump Deng for picks, you want to win now so you want to retain talent. A Melo/Deng/Taj 3/4 rotation probably leaves you with Deng or Melo playing about half the available PF minutes, which should be reasonable because both are pretty good rebounders and you could hide problems defensively by having all their minutes overlap with Noah's.

  • In reply to DontLetsStart:

    That would be A good deal as well, long as the Bulls can get more consistent perimeter scoring I'm all for it. A combination of Taj Noah Deng and Melo would be lethal against the elite teams in the east if not the league.

  • In reply to Reese1:

    Is Boozer with his contract tradable? I think there are a few teams that Carlos would be good on. Indiana is a great example.
    Is it feasible?

  • In reply to Waldock:

    Everyone can be traded, look at Arenas or Lewis. The question is whether you like what you have to take back.

    My example is purely theoretical, because I don't think the Bulls are considering moving Boozer, and I don't think Melo will sign an extension here, so we'll never find out if Indiana would do it.

  • In reply to Waldock:

    I think the more germane issue is that Anthony may not want to sign here.
    I sincerely believe that the Bulls would part with Boozer if it got them Carmelo.

  • In reply to Waldock:

    The Nuggets will either take the Nets deal at the trade deadline (in the UNLIKELY event that Melo agrees to sign an extension with NJ) or Melo opts out in the summer and signs with the Knicks. I don't see Chicago and New York being willing or able to put together a better trade package than NJ. The Bulls rightfully aren't willing include Noah and New York isn't able to provide the young talent that Denver wants.

  • In reply to Waldock:

    At any rate, if Houston will trade with Denver without an extension. all other discussion may be moot.

  • Melo has a decent post game too, although whether he can be convinced to use it ...

  • I doubt Denver would deal with Houston. They don't want Melo in the Western Conference.

    And Melo doesn't want to play for them anyway.

  • NOTE:

    I'm pretty sure Melo's agents are coming to Chicago to meet w/ the Bulls Thurs. thru Saturday.

    Something might get done, because Denver starts an extended road trip on Monday.

    The timing is there for a trade to be made this weekend.

  • In reply to MrHappy:

    If you're so sure Melo is coming to the Bulls I'll make a bet with you: if Melo is traded to the Bulls by the trade deadline I'll stop posting here. If Melo isn't traded to the Bulls by the trade deadline, you stop posting here.

    Since you're 100% sure on this information it should be an easy bet to make, no?

  • In reply to DontLetsStart:

    I like that proposal Shakes...way to take 1 for the team bro! :-)

  • In reply to MrHappy:

    The timing is there for a deal to happen at one minute to the trade deadline, either Melo blinks and agrees to sign for $65 million with NJ, or Denver blinks and accepts whatever they can get from the Knicks.

  • In reply to MrHappy:

    Has anyone considered that Rose may not want Melo on his team, just like he didn't want Lebron or Wade.

  • It's not about a trade, any trade. It's about who Melo agrees to sign an extension with. That's it. That's all of it!

    Melo was not going to sign with New Jersey. That's why that deal blew up.

  • You don't have to use him like that every time down the floor. It's not like Boozer scores all of his points from the post either. I'm just saying that you'd still have the option to play like that when matchups are favourable to it.
