lee to utah for our first round pick.
i think utah will keep one or the other but on the chance that both end up elsewhere, this should definitely get considered.
we won't have to worry about any 2010 free agents if they resign lee.cause they aint comin' for the money we'd be offering.lee ain't won **** in his life.you think having the chance to play with lee is gonna bring lebron or wade to come here?lol.
and no we don't have to tank the season.I'm not for tanking at all.I'm for letting the young guys(gallo, hill,chandler) play.

If we make the playoffs then we traded d lee for a 15-20 pick (not worth)and if we tank the seasson we become even more unatractive for the 2010 FA(even more worse).
If we dont resign Lee I think we can get better deals for him this year or next so we should not consider dealing with utah for our pick back.
Anyway this is pointless since we can't trade D LEE for only our pick back. Utah dont have the cap to sign Lee and in a sign and trade we have to take salary back.
Interesting thread. Utah is on my list of possible Lee destinations via sign-and-trade, but I want to dump salary in the process.
Utah was hoping to unload Boozer in that 3/way deal that just fell through. That could’ve prevented the Millsap offer sheet, because it could've given Utah leeway to extend Millsap themselves (possibly for lower $$$)...
Now Millsap is signed to a hefty offer sheet, and Utah can’t realistically match it because that'll put them about 13.5 mil over the luxury tax threshold. It's too bad for them, because they were hoping for Millsap to replace Boozer as their starting power forward for years to come...
No Millsap, means Utah needs their power forward of the future. Boozer is entering the final year of his deal, and they’re trying to trade him. They want to get under the luxury tax threshold (they're about 3.5 mil over).
OK, here’s what I propose:
DLee + Jeffries for Boozer
They get their PF of the future (Lee) and we get out from under the Jeffries contract. They also save about 4.5 mil in salary + luxury tax from this year’s cap.

You do have a point. If we could get rid of Jerome James...
I mean the thing with Jeffries is we have to trade him to a team not looking to buy into the free agent market in 2010. We also have to trade him to a team that for some reason wants his services.
The answer, my friends, is the Washington Wizards. A Mike James for Jared Jeffries swap would be a move that the Wizards should be more than willing to pull the trigger on. The last time the Wizards were good, they had Jared Jeffries and his defense. The Wizards clearly don't need cap space in 2010, they're over the 2010 cap as it is right now. Seriously I don't know why Walsh hasn't pulled the Mike James for Jared Jeffries deal yet
As far as your trade idea w/ getting our #1 back... That trade proposal would have to include getting back Kyle Korver, to match up salaries with DLee's BYC number. I hope you're right about Jeffries.
Utah giving us carlos booozer for jefferies and Leee hahahah
thats comedy right there.
Why do you think they’re not comparable? Lee put up 16 and 12 last year. He led the NBA in double doubles last year. He did so while shooting an impressive 55% from the field.
Everyone knows Boozer has the better resume and plays better interior defense, but neither guy blocks shots. I question you’re knowledge when you imply that these two players shouldn’t be mentioned in the same breath.
Maybe you were so impressed with Boozer’s knee surgery last season that limited him to 37 games... LOL
Maybe you don’t realize that uneven trades happen in the NBA all the time, because of the business side of the sport. Did you forget that just recently a still highly productive Shaquille O'Neal (future hall of famer and current NBA all star) got traded to the Cavs for bench warmer Sasha Pavlovic and washed up Ben Wallace who is talking RETIREMENT.
yeah exactly they shouldnt be compared together
boozer has been consistently better coached by the same hall of famer for a few years,
boozer has been on a winning playoff team that went to the eastern conference finals two years ago
boozer is a bonafied all star big in the western conference
boozer has been a consistent top ten rebounder his entire career
boozer plays defense
boozer hits mid range jumpers with consistency
boozer passes out of double teams
boozer has been starting material since his first nba game
boozer put up DLEE numbers in his second season as a pro
boozer put up 20 pnts just under 14 rebs a game against the lakers bynum and gasol this post season
boozer is only a year and a half older than lee
boozer has avg a steal per game for the past 3 seasons
boozers career playoff avgs are 20 and 12 in 34 games
well basically he has done none of that.
end of story,
The fact that you ignorantly scoffed at the idea that they could be traded for each other, shows that you know jack sh*t about the business side of basketball. I have news for you: Lebron is not king, the salary cap is. Sometimes the talent matches up in a trade, and sometimes it doesn't, but the salaries match up for cap purposes. I'm surprised that you don't know this by now.
You scoff at the idea of a Lee/Jeffries for Boozer deal, yet you conveniantly didn't respond to this part of my post:I'll start taking you seriously when you finally study this: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]Maybe you don’t realize that uneven trades happen in the NBA all the time, because of the business side of the sport.
