A recurring rumor involving the Jazz trading versatile forward Andrei Kirilenko has been popping up in Utah once again, according to The Salt Lake Tribune.

Kirilenko has three years and almost $50 million remaining on his contract with the Jazz, which makes him somewhat difficult to trade.

With Carlos Boozer possessing the ability to opt out of his contract next summer, possibly to sign a long-term deal with the Jazz, the team could look to trim some salary to order to prepare a lucrative offer for the former Duke big man.

Trading Kirilenko, could help them accomplish that

Remember when AK played the 4, he was an All-Star maybe they should trade Boozer because he could net them a better player. That way they get some production out of AK and not worry about Boozer bolting or risk overpaying for him.

Utah ain't taking that. Then their pick-and-roll identity, which they're good at, would be gone. And Boozer is way better than Marion.

Trade him to New York. I'm almost positive they'd take his contract....they take everyone elses. Besides, the Jazz could grab Quentin Richardson and perhaps another player on that team with an expiring contract (curry or randolph maybe?) that could contribute off the bench or help them out in the post to help Boozer.

The Jazz lack a decent SF behind Kirilenko. If they are to trade him, better be for another SF.

Good trade, not sure NY would want Ben though. Cavs throw out **** and get some good stuff in return.

No thanks. The Jazz don't get any better and have to give up 2 starters. It can clear a little room with a couple expirings, but the team takes a step back in two positions to make room for another (Boozer) who may not even resign anyways. This scenario could spell doom for the Jazz if Boozer leaves, then D-Will will definitely not resign when his contract is next up.

Ak for Eddie Curry and Q-Rich and we even Give Utah some Candies as a present.

Wonder if Lakers would be interested in Trading Odom for AK.

It would somehow make sense for both teams.

I know this rumor surfaced several times during the past several years. This would be a trade that I would enjoy seeing go through.

I don't think it's that bad. Unfortunately I had to add sum junk in so the money evens itself out. But Curry could help in the post. Personally I don't feel like the Jazz have a decent starting Center and I don't think Okur is too good. Then your bench is power packed a bit with Damon Jones (who can knock down the good 3 for you) and Quentin Richardson with Malik Rose. imo, it deepens the Jazz squad a bit. Q-Rich could possibly start at the 3. For NY, I believe Snow is pretty much done and that's a cool 7 mil in your pocket in a contract. AK is still a good player and can quickly help out with the young guys on the team and would be a nice addition. (cause he still is a good player). Ben Wallace I think could help out too. But I just threw him in to make it work. For the Cavs, I threw Okur in but he could play the 4 or backup Ilgalskus. then you have J-Craw there and he could be a hell of a 6th man or starting point. He can put up points and give LJ that scoring help he so desparately needs plus it'd take the pressure off of Verajao. I dunno. Just my thoughts. Kind of hard to put together a hell of a trade with so much money involved and so many teams wayyy over the cap. I'll try again.

alright. this one I highly doubt would happen. But it does seem like a good one to me imo:

http://games.espn.go.com/nba/features/traderesult?players=136~3239~406~2172~2419~3188~43 4&teams=5~5~26~26~26~17~17&te=&cash=


Jazz get: Verjao (who could perhaps be re-signed cheap plus have enough doe to re-sign Boozer), Damon Jones (3 point machine off the bench could help a lot), and Sasha Pavlovic (if anything ever happens at the 2 or 3, there's a cheap substitute with 2 years left on the contract. He can score, play decent D and is an all around good ball player)

Cavs get: Vince Carter, Sean Williams (Yes, V.C. himself comes to Cleveland to help out LJ) Can that compensate for Verajao's departure? I say so. he needs a change of screnery anyway and you pair LJ and VC together you got hell to pay facing those two on the same team. Plus a young 6'10 center to help Ilgaskus and Ben Wallace in the Post off the bench.)

Nets get: AK, Morris Almond (Almond can come off the bench and score. And he'd be a nice compliment to Devin harris....maybe even take his job. AK is still young and with a young team with no stars the Nets would still be in the rebuilding process with young players in place to grow together. Still no real leader. But one could come out of the group)

I just thought this was funny, but the 06-07 season when AK's stats dropped like crazy he reportedly said it was because he was playing World of Warcraft to much!!! Sorry I don't have a link, but that's just what I remember reading and thought it was something funny to bring up in this forum.

Ridiculous deal for Utah. AK47 for Marion is what would happen.

bogdanrom
08-13-2008, 12:49 AM
AK47 for Haywood, Stevenson, and a 1st round pick.
Washington: get a defensive presence, put Butler at SG, and AK47 at SF or PF.
Utah: Uhmmm, they get... uhmmm a center and a guy who will talk thrash to Lebron hmmm.

Pretty good trade if you ask me.:D

If the rumor of Boozer being interested in Miami are true then why not, but Marion is likely gone after this year and is pretty pricey to retain

The Clippers need a 4 and AK is playing out of position as a 3. Mobley and Thomas could provide short term help at the 2 and 3 for the jazz and would expire sooner. If Utah threw in Almond who they are not using... the clips could have some competition at the 2 to spur on draft pick Gordon. Good for both teams... good for the world.

IMO i think that is a smelly trade for everyone except Cleveland. If NY kept Curry and traded Randolf that would be better for them. Maybe this (http://games.espn.go.com/nba/features/traderesult?players=3401~3437~831~885~3194~1717~10 17~703~3205~306~434~1014&teams=26~18~26~18~26~5~26~5~18~5~18~5&te=3188:18-2986&cash=) would be better for all.

^^ The file you have requested can not be found. If you have tried this file because of a bookmark then you are searching for a bad/dumb trade. Maybe the original poster is less than bright.

i like main idea of all the trades, except the last one you just did with randolph, chanlder, allred, and wally coming to utah for ak, okur, harpring, almond, and fesenko hahaha ya right! it would be cool to get stevenson, or pavlovic back in utah :rolleyes: or allred back to where he played college ball lol maybe he could play for the d league flash and sell some more tickets there? but ya i likes the wizards and clippers trade, and im sure a goods 3 way trade could happen with the knicks.

The best trade out there due to what occured yesterday would be sending AK along with Ronnie Price and Morris Almond a proven scorer, to the Cavs for Wally Z (expiring contract) and Delonte West.

This would be a Good trade for the cavs because it gives AK a chance to play at his original position which is Power Forward. Ronnie Price is proven to be a solid backup PG that can run the offense. The cavs improve tremendously on the defensive end with both AK and Price.

The Jazz on the other hand would have the deepest PG structure in the league with Williams, West and Knight. I wouldn't like Wally too much but it gives us a chance to retain some of those contracts we will lose next season.

whats ridiculos about it. There is a lot of thought that Boozer will come to Miami next year anyways...and this guy said AK47 was an all-star at PF... well Marion for Boozer would work for both sides. Miami gets its guys 1 year earlier...and Utah gets a 4 time all-star (+ some fillers or picks) and allows them to move AK back to the 4...

does it make Utah better? probably not... but is it ridiculous...well that depends on how confident Utah is that Boozer will definately be back...

You guys are thinking what players the jazz need for AK47, but the Jazz fans are looking more to the future and seeing that at the end of this season the chances of re-signing memo, booz, millsap, korv and whoever else look really slim while we have AKs huge contract. This is why we need to trade him for an expiring like Sczerbiak. And I think Utah will do its best to keep Booz at all costs, so I doubt they'd just trade him for Marion, giving us zero post presence.
