The Jazz almost traded forward Carlos Boozer last season when it was learned that his son had been diagnosed with life-threatening sickle cell anemia.

Boozer privately requested to be dealt somewhere closer to where the child was being treated in Miami, which is an area much more conducive to recovery than Utah.

Boozer played through the season mostly away from his son, and before a trade could be worked out, his son full recovered.

"So it got back to business as usual," Jazz owner Larry Miller said, "and never really got public."
