Boozer isn't going to get traded for peanuts.
Odom wants 10 Mil and you would have to trade something for him
AI is going to go where the money is.

Even if they did get all 3, I still say no.

07-15-2009, 07:37 PM
Ha this is just stupidity. They add Odom and Iverson with what? Odom gets MLE, Iverson wants the same. And Boozer he just comes for nothing? And anyway with those guys this team wouldn't win it. All three big eastern teams are still better.

Sign and trade for Odom Mark Blount and toronto first round pick we acquired in Jermaine oniel trade

Bench is too weak and Boozer could get hurt. They'd be ECF contenders but nothing more than that. Plus I don't think there's a chance they'll get all of those guys.

Utah will get a better offer for Boozer (I.E. Chicago offers tyrus thomas, and a bigger expiring.) L.A. will SURELY get a better offer for Odom... Magloire and Wright???? And A.I. will sigh with the Clippers who can pay him more.

Even if by some stroke of luck they got all 3, Lakers, Celtics, Orlando, Cleveland are still better. You think the Celtics are old? A.I. is old. And Boozer has the body of a 50 year old with his injuries.

Beasley>Odom now and forever. He's 9 years younger, more talented and cheaper.

Think about it.

No they are not. AI wants at LEAST, a teams full mid level. Odom is turning town 3 years, 30 million and 4 years 36 million. You think he wants to play in Miami for 6 million per season? If that was true, he would have signed there a long time ago. He could have just called them and said "hey, I would like to come back for the mid level exception." But that did not happen. And who are the Heat going to give up for Boozer? If the Bulls are willing to give up KH12 and Ty Thomas, who would you give up to trump that deal?

Wont be able to get all 3. But to answer your question, Yes we would be contenders but wouldnt be gave the championship ill tell you that but we would have a very good chance at it. Heat would have a better chance with them than without them though obviously. You put consistent scorers around Wade, you automatically have contenders because of just how good Wade is.

That wasn't even the deal. The Bulls wanted Jerryd Bayless and Travis Outlaw along with Carlos Boozer for those two. The Blazers bailed on the deal and there is no way in hell they are going to deal with the Jazz if they match the Millsap deal. No Blazers, no deal for the Bulls. The Jazz have a point guard - the Pistons won't even trade Prince for Boozer and the Jazz want luxury tax relief at this point. The Heat are the best option.

What is subpar about leading rookies in scoring per 48, shooting 47% from FG and 41% from 3-pointers as a perimeter oriented PF in your rookie year, and averaging 14/6 in 24 minutes a game, and averaging 21 pts and 8.5 rebs per game in his 8 April games...

People just assume Beasley is trouble and overratted without even bothering to look at what he did last year...

07-16-2009, 08:35 AM
I still don't get why Miami would be interested in Odom, period. Or Boozer for that matter. Beasley is gonna be a very good PF. Why bring in guys that will hinder his development? I don't like any of them on Miami, unless AI is willing to take a secondary role, and give minutes to Chalmers. Wade, as much as he wants to win, has to recognize that Beasley is gonna be sweet. Now they need a SF who can slash and shoot, and some depth at PG. Getting any of these guys are just bandaids.

Beasley has spent this offseason developing at the 3... in the mold of a Carmello Anthony type. With that said Boozer can start at PF and Beasley at SF with Lamar coming off the bench ina role very similar to his role in LA. There are 96 minutes available at the 2 forward spots (48 x 2): Boozer can get 28 minutes at PF and 5-7 at center behind JO, Beasley can have 25minutes at the SF and maybe 10 or so at the PF, which leave 23 minutes at SF and 10 at PF for Lamar Odom. You could have Beasley, Boozer, and Odom and have them all average over 33 minutes a game! That does not hinder Beasley's developement. Then next summer if Beasley has a breakout year Miami doesnt have to resign Boozer. They can spend the money on a center or PG...

If the Heat acquire Boozer/Odom he re-signs. He's been asking for talent around him for him to re-sign. The Bulls need another superstar along Rose it will not be Wade tho. Plus they would be a bad duo, they both can't shoot very well.

hey man, i agree with you. i highly doubt that we'd be able to get all 3 of them, but adding 2 of them is a possibility. obviuosly, we'd want to have boozer and odom, and with that lineup i believe that we would be contenders. having d-wade is already a great start, then you add a versatile bigman in odom, a great post scorer and rebounder in boozer, keep jermaine for big man defense and solid production, and our young role players will most definitely improve, especially beasley. I could see this tem as a championship contender, but the lakers would still be better

HoopsMachine
07-16-2009, 11:08 AM
If they add Boozer I can see them as a 2nd round playoff team. It definitely would propel them to 4th or 5th realistically and give them and outsider's chance of contending.

You miami fans are all on cloud nine. Read between the lines when Wade speaks. He said unless the team becomes contenders that he'll bolt!

There is absolutely no top available player that is making his way to Miami!!!

Boozer will make it to Chicago or stay in Utah before he goes to Miami. And thats not even my opinion. Read the reports! A.I. is rumored to go every where in the nba so don't consider yourselves lucky that miami was included in that.

Odom! may go to the heat. Maybe? Maybe tomorrow he'll be playing somewhere else. But the miami heat will need alot more than Odom to keep Wade happy. And seriously? Will Odom make your team that much better?:rolleyes:

I as a chicago bulls fan really don't think Wade will fit this team because rose is here. I really love Wade as a player and would love to have him on the bulls but Rose and wade are almost the same type of player. SO I dont think it'll match well.

Miami heat fans, I mean this with 100% sincerity....GOOD LUCK on next year and keeping Wade the following summer. I say you have a 25% chance of keeping him.

Its my opinion and its probably wrong but, if your "Legend" Pat Riley keeps his hands under his @$S this off season than Michael Beasley will be the new star of south beach next year.

Breaking News on the Odom Front!: Odom likely to sign a deal with Miami by the end of the week!

It seems likely that Lamar Odom could sign a five-season deal with the Miami Heat at the mid-level exception ($5.8 million for next season and $34 million or so for the length of the contract) by the end of the week.

You miami fans are all on cloud nine. Read between the lines when Wade speaks. He said unless the team becomes contenders that he'll bolt!

There is absolutely no top available player that is making his way to Miami!!!

Boozer will make it to Chicago or stay in Utah before he goes to Miami. And thats not even my opinion. Read the reports! A.I. is rumored to go every where in the nba so don't consider yourselves lucky that miami was included in that.

Odom! may go to the heat. Maybe? Maybe tomorrow he'll be playing somewhere else. But the miami heat will need alot more than Odom to keep Wade happy. And seriously? Will Odom make your team that much better?:rolleyes:

I as a chicago bulls fan really don't think Wade will fit this team because rose is here. I really love Wade as a player and would love to have him on the bulls but Rose and wade are almost the same type of player. SO I dont think it'll match well.

Miami heat fans, I mean this with 100% sincerity....GOOD LUCK on next year and keeping Wade the following summer. I say you have a 25% chance of keeping him.

Its my opinion and its probably wrong but, if your "Legend" Pat Riley keeps his hands under his @$S this off season than Michael Beasley will be the new star of south beach next year.

Yeah read this one it's front page on Yahoo.

They would not have to trade Beasley for Boozer, and if they somehow got that team they would be in the discussion for a championship. Sans Iverson they may even be better.

Yes they will. the jazz aren't total idiots.

If the Knicks trade for Kobe, LeBron, and Bosh do you think that they would be the favs to win the championship? There's no way the Heat can get all of those players and it's a stupid question to even ask if any decent team adds 3 allstars I think they would be one of the favorites, but that's not gonna happen sorry.

wow a lot of Miami Heat haters. I agree though Miami won't be able to get all three of them, but I can definitely see them getting Odom/Boozer. There are already reports that Lamar will sign with Miami at the end of the week for a 5 year deal at the Mid-level exception(5.8mil). Then I can see Miami trading for Boozer. They can Boozer for Haslem(Jerry Sloan's type of player) and James Jones. Utah isn't looking for so much talent in return for Carlos anyways. They are trying to retain Milsap. Miami won't be a favorite to win a championship, but these upgrades resign Wade IMO. Plus they have one of the best in the business in Pat Riley to make these deals go through.
Mario Chalmers/Patrick Beverly
Dwyane Wade/Daquean Cook
Lamar Odom/Jamario Moon
Carlos Boozer/Micheal Beasley(6th man)
Jermaine O'Neal/ Jamal Magloire

Not true contenders, but I'll put them #3 or #4 in the East.

If they do get Lamar I hope our GM says Beasley or no deal to the Heat, especialy with the possibility of Lamar and Boozer soon to be locked up Beasley may as well come here.

Also, have you noticed that when Wade speaks, its always about putting a star around him, playing with a star or an olympian such as Boozer. He has never mentioned Beasley, putting a star around him and Beasley, its alwasy just him. Wade obviously isnt high on the kid, and I reckon if it was up to him he's trade Beasley for Boozer in a heartbeat.

Pat Riley wouldn't trade Beasley for Boozer. I can see a deal with Udnois Haslem, James Jones, and another filler to bring Boozer to South Beach. Isn't Utah's top priority to resign Milsap? Why would they want a Starting PF who would take away a lot of minutes from Milsap? That doesn't make sense, but Haslem would be a good fit in Utah. A player that gives it his all on the court and willing to take sacrifices for the team now that is Jerry Sloan type of player.

The jazz can easily pay the LT for one year if the right offer doesn't come along. They have no debt and haven't even borrowed any money yet. They can dip into their credit line so they can pay the tax. Boozer for Haslem doesn't do anything for the jazz and haslem on averages 8.7 ppg as a starter so he probably won't do that much as a backup. Miami can offer the most but if they are not offering Beasley they are offering the least.

They would have to trade at least Beasley for Boozer, Sign A.I and trade Haslem for Odom just to get those 3.

C-O'Neal, Anthony
PF-Boozer, Odom
SF-Moon, Jones
SG-Wade, Cook
PG-Chalmers, A.I

Even then I say No.

No we do not need to trade beasly. Everyone keeps saying we need to trade beasley when you don't even know what utah's situation is.

Miami can offer the most but if they are not offering Beasley they are offering the least.

Udnois Haslem might only average 10.0 ppg in his career, but he is consistent, plays defense, and grabs 8-9 boards any given night. Yes, I agree he isn't as talented as Beasley or Boozer, but Boozer might be a 1-year rental for Miami. Miami would get the worst of the deal if Boozer leaves after the following season and Utah gets a franchise player in the making in Micheal Beasley. That's why I think a deal like Haslem + Jones/Wright + filler for Boozer is fair. Utah is trying to retain Milsap and get cap relief.

Here's a rumor of a deal

The essentials of a possible deal would include Miami sending forward Udonis Haslem(notes) and Dorell Wright to Utah. Because Memphis is under the cap, Utah could move Wright's $2.8 million salary to the Grizzlies and save itself approximately $5.6 million with salary and luxury-tax payments. Memphis would probably get cash and picks for its trouble. The Heat would have to send one more small contract to make the math on the salary exchange work.

The longer the jazz keep boozer the better the deal gets. I know the jazz won't do anything that stupid. If we don't get a good player from miami we will get one from somewhere else. If we don't the knicks aren't getting any better so we will just replace him with their unprotected pick that we own.

Miami would not be the favorites to win the East but they would be the 4th best team in the East. As long as LBJ is in Cleveland, the Big Three are intact, and the Magic are shooting a million three and making them, the Heat are the 4th best team in the East. I doubt they get Odom. Why would Odom sign a 5 million dollar deal when he could get 9 with the Lakers? He wouldn't do it just to piss off the Lakers, Odom doesn't seem like that sort of guy. But if they get Boozer, they will still be very good.

Even if Boozer was extending, you wouldn't get Beasley..he would probably be used to trade for a center.

For a possible Boozer rental, it's completely out of the question.

Never going to happen. Not all 3. And even if you did...Boozer goes down by the 2nd month for half the season with a knee injury...AI struggles with Dwyane Wade being the #1 ball hog in the town, fakes another injury and whines...and Odom has a subpar season. End game - first round KNOCKOUT.

Beyond that, the Heat has not entered talks about possibly acquiring forward Carlos Boozer from the Jazz, but is monitoring that situation, with no expectation of a quick resolution by the Jazz.

In Thursday's speech, Riley said the team could acquire Odom, Boozer or both and still put itself in position to be a major player in 2010 free agency. The Heat made it clear to those present that Riley's comments to season-ticket holders were in an "off the record" setting.
