With all the Free Agents on the Market this summer, will either Joe Johnson or Carlos Boozer get Max Contracts from some team?

Johnson: Probably
Boozer: Maybe.

If I had to guess, JJ may, only because that could sway him to either stay or go, knowing this will be his last shot at a huge deal.
Boozer, hell no

As a Jazz fan, I can tell you that Boozer is not deserving of a max contract. As great as he is offensively and rebounding-wise, he just doesn't have the length to play great defense. And of course there are the injury issues.

They both will get one when a team gets desperate. Too many teams with cap space not enough players available

Yes and you might want to add Rudy Gay to that list...some big name FA will re-sign with their old team and some team will just throw it at them to impress their fans

joe johnson will, but not boozer. this postseason has shown why boozer wont get a max deal. whenever longer defenders are on him, he has a tough time scoring and he cant effectively guard big men such as gasol just because of his smaller size.

Duncan = Donkey
05-07-2010, 08:20 PM
Joe Johnson is insanley over rated, no way he deserves a MAX. Im Gueesing a desperate team will give him on though.

Boozer no way, Just to small in Size.

Boozer has actually averaged 19 PPG so far in the series against the Lakers. He has to work harder offensively but he still gets his points. Its his defense, like you said, that ruins it.

As for Joe Johnson, he doesn't deserve one either but will get one.

Someone will pay them a max contract or at least 15 million a year.

Maybe JJ, but not Boozer. Teams will get desperate because they have been planning for the 2010 FA class for a couple years now and have to show their fans something. I think LeBron and Wade resign with their own teams. Miami will get it's pick of any FA as long as Wade stay. Chicago is probably the next most desireable destination because they have some players already in place. After that teams will get desperate.

*Silver&Black*
05-07-2010, 10:47 PM
As a Hawks fan, I can't wait for some team to give a max to Joe. It's going to be funny and good for us. Go right ahead.

MJT91190
05-07-2010, 11:07 PM
I think its possible that JJ will, but not Boozer. In my mind neither truly deserves a max contract. They are both great players, elite ones at that. But giving them max contracts puts them on the same level as THE elite players like Lebron and Wade.

camador22
05-08-2010, 12:12 AM
Neither are worthy of a max contract but both will likely get it. When Bosh goes to Miami and Amare resigns then there will be many teams offering the max. Imagine the Bulls or Knicks with only Boozer as the best free agent available.

Young2Kinsler
05-08-2010, 12:34 AM
If Cuban's crazy *** can't land Amare, Wade, or LeBron, then I wouldn't be shocked to see Dallas throw HUGE money at JJ

05-08-2010, 12:35 AM
IMO Boozer 10-12 a year and JJ 12-14 that's what I think.

yes, way too much money out there not to

just because you have the money doesnt mean you have to spend,nor does it mean you have to concentrate most/all money on one player.

you guys act like every team that has the money has the mindset of max contract must be handed out this year no matter what,like thats the goal itself

CAVS21
05-08-2010, 01:12 AM
They shouldn't. They should be at a point in their careers where they would take less to play with a top tier guy and be number 2(Boozer is already) and try to get rings.

king4day
05-08-2010, 01:18 AM

Lord Leoshes
05-08-2010, 06:54 AM
Joe Johnson, possibly. Carlos Boozer? No.

Count on Bron/Wade/Bosh/Amare/Boozer/JJ to all get max contracts this summer.

Hell i wouldn't be surprised if one of these schmuck GMs gives the max to Gay, & Lee.:facepalm:

Raoul Duke
05-08-2010, 08:39 AM
I think they'll both get something really, really close to a max deal, and I don't think either one is worth it.

tjlipford
05-08-2010, 08:59 AM
I like both, but NO neither will get max contracts. Boozer needs a player like D-Will, and Joe Johnson cant carry a team I think everyone sees that.

05-08-2010, 09:01 AM
I do not think either will get a max unless someone gets really desperate.

Let's just say that Joe Johnson is no special player. You can find several Joe Johnson's in the NBA or wait a yr or two in the draft. He could put the ball in the whole. Congratulations. Give the guy no more than $11-12 mil.


And Boozer is a stud, but he's very undersized against a big frontcourt. Size is important in the NBA. No more than $17-18 mil. Dude is a true consummate professional.

Would you rather want Wade or Bosh?

If I was a Bulls fan, I'd take FLASH.

D. Rose + D. Wade backcourt = :drool: :faint:

I'd take either actually. Wade is my favorite player in the league so generally speaking I would want him more. However, I think Bosh makes our team more complete and we never have had a real team that was complete in both the backcourt and frontcourt (what I mean is having post scoring, rebounding and shot blocking up front and scoring in the backcourt).

THE MTL
05-08-2010, 07:02 PM
They both dont deserve MAX, but they both will get MAX. There will be a team desperate enough to give MAX deals to these guys. Especially, Joe Johnson as one of the only true SG's on the market.

WAY TOO ball dominant back-court. Both players need the ball alot. And also shooting is still a weakness in both players. And no interior scoring on the team.

With all the Free Agents on the Market this summer, will either Joe Johnson or Carlos Boozer get Max Contracts from some team?

With or without all the other free agents neither guy is worth a max deal. I would love to have either but a max deal is a pretty big overpayment for borderline perennial all stars (I mean they should make the all star game but in an off year may not). Max deals go to possible or likely hall of famers in their prime.

Joe Johnson in the playoffs this season.

Carlos Boozer in the playoffs.

21.6 ppg / 13.00 rpg / 3.4 apg / .50 spg / .88 bpg / 2.38 tpg on 55% FG

Joe Johnson is absolutely killing his value during these playoffs. But he still will likely get a max deal because so many teams have cap space.

The excess amount of teams having cap space this summer will result in many mediocre/good players being overpaid as good/great players.

As great as Boozer has been in these playoffs, I still don't think he will get the max. And if he does, whoever gave it to him either got really desperate after missing out on other free agents or is just dumb.

A max player is someone who can be a legit #1 or close to it, kinda like Joe Johnson. Boozer though, isn't.

jim51990

Tony_Starks

Yes and Yes. Once Lebron and Wade re-sign there's going to be a mad dash for everybody else.

spoonhoops
05-09-2010, 11:27 AM
JJ, Yes

Boozer will probably get near max deal, but not quite.

I just hope both players do a S&T so the Hawks and Jazz can get some form of compensation for them.

Lo Porto
05-09-2010, 11:30 AM
The only way Booz gets a max contract is if Miami does a sign and trade prior to the draft. The whole point for Miami would be sending the message to Wade that they want to build a contender. Even then, I don't know Miami would sign him for just under max money, but for the max years.

Why wouldn't Wade come back if Miami does a sign and trade with Bosh using Beasley and a sign and trade with Boozer using their #18 pick. Wade, Bosh and Boozer would be a nasty combo. Miami could afford it if they trade Beasley...

Wade is staying in Miami, & Bosh will probably move down to play with him. + a 3rd allstar caliber player.

I swear this guy is Emo he never shows emotion ne way or another. i am happy the JJ era is over in Atlanta. he is holding our team back with his isolation dribbling, he is a ballhog. I appreciate him taking us through the suckkk years but enough is enough him and Woody are on their way out. .Let some team overpay for him.

Correct me if I am wrong though but isnt ATL the only one that can give him a MAX via sign and trade?

Kobe is obviously much better than joe johnson...
its a no brainer that he got a huge contract.

He was also much better in the 03-04 playoffs(41.3%, 24.5ppg, 5.5 APG) than JJ has been this postseason.(38%, 17ppg)

No.


Any team with max cap can. but if he want the 10% increase, instead of 8%, & 1 extra year then it could only come from his original team.
