Are the Jazz Headed for a Breakup?

It’s in the back of everyone’s mind: “That’s something we think about a lot,” admitted [Deron] Williams. “In the back of our minds – we don’t talk about it – but we know we might not have the same team coming back next year. While we have this team in tact we need to try to make a run at a title this year. It’s tough. We have a lot of guys coming up on contracts…Millsap, Boozer, Memo, Ronnie Brewer…guys are going to need contracts and it’s going to be tough to pay everybody. We leave that up to the front office, but everybody knows we want them back here. Everybody knows we want Paul back, we want Booze back, we want Memo back, Kyle, guys that can opt out. We want them all back.”

    No way they’re keeping booz and milsap

    The Jazz are f*cked is Boozer doesn’t opt out and they can’t resign Millsap and Brewer. I wonder how much Memo would fetch on the open market?

    Let Booze go. Or sign and trade. Give everyone else what they want.

    yeah, its sad, iv always hated the jazz because my friend loves them, and i just started liking them.although ill always hate boozer

  • riggs

    it depends on how far they get in this years playoffs

    The Jazz really are pretty likeable without Boozer. Deron is the isht, Brewer is the insanely atheletic SG who can do everything but shoot, Memo is the goofy Euro Elvis look-a-like with a sweet stroke, and Millsap is the overacheing/undersized bruiser. Its a Player Option, so Booz would have to opt out Jukai, and I don’t see him getting the money he’s expecting this offseason. So the Jazz’ only chance of getting rid of him would be a sign and trade, but then they’d have to take on some other contracts. Their gonna be in a tight squeeze either way, and I have to think that atleast one of Millsap, Brewer, or Memo will get away, unless Booz opts out and signs somewhere else(which is still a possibility).

    No one cares…

    Maybe none of the idiots in Rome do…

    Jazz can do without Boozer. He’s insanely injury prone, and the Jazz have won w/o him for most of this season. Millsap has proven he’s a beast in the paint and can take over Boozer’s role. Okur is a must keep.

    Any team, in any sport only wins it all with a united group of skilled individuals working for a common goal, OFTEN at the expense of personal targets and pursuits (ie Scottie Pippen’s contract/self-value issues during the dynasty run – the 2nd one moreso). Sometimes it takes a few seasons – see Houston 97/98 – and in some cases it can take a mere 100 games – see Celtics circa 2007/08. In any event this Utah team seem close to the mark this year, but they would have to overcome the ‘unity’ of such teams as the Spurs and Lakers out West and in the East you have Boston and Cleveland looking stronger as teams with ‘sole purpose’ coming into these last few weeks of reg. season activity.

    Millsap(Utah) > Boozer(Utah) > me(DE) > Sean Williams(NJ)

  • James aka…

    Doesn’t sean williams get the reflected glory of his talented and beautiful spouse (even if the computer monitor he destroyed equals her next contract)?

    keep brewer and millsap, they are more promising and memo+bozzer= a good sign and trade

  • lilblue4rmthaO

    Boozer should of stayed with the King in Cleveland

  • L33tSauce

    Cleveland shouldn’t have cried so much when he left. It’s a business. And that saying is typically in the benefit of the franchise, not the player.
