Devin Harris Wants Carlos Boozer on His Team

Get in line, Devin: ‘We need more of an athlete, someone who can rebound and block shots, someone who can complement Brook really nicely. Regarding Boozer, Roberts pointed out that Boozer looks like he’ll choose between Detroit and New Jersey…’I definitely hope he picks New Jersey. I think he fits well in us, he’s a 4 man who obviously can complement Brook real well. He can run the screen and roll. He’s a rebounder that we need and he can also space the floor as well. I’ve kind of played with Boozer a couple of times over the summer so I know what he’s capable of doing obviously, going…playing against him. He’s a talented player so he fits right with what we do.’ Asked if he is willing to recruit the Jazz big man, Harris laughed and answered…’I’ll do what needs to be done.’”

    Why? All he does is play well for one season, suck in the playoffs, and then sit out the next year due to injuries. Two words: Contract Player.

    that move will halt brook lopez his development so it’s good short term bad long term. They need a tough sollid devensive big who can hit the open jumper

    “Devin: ‘We need more of an athlete, someone who can rebound and block shots,” block shots? boozer rarely blocks shots.

    I agree with ab_40. Wait, get David Lee!

    Better let Lopez develop with lots of playing time and get a real center and a true backup for Vince. But that’s just my two cents (euro-cents that is)

    Carlos Boozer doesnt give a sh!t what Devin wants. Carlos Boozer wants Carlos Boozer to get paid. Such a b!tch, but i would be the EXACT same way if i had a chance. Fu(k team loyalty, whoever pays me slays me

    Tim Thomas demands a starting spot on the All-Contract team. NOW.

    is boozer opting out? why would he do that? He sucked or was injured most of the season

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com/ RV

    oh yeah, and there’s an “official” jazz fan blog that claims Morey (from houston) is interested in Boozer. Apparently they know someone who knows someone, that type of thing..

    flashbacks of Kenny Anderson and Derrick Coleman. One of the many entertaining teams of the early 90s.

    Boozer belongs in the swamp. That team is sinking back to where it should be.

    boozer cant hold dc’s jock strap

  • wilz

    um…block shots? a whopping 0.4 over his carreer.
    just glad to hear he’s not going to toronto..

    Boozer is garbage. The team that signs him will be screwed halfway through his next deal, by which time it’ll be obvious that he’s barely worth starting. The Nets need to look at how Elton Brand worked out in Philly.
    I LOVE Devin the dude but WTF is he thinking here?

  • JoeMaMa

    I’d love to see him screw Utah the way he screwed Cleveland. Not because I don’t like Utah; I just like seeing angry Mormons.

  • http://nationofmillions.ca ciolkstar

    ^except in this case “screwing Utah” would be NOT opting out?

  • http://slamonline.com QX

    Exactly, ciolkstar. lol

  • bdf

    so you don’t hate utah, just mormons?
