Report: Grizzlies Said No to Boozer, Yes to Z-Bo

They are who we thought they were: “The hottest Carlos Boozer tale to blip onto the radar this week: Sources say Memphis had the option of trading for Boozer instead of Zach Randolph earlier this month. Yet the Grizz decided, apparently with considerable input from coach Lionel Hollins, that Boozer would have been less than thrilled to play out the final season of his contract in Graceland, thus convincing them that Randolph — starting over for the third time — would be more productive.”

    actually makes sense. randolph needs the grizz, it’s really his last chance to try to salvage his rep. boozer on the other hand, would have looked for the 1st way out.

    So they thought Boozer would have been a bigger distraction than Z-Bo?

    Man, Boozer seems to be one of the most unlike players in the league. Kinda deserves it though

    Listen people, Memphis is a gangster-ass city that needs gangster-ass players. Carlos Boozer went to Duke. Nuff said.

    They are going to lose 50 games regardless of whether Boozer or Z-Bo plays for them, so who cares?

    This is only a contract issue. Z-Bo still has multiple years left on his guaranteed deal. Boozer is a free agent at the end of the upcoming season. It makes little financial sense to trade for an expriring contract of a player that’s actually a commodity (when he plays) and get nothing in return.
