The Jazz lost Boozer and Korver this summer, and the Deseret News reports that D-Will is less than thrilled with this new reality in Utah: “While addressing media at his annual charity golf tournament Saturday, Deron Williams admitted to being somewhat ‘frustrated.’ And the All-Star point guard wasn’t referring to a shanked drive or missed putt. Rather, Williams was sharing his feelings in the aftermath of the Utah Jazz losing their leading scorer, top rebounder and best 3-point shooter to the Chicago Bulls in a two-day span. ‘It was tough to see Booz (Carlos Boozer) and Kyle (Korver) go,’ Williams said. ‘But they made business decisions and you have to live with them.’ And learn to live without them on the court and locker room, too. That’s the hard part for Williams. ‘Any time you lose two guys like that you’re going to be frustrated,’ said Williams. ‘But … it’s a business, and that’s the way it went.’ Williams sent texts to both Boozer and Korver after finding out they were Chicago-bound and said he’s ‘happy for both of those guys.’ Asked about how busy this past week had been for the Jazz during the free-agency frenzy, Williams joked, ‘Well, it hasn’t been a really busy week for us. It’s been a real busy week for some of our former teammates.”‘
