Default Boozer may not opt out

http://deseretnews.com/article/1,514...8,00.html?pg=2

I doubt he doesn't opt out, even if he plays poorly in the off season. He'll be able to get a bigger contract than he has now either way.

Unless he gets injured and his health is questionable in the off-season he's definitely opting out. They're saying Detroit might go after him now. Can't see them wanting him though.

I agree. Like I said in the "bad news" thread. Denver got better, and Detroit wants out bigs. Milsap already plays for them under the pseudonym Maxiell...but I bet they would like Okur back or Boozer is they can afford him. Still, if Boozer doesn't play D for Sloan he won't play it for a defensive minded Detroit.

Exactly why I don't see them wanting him. Better off waiting for Bosh.

I wouldn't say Bosh is much better on the defensive end.

So, if Boozer were to opt out, and Okur doesn't, does that mean no more Memo?

If Utah signs Boozer...probably no more Memo after one more year together.

They might have to trade Okur if Boozer gets max. No team in the league has 3 max guys.
