yep. ^^^

Each player has his role and AK hopefully has found his role and hopefully is happy with it even though it is a bit of a downgrade than it was in the past.

AK definately adds dimensions to the team that nobody else on the roster can. On the court I am glad we still have him. Hope the books work out the same way.

His contract is too big... think about it, when dwill has to re sign hes gunna want some money cos hes a key player now, as will booze and okur so with ak n his huge contract we cant keep all of them, either ak has to lower his contract (if that can be done) or he will have to leave... which might not be good news for the jazz

Our moves so far--No to the Marion deal, Korver for Giricek--make me think LHM is going over the cap for one year.

http://hoopshy pe.com/salaries/utah.htm

The way I see it, summer 2009 we convince Boozer/Okur to take their player options. We try to renegotiate a deal with Williams, fail, and go with the qualifying offer.

Summer 2010 we sign Boozer and Williams to max deals, let Okur walk and get the money he deserves, and bite the bullet on AK's/Korver's last years. Next year AK can stay and take a big pay cut.

Unless we can trade AK's contract to Russia for a pile of beets and cabbage, we will be enjoying him on the court (I think he is a big part of our success, about 7-8M though). Marion would have been perfect financially for DWill. If he opts out, we sign Williams then, if he stayed, we wait one more year for him to come off the books or trade him to get the Williams deal done. Giricek was an expirer too, Korver's contract runs past Boozer, Okur, and Williams.

Unless (1) Boozer/Okur think they deserve more than their player options (which they might), or (2) I don't understand how DWill's 'qualifying offer' 09-10 works, I think we go over the cap in 2010/2011 and go for the big one. The core will have had a long and illustrious career by then.

Looking forward to being at the top the next few years along with the Lakers (gonna be a big rivalry), Hornets, (Denver? Portland?) when Spurs (Duncan), Suns (Nash/Shaq), Mavs (Kidd) loose a step too many.
