Another major multi-team trade might be looming in the NBA with the Portland Trail Blazers, Utah Jazz and Chicago Bulls having discussed a deal that would be headlined by Carlos Boozer and Kirk Hinrich, according to NBA front-office sources.
stressed to ESPN.com that no deal was imminent Thursday and that both
Portland and Utah are still evaluating multiple trade scenarios. But
two sources with knowledge of the three-team proposal confirmed that
there have been substantive talks regarding a trade that would land
Boozer in Chicago, Hinrich in Portland and Tyrus Thomas in Utah.
Boozer is a better scorer… but Ty Thomas is much more athletic… and seemed to fit into what Chicago was doing. Then again, Chicago has already let Ben Gordon go… and dumping Hinrich would basically hand the keys to Derrick Rose. Which ain't a bad thing.
This is one interesting offseason.
