I'm just shocked that Utah signed a black guy. No big loss, really, especially when you consider the money he's going to get. They still have alot of maneuverability and young talent to go get some Horace Grant-type to play the 4. Utah is spending aton of dough on a couple of guys who are not that good in Okur and Boozer. Is Scott Layden back working there?

How old is your friend? 12?
Paxson screwed up. I would trust an agent about as much as a lwayer.
What is really bad about this is the Cavs could have had Boozer playing for chump change this coming season (600k+) had they exercised their option on Boozer. Boozer promised the cavs if they dropped the option (supposedly Boozer needed some money quickly) he would sign their max deal. The Cavs took Boozer's word, agreed to drop the option, and Boozer leaves them in the middle of the night for a bigger pay day.
