According to 100 scenarios I went through in ESPN's FA Slot Machine, (which are based on what ESPN analysts think are the most likely scenarios this off-season) this is where Boozer ended up in them. Thought this may be some good off-season fodder.

Utah: 34%
Miami: 25%
Chicago: 13%
NY Knicks: 9%
NJ Nets: 8%
Detroit: 6%
Washington: 4%
Houston: 1%


Thoughts? Do you still think Utah is still Boozer's most likely destination?

You did that 100 times? Dude, you've got too much free time on your hands. Find a hobby for ****'s sake.
Whichever team loses out on getting Lebron, Bosh, Wade, or Stoudamire will throw a large sum of change at Boozer and get him - maybe Chicago, NY, NJ, or Miami.

I don't see a scenario where Boozer returns to the Jazz unless they are able to unload Memo or AK

I knew somebody would post something like that. It only took me about 15-20 minutes, I wasn't doing it all night. But thanks for your concern.

So what if I'm a nerd, aren't we all for regularly posting/moderating on a message board? :cool:
I'm not expecting any of the first-tier guys to actually move so I think it makes sense that Boozer will end up elsewhere if for no other reason than that. Miami is the obvious choice.
I see Lebron/Wade/Bosh/Stoudemire pairing off in some form leaving Boozer to the markets he isn't interested in. But I expect him to start quietly groveling for Miami at some point. And he does have a big chip he can play which would be to lower his price considerably. He might entice Miami with a lower offer that would enable them to add another big piece along with Wade. Wade/Stoudemire/Johnson is not feasible, for example, but Wade/Boozer/Johnson could be. That might mean an S&T of Beasley to us, or various other S&T's, with both Boozer and Johnson coming down slightly on their stickers to form the next Big 3.
