Why does Chicago want to trade Boozer for two far worse players?
Bass and Gooden combine to make $14 million a season for as long as Boozer's contract lasts. The Bulls don't save nearly enough money (around $3 million) to justify the talent downgrade.
I don't see why Milwaukee would want to take on Boozer's salary either. Dalembert comes off the books this summer. So they'd be trading Gooden's $7 million for Boozer's $15-16 million for the next two years. Boozer is an upgrade but he is not a big enough upgrade for Milwaukee to justify that type of payroll increase. Especially when you consider they still have Ilyasova on a big contract and several young big men who all need minutes already available there.
It looks to me like Boston is the only team making out in this deal.
Yeah terrible deal for the Bulls. Could we get Gooden and Dalembert together?
