Although Toronto's desire to upgrade its front line is an open secret -- as confirmed by their long-running interest in trading for the Los Angeles Lakers' Pau Gasol before Gasol's foot injury this week -- it's believed that the luxury-tax implications of trading for Boozer could ultimately dissuade the Raptors from such a deal, even if Chicago proved willing.
Why? Seems like a pointless trade for both teams.
I think it weakens the Bulls.
I would love to see Bargnani play for Tom Thibodeau though. I think it might be too late for Bargnani. Too many bad habits. Too difficult to change. It's such a shame Toronto did such a bad job developing Bargnani. But if anyone can turn things around for Bargnani, Tom Thibodeau has to be one of the best, if no the very best, options to do so. I wouldn't take the risk if I were Chicago but I would love see Bargnani get one last chance in a top quality defensive orientated team under a coach like Thibodeau.
