With Jazz training camp looming at the end of the month, everybody Is wondering whether Carlos Boozer will actually end up coming to training camp.
Boozer has been pushing for a trade, but now--with nothing apparently in the works--it appears Boozer will still be a Jazzman, at least at the beginning of the season.
Wednesday on The Jim Rome Show, Jazzman Deron Williams discussed what he thinks Boozer's mindset will be and how much Boozer will have to do to rebuild relationships on the Jazz.
"I think he's a little frustrated that he didn't get a deal done. But you know, there's always time for that. It's a big year for him now," Williams said.
He continued, "[Boozer] went on the radio and said he wanted to play elsewhere, but, you know, if he feels that way, I feel sorry for him. But he opted in and he's a member of this team, and regardless if you like somebody on or off the court, as far as I'm concerned, I'm going to play with them regardless, 'cause I want to win."
Boozer opted to play out the final year of his Jazz contract and will be paid $12.7 million this season.
