Utah Jazz: Boozer keeps talking trade

Another day, another Carlos Boozer interview in another of his preferred future playing destinations.

And, no, it wasn't in Utah.

On Tuesday, however, Boozer wasn't quite as revealing with a Chicago sports radio station as he was in Miami on Monday when he went on about, among other things, how much he loves the South Beach area, how he won't be playing again for the Utah Jazz, how tough the economy is, how well he personally did in this past spring's playoffs, how healthy his body is, and how anxious he is to find out what team he'll be traded to before next season.

While talking to ESPN 1000 in Chicago, where he helped Corey Maggette run a basketball camp, Boozer even seemed to back-pedal on an important point he made to Miami's WQAM on Monday.

In Florida, Boozer replied to a question about whether or not he could envision himself playing again in Utah with a simple "Um, no" response. But asked during his interview on the "Waddle & Silvy Show" if there would be "hard feelings" should he return to the Jazz, the power forward sounded like he'd changed his stance a bit.

"No," he replied. "Not at all."

Boozer also reiterated that he has allegedly been asked by Jazz management to zip his lips about the whole trade process.

"I can't speak about it anymore," he said. "I was asked to let my agent and the Jazz take care of the situation and I'm gonna leave it at that. I'll let them take care of it and you guys will probably hear something before I do."

Boozer said that his agent, Rob Pelinka, is "definitely trying to help the Jazz do what they want to do," adding that he's just playing the waiting game for now as the Jazz weigh their options "by talking to different teams and seeing what will make their team better."

A month ago, Boozer opted in for the last season and final $12.7 million of his six-year contract with the Jazz. He said he really doesn't have a hunch as to what team he might be dealt to, nor when it will happen.

"Obviously, I'd have liked for it to have been over, of course, but at the same time I know whatever happens is meant to be and I look forward to it," Boozer said. "I'm just working my butt off ready for a monster season. And I'm just looking forward to dominating in the NBA again."

Boozer added that "a few" players have supposedly tried to recruit him. That, however, seemingly would have little effect on a possible trade scenario, seeing as he is not a free agent and does not have a binding opinion in a potential deal.

It's practically inconceivable how big a douche this guy is.

Why is it that Duke guys never have any loyalty? Grant Hill stole over 90 million from Orlando, then split for Phoenix because he wanted a shot at a title. He should have played at least two years for the Magic for free after all that.

And then Orlando goes to the Finals this year.

Mr. Hill got what he deserved. I hope Boozer gets what he deserves - by winding up in Memphis.
