Boozer left a lot to be desired after his disappearance in the playoffs last season, which left a bad taste in the mouths of a lot of Bulls fans.
It's better not to start the season with questions of "can he perform when it counts?" Let's do both Boozer and Bulls fans a favor and ship him off.
High-flying defensive maestro Josh Smith is disgruntled in Atlanta, so a swap with the Hawks could be possible. Josh Smith would thrive in the Bulls' system.
For salary purposes, the Bulls could package Carlos Boozer's $14.4 million with Ronnie Brewer's $4.79 million in exchange for Josh Smith's $11.7 million and Marvin Williams' $7.26 million.
Marvin Williams hasn't developed as fast as the Hawks have hoped, and the Bulls could use a third option at power forward since Kurt Thomas is a free agent. Also, with Jamal Crawford testing the free-agent market, the Hawks probably wouldn't mind adding a backup two-guard like Ronnie Brewer. A trade match made in heaven.
