jazz selling?

Not actually anything there yet, but something to keep an eye on. Easy to see that the Cavs could have interest in Boozer, Okur, Kirilenko, or Millsap. No comment on how I would feel about any of those players.

Okur might actually fit the Cavs well. Perimeter shooting big man who is essentially a seven-footer (6'-11"). Doesn't bring a ton in the way of defense, and I'd be leery of letting him guard more athletic PFs. But he can slide over to the four, park it on the sideline and wait for the kickout. Career 37% 3PT shooter. Okur is an option, but I'd still rather have Jamison or Murphy over Okur.

Can't see Boozer ending up back on the Cavs, simply because if the Jazz move him, they're trying to get something for him before he would possibly bolt this summer. So they'd be looking for young players with significant upside or high draft picks. To that end, the Cavs can offer D-block, Hix, Boobie and a bottom-five first rounder.

Kirilenko is a SF, makes a ton of money, is always hurt, and the Cavs have a teensy bit of depth at that position with Jamario Moon and that other dude from Akron. Not a good fit.

The Jazz probably consider Millsap a building block for the future, so I can't see them moving him unless it's for a better building block.
