Boozer Trade Idea, Involving Bulls AND Heat

Ok, I might get killed for this and I might not.  I actually suggested it in a comment on a fanshot yesterday; however, now I'm getting used to the idea and liking it more and  Without further adieu...


Chicago gets:

Michael Beasley and Mark Blount

Utah gets:

Tyrus Thomas and Jerome James

Miami gets:

Carlos Boozer

Simple as that.  Think about it.  It's obvious that the Bulls aren't  really that sold on Carlos Boozer as a player; if they're looking into him it's only to replace BG's scoring for one year and to gain increased flexibility for the (insert movie preview announcer voice here) "the summer of 2010."  Why not retain that flexibility and get a power forward that's going to be a beast on offense for the foreseeable future?

Mark Blount is a bigger expiring contract than Jerome James, and if we can find a way to salary dump Hinrich this season to Portland in the fabled Blake + Outlaw trade then we will have room to sign a D-Wade, LeBron (yeah right) or, and most likely, Joe Johnson.  That still gives us a young, solid line-up heading into the prime of Rose and Beasley's careers.  Take a look:

PG: Rose

SG: Johnson

SF:  Deng

PF:  Beasley

C:  Noah

Then we have some combo of Blake, James Johnson, Taj Gibson, possibly John Salmons or Outlaw (and another draft pick) coming off the bench. 

Utah does this for the salary relief (according to ESPN Trade Machine this cuts $1 million off their payroll, plus Jerome James' expiring/insurance covered contract) and Miami does this for obvious Booze-ing reasons.

What do you guys think?  I realize it's not the most ideal situation or what everyone was hoping for (i.e. Bosh or Amar'e) but I think it's an interesting idea that has not been talked about.
