Although his contract was deemed immovable, with his recent play, that might have changed slightly. If Booz stays, the tax bill for next year could be huge, and it would be very hard to resign Deng. Why amnesty when you can maybe get back something of value?
Here are some unspecific ideas as to what can be done with Booze (obviously other than keeping him for the playoffs)
1. Trade for a backup PF/C and a lottery pick in this years draft, so Taj starts. The 2013 draft is deep in the wings, with Ben McLemore being compared to a young Ray Allen.
2. Trade for a star: Kevin Love is injured and unhappy. Dwight is playing shitty though his numbers don't show it, and will be a FA. We can throw in the CHA pick, our first rounder and/or Mirotic for either. Gasol's numbers and play are both shitty. Rudy gay is about to be moved, but we don't have much use for him.
3. Gamble in the 2014 draft. Trade him for an unprotected lotto pick in the 2014 draft (might have to take back some salary). 2 potential franchise players in andrew wiggins and jabari parker, and both at the wing positions. seems like the basketball gods did everything right except making the bulls terrible enough. If the Bulls cam move up in this draft using Booz, the top-10 protected CHA pick and our first rounder, I'd be all in for it.
What should the Bulls do with Floozer?
