Carlos Boozer, Jazz (PO) (16.2 ppg, 10.4 rpg) Age: 27.
All indications are that Boozer will likely opt out of the final year of his deal with the Jazz that would pay him $12.6 million for next season. With Paul Milsap a restricted free agent and likely draw some serious interest from other teams, Utah is stuck with a major decision; try to re-sign Boozer for about $15 million a year or bring back Milsap at half the price. The likely choice will be for the Jazz to part ways with Boozer and bring back Milsap. That leaves one likely destination for Booze…

Prediction: signs 5 year, $75 million with Pistons.

 

David Lee, Knicks (RFA) (16 ppg, 11.7 rpg) Age: 26.
Lee has emerged into one of the most underrated players in the NBA. He plays hard every night, does all the dirty work down low, and has a knack for cleaning up the glass. Several teams will likely inquire about his services, and the Knicks may be willing to let him go to keep with their plan of having plenty of cap space for the 2010 offseason so they can make a serious run at LeBron, D-Wade, or Chris Bosh. However, New York would be idiotic to let him go and not get anything in return, so expect a sign and trade to be worked out that might net the Knicks some expiring contracts, young players, and/or draft picks.

Prediction: signs 6 year, $58 million with Knicks as part of sign-and-trade 
 

Paul Millsap, Jazz (RFA) (13.5 ppg, 8.5 rpg) Age: 24.
What happens with Millsap directly coincides with Boozer’s decision to opt out or not. Jazz ownership has already stated that they will match any offer another team makes to Millsap, who was very effective in filling in for Boozer after he suffered his season-ending injury. Again, Millsap will be the cheaper option for Utah and likely won’t be pried out of the Salt Lake City.

Prediction: re-signs 5 year, $38 million with Jazz
