Well, maybe Don Nelson shouldn't have been fired when he was.

When Carlos Boozer faked out the Cavaliers and signed a big-money deal with Utah his agent was Rob Pelinka.


According to sources in Cleveland, Boozer and Pelinka approached the Cavs about letting him out of the last year of his contract June 30. Boozer could have been Cleveland's next season for $695,000, but the Cavaliers did not pick up their option after, the club said, Boozer had committed to re-signing for the team's full midlevel exception -- somewhere around six years and $40 million.

Boozer agreed to a six-year, $68 million contract with the Utah Jazz.

Maybe Magic shoulda fired him, rather than let him undercut him behind his back.

Twas a tricky situation with Booz.
Being a 2nd rounder who busted out, that team option would lock him into a serious underpay ($9M below his market rate).  If CLE picked that $700K up, Booz woulda been unhappy for a season and not re-signed with them.  But I believe CLE was limited to offering the MLE, averaging just $6.5M.  But his market rate turned out to be over $11M per year average.

So staying Cavs-side was always a losing proposition for Booz.  Either lose roughly $9M with the one year option, and risking injury for a year before cashing in.  Or lose $28M over the next 6 years, by taking the Cavs full MLE.  Yes, he could have signed a shorter MLE deal.  But say a 2/$12M with 3rd year player option (to get him a guaranteed ~$19M, and some injury insurance), was barely more for the 2 years that he ended up making in 1 year with UTA.

The 2/$12M MLE would have gotten him the same money as the 1 year CLE team option and then signing with UTA for $11M, but with the injury risk and almost no guaranteed money if he played poorly (or got injured). 

Bottom Line: CLE took a risk trying to lock Booz into a long-term underpay, to help him get out of an unfortunate short-term underpay.  Und you have a binding agreement when you have a signed legal contract.  Booz and Pachinko did what was best for Booz and cashed in while they/he could. 

Booz was injured 3 of his 6 years in UTA.
Played well when healthy.  Two seasons played less than 40 games.  Unusually, his first 2 seasons in CLE were his best FT% years.
