휴스턴 지역 라디오에 의하면, 로켓츠와 재즈가 아테스트 + 스콜라 <-> 부저 딜을 논의중이라고 합니다.

유타 입장에서는 BQ가 뛰어난 스콜라는 유타 시스템에 충분히 적응할 것이고, 아테스트가 문제이긴 하지만, 샐러리가 빡빡하고 밀샙의 연장계약을 남겨두고 있는 이상, 아테스트의 만기계약은 매력적인 카드입니다.

하지만, 로켓츠 입장에서는 이 딜에 관심을 보일 이유가 없습니다. 부저는 유타에서 5년간 뛰면서 381 게임중 67%인 251 게임만 소화하고 있고, 안그래도 인저리 팀인 로켓츠가 또다른 인저리 프론 선수를 데려오려는 이유는? 거기다 현재 부상으로 게임에 나오고 있지 못한 선수를 말이죠.

물론 로켓츠는 하킴 시대의 오티스 도프 이후 항상 4번 포지션이 구멍이었습니다. 하지만 현재의 스콜라 - 랜드리 PF 콤비는 NBA에서도 상당히 경쟁력있는 생산력을 보여주고 있습니다. 거기다 부저 - 야오의 인사이드가 제 역할을 하더라도, 티맥은 부상에 시달리고 있고, 인사이드를 제대로 활용할 가드진은 아주 취약합니다. 또한 아테스트는 그나마 야오를 제외한 득점 옵션으로서 제 역할을 해주고 있는 선수죠.

훕스월드의 빌 잉그램 말처럼, 이번 루머는 데드라인을 앞둔 많고 많은 루머 그이상 그이하도 아닌 듯 합니다.

Rockets vs. Jazz: How they match up


Center: Okur vs. Yao

Mehmet Okur has had a career year, with too much range for most centers and too much size for most forwards. Yao Ming, the league's top-scoring center each of the past two seasons, has returned to his offensive form before his injury. Yao likely will match up more against Carlos Boozer to be able to stay inside, with Okur, Boozer and Jarron Collins taking turns on Yao.

Edge: Rockets

Power forward: Boozer vs. Hayes

As much as anyone, Boozer's relative good health this season has keyed the Jazz turnaround. Boozer was an All-Star this season and has had a breakthrough season. The Rockets' Chuck Hayes, in just his second season, became the starter as a complement to Yao Ming. An energetic rebounder and strong defender, he added an ability to cut to take passes inside from Tracy McGrady.

Edge: Jazz.

Small forward: Kirilenko vs. Battier

With Andrei Kirilenko coming back Monday, the Jazz get an active shot-blocking and rebounding force, even though he has struggled at times. The Rockets' Shane Battier has had a similar impact defensively and his best season from beyond the arc.

Edge: Rockets.

Shooting guard: Fisher vs. McGrady

After one season with Golden State, Derek Fisher, long a clutch postseason player, has helped stabilize the Jazz's backcourt even though he struggled with his shot in April. Tracy McGrady came back from last season's back spasms to become as much of a driving force as a playmaker as he is as a scorer.

Edge: Rockets.

Point guard: Williams vs. Alston

Deron Williams has grown into one of the league's top young point guards, enough for Jerry Sloan to go back to much of the offense as he ran it with John Stockton as the Jazz have become one of the league's most efficient offensive teams. Rafer Alston has done well running the offense and limiting turnovers, but he can be incredibly streaky with his shot.

Edge: Jazz.

Bench: Jazz vs. Rockets

With Andrei Kirilenko and Gordan Giricek returning from injuries, Matt Harpring moves back to coming off the bench and the Jazz get deeper and stronger off the bench. Jarron Collins can add some defensive help on Yao Ming. Luther Head had an outstanding season from 3-point range with Juwan Howard and Dikembe Mutombo often providing a needed lift. Basically, Head and Harpring, and Giricek and Howard cancel each other out, with Mutombo getting the edge on Collins.

Edge: Rockets.

Coach: Sloan vs. Van Gundy

Jerry Sloan is fourth in wins among active coaches, twice taking the Jazz to the NBA Finals. Despite missing Yao, McGrady or both for half the season, Jeff Van Gundy has led the Rockets to their best record since 1996-97, and he also has taken a team — the 1999 New York Knicks — to the Finals. Both have their teams playing their way and seem to have the complete confidence of their players, with Sloan getting the edge in seniority.

Edge: Jazz.

Prediction: Rockets in seven.
