Gordon Monson's Tribune column this morning is not for faint of heart Jazz fans. He lays out the salary cap picture and it isn't pretty. Boozer is an unrestricted free agent next year and will probably ask for max money or close to it. The same goes for Williams (who will most certainly ask for and get max money from someone). As Gordo notes -- and I think as most Jazz fans know -- at a minimum this means we have to move AK. But I think the problem goes a bit deeper than that. Boozer, Brewer, Millsap and some of the others we're going to have to start paying bigger bucks to soon are very good, but can they lead us to a title? Especially with LA and New Orleans in the conference? I don't envy Kevin O'Connor right now, that's for sure.
