Miami Heat: Five Possible Trade Scenarios for Mario Chalmers and Chris Andersen

3. Trevor Booker, Utah Jazz

This potential deal is what could be one of two salary dumps that would simply clear roster space. The Jazz put together a solid second-half effort that wasn’t enough to rebound from a 17-30 start, but they may be willing to take on Andersen and Chalmers. Neither would be the central component to the team’s fortunes, but they could provide enough veteran leadership along the way to get them over the hump.

Even if that fails to materialize, they won’t have to deal with the pair after the 2015-16 campaign. That, coupled with the fact that the salary cap explodes one year from now, might be a reason for them to roll the dice.

While the Heat might have to throw in some future draft picks to get the attention of the Jazz, one player they might want is Trevor Booker, especially if a trade takes place within the next week. That’s because he would only be due $250,000 of his $4.7 million deal if he’s released before July 15.
