The CEO of the Utah Jazz is willing to keep the team in luxury tax... paying territory as long as it won't financially hinder the other companies owned by the Miller family.
Greg Miller, speaking to Salt Lake City morning radio show "DJ and PK", didn't mention Carlos Boozer by name but seemed to infer a strong desire to re-sign the soon-to-be free agent with these comments:
"There is an inherent appeal to me in keeping this team intact to the greatest degree possible because I really feel that we've matured as a team this year. I think if you look at the reaction the Utah Jazz players gave in their interviews after Game 1 with LA you can really see evidence of them coming together as a team and not being intimidated. But they know that they've got the ability to be contenders and it's not so much kind of the 'deer in the headlights' look that we've had at times in the past. But it's more of an anger that with one or two plays, the outcome of that game could've been very different. And they realize that. So they're very tenacious.
They're more than tenacious. They're believing and they're jelling as a team. And it's taken us a while to rebuild to get to that level since the Stockton - Malone era. And so I'd like to do everything I can to preserve that and hopefully we'll be able to get that done."
