Utah Jazz Notes, Quotes 2009-03-30
--Jazz forward Carlos Boozer has filed for divorce in Miami-Dade County circuit court from his wife of 6 1/2 years, CeCe. The Boozers' marriage was described as "irretrievably broken" in court documents obtained by The Salt Lake Tribune.

Howard M. Rudolph, Boozer's attorney in West Palm Beach, Fla., confirmed the filing. "He's a good guy and his wife's a decent person, too," Rudolph said. "We're going to try to work it out in an amicable way."

The Boozers have three young sons -- 2-year-old Carmani and twin 19-month olds Cameron and Cayden -- and Boozer's petition requests shared parental responsibility, with allowances made for his basketball schedule. The petition states that the Boozers' house in Miami is listed for sale, with Boozer requesting that CeCe have temporary use of the residence while Carlos has "exclusive use, possession and ownership" of their home in Salt Lake City.

Boozer additionally asks that neither party be designated the "primary residential custodian" of the children and offers to pay appropriate child support, including the possibility of setting up trusts for the children. Their oldest son, Carmani, was diagnosed with sickle cell disease and underwent a bone marrow transplant in September 2007. The stem cells used in the transplant were harvested from Boozer's twin sons.

--Second-year center Kyrylo Fesenko has been recalled from the Utah Flash of the NBA Development League. The Jazz wanted rookie Kosta Koufos to get some playing time, which wasn't happening with them. So they sent Koufos to the Flash. Because an NBA team can't have more than two players in the D-League at one time, Fesenko was recalled. Fesenko, who won't turn 23 until December, has played 213 minutes in 27 games during almost two full seasons with the Jazz. It's time to have a greater impact, he said: "I am here now, and I think I am ready to prove something to somebody."

QUOTE TO NOTE: "He looks better in a basketball uniform than he does in a suit." -- Jazz vice president of basketball operations Kevin O'Connor, explaining why seldom-used rookie Kosta Koufos was assigned to the Utah Flash of the D-League.
