Bulls, Boozer Agree Five Years, $76 M

According to the Chicago Tribune, Carlos Boozer has agreed to a five-year, $76 million contract with the Bulls. The Deseret News reports that the Jazz are hoping to get something in return for Boozer with a sign-and-trade package. Boozer is going to reach out to LeBron about joining him in Chicago, but it’s doubtful that Boozer has any pull at this stage in the game.

    Boozer is going to “reach out to Lebron?” That is beyond laughable since Boozer could have just stayed in Cleveland in the first place. LOL

    agreed @jeth….if Deng can stay healthy he and Boozer are a great pair of forwards for Derrick Rose to work off of….really good consolation prize

    Hey, long as we don’t walk away empty-handed, I’m happy.

    Bulls might as well sign nobody… 5 years 76 Mil, thats waaayyy too much! Wait till next see to see what deron has done for booz! Overrated!

    * till next season

    @rikson 5 years 76 Mil is such a good price for calos boozer. even 80Mil isn’t over priced for him. Rudy gay can get that kind of money, and he is only a one-dimension scorer. think about this, would you rather pay 123mil for joe joshnson for 6 yrs or this carlos boozer deal ?

    Boozer is a very good fit too. he addresses bulls big weakness- lack of insider scoring threat.
