Report: Fading PF Carlos Boozer targeted by several teams


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/6/2015) Several teams are in the mix to land veteran power forward Carlos Boozer, sources have told ESPN, which is claiming he has had conversations with the Clippers, Spurs, Mavericks and Raptors.

The 33-year-old Boozer showed signs of age last season with the Lakers. He averaged just 11.8 points a game, his lowest since his rookie year, and a career-worst 6.8 rebounds. But he was limited to 24 minutes per game and shot nearly 50 percent from the floor.


Report: Heat targeting PG J.J. Barea, PF Carlos Boozer


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/2/2015) According to reports, the Heat are on the verge of signing veteran point guard J.J. Barea to a backup role and are exploring the possibility of acquiring power forward Carlos Boozer, per the Palm Beach Post

The Heat are crowded at guard, which may make Mario Chalmers the odd-man out given his $4.3 million salary. Barea averaged 7.5 points and 3.7 assists for the Mavericks last season. 

Boozer could be viewed as a replacement for Chris Andersen. Boozer is not a strong defender, but did average 17.8 points last season for the Lakers. 


Carlos Boozer wants to return to Lakers if team will compete


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

"If they have a team that could compete, I'd love to come back," Boozer said.

Despite the struggles throughout the season, Boozer said coach Byron Scott did a good job of fostering a winning environment.

Boozer added that he would be accepting of a bench role if that's what it takes to be on a winning team.

Lakers to sit Carlos Boozer, Jordan Hill for next 4-5 games

Lakers' Boozer, Davis to keep coming off the bench


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2015) Though the Lakers were unable to defeat the Bucks on Wednesday, coach Byron Scott was pleased with how veterans Carlos Boozer and Ed Davis played coming off the bench.

Boozer posted 28 points and Davis brought down 20 rebounds in a 113-105 loss. With the way they played, a case can be made for both Boozer and Davis to re-enter the starting lineup. However, coach Byron Scott appears to be keeping them in their current roles.

“I like that combination and they play together,” Scott said, via the Los Angeles Daily News. “There’s an argument for everything. I don’t pay a lot of attention to that. I like the way they play together. Both of them off the bench provide us with something special.”

The Lakers are near the bottom of the NBA at 13-36 this season and seem committed to developing the young players on the roster. However, the Lakers are receiving some solid support from these two veterans, who are providing some energy in relief roles.

“We play well together," Boozer said. "The more Ed and I play together, the more we play off each other,” Boozer said. He plays above the rim. Hes’ a very underrated passer. He’s a very good player.”
