PF Carlos Boozer fitting in well early with Lakers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) The Lakers raised more than a few eyebrows when they acquired veteran forward Carlos Boozer with an amnesty bid of $3.2 million, especially when one considers they drafted fellow forward Julius Randle with the seventh overall pick. But Byron Scott plans on playing Boozer extensively.

Included will be the Thursday night preseason game against Golden State. Scott claims that Boozer will continue the consistent production that has resulted in a career averages of 13.7 points and 8.3 rebounds per game, as well as 45.6 percent shooting.

"Carlos has got a lot of experience and understands how to play," Scott told the Los Angeles Daily News. "He's a good communicator out there. We knew he's a guy who can make mid-range shots. We know we can also throw it to him in the post a little bit."

Boozer performed well in a Monday night defeat of Denver in which he totaled six points, four rebounds and three assists while establishing an on-court relationship with veteran stars Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash.

Lakers pick up Carlos Boozer through amnesty bid


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/17/2014) The Lakers have submitted the highest bid for free agent forward Carlos Boozer, ESPN's Marc Stein reports Thursday. Boozer was amnestied by Chicago on Tuesday after averaging 13.7 points and 8.3 rebounds last season. He also shot 45.6 percent from the field and 76.7 percent from the floor in 76 games.

Bulls use amnesty provision to release Carlos Boozer


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(7/15/2014) In an expected move to clear his contract from their books, the Bulls waived Carlos Boozer using the amnesty provision. Boozer will now enter a blind bidding process during which teams with cap space can bid on his services starting at his minimum salary. If he clears waivers, Boozer will be a free agent.

Boozer averaged 13.7 points and 8.3 rebounds for the Bulls last season but became redundant with the emergence of Taj Gibson and the free agency arrivals of Pau Gasol and Nikola Mirotic. 


Reports: Carlos Boozer not returning to Bulls


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/3/2014) The Bulls are not expected to bring Carlos Boozer back for the 2014-15 season, according to multiple reports Wednesday.

Though Boozer is owed $16.8 million for next season, multiple outlets report the Bulls are already preparing to move on from him. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Boozer is expected to be waived via the amnesty provision at some point soon, and Boozer's agents have already been informed.

ESPN.com also reports the Bulls could still attempt to work a sign-and-trade deal including Boozer, but they have found no takers so far. Boozer is entering the final year of a five-year, $75 million contract. If the Bulls do use the amnesty provision on him, any team with cap space could put in a bid for the final year of his services.

Boozer has been maligned for his defense, and has even lost playing time as a result. He averaged 13.7 points and 8.3 rebounds per game in 2013-14, his lowest averages since he was a rookie.


Report: Taj Gibson likely to start over Carlos Boozer next season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2014) Bulls forward Taj Gibson was told by the coaching staff that he should start preparing this offseason to be a starter in 2014-15, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Gibson will likely take over for Carlos Boozer at power forward. He made six starts at power forward, averaging 20.6 points and 9.7 rebounds per contest.

"I mean, this will be exciting," Gibson said. "This is what I've always thought about. When I started [six games] for Boozer when he was hurt during the season, I just know how excited I was, how good it felt to come to the arena."

The 28-year-old suffered a left ankle injury in an elimination game against the Bulls in late April and is in his final week of rehab. Gibson should be ready for the start of next season.

Carlos Boozer doubles up again


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2014) Bulls forward Carlos Boozer continues to play a limited role, but he still managed to record his second double-double in a row Wednesday in a 102-94 win over the 76ers.

Boozer played just 24 minutes for the third straight game, but was active enough to record the double-double. He scored 12 points on 5 of 9 shooting and added 11 rebounds, along with two assists and a block in the win.

Boozer remains the starter at power forward for the Bulls, but Taj Gibson has clearly surpassed him in the rotation at this point. He is averaging 11.8 points and 7.8 rebounds in 26.6 minutes per game over the last five. 


Carlos Boozer doubles up vs. Hawks


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
