    Report: Bulls reluctant to amnesty Boozer; Tuesday deadline

    Money is tight as Carmelo Anthony heads into free agency.

    It must make Anthony crazy, what with Phil Jackson calling him out again in public to take a pay cut to return to the Knicks. And then Melo’s top suitors, starting one minute after midnight Monday night, still trying to find ways to come up with the kind of cash that will make Anthony want to uproot his family and move away from the NBA’s No. 1 stage.

    The Bulls have not given any indication that they’re going to create the cap space for Anthony by using their one-time amnesty clause on Carlos Boozer. Inside the team’s executive offices, there was a genuine fear as of Friday that owner Jerry Reinsdorf won’t give his go-ahead to have Boozer’s $16.8 million lopped off the books. He’s as opposed to paying a player to walk away as he is to forking over even a dime in luxury tax.

    I believe this to be true....it's a known fact how cheap Bulls ownership is....

    Its gonna be a huge issue for him to pay Boozer 17 million to go away....

    Nothing about that is surprising, based on what we've seen from Jerry Reinsdorf all of these years. Daily News or not this is pretty much a no brainer.

    "I'm an artist.

    Dolan focusing on his music career is the best thing to happen to the Knicks in 15 years.

    that's bad news if Chi keeps Boozer.

    Not necessarily, it just means that Melo's path to the Bulls would have to go through a sign and trade with the Knicks. This would be great for the Knicks if they have to lose Melo because Phil would hold all of the cards. Boozer would cost the Knicks $40M next season between his salary and the luxury tax expenses he would contribute to.

    Can you say, Boozer, Mirotic + 1st round pick/s?

    No team should take Boozer back at his current cap rate even if they're not going anywhere. You can buy more first rounders w/ $17 mill than taking back Boozer.

    For free? Cap space only?

    I tend to think they would want something more. Butler... Mirotic... future picks... something... anything...

    You always eliminate the Bulls from any big FA signing, that's a rule!
