Just saw it on ESPN, 5 years 80 million


ESPN.com news services
Carlos Boozer is the latest domino to fall, agreeing to a five-year, $80 million contract with the Chicago Bulls, a source close to the negotiations told ESPN The Magazine's Ric Bucher on Wednesday.

Boozer follows agreements by premier free agents Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami, Amare Stoudemire with the Knicks and Joe Johnson in Atlanta.

The Bulls are still in the running for LeBron James, who is going to make an announcement Thursday on ESPN. But Chicago would have to do some creative financing to fit the superstar under the cap after this deal.

Boozer average 19.5 points and 11.2 rebounds per game for the Utah Jazz last season, his sixth with the team. In his eight-year career, he has averaged 17.2 points and 10.2 rebounds per contest.

Boozer's name has come up in trade discussions involving the Bulls numerous times over the past few years.

Lebron or not, the Bulls needed this. Lock down a good, all-star FA who does the one thing the Bulls haven't done in years, post scoring.

I don't think so. The Bulls could very well have a trade set up for Deng or Taj+JJ, but arne't pulling the trigger because they don't know Lebron's choice.

Yeah good signing by Chicago. LeBron needs to sign with the Knicks. That would be the best IMO.

07-07-2010, 04:54 PM
edit: 5 yrs/80 million

I think this is a great move for Chicago. You bring a guy who could have easily been swept up by the Nets and can bring you boards and instant scoring. I'm going to like watching the Bulls this season, as long as they aren't playing Miami of course.

Even with Boozers contract, we only have to move 2.5 mil or so to still add the max. Lebron is still very possible.

_Supreme_
07-07-2010, 04:55 PM
This pretty much rules out Lebron to Chicago.

It didn't look like it was happening anymore for a while anyway, but were the Bulls 100% sure?

Still a good signing. Boozer is a quality player.

Really good move on the Bulls part, you don't strike out on free agency this team now becomes a contender with or without LeBron. They'll only look even better to him now if he hasn't already made his choice.

If Chi' needs to unload Taj Denver will take him.

what54!?
07-07-2010, 04:56 PM
not bad. its not the max so they didn't overpay.

Boozer is a very good PF and they finally got the big man they need. With rose they can do great things. I look foward to the bulls -heat games and rivarly

Does this mean that they don't have enough cap space for James now?

Utah will be fighting for a playoff spot this year.

redwhitenblue
07-07-2010, 04:59 PM
Note: This does not take Chicago out of the running for Lebron in cap space.

Boozer's 5/80 is probably not 16MM each year, it's likely he'll take a little less the first year and it will raise as he goes. If he gets 13MM this year, the Bulls still have plenty of room to add a max.


The most recent reports on Chicago radio says the Bulls still feel they are in the running. If that were the case, they wouldn't have taken themselves out of it.

Well Boozer is at his best in pick and roll/pop, which fits in great with Derek Rose as your PG. He will do well there, him and DRose will have good chemistry IMO, much like him and DWilliams.

his contract starts at 13 mil first year which gives the Bulls cap space for a MAX player still, no dout they are still gunning for Lebron.

07-07-2010, 05:00 PM
Nice signing for the Bulls, all they gotta do is sign a player who can shoot like Allen/Miller/Korver/JJ and it should make up for not signing Lebron...guess its down to MIA, NY, and CLE?

07-07-2010, 05:00 PM
Boozer is the perfect PF for Rose not named Bosh imo
Good signing

Now they just need to surround Rose with shooters like Allen, Miller, Korver and they have quite a lineup.

Even if LBJ doesn't sign, the Bulls just became a lot better.

JNA17
07-07-2010, 05:01 PM
boozer is a great sign imo. Despite the bad defense he has, he's a great upgrade at PF for the bulls and now the bulls have deng, boozer, rose, noah, great depth and now an even greater chance at signing lebron.

07-07-2010, 05:01 PM
Rose with a post player? This could get interesting.

Right now, Bulls are better than the Heat.

LBJ has to remember that.

The salary increases every year so they can still sign Lebron to the max right now.

cuz it has to be a sign and trade [rough work, 31 in guaranteed + (85/5 for booze)17 = 48. Salary cap at what 55, leaving lebron 7mil to sign outright?]? And Cleveland is already in the worst possible position with it's team without lebron anyway, why would they want to take on any of your contracts? If LeBron does go, cleveland will be looking to shed salary for years, not further handicap themselves by taking on more players.

I think the Bulls realized that it was either NY, MIA or Cle(most likely) for Lebron so they jumped on Boozer before it was too late.

Good move for Chicago, but bad move for Boozer. If he waits for Lebron James to make his announcement his value would increase and he would make even more money.

ManRam
07-07-2010, 05:09 PM
I think this is the last domino that forces LeBron to leave Cleveland.

I was 100% wrong about this FA. I thought LeBron would dictate everything, and that everyone would wait on him.

Now, it seems like everyone else is determining where he goes. Unless of course he stays in Cleveland and that was his plan all along.

1Orlando

4Boston
5Hawks
6Bulls
7Bucks
8Nets (w/David Lee)


If Cavs get Lebron put them at 2 and Knicks fall out of playoffs or right at 8 instead of Nets. Boston could drop too.

I see it:

1.Magic
2.Cavs/Knicks (Lebron)
3.Heat (right now no, but you know vets are going there)
4.Hawks (Homer, maybe. But we were #3 last year. So until there are real standings, you can't say crap)
5.Bulls
6.Celtics (sorry C's)
7.Bucks
8.Nets/Knicks

Solid signing. Should complement Noah well. I always thought Lee to Chicago was a bad idea because his game is somewhat similiar to Noah's (his offensive game is definitely better then Noah's). The only problem is his injury past and the possible let down of signing a big contract.

FinsHeatPanthrs
07-07-2010, 05:11 PM
I think that was a really good pick up for the Bulls. Now they've secured themselves from being shut out this FA period. What do you think is next, maybe Lee to the Nets? (Not including Lebron to wherever obviously.) The only problem I was thinking about this was that I thought that it would be an undersized frontcourt. But I didn't realize Noah was 6'11, I really had no idea he was actually even an inch taller than Bosh.

The C's just took the defending champions and BEST TEAM IN THE NBA to 7 games and you have them 6th?

No one is doubting the C's in the playoffs, but in the season? Yes.
They weren't good last season either btw.
They are like the Spurs, they take it easy in the season, rest their players often, and then become beastly in the playoffs. They'll make the playoffs, but I can see them being bottom half in the EC seedings.

I mean obviously he is a good fit, I just worry that he gets a little content now with his contract. I've always viewed him as a money first guy, now that he has a 5 year deal, what's left to play for?

I'm usually really optimistic, but Booz worries me a little. We'll see I guess. We need a shooter (or a Lebron) now!

*Silver&Black*

If Lebron has to decide to play with Boozer or Amare, which one do you seriously think? Boozer bailed on Lebron before.

They won't let Rose leave.


I doubt they let Noah go either. The only way they'd lose either is if they grabbed Lebron-in which case I think Noah would have to take a paycut.

07-07-2010, 05:19 PM
Personally I think it's a great signing for the Bulls, Boozer is tough and will fit nicely for the Bulls. Good job Chicago, if you dont get LBJ maybe the Bulls can get Ray Allen.

If Lebron has to decide to play with Boozer or Amare, which one do you seriously think? Boozer bailed on Lebron before.
And Lebron's not doing much differently by bailing on Cleveland now.


If Lebron's camp had that big of a problem with Boozer, the Bulls wouldn't have picked him up prior to the decision.

I hope you are right buddy. That's the least he should do right? Even if Utah only gets an exemption or Taj Gibson, it's better than losing a former All Star for nothing.

I mean obviously he is a good fit, I just worry that he gets a little content now with his contract. I've always viewed him as a money first guy, now that he has a 5 year deal, what's left to play for?

I'm usually really optimistic, but Booz worries me a little. We'll see I guess. We need a shooter (or a Lebron) now! You should be worried about that a little, if he gets injured just forget it. And yeah you have to worry about complacency.

Boozer is the better post player period when it comes to getting your own shot or going down on the block. Boozer is the better passer. Boozer is the better defender. Boozer is the better rebounder. Boozer is the better leader. Boozer is also healthier as Amare has had microfracture, scopes, eye surgeries, and a broken ankle all since he has been in the league.

New York busted a nut at the name Nash made because Dantoni is their coach when getting Boozer for less and adding more talent with the rest they gave Standing Tall And Talkative, would have made them better than Amare alone would have.

Scoring - Boozer = Amare

Defense - Boozer > Amare (both not great but at least Boozer is a willing defender)

And Boozer is making way less than Amare.

Not sure if you are serious or not as Bynum has dominated Amare ever since he became a starter, when healthy and Odom has historically made Boozer his ***** every postseason that they matchup.

If anything it opens up spots for Houston and Portland who will give LA more of a fight.

Amare's career TS% is 60.6% vs. Boozer's 57.7%.
Amare's career eFG% 54.5% vs. Boozer's 54.1%.
Amare's per 36 minutes numbers are 22.5 ppg, 9.4 rbg, 1.4 apg, 1.5 bpg, 54.4%
Boozer's per 36 minutes numbers are 19.0, 11.2 rbg, 2.7 apg, .5 bpg, 54.1%.

Playoffs-
Amare's career PER is 23.9 vs. Boozer's 19.5 (quite a difference)
Amare's career TS% is 58.8% vs. Boozer's 54.0%
Amare's career eFG% is 52.4% vs. Boozer's 50.3%.
FG% is 52.3% for Amare vs Boozer's 50.3%.
Amare's avg's more ppg- 24.2 to Boozer's 20.3
Boozer is a better rebounder than Amare in the playoffs or regular season.

Neither provides much defense- regular season or playoffs. They're both bad. This shouldn't be a deciding factor since neither can play D. Amare has improved though and if he started trying to play D, he'd be the better defender since he's got more size and athleticism.

Also, Amare's post game is pretty underrated.

The numbers are close but they def show Amare is the better player (and almost all of the stats I posted are pace adjusted, so don't give me crap about Amare being in an up tempo system).Next time you post, back up your info with some stats or facts instead of just blindly posting stuff out of your ***.

lol boozer walked out on lebron, I doubt lebron listens to anything boozers got to say!
Boozer and Lebron have already played together since that happened 5+ years ago. I don't think that's going to have an impact.

Well, they have to win first. And with Amar'e, Lebron and Melo having huge contracts, the rest of that team will be unattractive (no different than if Miami gets Lebron now)

Im sure that like MIA NY would be able to get some players to sign for cheap its NY everyone is marketable in NY so they could make money off endorsements as well.


FYI same stands for the Bulls they'd have to win first as well.

This is about Boozer. Not Lebron.

Not true. Look at somebody like Durant. Sure, he signed a nice extension, and makes some money outside of ball, but you really think he wouldn't make more in a NY, LA or Chi?

Oh how the tunes change once things go in your favor. Yesterday, multiple Chicago posters were bagging on Lebron for holding the hour long press conference, and now less than 24 hours later, they are all dancing knowing they have a chance to sign LBJ. One day and Chicago goes from "narcissistic Lebron" to "Please come to Chicago!"

Chicago Bulls - Carlos Boozer (5 years, $80 million)

Miami Heat - Dwyane Wade (6 years, $125 million) & Chris Bosh (5 years, $96 million)

New York Knicks - Amare Stoudemire (5 years, $96 million)

New Jersey Nets - N/A

Los Angeles Clippers - N/A


So far, the Bulls, Heat and Knicks at least signed a big name free agent. However, the Nets and Clippers haven't. To me, it's pretty clear which team won in the free agency debacle. Although my opinion could change if LeBron James doesn't return to the Cavaliers.

Very good move by the Chicago Bulls. I believe Boozer will have a great year next year for them. If they can get a backcourt running-mate with Derrick Rose, they will be looking good. They need a shooting guard, and they need depth at PG/SG and C. Still, great move.

Boozer still has time to improve his image a bit. He HAS to work out a sign and trade for Utah right? Even if Utah only gets a trade exception, it's better than nothing. If Booz just bails another team without warning again, he deserves as many injuries as he had in Utah.
