Interesting twist in the LBJ saga. I think this really puts Cleveland in a tough spot to re-sign him. What's a better fit? Joining Noah, Rose, Gibson and Boozer (and Deng) in Chicago or Bosh and Wade in Miami? I wonder if Bulls don't offer Cleveland a sign and trade with Deng + ??? so at least LBJ feels Cleveland isn't being left high and dry.
So we can finally put to bed the Al for Deng rumors. The Nets are really on the outside looking in at this point. I have to think NJ will make a big play for Lee now.
Source: Boozer has Bulls deal
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.
