NBA Rumors: Cleveland Cavaliers interested in Carlos Boozer

Since he lost his fourth quarter duties to Taj Gibson, it looks like the Chicago Bulls will almost certainly either use a trade or the amnesty clause to dump the final year of Carlos Boozer’s contract.

According to Mary Schmitt Boyer of The Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Cleveland Cavaliers could be a team that pursues Boozer if he becomes a free agent.

Hey, Mary: We all know that the Cavs are gonna try to pursue LeBron James this summer, but have you thought about going vintage and bringing back Carlos Boozer and Mo Williams? Boozer would give some inside muscle on defense plus some inside out scoring that Tristan Thomson has not provided, while Williams would give some solid scoring off the bench once Waiters is traded. — Chris Taylor, Columbus

Hey, Chris: I think the Cavs actually might take a look at Boozer if the Bulls amnesty him and his $16.8 million salary for next season, though I don’t think it would be popular with fans. Mo Williams never wanted to leave Cleveland, but the Cavs really don’t need another small guard.

This season, Boozer averaged 13.7 points, 8.3 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game last season.
