The Chicago Bulls have officially moved on from Carlos Boozer which means some other team in the NBA will begin a Carlos Boozer era of their own.
But teams aren’t necessarily lining up at the door to get a crack at claiming Boozer or even signing him if he falls through waives unclaimed. His good days in Chicago are being weighted against the bad and so far it doesn’t seem to be much of a contest as to which memories are being remembered more.
One of those teams not interested in Boozer are the Charlotte Hornets. According to Rick Bonnell from the Charlotte Observer, the Hornets have no interest in Boozer and will not be trying to claim him off of waivers this week.
The Charlotte Hornets aren’t in the secondary-waiver chase for Carlos Boozer.

This really isn’t all that surprising but at least it shows that the Hornets spending money on Lance Stephenson was because they wanted to and not because they felt like they had to. Adding Boozer is a nice idea but he doesn’t really fit and the Hornets are better off using that money elsewhere in free agency.
