Boozer is likely to receive higher bids from other teams, but if he does pass through waivers, look for him to want to join the Miami Heat. Boozer still has a home in Miami and would provide the Heat with much-needed big-man depth and scoring.
The Suns are loaded with cap space and could potentially place a bid on Boozer. Phoenix has a need for frontcourt depth after losing Channing Frye to the Magic. The Suns have a lot of young players on their team and Boozer would provide veteran leadership on an up-and-coming team.
The Lakers are one team that is still strapped with money to spend and would be interested in adding an experienced veteran like Boozer. Although he is nowhere near as productive as he used to be, Boozer would fit in well with the Lakers and be able to help rookie Julius Randle, who plays the same position.
The Hornets are a team armed with cap space and is looking to win now. They have a talented roster with Al Jefferson, Kemba Walker and now Lance Stephenson, and could use another veteran presence in the locker room. Charlotte has also added Marvin Williams, but Boozer would help fill out the frontcourt rotation nicely after the Hornets lost Josh McRoberts to the Heat.
In a much-anticipated move, the Chicago Bulls finally amnestied Carlos Boozer. Now, any team with enough cap space can place a blind bid on Boozer in the 48-hour waiver period. Say a team places a million bid on Boozer, the Bulls must pay the $ 12.8 million difference from his $ 16.8 million salary. If no bid is placed, Boozer then becomes a free agent and may sign with any team. These are five potential suitors for Carlos Boozer.
The Hawks have struck out time and time again in 2014 free agency and are one of the favorites to land Boozer after failing to land another former Bull in Luol Deng. Atlanta has a talented core with a bright future, and Boozer would be a solid addition to a team looking to make the playoffs again.
