Carlos Boozer Could Wind Up in China

Carlos Boozer is only five years removed from being one of the more coveted free agents on the market, but now the veteran forward is struggling to find a spot in the NBA. While Boozer is still trying to secure a new NBA deal, he could wind up playing overseas in China, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein.

Stein says several Chinese teams have shown interest in Boozer, but there’s one team standing out:

Boozer spent last season with the Los Angeles Lakers after being amnestied by the Chicago Bulls. The 33-year-old put up respectable averages of 11.8 points and 6.8 rebounds, but his porous defense contributed to the Lakers’ terrible team defense.

Although Boozer’s defense is awful, he still has some skills that could make him a valuable piece off the bench somewhere. He can still do damage in the pick-and-pop game and is a strong rebounder, so it’s somewhat surprising he hasn’t found a spot yet. He could very well be looking for more money than teams are willing to offer, and if he winds up in China, he could return to the NBA after the CBA season is over in March.
