Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards

CBS Chicago is reporting that the Bulls will look to trade veteran forward Carlos Boozer before releasing him In an effort to avoid paying his $16.8 million salary next season.

ESPN.com’s Marc Stein reported the information first.

You continue to hear rumbles that Bulls chairman Jerry Reinsdorf is adamantly against the idea of setting Boozer free via amnesty, even though the 32-year-old is finally poised to enter the final year of his contract, valued in 2014-15 at $16.8 million.

Sources briefed on Chicago’s thinking say the Bulls are going to do everything they can to try to find a trading partner for Boozer before seriously considering the amnesty option.

The NBA’s amnesty window this summer runs from July 10-16, ESPN.com reported.  Boozer averaged 13.7 points and 8.3 rebounds this season on 45.6 percent shooting.  The Bulls have to shed Boozers contract to have any shot at landing Carmelo Anthony.
