Is Carlos Boozer Better Than David Lee Right Now?

The Chicago Bulls seemed to move quickly to sign Carlos Boozer Wednesday afternoon in lieu of waiting for a decision from more highly regarded David Lee of the New York Knicks, another free agent power forward.

SB Nation’s Blog a Bull thinks that while Lee might be better in the future, Boozer was the best bet right now.

My quick take: If it was a choice between Boozer and David Lee, I think Lee may have been the better risk over five years, but Boozer is the better player right now. And if this helps them sway ‘the decision’ for LeBron, it’s worth the gamble to get this done ASAP and not have to wait for Lee.
