Boozer To Officially Be A Sign-And-Trade Deal

It’s more or less moot because, as noted in the previous update, Carlos Boozer will be introduced as a Bull at 3 p.m. tomorrow, but officially, he’ll re-sign with the Jazz and then be traded to the Bulls:

The Bulls will acquire a protected second-round pick from the Jazz, who will sign Boozer to a five-year, $76 million contract and then trade him. The Jazz will receive a traded player exception in return that will allow them to acquire players totaling near $13 million any time in the next year, even if the traded players take the Jazz over the league’s $58 million salary cap.
