Bulls Introduce Boozer, Make More Moves
From left-to-right: Bulls GM Gar Forman, Carlos Boozer, and head coach Tom Thibodeau Yesterday, after losing out on the Big 3 Sweepstakes, the Bulls officially introduced their 'big' free agent signing of this off-season, Carlos Boozer, who has inked a five-year, $76 million deal with the team. Said Jerry Reinsdorf at the press conference: "I also think we're a better team than Miami right now, assuming we get a shooting guard. Of course, with LeBron we would've been a great team. Without him, we're still going to be a very good team. If you look at the Miami roster with these three guys but not much else, I think we'll be better next year." Boozer is ready to battle, as well: "We don't mind being the underdog. We have guys who relish that role. We're not going to be afraid to play. We're going to fight and attack."
Not the Bulls rested on their laurels. ESPN is reporting the team has agreed to terms with Boozer's teammate from Utah Kyle Korver, who shot 53.6 percent from three-point land last year. The deal was reported to be three years, $15 million. The team also reportedly made an offer to Orlando Magic restricted free agent J.J. Redick; the Magic have a week to match the offer, rumored to be in the three-year/$20 million range.
