Carlos Boozer Update
The Detroit Free Press is reporting on their latest updates in regard to both Carlos Boozer and Ben Gordon, both of whom are possible targets of the Pistons this offseason.
In the case of boozer it is reported that he is likely to opt out of his present 12 million dollar per season deal so that he can sign a long term contract. “According to the Tribune, Boozer’s best option might be to hang around for a season because few teams (such as the Pistons) would have the cap space to sign him outright as a free agent this summer.
If he decided to stay put, he becomes prime trade bait as the Jazz may try to get something for him before he leaves.”
With regard to Ben Gordon is it reported that the Bulls may not be able to resign him due to the fact that they have “$63 million in salary commitments for next season with the salary cap expected to be around $57 million.
"I really don’t know (what will happen)," Gordon told Bulls.com after Chicago was eliminated Saturday night. "I’m just going to have to wait and see what my options are. See what the Bulls want to do and go from there. I’d like to be here. … So you never know."
