Los Angeles Lakers claim Carlos Boozer off waivers
The Lakers have signed several veterans in the offseason, including bringing back guard Nick Young and forward Jordan Hill. L.A. also traded for Houston Rockets point guard Jeremy Lin and drafted Julius Randle with the seventh overall pick in the draft.
Boozer struggled last season, averaging just 13.7 points, his lowest mark since his rookie year. Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau frequently held Boozer out of the fourth quarter of games entirely, opting to go with defensive-minded forward Taj Gibson instead.
