The Chicago Bulls playoffs crashed and burned to the ground last night with a game 5 loss against the Washington Wizards condemning them to a 4-1 loss and an ended dream for 2014.
And it looks like yesterday's loss may have been the last game of Carlos Boozer's career in the red of the Bulls.
While the power forward still has time left on his contract, the Bulls have been thinking about using their 2012 amnesty clause on him and may finally get around to it almost two years after the fact.
According to Marc Stein of ESPN.com, should the Bulls amnesty Boozer - which seems quite likely at the moment if they really do want to get Carmelo Anthony - then the Los Angeles Lakers could be an incredibly likely destination.
Boozer shares the same agents as Kobe Bryant, making a linkup a very likely prospect if he is to hit the market. While not being the most flashy player in the NBA, Boozer is better than a lot of what the Lakers have at the moment, and would provide some much needed grit.
Boozer turns 33 in November of this year and could be a great pickup if the Lakers lose Pau Gasol who becomes a free agent.
He put up respectable numbers this season as the Bulls starting PF. Boozer averaged 13.7 points and 8.3 rebounds per contest this year in 28 minutes.
