With over $1 billion in free agency funds throughout the league available this summer, players eligible for a new payday have an opportunity to significantly increase their earnings.
Add former two-time All-Star Carlos Boozer as one of those players looking to cash in on the bonanza. After a year away from the game, Boozer told Adrian Wojnarowski he’s planning on returning to the NBA next season.
“I’ve been in the league for 13 years, and played in All-Star Games and been part of a gold-medal team in the Olympics [in 2008], and I think that I can be a help in a mentoring role,” Boozer told The Vertical. “I think I can help some younger guys. I’ve played against Karl Malone and Kevin Garnett and Tim Duncan and picked up a lot of things that can be helpful to young guys. I really like the opportunity of having a role on a team where I can give back on the knowledge that I’ve gained through the years.”
In the full report, Boozer says he’d like to join a contender looking for interior depth or become a mentor to younger players.
