SALT LAKE CITY - APRIL 25:  Carlos Boozer #5 of the Utah Jazz comes down with a rebound in Game Four of the Western Conference Quarterfinals against the Los Angeles Lakers during the 2009 NBA Playoffs at Energy Solutions Arena on April 25, 2009 in Salt Lake City, Utah.  The Lakers won 108-94.

Yahoo! Sports has reported that the rumor of a three-team trade sending Boozer to Chicago is false. Chicago has never been a tax team, and Boozer may want an extension, which made many people wonder why Chicago would want him.

What it means to EC:

Is a sigh of a relief for many teams. Chicago has needed a low post scorer for a while and have been unable to have one. This may have put the Bulls in the conversation for a ECF appearance, but not a title team yet.

Other NBA News:

  • Channing Frye is choosing between Phoenix and Cleveland.
  • Millsap will likely receive an offer from Portland.
  • Knicks are favored to land Hill. I don't understand the move because it cuts into even more money for 2010, where cap is already going down.
