NBA veteran Carlos Boozer will play in China next season, tweets international basketball writer David Pick. The 34-year-old power forward recently met with the coach of the Guangdong Tigers, who was visiting the United States.
Boozer had been hoping to return to the NBA, saying he was working out five to six days a week in an attempt to earn an invitation to training camp. He last played in the league in 2014/15, appearing in 71 games with the Lakers. Boozer said he believes his body benefited from a year away from the physical NBA game.
Boozer may try to catch on with an NBA team after his Chinese season is complete. Over his 13-year career, he averaged 16.2 points and 9.5 rebounds in 861 games. In addition to the Lakers, he played for the Cavaliers, Jazz and Bulls.
