The Bulls officially announced the signing of Carlos Boozer today and will hold a news conference on Friday at 3 p.m. at the Berto Center to introduce the 6-9 power forward.
"We are very happy to have Carlos join the Bulls," general manager Gar Forman said. "We are confident that his skill set, toughness and leadership are all qualities that make him a great fit for the Bulls, and he will add a low-post element to our team that we have been searching for.
"Post players, with the skills that Carlos possesses, are at a premium in the NBA and we believe that we have landed one of the best big men in the NBA."
Said Boozer: "I am extremely excited about coming to Chicago and joining the Bulls. I am really looking forward to being a part of this organization, and I am eager to start working with my new teammates. I feel we have the talent here to begin competing for a title and I cannot wait to get started."
Besides Boozer and Forman, new Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau is expected to attend the news conference.
