NBA Free Agent Rumors: Carlos Boozer to Toronto Raptors?

The 33-year-old did suffer through perhaps his worst season in the league last season, but he still managed nearly 12 points and seven rebounds per game, despite playing just 24 minutes per night, his lowest total since arriving in the league back in 2002.

Despite a sub-par year, the former second round pick of Cleveland still has plenty to offer a team, especially a franchise that is a contender. The veteran is still an above average shooter and has the offensive game to play in the paint or take his opposition outside with a solid 15-foot jumper.

Several teams have expressed interest and the latest rumors has Toronto as a possible landing spot. The Raptors have already been busy over the summer, making some big changes — despite a fourth place finish in the Eastern Conference last season — but for this squad to take that next step, adding a veteran that can help the younger players learn the ropes is a good idea.

Adam Fromal of Bleacher Report has suggested Toronto is lacking a true power forward, despite having plenty of front court players. Boozer has good size and would help give the Raptors improve in the paint on both ends of the floor and give point guard Kyle Lowry another experienced player to lean on when games are tight.

The Inquistr also has Toronto as a franchise that could have some interest and while it might not be the big payday the veteran free agent is looking for, it would land him on a team that has a good shot at making it past the first round of the NBA Playoffs in the coming year and possibly a dark horse squad at making the Finals.
