NBA via Chicago Bulls(NEW YORK) — The Carlos Boozer-era is over in Chicago as the Bulls have informed him that he’s been amnestied.

Boozer was entering the final year of his contract, and was set to earn $16.8 million next season. While Boozer will still receive his full salary, it won’t count against the Bulls salary cap.

With the recent additions of Pau Gasol and Nikola Mirotic, the Bulls front-court suddenly became very crowded, and very expensive.

Boozer’s contract is now put out to bid and teams under the salary cap can enter a blind bid, with the team putting in the highest bid (over a minimum of $1.4 million) can get his services.

The 32-year-old Boozer is still a productive NBA player. This past season for the Bulls, he averaged 13.7 points and 8.3 rebounds per game.

He spent four of his 12 overall seasons in the NBA in Chicago, and has career averages of 16.6 points and 9.8 rebounds per game.
