Description: Carlos Boozer will play for the Los Angeles Lakers next season.
Insight: Boozer was cut from the Chicago Bulls via the amnesty provision earlier this week and Los Angeles won a blind auction to claim him. Boozer started 76 games last season and played 28.2 minutes per game, but he'll have to battle Julius Randle, Jordan Hill and Ed Davis for playing time in 2014-15.

He averaged 28.2 minutes, 13.7 points, 8.3 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game last season, but he was rarely used in fourth quarters and was no longer needed after the team signed Pau Gasol.
