Carlos Boozer May Play Overseas If NBA Lockout Continues, According To Report

Chicago Bulls forward Carlos Boozer wants to play basketball this fall, be it in the NBA or overseas. The latter appears the more likely option as the NBA lockout has no end in sight. Boozer recently spoke with ESPN The Magazine's Ric Bucher and said:

"If the NBA season gets delayed or postponed, I plan on using those months to experience something similar to what I did in the summer of 2008. That's why, if the lockout continues, I definitely plan on playing overseas."

Boozer did play for the 2008 U.S. Olympic Team in Beijing, which has already given him a taste of what to expect in international basketball. While Boozer didn't identify any particular place he would like to play, Bucher has a source that believes China is Boozer's preferred destination.

Boozer does have an injury history that could make this a risky move for him. Bulls fans should have legitimate worries over this potential move.
