LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Lakers added another big man Thursday, winning a bid for former Chicago Bulls forward Carlos Boozer.

Boozer, 32, was waived by the Bulls on Tuesday via the amnesty provision. It was unclear what the Lakers paid for him in a blind bid submitted to the NBA office, but it will help offset the $16.8 million the Bulls owed him.

Boozer averaged 13.7 points and 8.3 rebounds last season for Chicago.
