Found February 14, 2013 on Beyond The Buzzer:
Reports have ceased since it was made known that the Bulls and Raptors had exploratory talks about a move that would send Carlos Boozer to the Raptors and Andrea Bargnani to the Bulls.  With the trade deadline a week away, it is now being reported that the Bulls are willing to give up Carlos Boozer and Nate Robinson for Andrea Bargnani and former Bull, John Lucas III.  The ball is in Toronto’s court. According to the Chicago Tribune: League sources said last week the Raptors were told the Carlos Boozer and Nate Robinson deal for Andrea Bargnani and John Lucas III was available whenever they wanted it. That move could take the Bulls below the luxury-tax threshold. Surely the Bulls would like to avoid paying tax if Rose doesn’t play this season.
