The Toronto Raptors have "no interest" in trading for Carlos Boozer, according to the Toronto Star's Doug Smith.
Earlier this week, Bulls beat writer K.C. Johnson reported that Toronto has a standing offer from Chicago to swap Carlos Boozer and Nate Robinson for Andrea Bargnani and John Lucas III before the February 21 trade deadline.
But the Raptors aren't biting, Smith writes.
But my information remains as it was a week or so ago, there is no
interest in taking on either Boozer or his more-costly contract.
The Bulls wouldn't be making the deal to score a better player. Bargnani is in the midst of another injury-plagued season. It's also his

Boozer is playing well for the scrappy Bulls team, averaging 15.7 points and 9.3 rebounds in 49 games.

The Sprite Slam Dunk Contest hasn’t been the highlight event it’s supposed to be in years. The 2013 version had high hopes but things flamed out. The bright lights proved to be too big for James “Flight” White who came out with a dope concept but failed to deliver the money shot. Gerald Green was a bit lackluster after starting out strong.
