According to Sports Unplugged's twitter, Bulls are working on a three way with Utah and Houston for Boozer.

I have a real hard time buying this one unless there are some significant other pieces involved. Houston's trading Landry and Battier for Tyrus Thomas and Fesenko? Please.
Utah takes back over 15 million in salary while sending out 13 million. They're in the luxury tax. They're not taking on an extra 2 million in salary.
Maybe there's other "filler" involved, but given that scrubs like Fesenko and James are listed in this trade it seems awfully specific, so I'm going to be very surprised if it goes down in this configuration.
As for the overall idea that the Bulls are working on a trade for Boozer? Sure, it's definitely possible, we've heard the rumors before. However Utah gets screwed salarywise and Houston gets screwed talentwise.
The trade simply makes a lot more sense if it's James + Tyrus for Boozer straight up except for that it may leave the Bulls in the tax, given that we don't know how much Timmy's buyout is.
