According to a press release promoting the upcoming World All-Star Classic, Bulls power forward Carlos Boozer will participate in the six-game, two-week tour.

Boozer will join the likes of Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade, Kevin Durant, Dwight Howard, Blake Griffin, Paul Pierce, Amar'e Stoudemire, Kevin Garnett, Chris Bosh, Rajon Rondo, Kevin Love, Chris Kaman and former Bulls center Tyson Chandler on the star-studded barnstorming tour.

Previously, it was reported that superstars LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul declined to participate, following the lead of Russell Westbrook and Boozer's Bulls teammate, Derrick Rose. Bulls center Joakim Noah was rumored to be a replacement candidate.

The tour is scheduled to begin Sunday in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Players will reportedly be compensated with paydays ranging from the hundreds of thousands of dollars to 1 million.
