Report: Boozer participating in star-studded tour

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.

The NBA announced Saturday that it has suspended former Bulls and current Knicks center Joakim Noah for 20 games without pay for violating the league's anti-drug policy.

He tested positive for an over-the-counter supplement called selective androgen receptor modulator LGD-4033, which is prohibited under the current collective bargaining agreement but would not have been under the new CBA starting next year, according to ESPN's Marc Spears.

It was announced in February that Noah would miss the remainder of the season with a left knee injury. His suspension will carry over into the 2017-18 campaign with only 10 games left this year.

Noah averaged 5.0 points per game and 8.8 rebounds per game in 46 games in his first of a four-year, $72 million contract with the Knicks.
