A person with knowledge of the details says the Los Angeles Lakers have claimed Carlos Boozer after he was waived by the Chicago Bulls via the amnesty clause.

According to NBA rules, teams with room under the salary cap had to bid at least $1.4 million, the amount of the minimum salary for veterans next season. The person, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Thursday because there was no official announcement, did not say how much the Lakers bid.

The amnesty clause allows teams to waive a player without his salary counting for cap and tax purposes. Boozer is due $16.8 million next season in the final season of his contract.
