SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Jazz honored former Jazzman Carlos Boozer for his contributions to the franchise during the team’s game against the Phoenix Suns.

The Jazz hosted the Suns at Vivint Arena on Friday, April 8.

During a third quarter timeout, the crowd applauded Boozer as the organization presented the former Jazzman with a frame No. 5 navy blue jersey from his time in Utah.

Boozer played for the Jazz from 2004-10.

During his time in Utah, Boozer helped the Jazz qualify for the postseason four times.

He helped the Jazz reach the Western Conference Finals in 2007.

During his Jazz tenure, Boozer was selected as an NBA All-Star in back-to-back seasons (2007, 2008). He received All-NBA Third Team honors for the 2007-08 season.

As a Jazzman, Boozer averaged 19.3 points per game on 54.4 percent shooting. He also recorded 10.5 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 1.0 steals, and 0.4 blocks per contest. He played in 354 games with the Jazz, including 340 starts.

The Jazz plan to honor Boozer’s teammate, Deron Williams, next season.

Utah’s game against Phoenix is broadcast on AT&T SportsNet, NBA TV, and The Zone Sports Network.
