SALT LAKE CITY – Former Utah Jazz star Carlos Boozer attended the team’s preseason-opening game against the Toronto Raptors.

The Raptors hosted the Jazz at Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on Sunday, October 2.

Boozer attended the preseason opener and sported an Edmonton Oilers jersey while enjoying the contest.

The Alaska native 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.

Last season, the Jazz honored Boozer for his time as a Jazzman.

Utah’s game against Toronto is broadcast on AT&T SportsNet, NBA TV, and KSL Sports Zone.
