CHICAGO -- The Chicago Bulls said goodbye to forward Carlos Boozer on Tuesday, using the amnesty clause to cut the veteran forward after four seasons with the team. Sheldon Richardson Jersey . Boozer came to Chicago in a sign-and-trade deal with Utah in July 2010. The two-time All-Star averaged 15.5 points and nine rebounds in 280 games with the Bulls. He had one season left on a five-year deal worth roughly $75 million. The amnesty clause allows a team to waive one player during the current labour deal and have 100 per cent of his salary taken off the cap and the tax. The 6-foot-9 power forward is still owed the money. "Carlos epitomized professionalism in everything he did for the Bulls both on the court, and in the community, during his time here in Chicago," general manager Gar Forman said in a release. "Over the last four seasons, Carlos productivity helped elevate our team to another level. I have nothing but respect for Carlos, and certainly wish him the best as he moves forward." The 32-year-old Boozer took to Twitter to thank the team for his four seasons with Chicago. The Bulls also waived forward Lou Amundson and guards Ronnie Brewer and Mike James as they continue to clear salary-cap space for the signing of free-agent centre Pau Gasol and the first NBA contract for 2011 draft pick Nikola Mirotic. Chicago made two trades on Monday. It sent forward Anthony Randolph, two second-round draft picks and cash considerations to Orlando for the rights to Milovan Rakovic. It also traded forward Greg Smith to Dallas for the rights to Tadija Dragicevic. Mike Hughes Jersey . Mesoraco hurt his hamstring while scoring from second in Friday nights 5-4 loss at Atlanta. Chapman was hit by a line drive during an exhibition game on March 19, breaking his nose and a bone above his left eye. The left-hander looked strong while throwing 43 pitches in batting practice before Saturday nights game against the Braves. Brian ONeill Jersey . The St. Louis Cardinals were scheduled to arrive in Boston in time for a workout on Tuesday afternoon. Much of Mondays discussion focused on Bostons lineup considerations as the series progresses, specifically when the venue shifts to St. . -- Cordell Cato scored his first goal of the season and the San Jose Earthquakes survived a full half playing a man down to beat FC Dallas 2-1 Saturday night. KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- The Vancouver Whitecaps relied on a familiar face to keep their unbeaten streak alive. Camilo Da Silva Sanvezzo scored a gorgeous free-kick goal just before halftime as Vancouver earned a 1-1 draw with Sporting Kansas City on Wednesday in Major League Soccer action. "That took the pressure off us a little bit," said forward Kenny Cooper. "Coming in (at halftime) 1-0 down, its always going to be hard to get back in the game." Vancouver (7-5-5) head coach Martin Rennie knew he could count on Sanvezzo. "I think thats his 13th goal in the last 14 games in all competitions, which is an incredible record," Rennie said. "I think hes got 10 in MLS and he works a lot on his free kicks. That was a fantastic effort. That was a great goal and I dont think too many people would have saved that." Sanvezzo is tied for the second in MLS with those 10 goals. The Whitecaps have not lost in four contests -- winning three straight and then adding Wednesdays tie. "The teams really grown in its belief," Rennie said when asked about the Whitecaps recent 5-1-2 surge. "But I think also earlier in the season, we were often playing well but not getting the results that we probably deserved. "Now, the team and players realize they are a really good team and have a chance against anybody." It didnt look like the Whitecaps were going to earn another positive result, as they struggled to possess the ball throughout the first half. Vancouver controlled the ball less than 40 per cent at the start of the match and rarely peenetrated more than a few yards into the attacking half, making all-star defender Aurelien Collins goal at the 35th minute inevitable. Trevor Siemian Jersey. Fellow defender Chance Myers nodded a cross from Oriol Rosell into the middle of Vancouvers box, where Collins first attempt -- a wheeling, left-footed shot -- was blocked by Whitecaps defender Johnny Leveron. Unfortunately for Leveron, the deflection fell right back into Collins wheelhouse for a right-footed drive and his third goal of the season. Vancouver, which attempted two shots in the opening 25 minutes -- and neither was on goal or presented any real challenge to Sporting KCs defence -- continued to absorb pressure until the final five minutes. Eventually, the Whitecaps earned a free kick from 25 yards in front of goal during the 44th minute and with literally seconds remaining before halftime, Sanvezzo drew Vancouver even with a perfectly struck rocket into the upper right corner. Vancouver dodged a bullet in the 76th minute when its defence failed to pressure Sporting KC all-star midfielder Graham Zusi after he collected a ball at the top left edge of the penalty box. Given adequate time and space, Zusi, an MLS MVP finalist last season and a rising star for the U.S. mens national team, rolled a low, hard shot toward the left post. Knighton was beaten, but Zusis shot bent just enough that it pinged back into play off the post and was cleared from danger as the Whitecaps remained level at 1-1. "Did we do enough to win the game? Probably not," Cooper said. "A draws probably a fair result."
