Carlos Boozer spent 13 seasons in the NBA and made upwards of $146 million during that time period. Those big paychecks stopped after the 2014-2015 season, so naturally his child support payments were going to see a dip.

This might be the biggest dip in child support history.

The former NBA all-star was originally shelling out $8,000 monthly child support payments to his ex-wife, Cindy Boozer, but he had asked the courts earlier this year to adjust them since he retired from the league.

The Blast has the details:

“When he agreed to pay the $8k, he was playing for the Los Angeles Lakers and he expected to continue his career but did not get any offers. He ended up playing in China in 2016 but announced his retirement in December of 2017.

The original agreement had a provision that allowed him to ask for a decrease if his income dropped and he moved back to Florida. Cindy originally demanded his motion be dismissed and support not be modified.

But Carlos and Cindy attended mediation where they were ultimately able to settle their issues. Per their new deal, they will now split custody 50/50 and Carlos will only pay a total of $382 a month in support for the kids.

The amount is based on Carlos’ income of $19k a month and Cindy ballin’ herself with $15k a month in income. He will also pay his ex-wife $10,000 to cover arrearages owed for other child expenses.”

Boozer is currently playing ball for Ice Cube’s BIG3 League.
