According to John Jackson of the Chicago Sun-Times: “The Bulls completed their offseason moves on Tuesday by re-signing backup center Aaron Gray to a one-year contract for roughly $1 million. Gray, who had been a restricted free agent, is entering his third season in the NBA after averaging 3.9 points and 3.3 rebounds in 117 games during his first two seasons.”
Wow. I haven’t felt this much nothing since The Love Guru was released on DVD. When a team signs its 12th man to a one-year contract, that’s the same as saying, “You really aren’t part of our future. In fact, you’re barely part of our today.” Don’t get me wrong. Gray’s a good kid who works hard and all that. But with the additions of rookies James Johnson and Taj Gibson, Gray is now buried so far down the depth chart you’d need Indiana Jones to find him.
