Boozer-to-Bulls rumors heating up

Now that the Bulls have backup guard insurance in the form of Jannero Pargo, Kirk Hinrich might have become more expendable than ever. And when I say “Kirk Hinrich,” I really mean “the bloated contract that Bulls management desperately wants to get rid of.” Let the trade rumors begin! ESPN.com’s Marc Stein reports: “Another major multi-team trade might […]

More draft talk

Mike McGraw of the Daily Herald discusses rumors, like the one about the Bulls trying to trade their draft picks (numbers 16 and 26) for New Jersey’s (number 11): “This has been discussed, but hasn’t really heated up. There has been talk that the Nets like North Carolina’s Tyler Hansbrough, who should be available at 16. […]

Latest rumor: Luol for Shaq

The Phoenix Suns want to dump Shaq. Or, more accurately, they want to rid themselves Shaq’s super-sized contract (worth $20 million in 2009-10). Times are tough, and, like many teams, they’d like to save a little money. Initially, the predominant rumor was Shaq to Cleveland. In return, Phoenix would receive the corpse of Ben Wallace, pine […]

A trade rumor I could get behind

Tab Bamford of the Bleacher Report believes that Toronto’s trade with the Philadelphia 76ers — a straight-up swap of sharp-shooter Jason Kapono for the rebound-nabbing (and testicle-grabbing) Reggie Evans — could be a harbinger of an even bigger trade involving the Raptors. As Bamford explains: “The Bulls have a lot of options that might look […]

Mike Miller? No thanks

According to the Bleacher Report, the Minnesota Timberwolves — who have three first round picks in this year’s draft — might want to package a pick and Mike Miller for either Ben Gordon (in a sign-and-trade) or Kirk Hinrich. It seems unlikely that the Bulls would do a sign-and-trade for BG, because that would mean they’d […]

Exit Bosh, enter…Brian Cardinal?

Well, the Phoenix Suns obliterated the Los Angeles Clippers 140-100 last night under new coach Alvin “I’m bringin’ the run-and-fun back” Gentry. That’s a dead coach bounce if I’ve ever seen one. But that seeming breakout win, in addition to the fear that he’ll be remembered as The Man Who Killed Happiness In Phoenix, will probably keep […]

Fresh ink: February 18, 2009

Brian Hanley of the Chicago Sun-Times: “Forward Tyrus Thomas, whose name has been a staple in any Stoudemire trade rumors, instructed the media to ask the ”people upstairs” about whether he was headed to Phoenix. ‘I can’t talk about something I can’t control,’ Thomas said. General manager John Paxson wasn’t around to clarify trade talks […]

Okay, now it’s Bosh to Chicago…

The latest in completely unsubstantiated trade rumors involving the Bulls has Chris Bosh coming to Chicago in a three-team deal. The other particulars are Amare Stoudemire going to the Toronto Raptors with the Phoenix Suns getting Drew Gooden’s Expiring Contract (worth $7.2 million off the books this summer), Tyrus Thomas and a first-round draft pick (plus some other random […]

Memo to Pax: Just say “No” to Amare

If you can believe the NBA rumor mill, the Phoenix Suns have apparently jammed a “Yard Sale” sign in front of Amare Stoudemire’s locker. It seems that Suns GM Steve Kerr has finally realized that, despite Amare’s wicked-awesome talent and immense athleticism, he’s still a big man without a post move who couldn’t protect the paint (short of the occasional high-flying swat) if his […]
