Mike McGraw of the Daily Herald wants to quash the Jamal Crawford-for-Ronnie Brewer trade rumor:
“On rumored Jamal sign and trade, probably wishful thinking from Hawks/Jamal camp. Crawford is a Bulls candidate, but not trading Brewer for him.”
The Bulls only have their $5 million mid-level exception to use…and it’s unlikely Crawford would sign for only $5 million a year. So unless management decides to part with a tradable asset like Brewer, I’d hold off on pre-ordering a new Bulls jersey with Crawford’s name on it.
According to David Aldridge of NBA.com, Caron Butler has officially fallen of the Bulls’ radar.
Butler is expected to sign a three-year, $24 million deal with the Los Angeles Clippers.
