Talk of Trade Fizzles, Nocioni Signs With Da Bulls

Posted by Bob Swerski on July 7, 2007

Now I am on record as hating the NBA and all that it stands for, but alot of action has been happening in Chicago, so there  is a need to stay slightly informed.  The Memphis Grizzlies can waste their money trying to get Andres Nocioni from Da Bulls, but their efforts only proved to cost them money and receive nothing in return.  The rumor mill has been churning around the Bull’s forward and the idea of him possibly playing in Memphis.  However, in a recent press conference, Bulls GM John Paxon has denied that their have even been talks of trade between the 2 teams.  Paxon has stated that he vows to match any offer made by other teams, and Nocioni has come forward saying “he plans to be a Chicago Bull for his entire career.”  However, Memphis has been shelling out money left and right to try and entice Nocioni to join their team.  These rumors can be put to rest today as Nocioni signed a contract reportedly worth $38 Million over 5 years. Ensuring that the Bulls’ active approach this off-season will secure them a spot once again in the Playoffs.

Other off season moves might include signing either veteran big man Joe Smith from Philly or Chris Mihm from the Lakers.  I will keep you posted if Da Bulls decide to make any moves.

P.J. Brown still hasn’t decided if he will play another year or retire at the age of 37.  It is likely that he will not play for the Bulls if he does return.  My guess is that we will return and will play for the Dallas Mavericks who have expressed interest in him.
