Bulls’ Trade Would Be No Surprise
Just 10 days out from the NBA trade deadline, rumors are swirling about what players will stay and what players will be on the move. For the Chicago Bulls, any help they bring is will probably be at shooting guard.
“Gar Forman and the satff have been out personally scouting guys,” Steve Kyler, of HoopsWorld.com, said on the Mully and Hanley Show. “They like Courtney Lee from Houston and there’s been some talks there and I think there could be a deal if the Bulls want to make it.”

One of the players that has been mentioned as trade bait recently has been the Bulls’ center Omer Asik.
“I don’t know if I part with Omer Asik to get Courtney Lee,” Kyler said. “There are some other guys out there. They’re sniffing at Anthony Parker of the Cavaliers. And they’re going to blow up that team and he’s a cheap disposable three-point shooter that’s a pro that knows how to play.
“So there are going to be some options out there. It’s not going to surprise me to see the Bulls make a deal. The fact that they’re re-calling James [Johnson] from the D-League this week, probably to get him on the floor before the deadline, probably shows that he may be the odd man out when this whole thing is said and done.”
