Forget this trade. Luis Scola cannot be traded until: "the following July, after the moratorium, if the player is amnestied and claimed off waivers by another team."
This restriction expires July 1st, 2013
Read the post again. I said the closest person with insider info is Sam Smith. Nobody has inside information about the Bulls man. That includes you.
The closest person who has inside information is Sam Smith, and that's it.
I'm just trying to understand why you recognize just Sam Smith. Sam Smith is a good guy but it's the way you said it. Bulls are one of the most private teams especially after the Deng/Kobe incident, but there are multiple sources who have reported what they heard.
Probably because the Bulls are a historically tight-lipped organization and Sam Smith is about the closest thing to a Bulls "insider" there is. There's a reason no one ever reports about Bulls trades before they happen. It's because the organization doesn't let stuff out.
Because Sam Smith has worked for the organization and at least has ties to the organization. That's why. You have nothing, just like everybody else. And that includes Sam Smith because that bloke doesn't know what he's talking about the majority of the time.
Not going to name names here but someone this summer reported the Kyle Korver Trade 3 to 5 days before it happened. This isn't the first time this has happened.
Shammy must hate those guys in the Cubs forum with insider info.
Another thing I'll correct here:
Well the real reason is the Bulls rarely ever make big moves but I agree with what you're saying.
Can't blame people for being skeptic, only way to earn it is to prove it in my book.
I know they tried trading Deng during this year's draft, but what about moving in the Top 5 of the 2013 draft by packaging Deng, Bobcats Pick, & Bulls 2013 Pick and select one of Muhammad or Poythress.
