View Full Version : Bulls Tell John Salmons To Stay At Hotel; Hes Getting Traded



Fresno

NEW YORK -- Bulls management has told John Salmons to remain at the team hotel Wednesday night as it finalizes a trade for the veteran swingman, sources said.

It doesn't appear Salmons will be moving to Houston as part of a Tracy McGrady trade, as the Rockets' demands for multiple draft picks is too high.

Unloading Salmons removes all doubt about him possibly exercising his $5.8 million player option this summer and guarantees that the Bulls will have enough money to offer a maximum contract this summer.

The Bulls have a 6:30 p.m. tipoff against the Knicks, the team they have been vying against in efforts to acquire McGrady.

http://www.chicagobreakingsports.com/2010/02/bulls-on-the-verge-of-unloading-salmons.html

I wonder where Salmons is going, considering the T-Mac deal is on hold until tomorrow if the Knicks cant work out a deal.

According to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune on Twitter, John Salmons could be on the move very soon: "Bulls management has told Salmons to remain at team hotel as it works to finalize a trade. Won't play vs. Knicks."

The Bulls are trying to move Salmons for expiring contracts in an effort to clear cap to make a run at two free agents agents this summer.

We told you earlier today that there's word Salmons may have been included in the Bulls' offer to Rockets for Tracy McGrady, but the Rockets weren't keen on him. It's also believe the Knicks are the frontrunner still in such a deal, as we noted in that same post.

Beyond that, ESPN's Chad Ford mentioned yesterday the Bucks could be a potential suitor for Salmons.

chad ford from espn has said thomas & salmons to the bucks for some expirings...not sure which ones tho...

The Bulls are no longer in the running for Tracy McGrady, according to sources that spoke with Yahoo!

The Rockets are now turning their attention to negotiating the particulars of draft protection with the proposed deal from New York.

Salmons is supposedly the most talented in the deal, and the Bulls will get one or two expiring contracts in return. Sources indicate it is either the Blazers or Bucks, and Tyrus Thomas may be involved as well.

My very reliable sources tell me it's a 4 way deal... Bulls get LeBron, Bosh, Wade, and multiple 1st round picks. The Bulls trade away Salmons, Tyrus, and Kirk.

Salmons to Milwaukee?
By Sekou Smith • February 17, 2010 • 8:23 PM
Share This:
TNT's David Aldridge has more on the John Salmons saga. Sources say the Bulls' swingman could be headed to the Bucks in a deal that's close to being completed.
HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS -- A league source tells TNT's David Aldridge that the Chicago Bulls are close to a deal to send swingman John Salmons to the Milwaukee Bucks for forward Kurt Thomas and center Francisco Elson.

The move would bring back two expiring contracts to the Bulls in exchange for Salmons, who has one year (a player option) remaining, at more than $5 million. This would allow the Bulls to pursue a max-level free agent this summer, the team's goal throughout this season.

The Bucks would get a starter in Salmons at small forward for the rest of this season and next, without sacrificing cap room for the summer of 2011, when the Bucks plan to be active in free agency.

Trading Salmons alone also signals Chicago is likely out of the running for Houston's Tracy McGrady, as Salmons was supposed to be part of that deal.

The Bulls and Bucks have reached an agreement to trade Salmons for Kurt Thomas and Francisco Elson, a league source told Yahoo Sports.
Spin: Salmons would give the Bucks someone who could start at shooting guard or small forward and hurts the value of Carlos Delfino and Charlie Bell. Chicago made the move to free up cap space to sign a max free agent this offseason and the additions of Thomas and Elson, when he returns from hernia surgery, gives them some frontcourt depth with Joalim Noah dealing with plantar fasciitis.
