Then there is the Bulls, who have been rather quiet in free agency aside from a verbal agreement from Kirk Hinrich (who has yet to be officially signed) and the release of Bench Mob members Ronnie Brewer, C.J. Watson and Kyle Korver. Angry Bulls fans reacted harshly towards the team’s front office, criticizing them for diminishing the roster for only one purpose: stay under the Luxury Tax. With Derrick Rose out until at least January, many believe the team is gearing up for a wash of a season with the undesirable moves they’ve made. However, could the Bulls decisions thus far be part of a much grander plan? The Chicago Tribune is now reporting that the Bulls have been shopping Richard Hamilton’s $5 million deal. According to a source, the Bulls are highly interested in O.J. Mayo – and will meet with him in Las Vegas next week. The fact that they are trying to free up more space to potentially offer the 24 year old more money further proves that sentiment. Is the feeling mutual? Chatter indicates it is…and a Derrick Rose/ O.J. Mayo backcourt has the potential to be very special. Mayo’s decision, which he said will be made within 10 days, could make or break Chicago’s off-season.
