per an Insider on the Bull's board

Back to Chad Ford and the Gordon stuff. I know that the Cats would take Boozer so we could talk to them without the Nets being involved. Basically Brooklyn and Charlotte are the two teams that have interest in Boozer. The problem with Charlotte is they'd want to give a contract like Tyrus or Gordon in return. They have Diop expiring deal but I see it highly unlikely that they would take on Boozer's deal without sending one long contract out in return. Hence Chad Ford and Gordon. I was told prior that they couldn't see Gordon returning because how bad it ended with JR. The only thing I can think is JR just really doesn't want to pay the tax and is willing to swallow his pride and take back Gordon.

I'd love to get Gordon back. The dude shoots 40% from three and it's not like he's just spotting up, he takes a variety of three point shot. I think Rose and Gordon work well.

The next question is we're thin up front, which is true but we are loaded at G with some expiring people, Hamilton and Marco. It's a lot easier to deal Hamilton when saving 3 mil isn't involved. A Gordon trade takes us out of the LT, so it changes what the Bulls need in return for Hamilton or what teams they have to trade him to. Now they can trade him for a exact salary they're sending out. That makes things much easier IMO..

Again I don't see JR swallowing his pride here, wanted to give my view on a possible Gordon return.

If Chicago is that desperate to unload Boozer, the Bobcats should think long and hard about just letting them have Diop's expiring and some other short term deal if we get our lottery pick back (I believe that we have enough cap space that we don't have to do a dollar-for-dollar match). I don't think Chicago does that, but they would be tempted.

Boozer's contract is terrible though, not sure I'd want that.

Hell to the no, Diop's contract is a huge asset. We better be getting back Boozer + for Gordon and Diop.

There is enough Duke stank on this team with Hendo here. Don't add to it.

I'm glad we got the UNC trash off the roster. Krispy Kreams couldn't handle May for another year.
