Spurs Pursuing Tyrus Thomas?
Well, it seems the Spurs are not without hope… yet. The latest rumor has the Spurs offering Antonio McDyess for Tyrus Thomas of the Bulls. I find it hard to believe that the T’Wolves can’t/won’t trump anything the Spurs could offer, but the Wolves are the same team who drafted two point guards and signed another in the off-season. They are just a cut above the Clippers lunacy right now.
I like the old rumor that included John Salmons, but there is no mention of him or even Roger Mason being involved in any Chicago trade. The best trade scenario I see here, and that works on the ESPN Trade Machine, is McDyess, Bogans and Mason for Thomas and Salmons. That would be a really nice move, but I am not convinced the Bulls would do that. It depends on how much they like Salmons and how much they want to clear an extra $6.5 million from the payroll. The Bulls aren’t as brain-dead as the Clippers, but John Paxson is still the GM in Chi-town so I suppose it’s possible.
Unfortunately, there are still no known takers for Richard Jefferson. Maybe R.C. Buford should call the Clippers next.
