Hinrich at the MMLE for two years would be a solid signing, especially given the rest of the market so far. For what some of these other guys have signed at, that's a pretty good value. I guess we have to wait and see.

If it happens, it will be the first domino to fall, and maybe we'll get more signs about what the FO wants to do with Omer and the rest.

I don't get the love feast with Lee and bulls organization. He must be an out standing citizen,best at high fives,pats on the backs,and sweating hard in practice to give off that hard work look. Because when i see his game he does nothing special nor does he do anything I feel we need. So unless its at a discount I rather seek someone else.


But i'd take kirk he's at least a gritting in your face defender can play both guard spots and is a leader/while also being ok with whatever role given,and won't complain. And can shot it from deep. All things we can use somewhat as long as he's not ridden to the ground and played/payed to much i'd welcome him back with open arms.

Isn't the whole "per espn" thing in the title kind of misleading? Why exactly wouldn't ESPN report this if it was the case. I'll gladly bite my tongue if it happens in the next 15-20 minutes though :lol:

Thanks. What exactly have you heard regarding Lee?



We'll I have heard the two sides seem close on deal that could be a done deal pretty soon.

Courtney Lee is listening to the Bulls pitch and seems interested on joining the Bulls. I know for a fact the Bulls were interested in guard Brandon Roy but decided not to pursue Roy because he was too much money, his injuries are question marks and because Lee became an unrestricted free agent.

ESPN has people that research information before it goes live and to your knowledge I am one of those people that those the research for production.

A friend of mine used to work for ABC on the golf tour, and his job early on was to go out to the green and hold up the windsock (or whatever it is) to get info on the wind conditions so that could be broadcast

I would really forgive GarPax the signing of Kirk, If we are getting Lee, too. GO BULLS

But who knows....it's better not to expect that.

So far Courtney Lee looks like he is going to be heading to Chicago since Kirk Hinrich deal seems to be for 2 years.

Steve Kyler: The Bulls seem close to something with Kirk Hinrich... talking with Derek Fisher too, but Kirk seems to be top option

What a coup that would be to get Hinrich, Lee and keep Asik.

Yeah, he actually posted this on his twitter page about 6 hours ago, so a deal could be in place. We're all just waiting to see what happens.

Hmm...maybe you're not watching properly. I don't love Lee, but to say he doesn't do anything we need is a looooong stretch. Very good/gritty defense (Bulls need), stretches the floor with his 3 pt shooting (Bulls need), does what is asked of him, young,...

I guess we can cross declining, inefficient combo guard off our list now.

Return to Chicago Bulls
