Report: Bulls talk Tyrus Thomas trade with Knicks for Al Harrington

If the trade rumor mill is to be believed, Bulls fans may not have Tyrus Thomas to kick around much anymore.

Yahoo! Sports is reporting that the Bulls are shopping Thomas and Jerome James for New York Knicks forward Al Harrington.

The Bulls have been chatting up teams while the enigmatic Thomas rehabs an arm injury. The report, citing league sources, says talks have been ongoing for several days between Bulls GM Gar Forman and Knicks president Donnie Walsh, who has been reluctant to move Harrington.

"Nothing is imminent, but both sides would like to figure out a way to do this," one league executive briefed on the talks reportedly said.

Harrington's scoring and $10.2 million expiring contract have piqued the Bulls' interest. The talented, but often frustrating Thomas, 23, was the fourth pick in the 2006 draft. He finished last season with 10.9 points and 6.4 rebounds. But he also adds a $13 million cap hold to the Bulls roster after this season.

Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni nearly got a chance to coach Thomas in 2008 when he was the odds favorite to take over Bulls coaching duties before them team decided on Vinny Del Negro.

al-t

we must understand how important is is to have pieces in place when we try to bring in the 2010 free agents.The one thing the free agents don't want to hear is rebuilding. right now the bulls are a little slow and lack athelets. What I see right now is two rookies that are going in the same direction to develope as tyrus did. What we need is a big guard who can score. Keep Taij and tyrus trade kirk or deng alone with jj and get some slashers. run baby run we have the point guard maybe draft a rebounder next year.
