Dwight Howard Not Interested in Chicago Bulls Due to Marketing Concerns?
Bulls GM John Paxson insinuates that Dwight Howard and his reps don’t want him in Chicago not for basketball reasons, but because the Bulls already employ one high-profile adidas endorser in Derrick Rose (among other marketing concerns.) From CSN Chicago (via ESPN Radio): “We don’t want to talk about other teams’ players but obviously there are situations out there that you know that you have to look at,’ VP of Basketball Operations John Paxson said on Wednesday. ‘The other part of it is you hope those types of players want to come here. Sometimes, at least what you hear from agents, it doesn’t have anything to do with basketball. It has more to do with marketing and whatnot. Those are the things you don’t have under control when an agent gets involved and doesn’t even want to talk to you. All you do is keep trying, and we certainly will.’”
