Chicago Bulls Looking to Trade Rip Hamilton

The Rip Hamilton Experience hasn’t exactly worked for the Bulls, and according to the Chicago Tribune, the team is having a tough time moving the veteran guard: “…league sources said the Bulls have shopped Richard Hamilton’s expiring $5 million deal, which carries a mere $1 million guarantee for 2013-14. Thus far, there have been no takers.”

    Apparently John Paxson just realized what everyone else knew last summer.

    Well that was shortlived.

    What did everyone know Allenp? Bulls had the Heat number last season, they were blowing them boys outs minus Rose.

    Good. They shud sign Flip Williams imo. And they should have got Jason Terry..but bulls have the worst GM in the league imo..why? He refuses to make any moves to make the bulls better

    That rip is = t-mac to lesser extent, just injury prone in this part of career and cant stay on floor to effective. O we all know how that moral victory for bulls came out..what does beating MIA 1 time matter lol..

    Allen, everyone knew it except Bulls fans. I had a whole afternoon trying to explain why it wouldn’t work with BC and Matic the week they signed him and it turned out pretty much all of the Bulls fans in the world thought Rip Hamilton was some kind of championship miracle grow.

    Personally I knew in the regular season he’d be eh but I feel we got him for the playoffs. And he was rather good then.

    This team is in limbo. They pretty much ship out the nucleus of their bench. Their star is coming off an ACL tear. Idk what this team is thinking but they must be content with being the number 1 overall seed instead of getting chips.

    Everyone knew that Rip was dunzo and was not going to offer what the Bulls needed particularly not for the money they were paying him.

    The bulls went from being slightly above average on offense to drastically improving to the top 5 in efficiency and other offensive stats. Him and Rose had great chemistry but obviously the injuries hampered all of that. I don’t look at it like a fail because of the injuries.

    OK Ric, if that’s how you see it.

  • LP

    NO Bulls fans thought Rip hamilton was the answer……

  • AsadSaleh3

    Never saw Rip as the answer. He and D-Rose barely got to play together because of their injuries, but I still think for the long term it should have been a younger, more athletic 2 guard. I was hoping OJ Mayo would be that guy.

  • LA Huey

    Bulls fans don’t seem to realize how similar their team is to the Cavaliers of ’08-09 and ’09-10 seasons.

    I knew rip was over the basketball hill when paxson signed the bumb!!! Paxson screwed up again. They shoulda signed Crawford in the first place but I’m not shocked at paxsons lack of gm skills cuz I still remember the stupid draft day trade that saw Lamarquis Aldrige go to portland for Tyris Thomas. What a Joke!!!!

  • Mack

    SIGN F*CKING COURTNEY LEE ALREADY! Rose and Lee in the backcourt would be killer

  • http://Slamonline Stone Cold

    Whos gonna be the starting shooting guard? jordan comes out of retirement? hinrich is ok and lee is a possibility.

  • SylvioMac

    lol comparing the bulls to the Cavs…shots fired? haha.
