Bobcats Acquire Tyrus Thomas

I simply love the idea of Michael Jordan trying to get through to Tyrus (assuming, of course, that MJ even knows this trade is going down): “The Bobcats, determined to add an athletic big man to their front court, have agreed to acquire Tyrus Thomas in a deal with the Bulls that would send Acie Law, Flip Murray, and a future No. 1 pick to Chicago, a person with knowledge of the situation told Charlotte beat out several other suitors — New York, Denver, and San Antonio chief among them — and will have the rest of the season to evaluate the soon-to-be restricted free agent and decide whether to commit to Thomas long-term. Trading Thomas spares the Bulls the embarrassment of losing one of their best players through free agency with no compensation for the second year in a row.”
