When there were rumors at the tail end of last year that Hamilton was going to be waived, rumors here in Chicago were that the Bulls would pick him up in a heartbeat (the Bulls are desperate for a SG). If Hamilton is willing to take a veteran's minimum contract in order to play on a contender, the Bulls would be a great fit for him.
THank God he is out of Detroit. Rip needs a PG who knows how to get him the ball when he comes off screens. He'll run guys off screens all night long. Stuckey never understood that - he thought he was an NBA all star himself!!
Unlike Arenas, he will not be under the amnesty clause. If you're like me and never heard of the amnesty clause here is a definition for Arenas.
"The amnesty clause allows each team to waive one of its player contracts that was in effect prior to the 2011-12 season and have 100 percent of the player's salary removed from the team's salary for Salary Cap and Tax purposes. Arenas' remaining contract will not count against Orlando's salary cap, but the team must pay out the contract unless another franchise claims the 29- year-old in a modified waiver process."
Still don't know what the hell it all means but for those smarter than me I hope it helps.
I was telling everyone that would listen that it was a no brainer for the Bulls to get him last year, The Bulls had a really good team but it was a joke they thought they could win the whole thing with Bogans as their starting 2 guard and Korver off the bench.
