Heisley attempts heist of Henry

In short, Heisley decided he didn't want to sign the guy to 120% of the rookie scale. Which, yes, is negotiable under the salary cap rules, but in practice everyone (I think except for one or two players in the entire history of the rookie scale!), signs for 120% of the rookie scale. Henry's agent is Reinsdorf buddy Arn Tellem. He's athletic, can defend, and can shoot the lights out. If this isn't an obvious guy to go after, I don't know who is.

How the Bulls Could Keep Up

Assuming Lebron actually goes to the Heat, how do you compete with that?  I think the only possible way is to get a guy who could be a superstar, and most any cost, and hope it turns out.Because...

Quick evaluation of the Bulls Coaching Prospects

I did a pretty long write up on the Bulls coaching "candidates". The bottom line is: 1. Three way tie between Kimbo Slice, Phil Jackson, Calipari if he brings an illegal but still written guarantee that Lebron James is coming. 4. Van Gundy, because he's got personality. 5. Rick Pitino, because he gets people to willingly lay down for them even after he bones their wife. 6. Dwane Casey, because I wanted him 2 years ago, even though I think that ship has sailed and it'd be awkward now. 7. Sam Mitchell, because I can't find anything obviously wrong with him.

James Johnson hurts foot, uncertain for Nets Game

Ugh. This isn't looking good James Johnson underwent an MRI on his strained right foot Friday and his availability for Saturday's home game against the Nets will be made after the morning shootaround. Johnson suffered the injury during the first quarter of Thursday's loss and played 13 minutes, 16 seconds of his 19:48 after briefly returning to the locker room. With Luol Deng already out, coach Vinny Del Negro said Flip Murray would start at small forward if Johnson can't play.

Bulls lose again

Pritch About to be Slapped too?

What in the name of Detlef Schrempf is going on in Portland? Tuesday, vice president of basketball operations Tom Penn was canned for "philosophical differences." Those differences turned out to be misrepresenting an offer he had from the Minnesota Timberwolves in order to get a raise and promotion with the Trailblazers. Now, rumor has it that general manager par excellence Kevin Pritchard is next on the chopping block. The Oregonian's John Canzano has the scoop.

Bulls targeting Harrington this summer?

The former star at St. Patrick's High in Elizabeth, who lives in Edgewater, said he's not trying to send out any subliminal messages -- but told The Post he definitely would be interested in signing with his hometown Nets this summer, especially since they will play in Newark, 10 miles from Elizabeth, the next two seasons. "If they had interest in me, I'd take a strong look at that," Harrington, a free-agent-to-be, told The Post. "It's still the city. It's still home. I'd rather play at the Garden, but I'd play in Newark, too." According to a source, the Wizards, Blazers and Bulls are expected to have interest in Harrington this summer.

The NBA's Best Free Agent

DALLAS - Jerry Colangelo revealed Sunday that he would consider running an NBA team again, including the Nets, but only if he is given full control of the organization. "I would have to have full autonomy," Colangelo told the Daily News. "I'm not looking to become a general manager. But if the right job came along I'd be willing to talk to anyone. Life is all about opportunities." There's no one I'd rather have this summer than Jerry Colangelo running this team.

Bulls point guard Derrick Rose told the media that Thomas apologized to all his teammates right after the incident, but his most revealing answer came when he was asked if anyone on the team had tried to talk to Thomas about keeping his emotions in check. "Everybody," Rose said. "Everybody talked to him. People handle stuff certain ways. It seems like he's on the right path, so we're just going to leave him that way."
