CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago Bulls are close to reaching a contract settlement with Jay Williams, recuperating from a motorcycle accident that has jeopardized his career.
Bill Duffy, Williams' agent, said Thursday he expected the buyout to be finalized within the next few days.
``We're looking at the Ts getting crossed and the Is getting dotted,'' Duffy said. ``We're obviously extremely grateful to (Bulls chairman) Jerry Reinsdorf. He has done something that he is not obligated to do, which basically is to give Jay quite a handsome settlement.''
