The holdup on the deal last time was Minnesota's insistance that the Bulls take Peeler along with Wally. Krause balked and eventually McHale changed his mind and pulled Wally off the table.Originally posted by <b>Petey</b>!
Won't there need to be other parts traded? I don't think they match, but what a trade it would be...
ESPN's Insider has expanded the list of potential suitors for Jamal Crawford:Originally posted by <b>truebluefan</b>!
Crawford-Fizer for Szczerbiak!! How original.
Reinsdorf has said the luxury tax is a non issue if the Bulls are a championship calibur team. So I don't see payroll dollars becoming a prohibitive factor if Krause is convinced that the addition of Wally will significantly improve the Bulls as an Eastern Conference contender.Originally posted by <b>johnston797</b>!
I really can't believe that we would trade for Wally and keep Rose, Marshall and E-Rob.
This would be tieing up $33M+ a year at the swing positions. And you know that JWill, Curry and Chandler will get paid.
Reinsdorf said that he would be willing to pay the lux tax IF the Bulls still made money AND were championship calibur.Originally posted by <b>DickieHurtz</b>!

I'm not as confident that this can be dismissed as a minor encounter. JC definitely seems to have an attitude problem that needs adjusting.Originally posted by <b>ace20004u</b>!
I think any trade speculation over this thing is kind of silly. This was a minor encounter in practice. Between Crawford and Cartwright the incident is likely to be forgotten in a matter of days. The only place that will rehash it ad naseum is the internet.
I will say though that the deal with Orlando looks pretty tempting. We get a solid vet pg to mentor JWill and we get a young swing former rookie of the year swing with some upside in Miller.
Just because one player is an all-star dosen't mean he has more value. I am relatively confident that a) Turkey-glue has much higher value than sz-no vowels and b) We would have to give up a lot more than Crawford to steal him from the kings.Originally posted by <b>JOHNNY_BRAVisimO</b>!
turkoglu is a better 3-point shooter/ passer/ball-handler and rebounder then wally who would come MUCH cheaper
