In the first major trade heading into tomorrow's deadline, the Bulls, Kings and Blazers pull off a 7-player deal. (Well at least that's what ESPN says.) The only impact to Portland is the swap of Ike Diogu for Michael Ruffin. Snooze.
The Chicago Bulls and Sacramento Kings have reached tentative agreement on a trade sending Andres Nocioni, Drew Gooden and Cedric Simmons to the Kings for Brad Miller and John Salmons, ESPN.com.I'm thinking they'll waive Ruffin and tomorrow we'll see the big move we've all been waiting for. Bayless on the outs?
One source said the Bulls players were pulled off the team bus Wednesday afternoon and were told they had been traded.
The deal also involved a third team. The Bulls agreed to send Michael Ruffin to Portland, and the Trail Blazers would ship Ike Diogu to the Kings, sources told ESPN The Magazine's Chris Broussard.
