Phil Jackson says he is leaning towards retirement

A lot of speculation has surrounded the Los Angeles Lakers recently after winning their second straight NBA title. Not only do the Lakers have some free agents decisions to make with Derek Fisher and Jordan Farmar, but their number one priority is the re-signing of legendary head coach Phil Jackson.

Bulls trade Hinrich and 17th pick in the NBA Draft to Wizards

The Chicago Bulls are one of only a handful of teams this summer that will have the means to sign a big-name free agent like LeBron James, Dwyane Wade or Chris Bosh, but after Thursday’s trade during the NBA Draft, the Bulls have taken another step in the right direction and now have the means to sign two big-name free agents come July 1st.

Throughout this past NBA regular season, the Chicago Bulls were shopping defensive minded point guard Kirk Hinrich in an attempt to clear some cap space for the upcoming free agent market. Unfortunately, despite fielding offers from teams like the defending NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers, the Bulls were unable to make a deal and Hinrich remained with the team a little while longer.

Ravens Acquire Veteran QB Marc Bulger

One team’s release is another team’s gain.  In this case, the release of veteran quarterback Marc Bulger from the Rams back in April is the Ravens’ gain.  The Baltimore Ravens and QB Bulger have come to an agreement for a one-year contract deal that totals nearly $4 million, which could ultimately be worth even more provided that the quarterback is able to meet particular incentives.

Bulger won’t be competing for the starting position though as this is already set in place with Joe Flacco as the current starter for the Ravens so Bulger will be competing for the second spot behind Flacco – the backup position should anything happen to Flacco.  Continue Reading…
