Not finalized, but two sources say Bulls and Bucks may be
closing in on deal sending Salmons to MKE for Kurt Thomas, Francisco
The deal probably helps both teams. The Bulls could especially use this deal if they move Tyrus for an expiring and a pick since it gives them a couple big men even if neither are particularly great.
Urgh, take that back, apparently, my views of Elson and Kurt Thomas are still biased by what they did three years ago. Unlikely either guy plays notable minutes for the Bulls even as 9th/10th guys.
Still, you have to do this trade to ensure flexibility in 2010.
