brad miller and john salmons traded to the chicago bulls

finally the bulls pulled the trigger on a trade. this one does not involve amare though. according to espn, the bulls and the sacramento kings reached a tentative agreement to ship brad miller and john salmons to the chicago bulls in exchange for andres nocioni, cedric simmons, and drew gooden.

the portland trailblazers are also involved in the trade as the bulls also agreed to send michael ruffin to the blazers while portland will ship ike diogu to the sacramento kings.

i think the bulls just got better with this trade. john salmons is a good wingman who will play well alongside derrick rose. also, brad miller is a great passing center who can rebound as well which means the bulls are not jeopardizing their inside presence.

fortunately, the bulls will no longer face shaq and the phoenix suns this season. after all, the last time shaq tried to rearrange brad's face, miller was wearing a bulls jersey.
