    They can keep Miller but I'll take that #4 pick.

    Over at www.realgm.com I was reading their WireTap and I saw a little blurb worth mentioning. The Bulls could try to move Miller/#4 to the Clippers for the #2 pick in the draft.

    Does this seem like something the Clippers would do? The Bulls are obviously trying to move up to acquire Curry. Since it seems that the Hawks are a lock to draft Battier at #3 unless they trade down, the Clippers would still be able to draft one of the top 4 players: Curry/Brown/Battier/Griffin.

    Seems like a win/win proposition for the Clips.

    I'm also DYING to know, can we exercise the team option and release Brad Miller if we get him?


    Cause if we can, that means we lose cato's contract, we lose Shandon, we re-sign Dream.

    Cato, Shandon, #13, #22 for Miller, #4, cap filler.

    They get more experienced players than they have. Miller doesn't wanna be there. Floyd wants Cato. two first rounders.

    They get depth and older players, whi IS what they're looking for.

    Miller can't be traded unless Chicago first picks up the team option. Otherwise he's a free agent. So, if you trade for Miller, then you won't have the option to release him in order to free up cap space.

    Heat, Knicks still after Miller


    June 3, 2001
    BY ROMAN MODROWSKI STAFF REPORTER


    Brad Miller's old suitors are in pursuit again as the New York Knicks and Miami Heat, who both tried to work trades for the Bulls center before the February deadline, are again on Miller's trail, according to the New York Post.

    The Heat may be willing to part with Brian Grant for Miller and the Bulls' No. 4 draft pick, although that might be too steep a price for Bulls general manager Jerry Krause. The Knicks may try to work a sign-and-trade deal with Allan Houston, although Houston would have to agree to join the rebuilding Bulls, which is unlikely, and the Bulls would have to include another player.

    Miller's agent, Mark Bartelstein, said he and Krause planned to discuss Miller's future, including trade possibilities, this weekend. Krause signed Miller to a three-year deal with only the first year guaranteed. If the Bulls don't pick up the option for the remaining two years, Miller becomes a free agent July 1, but Krause surely would want to get something in return for the 7-footer.

    Krause has said no player is untouchable, which means Elton Brand's name also has come up in trade discussions. Krause has said it would take a knockout deal to pry away Brand, but after a three-year record of 45-169 and no foreseeable help through free agency, a knockout trade might be the only way for the Bulls to get on track.

    The Post also reported that the Knicks and Heat are interested in Seattle SuperSonics point guard Gary Payton, who has asked the Sonics for a contract extension.
