[Note by your friendly BullsBlogger, 06/17/09 8:52 AM CDT: I'm comandeering this existing fanpost, since there's already some comments.
I can understand why the Bulls now would begin to look away from Gordon.
I haven't heard they are, and General Manager Gar Forman has not come off his stance that he wants to bring Gordon back. But I also heard that Gordon's agent allegedly has been saying he has an $11 million promise from the Pistons.
Sam's likely full of it (can't call BG's agent yourself?), or it's the Bulls feeding him preeemptive 'BG will be too much!' talk.
Or the Bulls boned themselves not signing Gordon earlier. By the way, a $11m annual 5-year contract can start at ~$9m. If this is true, I can't think of an incentive for Gordon to informally let the Bulls 'match' the offer. -ed.]
