Rusty Simmons, of the San Francisco Chronicle is a member of the media attending the NBA Draft Combine in Chicago this week. Simmons, who covers the Golden State Warriors sent out a tweet listing a few things overheard by sources at the Combine. Simmons reports that C.J. Watson’s contract is not expected to be picked up by the Chicago Bulls for the 2012-2013 season. The Bulls hold a team option and must decide by July 1 – and as reports start to leak out, it’s not looking good for the Rose’s 2 year back-up. If the Bulls decide to let him go, they must bring in a starter, and rumblings have already begun surrounding FA veterans Jason Kidd and Steve Nash.

Nate Robinson (Golden State Warriors)

The Chicago Bulls season came to and end in the worst way possible for the franchise, as All-Star point guard Derrick Rose tore his ACL in the first game of their opening round series against the Philadelphia 76ers.
