Toronto_raptors_vs_4a05
Andrea Bargnani just got himself healthy and back onto the court, and the Toronto Raptors are already discussing traded.  They have long-wanted to move Bargnani, but he hurt himself and the team had to wait for him to recover.  Now, with Bargnani healthy again, they can start up trade talks.  And they have.According to Aggrey Sam of CSN Chicago, the Raptors have talked to the Chicago Bulls about a trade that would send Bargnani to Chicago in exchange for Carlos Boozer.  There is reportedly no traction in those talks just yet, but considering they've only been going on for a day, it's possible that the discussion could pick up steam.Bargnani is a productive big man, but he may clash with the coaching style of Tom Thibodeau.  Coach Thibodeau is a no-nonsense coach who expects his players to play by his rules.  Bargnani may not be willing to do so.  But he can certainly be productive.  He has averaged 15.9 points and 4.3 rebounds per game.If the Bulls were to move Boozer, it would be almost entirely for financial reasons.  The club would save money on Boozer's contract compared with Bargnani's.  Boozer is a veteran who has performed better than Bargnani this season.  He has averaged 15.7 points and 9.4 rebounds per game.Follow @hoopsinjurynews!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://www.nbainjurynews.com//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs"); var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-34100676-1']); _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']); (function() { var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true; ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ?

Fashion Glance: worst dressed Chicago Bull; Luol Deng, Carlos Boozer, Rip Hamilton or Joakim Noah

Nate Robinson posed the question on Instagram, “whose the worst dressed Bull.” If we are strictly going off this picture, I say you can take Joakim out of the equation. He doesn’t look bad but he should be practicing the Coco Chanel rule of removing one accessory. In this case, the only accessory. That rosary/ necklace thing is not the move.   Rip looks a little disheveled...
