(The common perception of Scal hurts.)
Sam Smith, long-time Chicago Bulls reporter and author of “The Jordan Rules”, reports that the Bulls might be interested in signing Brian Scalabrine. I guess they didn’t read Tom Haberstroh’s latest column. (bulls.com)
I think Finley is too old at this point, but Scalabrine is a guy the Bulls have talked with a lot this summer and especially with Thibodeau I can see him as possible depending on what goes on regarding Fernandez. I know guys like Steve Novak have been at the Berto working out more in pickup type games, which the Bulls do with guys before the season. The job, for now unless it’s Fernandez, is a 12th or 13th man who might play a day a week. You need a good team guy willing to root a lot and Scalabrine would be that.
Fans spent so much time mock cheering Scal and pretending he was the special needs kid at the end of a fourth-grade CYO bench that they failed to recognize one thing: Scal’s actually not too bad. For a 12th or 13th man, the Bulls could do worse.
