Nazr Mohammed Reportedly Agrees To Deal With Chicago Bulls

Nazr Mohammed seemed like a lock for the Brooklyn Nets but that seems to have changed.  According to a report, Mohammed has spurned the Nets and will sign with the Chicago Bulls.  This probably means the Bulls will not be matching the offer sheet on Omer Asik.

Well, this deal does make sense for the Bulls.  Mohammed will be a veteran minimum guy and the Bulls will not have to pay a lot for him.  He can still play some minutes and be effective so the Bulls end up with a cheap backup center as they try to avoid the luxury tax.

Bulls fans have to be sick of hearing about the luxury tax by now.  The Bulls have basically decided to throw this season away in order to wait for a better chance to contend.  Let’s just say that Bulls fans are lukewarm about any signing the team has made.  It won’t be a fun team to watch.

This isn’t a knock against Nazr Mohammed, who is a pro’s pro.  He is going to be asked to play too much probably and Bulls fans will get angry with him.  He can’t help it, but the Bulls are making sure to get someone cheap over someone who can make an actual impact.  That is basically a giant middle finger to the paying fans that support the team.

This deal is not officially done so Mohammed could change his mind again.  As of now, he is going to be playing in the Windy City on a team stuck in neutral.

Archie Goodwin Hits Epic Game-Winning Three

The Phoenix Suns are legit playing without five or six important members of their rotation currently, so guys who don't normally make the highlight reels are getting an incredible amount of playing time. This is the case for Archie Goodwin, who started at point guard in Brandon Knight's absence and hit this improbable three with time running out to cement a 98-95 win. Things haven't been go swimmingly in Phoenix this season, so it was awesome to see Suns fans and players alike enjoy this hard-fought win.

Rondo Perfectly Guesses Atlanta's Final Play

Say what you will about Rajon Rondo, but there's no way to deny that he's an incredibly smart basketball player. Last evening against the Atlanta Hawks, the Sacramento Kings were up by three points with 1.9 seconds left, and Atlanta had one final possession to tie things up. Rondo immediately recognized the play the Hawks had drawn up and directed DeMarcus Cousins to an empty space on the floor where the Hawks were planning to send a player to take a three. Rondo's smarts made the Hawks botch the play, and the Kings held serve for the win.
