Default Deng contract talks break down

http://espn.go.com/chicago/nba/story...xtension-talks

Here's what I find interesting about this: In this day and age we know everything about what a player wants money wise, and playing time wise. Yet...no contract details released. Not years, not dollars, not how far apart they were, why contract talks broke down in the middle of September when they have a few more weeks to work out something, Nothing.

What's really interesting though could be whether or not this is gonna make the fissure between Thibs and management(dare I say ownership?) more apparent. Seeing as Deng is a huge, huge, huge, HUGE part of Thibs' plans for the defense and offensive sets.

My guess? Releasing contract proposals does nothing but undermine the team's position. If Team X knows that Chicago offered a 12m a year deal, suddenly it's that much easier to bid. Not to mention Deng is still under contract, and the amount of money and years offered is an indication of interest/belief in Deng as a player. Other teams having that knowledge would hurt the Bulls in the event of a trade.

Agreed, but on the other hand usually the player (or his agent) releases what they're asking for and why they aren't getting that much. Even if that's typically the blame game. I mean we saw that Taj, and too a way lesser extent Noah's deal.

Crystallas, I agree. Just saying it's weird. We even know when a player has diarrhea I just think it's strange. Especially with the gamble that Melo opts out. I don't think he will because he's whipped as all hell by his wife but still. And godforbid LeBron opts out as well.

I don't think we as fans looking on the outside looking in can insinuate that we know the motives of either party...it's best just to wait and find out.

If Kobe plays a couple games first, that's exactly the kind of gamble I'd like to see. I would prefer the Bulls exploring a trade for Granger, or someone similar in skill set, as he's younger and (likely) cheaper... But Kobe would be nice.
