Default Bulls Guard Flip Murray Says He'd Happily Return to Bobcats

Quote:
Bulls guard Flip Murray said on Wednesday that he'd happily come back to Charlotte next season if the Bobcats were interested in signing him.

Murray, a sporadically potent scorer, will be a free agent this summer. For now, he will try to help the Bulls combat the #1 seed Cavaliers in the first round.

I can't speak for all our fans but I'd gladly welcome him back!

Yep would be a nice return for us! Good there aren't any hard feelings and that him being traded was just the nature of the business.

Flip's a standup guy.

So it would be a choice between Flip and DJ. DJ would want a trade and we would end up losing him to a team that will allow him to blossom. We've done other stupid things. Like trade Jason Kapono for Matt who????

I don't think it would have to be Flip or DJ... DJ would be in his 3rd year and should be able to handle back up point fine -- that's also assuming Felton comes back. If Felton didn't come back, then obviously DJ would become the starting PG and there would be no beef.

I would welcome Flip back, he seemed to keep the team in good spirits too.

With a smaller cap, I can see us letting Felton go somewhere and giving DJ the starting job. We'd use our cap room to either bring back some expiring guys (if we have any) or get a good big that won't get injured and play worth a crap every night.

If Flip comes back we can pretty much forget about DJ. The fact that DJ has had playing time since Flip was traded away is what's given DJ his confidence and his game back. Relegated behind Flip once again would cause DJ to devolve and become worthless again.

What I'm saying is, if Flip comes back, that doesn't mean the roles are going to be exactly the same as last year. I mean, Flip IS getting older, who knows how much he'll slow down.

I guess it more depends on if Felton stays or leaves. If he leaves, then DJ would be primary PG, so Flip wouldn't cut in at all. If Felton stays, then yeah, Flip would probably cut into DJ's minutes; but I don't think it would be as much as this past year.

So when do we start speculating (fretting) about where Felts will be next year? I can't imagine that we'd let another team take him from us. But I sure hope that the negotiations don't turn into another Okafor-type fiasco.
Okay. Deep breaths. Too premature to think about that now...

I can't imagine the Cats without Felton but the fact that he turned down 6 mil already doesn't look good.

Isn't this coming season the time when LeBron, Bosh and the likes are going to be free agents? With players like them available, who the hell is going to be willing to spend a ton of money on Felton?? Felton had better be willing to accept 6mil to 8mil per year for five years because how many other alternatives is he going to have?

So many teams aren't going to get a superstar and blow their money on some solid starter but pay them star money. If a team offers Felton 12 million why would he stay here for 8 or 9 and if we match then we'll be burdened with another bad deal. Plus of course being unrestricted, he could deside to go even if we matched. NY could get him and Rudy Gay to go with Lee and Gallinari and still have room to try and land Amare or Bosh

I dont know who is going to give him more, he's a free agent at a horrible time.

One of the positives from the Orlando series...Felton will most likely be had for a much better deal.

Assuming of course we want him back. With the alternatives all being inferior I'd think we would...but who knows.
