The Chicago Bulls are continuing to explore ways to improve— or maybe merely maintain— the quality of their roster while staying under the NBA's luxury tax line, and one of their more recent pursuits has been trying to rid themselves of shooting guard Richard Hamilton. K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reported on Friday that Chicago is shopping Hamilton and his expiring deal, but have at the moment found no takers.
Hamilton is guaranteed $5 million in the upcoming season and only $1 million in 2013-2014, but the Bulls are having trouble finding a team willing to take on a 34-year-old shooting guard who played in only 28 games last season. The Bulls could likely find a trade partner at some point before the trade deadline, but that won't help in their pursuit to match Omer Asik's offer sheet with the Houston Rockets.
