Find new trade machine fodder, Mavs fans: John Salmons has been sent to Chicago along with Brad Miller for Andres Nocioni and Drew Gooden. A good catch for the Bulls, who ditch Noc’s contract and essentially get two contributors for Gooden’s contract. Is it enough for a Chicago playoff push? We’ll see. Either way, I’m not sure I understand why the Kings are trading their valuable assets (practically half the league wanted Salmons) for overpaid backups.
