Breaking: Farewell, John Salmons Rumors

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.

Hat tip to commenter David.

    Looks like NJ isn’t making the playoffs. Wonder how this will affect VC’s availability…
