It’s no doubt that the Bulls are shopping disgruntled power forward Tyrus Thomas. He's been ridiculed ever since he was drafted fourth overall by the Portland Trail Blazers and then traded along with Viktor Khryapa to the Bulls for second overall pick LaMarcus Aldridge.
Thomas, although he is only 23-years-old, seems to have worn out his welcome in Chicago as numerous incidents involving his poor attitude have marred his short career. Now, none of these personal blow-ups seemed to be anything too detrimental to the team, but his 7.8 points and 5.1 rebounds per game over his career have been.
