Hamilton Pays No Mind to Trade Rumors
After missing nearly a month because of a torn plantar fascia in his left foot, Chicago Bulls guard Richard Hamilton returned to the floor in Saturday night’s 87-77 win over the Washington Wizards, scoring nine points in 15 minutes.
It’s because of (Marco) Belinelli’s solid play and (Jimmy) Butler’s energy off the bench that Hamilton’s name has popped up in a lot of trade speculation throughout the league.
“I don’t pay attention to it,” said, who has a team option at the end of this season. “It happens every year. Every year, if you ain’t in a trade rumor, then you ain’t doing something right. That’s how I always looked at it. That’s the way this game goes, you hear about stuff every day because GM’s are talking to different players every day. It’s nothing that I even get caught up or think about or anything like that.”
