Keith Bogans Still Bitter Bulls Cut Him
(Keith) Bogans, who signed with the Nets last week, started every game for the Bulls last season and helped them to the East finals. But before the season started, he was unceremoniously waived by Chicago.
“Every time I play them for the rest of my career it’ll give me [something] added,” said Bogans, who started his first game for the Nets and scored seven points in 20 minutes.
Not only did the Bulls dump him — Bogans says he never got a reason — but they held Bogans out of practice for a week during the preseason. The team’s signing of Richard Hamilton made Bogans expendable, and the Bulls waited until the deadline when they would have had to pick up his $1.73 million option for this season to jettison him.
“That was kind of screwed up,” Bogans said. “But it’s a business, [stuff] happens. … That was kind of like a slap in the face a little bit, but it’s cool.”
