Sources: Bulls are Crawford’s Top Choice
Sources close to the situation say the Bulls are (Jamal) Crawford’s first choice, although he is interested in offers from New Orleans and Indiana, both teams have the means to acquire him without a trade from Atlanta.
The Orlando Magic were one of several teams to reach out to Crawford, however sources list the Magic as lower on the list, with Chicago sitting in the top spot.
Sources close to the process say the Bulls’ sign and trade offer is built around Ronnie Brewer and possible Bulls’ reserve big man Omar Asik. The Bulls are also said to be after Kurt Thomas to re-sign with the team, however Thomas is said to be weighing offers including overtures from the Knicks.
