Report: Aaron Gray traded to Hornets for Devin Brown

By Sean Mackey

Holy crap! The Bulls made a trade!

The Bulls are shipping the "White Flag" Aaron Gray to the New Orleans Hornets for 6th man, Devin Brown. This is an interesting trade since I believe A-Gray had a no trade clause. This guy has been a fan favorite since day 1 but never got the chance to develop into the low post threat the Bulls wanted him to. He's been a cheerleader most of this year since he was injured and VDN's been on the hot seat.

Devin Brown recently lit the Bulls up for 22 points back on 12/26 shooting 6-7 from the 3 point line. According to Blog a Bull, Brown has a 10% trade kicker, which puts the Bulls over $200k more in 2009-10 committed salary.

I have a feeling that this was a lateral move but I'm sure it's the beginning of a bigger deal looming. Does this mean Salmons and/or Hinrich are on their way out? By this time next month, we'll know for sure.

Also, sorry for the lack of updates. The Bulls are sooooo average right now. They win 2 or 3 games, then lost 2 or 3 games and can't get over .500. I just can't get excited about it. The Bulls need a shake up. I'll be way more into this season when one actually happens.
