Brian Scalabrine Signs With Bulls

By on September 22, 2010 in

The Chicago Bulls and Brian Scalabrine just recently negotiated a non-guaranteed deal for him to reunite with first-year head coach Tom Thibodeau. Despite his lack of numbers during the Celtics 2009-2010 campaign, the nine-year veteran provides plenty of playoff experience. During his time in New Jersey and Boston he made four finals appearances, including the C’s¬†title run in ’08.

Scalabrine was hoping to remain in Boston next season, spending a good amount of time at the Celtics practice facility in Waltham, MA this summer. “I’m just an optimistic guy,” he said. “If I don’t have a job in the league and I gotta go to Europe, I’m optimistic. It’s weird, right, in this league? If I’m not back in Boston I still have my wife, two kids, I’ll still love them, still move on. I’m raising two little girls to become special people. That’s how I look at it.”

The Bulls are currently in the discussion to bring in Carmelo Anthony from the Denver Nuggets. Denver previously offered their franchise¬†player a three-year extension worth $65 million. It’s believed that the New York Knicks and New Jersey Nets are among the other top teams in contention to land the 3x All-Star. Chicago Bulls tickets are now available!
