Meanwhile, Tyrus Thomas of LSU pulled out of his solo workout for the Blazers that had been scheduled for Tuesday.
Art Sasse, Blazers vice president of communication, said Thomas’ agent informed the Blazers that a team with a higher pick had promised it would select Thomas.

Speculation is that Chicago is the team that has targeted Thomas

The problem for Charlotte is that its not a given that their other invites will show up either. Tyrus Thomas is also rumored to have pulled out of the workout, as he did yesterday with the Portland Trailblazers.

Many feel that a deal is already in place for a team to trade for the Bulls #2 pick, and that Thomas has been informed that he'll be the one taken there.

Information we received today says that as many as six teams are currently in the hunt to trade up for the #1 or #2 pick, and that its likely Adam Morrison that they covet. The six teams are Minnesota, Boston, Houston, Phoenix, Portland and Charlotte. Morrison could very well conduct workouts with the teams that appear most serious about trading up in the draft to get him.

Hmmm...interesting. I'd speculate that long rumored KG-to-Chicago deal might be finally about to happen, but surely we'd hear more of it by now if it were, right?

I want to know why? he's too small for C and PF yet to large, no range, no handling for the 3. So what is this guy worth in the NBA? Nothing!
