Sources said the Bulls plan to sign Noah's fellow Florida alum Chris Richard to a 10-day contract.
Richard, a late training-camp cut by the Bulls, suddenly is needed to shore up a depleted frontcourt that no longer has Aaron Gray and features Taj Gibson battling plantar fasciitis in his right foot and Miller nursing a sore left knee.
I really don't have much to add to this report, aside from me not being a fan.
According to yfBB (now on twitter!), Sam Smith mentioned Rob Kurz, Dwayne Jones, Jared Reiner, and Chris Richard.
For the record, I would've taken all of the above over Richard, who's averaging a pedestrian 10.1 points and 8.6 boards in the D-League with the Tulsa 66ers. In Richard's last D-League game, he got into foul trouble (a usual occurence) and finished with nine points and three boards in 27 minutes against Luke Nevill.
Mark Deeks summarizes my other thought via his Twitter account:
Richard was here before, though! He knows the plays! Can't execute them, but dammit he knows them! Hooray!
Yay, Bulls! At least you didn't call-up JamesOn Curry, I guess.
[Note by Scott Schroeder, 02/05/10 12:15 AM CST ] I would've called-up Raymond Sykes.
