Bulls waive Thomas, at least for now
By Nick Friedell
CHICAGO -- Malcolm Thomas has been waived by the Bulls, but he could eventually be brought back to fill out the roster. The Bulls are waiting to see how the rest of the free agency market shakes out before making a decision.
Yahoo! Sports reported last week that the Bulls have interest in veteran center Marcus Camby. When asked recently during the Las Vegas Summer League whether Camby may be brought in to play behind Joakim Noah and Nazr Mohammed, Bulls GM Gar Forman had this to say:
"I wouldn't want to get into specific players' (situations)," Forman said. "But we do still have a roster spot to fill and we'll continue to look at the market and if we think there's somebody that makes us better we'll try to add, but at this point we're happy with the team that we have. We think Mike (Dunleavy's) going to be a real nice addition to the team and we're looking forward to getting going."
Thomas played in just 12 games last season after being signed late in the year.
