Tyrus Tweets 'bout Trades

Remember the proposed three-way trade between Chicago, Utah and Portland last week? The one involving Carlos Boozer to the Bulls, Tyrus Thomas to the Utah Jazz and Kirk Hinrich to Portland? Well, the Blazers decided to nix that by outright offering a sexy contract to Jazz forward of the future, Paul Milsap, Utah which is already strapped financially after reupping with Mehmet Okur, et al, now has seven days to match Portland's offer to Milsap.

Meanwhile, this puts the Bulls components: Tyrus and Kirk on the back burners of both Utah and Portland respectively. However, Utah is still expected to try and trade Boozer so there's a glimmer of something for Tyrus (sadly) being shipped to Salt Lake City for the Booze Man. Which isn't a terrible deal. The Bulls would essentially be "renting" Boozer for next season, it's just, y'know, Tyrus is pretty rad. And speaking to the radness of Tyrus, behold the people's champ's twitter site!, replete with "LMAO," complaints about babies on planes, people farting on planes, and, indeed, even well spoken notions re: trade scuttlebutts:

t_time24: "No I'm not traded. Just switching locations for the weekend!"

or this gem,

t_time24: "To clear the record, I never commented on playing with D Will [Utah's pretty awesome point guard]. And I am a BULL. Let it go people!"
