Two-Point Diversion: Spring Training & Tyrus For Jefferson??

Two-Point Diversion is your daily dose of Chicago sports talking points. Head to the water cooler with knowledge, people.

Don't Look Now But the Cubs Report in Less Than Two Days
Pitchers and catchers are due to report to the Cubs Arizona-based training camp on Wednesday. So if you're looking for a warm, sunny weekend escape from the Chicago winter and you can't wait til Opening Day at Wrigley Field, head to the southwest with your mitt and a sixer of Old Style. The White Sox open up camp on Saturday.

Now The Timber Wolves Want Tyrus??
Seemingly every team in the NBA has given Jon Paxson and Gar Forman a call in the past few weeks to get a "kick the tires" Q 'n A about Tyrus Thomas. The talented and petulant Thomas has been rumored in trade talks to Portland, Denver, San Antonio and now Minnesota. The Bulls who have many a whole to fill would likely get some draft picks for T^2 and potentially some cap space and dusty Kevin Garnett action figures? In any case, Tyrus should expect to forward his mail to a new address and zip code by Thursday's trade deadline.

In other Bulls related news, Derrick Rose sat out practice on Monday at the Berto Center after a solid 15 minutes of run at Sunday's All-Star Game, while Joakim Noah practiced for the first time and is expected to play on Tuesday against the Knicks for the first time in five games.
