Chicago Bulls Interested in Jermaine O’Neal?

If the Bulls decide to select Memphis point guard Derrick Rose with the top pick in the draft this month, they might seek to fill their need for a low-post scorer by acquiring Indiana Pacers forward Jermaine O’Neal . The Pacers would prefer not to deal O’Neal within the Central Division, but they might not have much choice. O’Neal has two years and $44 million left on his contract and a recent history of injuries, so few teams would be in position — or willing — to make a play for the 12-year veteran. [Chicago Sun-Times]
