Larry Hughes to Knicks, Tim Thomas to Bulls

The Bulls finally found a home for Larry Hughes.

Amusingly enough, it took bringing back formerly banished Bull Tim Thomas to do so.

Multiple league sources confirmed that the Bulls traded Hughes to the Knicks for Thomas, seldom-used big man Jerome James and Anthony Roberson, pending league approval.

The Bulls first acquired Thomas in the emotional Eddy Curry trade in October 2005. Shortly thereafter, management sent Thomas home for his poor practice habits. They eventually waived Thomas in March 2006.,0,2809280.story
