Will The Bulls Keep Gordon?

Ben Gordon hasn’t given up on staying with the Bulls, but he does see the writing on the wall. The Bulls don’t want to pay the luxury tax, and unless that policy changes, they have a finite amount of money to offer Gordon to start a new contract. Add it up over six years, and the restricted free agent would have to accept a smaller average salary (about $9.8 million) than the team offered him last summer. “It looks that way,” he said Friday. “I don’t think they want to lose their leading scorer for nothing. Maybe they do, I don’t know.”
