According to Alan Hahn of Newsday, the Bulls are shopping Tygger--and might offer him cheap to anyone willing to take Kirk Hinrich off their hands.
The rumor, as stated, seems to think that the Knicks have a shot at Thomas. But assuming he could get along with Nate and stay out of trouble--he'd be sweet on the Blazers bench. We haven't had a havoc-wreaking non-center since Ruben left--and I'm sure we could tolerate Captain Kirk's contract. (If the Knicks were to acquire Hinrich--I would be POd if I were Chris Duhon).
OTOH, I suspect this rumor is, like most rumors, silly.

Would you want Tyrus Thomas on the Blazers?
Yes! He's a game changing defender (33 votes)
Maybe! He's on rookie scale still, so we could get rid of him if it doesn't work out. (111 votes)
No. He's a Bad Character Dude, and Canzano would write lots (more) stories about sick children were TT to come to town. (43 votes)
