    That's about the same as Rip is getting paid.

    I agree that Rip is on his way out.

    Now, Bulls can still match, but Joe was trying to go a bit higher than Bulls are able to go. We'll have to wait and see. There's another week before the signings can actually begin.

    If the earlier reports of a 5 year, $50 million offer from the Pistons was accurate and that Gordon was going to give the Bulls the chance to match, it looks like it cost us an additional $5 million to get R done.

    Re: Charlie V is ON board too..

    Villanueva, the seventh overall pick by Toronto in 2006 who has played all three of his NBA season with the Milwaukee Bucks, also agreed to a five-year deal. His contract is worth at least $35 million.

    AP reporting that Villi's contract is 5 years 35 million.

    They can't actually sign until the week from now, but they have both agreed. Also, Chicago could potentially match Gordon's offer, although Joe probably priced the contract out of their financial reach.

    I thought Gordon was an unrestricted FA
