CHICAGO (Chicago Tribune) - About the only definitive result from a very fluid day is that, as expected, Ronnie Brewer won't play for the Bulls next season at his $4.37 million team option and C.J. Watson also won't be back at his $3.2 million salary.
Tuesday's deadline to pick up those options came and went, although Brewer said general manager Gar Forman told his agent he might be re-signed at a reduced salary.
"I will definitely test the market, though," Brewer said in a phone interview from his basketball camp in Arkansas. "Whatever team I end up going to, I know I'm going to have another improved year."
The Bulls explored trade possibilities for both players in an attempt to turn their non-guaranteed deals into assets, league sources said. They are doing the same with Kyle Korver, who has been told a resolution on his $5 million option will be finalized by Sunday, sources said.
