Thomas Buyout Talks Heating Up

Dave D'Alessandro of the Star-Ledger reports that talks between Bulls GM John Paxson and Tim Thomas's agent have heated up since the trade deadline. The 6'-10" forward could be waived as early as Sunday. Thomas may not have the option of joining the Sixers. Paxson wants assurances that Thomas will not sign with Philadelphia, who Chicago is chasing in the playoff race. Meanwhile, Jason Collins, Thomas' former nemesis, said he wouldn't have a problem watching the banished Bull's back.
