There are conflicting reports today on whether Tim Thomas will become a Net. Thomas tells the Record there's a "pretty good chance" he'll join New Jersy, but Nets officials have been led to believe that the Bulls are playing hardball with the 6'-10" forward. Bulls GM John Paxson has reportedly told Thomas' agent that Chicago doesn't want him playing for conference rivals New Jersey or Philadelphia. Thomas says he expects a resolution within hours.
