If the signings of Ben Wallace and Peja Stojakovic prove anything, it's that Rod Thorn is right not to get "whacky" in a woeful free agent market. John Hollinger, who writes for the New York Sun and ESPN, says the Bulls overpaid for Wallace and the Hornets for Stojakovic. He adds Thorn and Isiah Thomas don't seem interested--"and I can't say I blame them. Free agency just ain't what it used to be, because the player pool is so diminished and the dollars required to obtain talent are so absurd."
