Forward/Center Jordan Bell — Restricted

It was not long ago that big man Jordan Bell was drafted by the Bulls out of the University of Oregon. Bell was selected at no. 38 overall by the Bulls (whom also possess no. 38 this year as well, ironically enough). Almost immediately after being drafted, though, Bell was traded to the Warriors for cash — yep, that’s it. Just cash.

Now, two years later, Bell is a restricted free agent and the Warriors could end up keeping him when it’s all said and done. But, again, the Warriors are a team with a championship mindset each year, and will have to worry about paying other key guys as well.

Wouldn’t it be hilarious if the Bulls ended up shelling out some cash to land Bell, just two years after trading him for cash? Maybe it’s just me, but I find that funny — and it would totally be a GarPax thing to do.

This past season, Bell averaged just over three points, just under three rebounds and nearly a block a game for the Warriors; playing 11.6 minutes per game.
