Great signing.  It'll give them some solid floor spacing on the cheap when/if Rose returns this season.

Situational minutes is probably all he will play on that team. They already have Belinelli who can shoot the 3.

My 2K13 team with the Bulls is even more stacked, im pumped

Bulls will dump Rip's contract(Suns are mentioned) near the deadline to avoid luxury tax, so Cook will get PT behind Belinelli.

why the heck would the Suns take Rip Hamilton? They suck as is, getting a washed up SG isn't the way to go.

Depending on where you look, Rip's contract beyond this year is either a team option or only worth $1 million guaranteed. So it's possible that he could be moved to a team looking to shed longer-term salary commitments.

Bulls are right up against the taxpayer threshold, though, so any move would have to bring them back less salary for this year. Could make things a little tricky for them. And, if the Bulls are making a playoff run when Rose returns, they may prefer to keep Rip's shooting (assuming he's healthy).

He has only 1M guaranteed for next year. And you are right they can only add 1.2M if they wanna stay under the tax. That's why their most obvious trade partners are teams that are under the cap.

Additionally, adding Cook's salary means the Bulls can only take back $1,235,916 when inevitably salary dumping Rip to stay under the tax.

It would be smart for a team like the Suns to take on a player like Rip Hamilton, whose contract is structured so that he is practically an expiring contract, if they can get a draft pick or another asset for the future.
