Less Than A Month Left

Reports from around the world on contract negotiations local reporters have only guessed about.

From New York City (thanks to wjb):
Ben Gordon wants a $70 million extension from the Bulls, who are looking to give Gordon no more than Kirk Hinrich money ($47.5 million) and first want to extend Luol Deng, a player they regard more highly than the Mount Vernon product.
From the UK:
[Luol Deng] is currently in negotiation with his team, the Chicago Bulls, over a five-year contract worth £30MILLION — working out at a whopping £115,000 a week. (something like $60 million -hscs)
Is this stuff to be believed? Probably not, but it's fun to read the speculation, and Gordon definitely deserves a bump ahead of Kirk Hinrich.
