The Bobcats are close to landing Tyrus Thomas in a deal with the Bulls that would send expiring contracts and a future protected (according to Ric Bucher) first round pick to Chicago, a person with knowledge of the situation told CBSSports.com.

A source told Yahoo! that a deal between the Bulls and Knicks for Thomas is now considered a longshot.

Update: Yahoo! reports that Acie Law and Flip Murray will be the two players sent to Chicago for Thomas if this deal is finalized.

*sighs* Missed out on another one. The biggest deal the Knicks complete before the trade deadline will be Nate + Cardinal for House + Giddens.
