    Jared Homan signs with Bulls

    Big Ben's band is back on ChicagoSports.com

    Mentions at the bottom of the article. Just a training camp invite I'm sure but Bulls could use another big guy so hope he works his butt off and impresses.

    … The Bulls signed free agents Andre Barrett, John Blair, Justin Cage, Thomas Gardner and Jared Homan.

    Good chance he will be playing in Des Moines then.

    Unfortunately my guess is there isn't much of a chance unless the Bulls sign him to a deal. Homan was making good money playing oversees. I doubt he would take a giant paycut and start playing in the D-league. That would be pretty sweet if he did though.

    True, and that is something the NBA really needs to adress if they want the D-League to really explode. They have to get 'prospects' in the league. The way I see it there is only one way to do it and that would be to take a baseball like approach. Expand the Draft to 3-4 rounds, give signing bonuses and minor league contracts. Each team would also have 'control' over the player for at least 3 years. Unfortunately this would open up a whole other can of worms as you would have more people jumping to the pros and of course the issue of guaranteed contracts.

    Not necessarily. The D-league doesn't pay that great so he could opt to play overseas again.

    I defintely agree with you. Who wants to play in the D-League (unless you are under contract with a NBA team) and make $40,000 when you can be making well over 6-figures oversees? Not many is the answer.

    I didn't think you even made 40k playing in the D-League.

    Making money playing basketball works for me. Even if its 40k a year.

    He and Jackson Vroman have been making a lot more than that overseas. Plus usually expenses are paid for, and no taxes.

    Re: Jared Homan signs with Bulls

    I saw Homan on TV tonight during a Mavs preseason game. He got 4 minutes at the end and made a couple of buckets. He scored the last bucket of the game, which got the score to 100, and the fans started cheering very loudly. Apparently, there is some promotion that gives something to the fans if the Bulls hit 100, so Homan will be a fan favorite at least for tonight...
