This from the Chicago Tribune:
At the 11th hour of last summer's free-agent market, Memphis owner and St. Charles resident Michael Heisley tried to woo Scottie Pippen. Heisley, who has said he got into ownership because of the Bulls' title teams with Pippen and Michael Jordan, had lunch with Pippen in Chicago.
"It was flattering because he's still a Bulls fan," Pippen said. "But I didn't really consider [Memphis]. I just listened."
Thanks, Scottie! We'll take James Posey instead...
