Scott's agent, Bob Woolf, said he has had conversations with Bull management about the 32-year-old free-agent guard. Interest in the former Laker apparently predated Jordan's Wednesday announcement, although Chicago officials may have known such a decision was coming. What effect the retirement will have is not known, since the Bulls now have a much bigger slot to use in pursuit of a player.
Scott spent 10 seasons with the Lakers before a mutual parting of the ways this summer based on the team's youth movement. He averaged 13.7 points and 28.9 minutes in 58 games, 53 of which were starts, during 1992-93.
