Report: Knicks, Bulls and Magic among teams interested in Hornets’ Marco Belinelli
New Orleans Hornets restricted free agent Marco Belinelli reportedly has interest from the New York Knicks, Orlando Magic, Chicago Bulls and Golden State Warriors, according to a report from Eric Pincus of HoopsWorld.com:
[M[arco is looking at other teams. The Chicago Bulls, Orlando Magic, Golden State Warriors and New York Knicks have interest.
The report said that the Clippers had interest in the Italian guard but with the team expected to sign Suns free agent Grant Hill, it’s unlikely Belinelli would still be in their sights. Pincus reported that with the Bulls trade to send Kyle Korver to the Atlanta Hawks, Chicago could be in prime position to sign a crafty guard like Belinelli.
Belinelli, 26, had the best season of his career last year with the Hornets, averaging 11.8 points on 41-percent shooting in 29 minutes. He made $3.3 million last year and the Hornets will have three days to match any offer he receives.
