Irritated Ben Wallace to sign with Bulls-

Associated Press-July 4, 2006
DETROIT - Free-agent center Ben Wallace is leaving the Detroit Pistons to sign with the Chicago Bulls, a person within the NBA said Monday.
The person, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because NBA free agents can’t officially sign contracts until July 12, said the Pistons offered Wallace a four-year contract worth about $50 million. That would have made him the highest-paid player on the team next season with a salary of $11.5 million. He will reportedly sign with the Bulls for $52 million over four years.
