Orlando Woolridge

Chicago Bulls
6-9 215 Forward

Became free agent after making $300,000 last season... Wants huge raise, but went about seeking it in strange way, missing some regular-season games to press demands... A few teams soured on him after that... Quality offensive player who rebounds like someone half his size... Should take some lessons in fortitude from cousin Willis Reed... Born Dec. 16, 1959, in Mansfield, La.... Not counting injured Michael Jordan, he led team in scoring and had single-game high of 44 points... Would thrive on a team that needs his scoring, like the Nets... Might continue to get overlooked and sulk if he continues to play in Jordan's shadow in Chicago... Bulls drafted him sixth overall in 1981, after brilliant career at Notre Dame.
