Scottie Pippen heard his name come up in several trade rumors throughout his seventeen-year NBA career in which he spent with the Chicago Bulls, Houston Rockets, and Portland Trail Blazers. The rumors began in 1994 after Pippen refused to re-enter a playoff game against the New York Knicks because he was upset that Bulls coach Phil Jackson designed the last play of the game for Toni Kukoc. Rumors surrounding Pippen later came up around the trade deadline in '95 and before the '97 draft as well. However, he stayed put in Chicago until '99 when he was shipped to Houston in a sign-and-trade deal. After being traded to Portland, where he spent five seasons, and returning to Chicago for a year, he retired in 2004. In 2007, Pippen announced he wanted to make a comeback.
