Marc Gasol thinks brother Pau should go to Spurs

Chicago Bulls center Pau Gasol will “very likely” opt out of his contract this summer and test the free-agent market. But where will he go? Surely some team out there could use a seven-footer with Gasol’s experience and ability.

“We have to explore all options.” These are the words of Chicago Bulls’ Vice President of basketball operations John Paxson.

Joakim Noah is ‘high priority’ for Bulls in free agency

So much for the Chicago Bulls letting Joakim Noah walk in free agency this summer. The Bulls didn’t look like a team wanting to bring back Noah, now 31 years old. He had already been relegated to a cheerleader role with Pau Gasol manning the middle, so better to cut ties and use the cap space to upgrade somewhere else. Noah seemed ready to leave, too, asking for more playing time...

Chicago Bulls: What to do in the offseason

Well, a disappointing season has finally ended for the Chicago Bulls.

Looking Ahead For The Chicago Bulls

For the first time since 2009, the Chicago Bulls are out of the playoffs. To say that this season has not met expectations is quite an understatement.
