What you see is (probably) what you’re going to get

Derrick Rose, John Salmons, Kirk Hirich, Jannero Pargo and (rarely) Lindsey Hunter in the backcourt. Luol Deng (assuming he’s healthy), Tyrus Thomas, James Johnson and Taj Gibson at the forward positions. Joakim Noah and Brad Miller playing center. Aaron Gray and Jerome James watching silently from the end of the bench. Barring the inexplicable and unforseen, […]

Does Kirk know something we don’t?

According to Shania Sampson of the BlockShopper: “Chicago Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich has listed for sale his four bedroom, 3.5-bath at 816 Castlewood Lane in Deerfield for the asking price of $829,000. Hinrich paid $906,500 for the home in Aug. 2004. The 4,000-square-foot home was built in 2004 in the subdivision of Deerfield Park.” So […]

Jerry Reinsdorf answers questions

Brian Hanley of the Chicago Sun-Times had an interesting and rather revealing little Q&A with Bulls Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf. (And the interview continues here.) I highly suggest reading the whole thing, but here are a few quick hits: Ben Gordon no longer fit in with the Bulls:“Now, fast forward to the end of [last season], we have [John] Salmons […]

Boozer: I love Miami

Less than a week ago, Carlos Boozer was telling ESPN Radio 1000’s Tom Waddle and Marc Silverman that Chicago was his kind of town. In fact, I believe his exact words were something along the lines of “Great organization, top notch from top to bottom…I’d love to be part of the Chicago Bulls.” Love sure is a […]

Bulls finish Summer League play

The Bulls’ Summer League schedule ended with a 93-85 victoryover the Minnesota Timberwolves. That gave them three straight wins and a 3-2 record overall. Rookie James Johnson led the team with 18 points and 7 rebounds. In five summer games, Johnson compiled some nice all-around averages: 16.6 PPG, 7.0 RPG and 3.6 APG. His 40 percent shooting was a little low […]

So the Jazz will keep Paul Millsap…

It’s official: The Utah Jazz have matched the offer sheet Paul Millsap signed with the Portland Trail Blazers. And what a hefty offer it was, worth $32 million over four years. This is yet another confirmation that Millsap is Utah’s future at the power forward position…and Carlos Boozer is their past. So of course it’s time for a fresh […]

A little Summer League perspective

I love the NBA Summer League. It provides the perfect opportunity for rookies (and a handful of non-rookies) to pad their stats so the media and fans can get way too excited about contests that are slightly less meaningful than preseason games. Golden State’s Anthony Randolph “ravaged” the Bulls for 42 points while Chicago rookies James Johnson (21 points) […]

Boozer-to-Bulls rumors heating up again

Carlos Boozer had a nice little chat with ESPN Radio 1000’s Tom Waddle and Marc Silverman today, during which he confirmed that the Jazz have agreed to trade him. When asked whether he might be shipped to Chi-town, Boozer said: “I definitely heard a little rumbling about it, whether it will go down or not. It’s […]

Tim Thomas: Bought out

First the Bulls signed a backup combo guard. Then they re-signed their backup-backup point guard. And now they’ve reached a contract settlement with Tim “The Human Coffee Break” Thomas. Exciting times in the Windy City folks…banner number seven here we come! Okay. Sarcasm over. For now. Thomas had one year remaining on his contract at $6,466,600, which […]

Lindsey Hunter: Re-signed

According to ESPN’s Marc Stein, the Bulls have reached terms with Lindsey Hunter: One-year for the vet’s minimum of $1.3 million. This is one of those Geico Insurance moves. You know, where a team pays for a player in the hopes they’ll never have to actually play them. Last season, Hunter appeared in 28 games […]
