December 15th, 2012 at 3:46 PM
The Chicago Bulls resume the toughest stretch of their season so far Saturday night in the United Center as they play the newly-minted Brooklyn Nets for the first time. Despite being a relatively important early season matchup between two likely playoff teams, the prevailing storyline coming into this game is the...

Chicago Bulls Wave Goodbye to C.J. Watson and Ronnie Brewer
July 10th, 2012 at 8:47 PM
***PHOTO1*** We figured this day was coming for quite some time, but even so, it's still a tough pill to swallow when two key members of your team the last couple of seasons are let go. That's exactly what happened to the Chicago Bulls on Tuesday, as they declined to...

Chicago Bulls Stuck in Neutral as Other Contenders Improve
July 9th, 2012 at 3:17 PM
The Miami Heat have added Ray Allen for cheap. The Los Angeles Lakers have landed Steve Nash in exchange for draft picks. The Brooklyn Nets have acquired Joe Johnson and are possibly on the verge of getting Dwight Howard for very little. Countless other teams have made moves to bolster their...

Former Bull Kirk Hinrich Agrees to Return to Chicago
July 8th, 2012 at 12:50 PM
Kirk Hinrich made things official today when he and the Chicago Bulls agreed in principle on a two-year, $6 million contract. KC Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports the deal is for the mini-mid-level exception, rather than the full mid-level, which means the Bulls can still add salary. If they...

Chicago Bulls Bullets: Free Agency Prep Edition
June 30th, 2012 at 10:13 PM
We're just a couple hours away from the beginning of the 2012 free agency free period, so I figured I'd get a quick post up looking at how things stand with the Chicago Bulls. Let's dive right in:  There's been a recent revelation by many of the beat writers that the...

Analyzing the Chicago Bulls’ 2012 NBA Draft
June 29th, 2012 at 12:06 PM
Heading into the 2012 NBA Draft, I admitted to having no idea what the Chicago Bulls were going to do. The Luol Deng rumors that had been whipping around earlier in the week had died down, which was somewhat disappointing, yet expected. As much as I love Deng, I was...

Chicago Bulls GM Gar Forman Talks Marquis Teague, Luol Deng Trade Rumors
June 29th, 2012 at 12:55 AM
Heading into the 2012 NBA Draft, most Chicago Bulls fans did not have Kentucky point guard Marquis Teague on their radar. Hell, Bulls management did not even have him on their radar, because nobody thought that he would fall to 29. But when the Bulls were finally on the clock,...

Chicago Bulls Select Kentucky Point Guard Marquis Teague with 29th Pick in 2012 NBA Draft
June 28th, 2012 at 9:44 PM
The Chicago Bulls selected a point guard with the 29th pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, but it was not Tyshawn Taylor as rumored earlier in the day. Instead, the Bulls snagged Kentucky point guard Marquis Teague, who unexpectedly fell to the end of the first round.  Teague - the younger...

Derrick Rose Injury Has Chicago Bulls Linked to Jonny Flynn and Rafer Alston
June 28th, 2012 at 3:44 PM
Derrick Rose's ACL injury was a huge bummer. Obviously. The Chicago Bulls' 2011-12 championship hopes were completely shot and the future of the team was put into question. Combine the Rose injury with the impending departure of Rose's backup C.J. Watson due to the dastardly luxury tax, and we get...

Report: Chicago Bulls Looking to Draft Kansas’ Tyshawn Taylor
June 28th, 2012 at 12:09 PM
Just minutes ago, I was talking about how I really wanted no part of Kansas point guard Tyshawn Taylor. While the guy has talent, his terrible decision-making and poor basketball IQ would make him a very meh selection for the Bulls, at least to me. I'd much rather just live...

Chicago Bulls Laying Low as 2012 NBA Draft Arrives
June 28th, 2012 at 11:15 AM
The 2012 NBA Draft has arrived, which means we're less than 24 hours away from the death of fake Twitter accounts that spew false rumors/deals that some people, even respected journalists/bloggers, somehow buy into. It was somewhat funny at first, but after awhile, it just got old. Although now that...

We're now just one day away from the 2012 NBA Draft, and rumors are flying every which way about possible moves. There have a been a few deals so far, but nothing has made the NBA world go boom...yet.  ***PHOTO1*** The Chicago Bulls have been involved in some of these rumors, most...

June 18th, 2012 at 9:49 PM
***PHOTO1*** We all know the story by now. With Derrick Rose sidelined until who knows when and C.J. Watson's future with the team in doubt, the Chicago Bulls may be in the market for a point guard when free agency begins July 1. Big names like Steve Nash and Jason...

All Signs Point to Chicago Bulls Attempting to Avoid Luxury Tax in 2012-13
June 8th, 2012 at 7:10 AM
The luxury tax. It's something the Chicago Bulls have avoided like the plague for almost as long as I can remember. And since the Bulls are likely not title contenders next season due to the injury to Derrick Rose, all signs point to them doing all they can to get...

Report: Chicago Bulls Expected to Waive C.J. Watson
June 6th, 2012 at 11:02 PM
***PHOTO1*** I'm going to take this with a grain of salt, but here goes. Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Chicago Bulls will not bring back C.J. Watson next season. The Bulls have until July 10 before Watson's $3.2 million salary (there's been some confusion on this...

Chicago Bulls with Decisions to Make on Key Members of ‘Bench Mob’
June 4th, 2012 at 10:27 AM
Over the past two seasons, the Chicago Bulls have prided themselves on their "Bench Mob." The Bulls have been one of the deeper teams in the NBA, and on plenty of occasions, we have seen the bench take over games with dominant defense and occasional flashes of offense.  But with Derrick...

Report: Chicago Bulls to Pursue Steve Nash and Jason Kidd This Offseason
June 4th, 2012 at 12:07 AM
***PHOTO1*** With Derrick Rose out until God knows when and C.J. Watson's future also in doubt, the Chicago Bulls may be in need for some point guard help for next season. And buried in a report full of cheery Rose progress updates and sad "Bench Mob" news, CSN Chicago's Aggrey...

Chicago Bulls 2011-2012 Player Review: C.J. Watson
June 1st, 2012 at 8:29 PM
After a fairly average year in the 2010-2011 season, Chicago Bulls point guard C.J. Watson came into this shortened campaign with fairly low expectations, or, at least to me he did. But regardless of the expectations anyone had, they undoubtedly increased the moment Derrick Rose began dealing with what would...

Chicago Bulls 2011-2012 Player Review: Omer Asik
May 29th, 2012 at 9:14 PM
***PHOTO1*** When the Chicago Bulls first announced that Turkish center Omer Asik would be joining the team for the 2010-2011 season, the news was greeted with a collective shrug and a grunt of "meh." After a free agency period that had already seen "The Decision" and the subsequent forming of...

Chicago Bulls 2011-12 Player Review: Kyle Korver
May 26th, 2012 at 7:32 AM
Known simultaneously as the closest thing to Ashton Kutcher outside of Ashton Kutcher and as a purveyor of copious amounts of hot sauce, Kyle Korver has established himself as a fan favorite in Chicago and one of the leading assassins in the league. He's an excellent role player and has done...
