Bulls GM Gar Forman spoke with about the Bulls longer-than-expected offseason The highlights:

• He says Derrick Rose‘s recovery is going well and he is hopeful the former MVP will be back next season.

• Moves the Bulls make this summer will be looking at the long-term health of the franchise.

• He will pick up the option for Tom Thibodeau and hopes to have a long term deal soon.

And don’t forget Bulls fans, you get Carlos Boozer back next year.

    He just had surgery a few days ago? You can’t really judge it by going well after a few days.

      yeah you can, I mean, the doc could have picked up the wrong chart and amputated his thumbs, dropped the knife in Rose’s leg and took out a hamstring by accident. At least now we know the doc didn’t screw up the cutting on his own.

    Gar Forman is the most straightforward, no BS guy I’ve ever heard in sports management. I’m actually looking forward to his next move.

    $15,000,000 plus per year wasted to prove how smart the Bull’s front office is. Let’s remember that classic definition of insanity from one of the smartest men who ever lived but never played or coached in the NBA. Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

    Amnesty isn’t the answer as all the Bulls games are already sold out and 45,000,000 is not that easy to make these days. If Boozer had any sense he renegotiate to give the team some cap room. Most of us could get by on 10 mil per year if we didn’t eat out too often.

    Gar may know his stuff on some issues but he will never live down the Boozer contract
