Chicago Bulls

  1. Amar'e Stoudemire will only kind of leave the Suns empty-handed

    Jul 8, 2010, 11:38 AM EDT

    UPDATE 11:38 AM: Although the plan described below is currently in place, LeBron James could make things a bit more interesting if he were to sign with the Knicks. From Paul Coro: However, if LeBron James picks New York today, the Suns could still have a chance at Lee. The Suns would have to do…

  2. LeBron's choices: It seems like Miami now, but in this drama things change

    Jul 8, 2010, 9:02 AM EDT

    We don’t know. We won’t really know until some time between 9 and 9:15 pm Eastern tonight. What we have now is drama. Manufactured drama. And that makes every rumor suspect — if you were trying to create drama for a show like this, you’d leak different things to different people. You’d keep everybody guessing,…

  3. Chicago is your free agency loser – but they could still be better than Miami

    Jul 7, 2010, 5:55 PM EDT

    UPDATE: 6:04 PM: Part one of the plan is coming together — the Bulls have an agreement with Carlos Boozer. Now, either LeBron changes his mind and comes to town, and they are instantly right there with the Lakers; or he doesn’t, they get a shooter like Allen or Redick, and they are still right…

  4. Bulls agree to a five-year, $75 million deal with Carlos Boozer, may have bought their way back into the LeBron sweepstakes

    Jul 7, 2010, 4:27 PM EDT

    UPDATE 5:47 PM: According to the Bulls’ website, Boozer’s deal will be worth about $75 million (via Mark Deeks/Sham Sports).

  5. Report: Teams going after Carlos Boozer in last-ditched effort to lure LeBron

    Jul 7, 2010, 2:03 PM EDT

    The LeBron James sweepstakes are not over. Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade will be in Miami, and it is possible that James will join them (if Toronto will take on Michael Beasley’s contracts or if the big three are all willing to take a pay cut). But other teams are trying to provide an alternative.…

  6. What does Wade/Bosh pairing mean for LeBron James? It doesn't help Cleveland's chances.

    Jul 7, 2010, 9:27 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh are teaming up in Miami. The Eastern Conference is getting tougher at the top, the road to the finals and a shot at the ring James desperately wants is getting harder. That leaves LeBron James with a tough choice: Stay at home in Cleveland with a good team that has…

  7. LeBron to make his announcement on ESPN Thursday night

    Jul 6, 2010, 10:10 PM EDT

    One hour that comes down to one word. LeBron James will make an announcement in an hour-long special Thursday night on ESPN, starting at 9 p.m. Eastern. Chris Broussard, the ESPN reporter who has the best contacts in the LeBron James camp of just about anyone, made the announcement on ESPN News. LeBron and his…

  8. Did Derrick Rose prefer Joe Johnson to LeBron James?

    Jul 6, 2010, 8:38 AM EDT

    Would you rather have Joe Johnson or LeBron James on your team? Exactly. It’s not even close. Even if you think there are flaws with LeBron’s game, there are far fewer than Johnson. LeBron is a true first option. Joe Johnson is a true second option on a title team. LeBron is a true max…

  9. Joakim Noah is getting richer this week

    Jul 5, 2010, 4:01 PM EDT

    Joakim Noah is not a free agent this summer. Guy is in the middle of his rookie deal, the Bulls could extend him right now, but they are focusing on bigger fish. Which is just fine with Noah, he keeps getting richer just sitting there doing nothing. That’s because the Bulls are using him to…

  10. Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh may be making documentary of free agency

    Jul 5, 2010, 12:21 PM EDT

    Just what we all have hoped for — the chance to relive this summer’s free agency over and over and over… Camera crews have been following Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh through the free agency process. Filming them going to meetings, flying around the country and having dinner with each other in Chicago. Of course,…

  11. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are waiting on Chris Bosh's decision

    Jul 4, 2010, 8:48 AM EDT

    A significant ramification of all of these free agents being free together and wanting to play with each other is the timing. If you’ll notice, every one of them is taking their sweet time. Joe Johnson was offered the max-max from Atlanta, and is still waiting to see if he can justify going with New…

  12. Teams are interested in Roger Mason for who he's been, but is that who he'll be next season?

    Jul 3, 2010, 7:40 PM EDT

    When the San Antonio Spurs picked up Roger Mason Jr. two years ago in free agency, it was an absolute steal. Mason seemed like an ideal fit alongside the Spurs’ big three; as a knock-down shooter who could fill in at either guard spot and handle the ball a bit, Roger fit the Spurs’ needs…

  13. Dwyane Wade: It's about the next 40 years, not the next 10

    Jul 3, 2010, 1:23 PM EDT

    View more news videos at: http://www.nbcchicago.com/video.Dwyane Wade didn’t give anything away and mostly talked in generalities in an interview with the NBC affiliate in Chicago. He did say that he is taking a big picture view, and he seems to be enjoying the process. But listen to him for yourself.

  14. Joe Johnson's having max contract remorse

    Jul 3, 2010, 3:10 AM EDT

    Joe Johnson said all along what he wanted was to be in Atlanta. Getting the Hawks front office and ownership all on one page for something is like herding cats, but Rick Sund did it — they got together and offered Johnson a max contract. Six years, $119 million. They did it because they are…

  15. Wade, Bosh meet with Bulls, now going to take Aretha Franklin's advice and think

    Jul 3, 2010, 2:37 AM EDT

    Friday night, the Chicago Bulls had a tandem with them in a room — Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh — that combined could turn them into an instant title contender.

  16. The Bulls big play

    Jul 2, 2010, 8:48 PM EDT

    Tonight, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh were meeting together with the Chicago Bulls in the office of Henry Thomas, Wade’s agent.

  17. Report: James, Wade to join forces in Chicago?

    Jul 2, 2010, 6:27 PM EDT

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, free agent guard Dwayne Wade had a second meeting with Chicago Bulls officials on Friday, and is seriously considering leaving the Miami Heat.  According to Wojnarowski, Wade coming to the Bulls could represent the best chance LeBron James has at joining forces with another superstar:  Wade and James…

  18. NBA free agency: These bright lights may or may not inspire you

    Jul 2, 2010, 12:15 PM EDT

    The team that plays in the World’s Most Famous Arena in the Greatest City on Earth is not exactly having a blockbuster start to free agency. They had their meeting with LeBron in Cleveland, a location they obviously would have preferred to avoid. Showing James the glitz and glitter of New York would have been…

  19. Teams shower their love on Chris Bosh — and don't be afraid to picture him as a Rocket

    Jul 1, 2010, 8:37 AM EDT

    Chris Bosh may be the key to the whole free agent summer — wherever he lands, he is going to be paired with another star. And that team is going to be instantly a contender. A lot of guys are going to change jerseys this summer, but he is the one who will bring winning…

  20. Report: Atlanta Hawks to offer Joe Johnson six-year max deal

    Jun 30, 2010, 3:19 PM EDT

    There is almost no bigger mistake a GM can make than paying a good player superstar money. That said, the reliable Michael Cunningham at the Atlanta Journal Constitution is reporting that the Atlanta Hawks want to keep Joe Johnson badly enough to offer him a six-year, fully max contract. If so Johnson will take it.…

  21. LeBron gets to choose his destiny as free agency begins

    Jun 30, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Living in a free country has many advantages. You get to freely select where you live, who you marry, what you do with your time, where you work, what you do, what you say, and how you feel. But along with those freedoms is a cost. It’s the money you need to accomplish what you…

  22. Bulls plan to get LeBron – get Bosh first

    Jun 30, 2010, 9:50 AM EDT

    When the midnight bell strikes tonight and phone lines light up across the NBA, the Chicago Bulls are not going to call LeBron James. Oh, they want him. Big time. They will be in Cleveland to make their pitch to him. But the Bulls think the way to James’ heart is not through fancy dinners…

  23. Brad Miller part of the Celtics' plan to retool on the fly

    Jun 28, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    The Celtics are flagged to make a substantial drop-off next season, and if they’re to remain competitive in an Eastern Conference that seems to be consolidating talent (LeBron and Bosh to the Bulls? Wade and Amar’e to the Heat?), Boston will have to make some pretty significant moves. That’s tough given their cap situation, but…

  24. LeBron in Chicago: The Jerry Reinsdorf question

    Jun 28, 2010, 11:17 AM EDT

    LeBron to Chicago, with Chris Bosh. Teamed with Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah. A force in the NBA for the next decade. That is unquestionably how it is going down, right? Except, there are a few questions. Starting with: Would Bulls onwer Jerry Reinsdorf be willing to pay the price for it? Does LeBron James…

    Jun 26, 2010, 10:37 AM EDT
